    Most people say " oh I can’t wait for my driving lessons" etc they love it.

    However, I don’t look forward to driving lessons. I would love to drive I just don’t like lessons. Probably just impatient/lazy.

    does anyone else feel similar to me

    Is there a problem with your instructor? You can always switch.

    I'm the same OP. I learnt for a very long time as a teenager, before reaching test standard, failing a test and giving up to start university.
    Years later, I'm now in the process of learning again; but I've now had eight lessons and dread each one for days before it happens. There's nothing wrong with them, and my instructor's great, but it's the knowledge that I feel I'm good enough to drive now, and though I WANT more practice before I take a test, I hate having it.

    I used to be the same as you. I had a decent instructor but he was very formal and made me feel really uncomfortable. I used to dread lessons and I'd make excuses to get out of them. I knew it wasn't normal because everyone I knew enjoyed lessons so I spoke to my best friends dad who strongly advised me to change instructors because I should be enjoying them. So thats what I did and it was the best decision. I'm so glad I listened. My new instructor is really good and I can have a laugh with him and I dont dread lessons anymore. If you dont enjoy lessons, you're never going to pass because you havent got the right mindset for driving, so I would advise you to change instructors.

    Maybe you are learning for the wrong reasons then. Normally if you are dreading something, or not wanting to do something generally you stop doing it. Maybe you should take a couple of weeks off from nyour lessons and think about if you really want to learn or not.

    I was the same as you, never looked forward to lessons. For the simple fact I had bad driving habbits from early teens, instructor used to go skits. I learnt and so did he, finally I enjoyed driving, likewise he enjoyed rolling in the passenger seat with me.

    Be patient turst me you'll enjoy it, if your instructor is crap - change!

    Probably not at first, but if your paying £22 for an hour of hate. Then I advise you quit driving. My first few lessons were gay, Andy was a bit over protective over something, I guess it was his car. Or the camera he stocked in his glovebox! Lol.

    What is it exactly that you don't like? And how long have you been learning for?

    I did quit driving.

    I'd have thought that people don't pay for driving lessons because they enjoy them though - they pay because it's what they have to do if they want to be able to drive.

    I'm the same but trust me, the clutch control gets better over time. I used to stall all the time at traffic lights but now i just stick the gas on a bit before off the clutch and then im away no probs

    If you enjoy such a task thats going to benefit you, enjoying it makes it easier. I would not pay to drive some numptys car, but I did to gain skills to prepare me for test day. Whilst taking lessons I made sure I enjoyed them. Just makes life a hell of a lot easier. I'd hate to see me try to perform with contempt:rolleyes:
