Great to hear you didn't stall
If your on a flat piece of road that will be the easy bit, it'll be when you come to little hills and big hills it'll be much harder, but your deffinatly off to a great start. I remember back when i first started driving it took me a while to get the hand of setting off on a slight hill, but it just comes with practice, i guess if youve also got someone who is a proper teacher showing you aswell that might help, i kind of went for the illegal approach to my first bit of driving, didn't even have a provisional
obviously i tried to keep it off road in quiet places.
Good to hear you enjoyed it aswell, thats one of the best things about driving in general, in particular when your new to driving you'll probably love it.
As Grim also said, driving is pretty easy when you get the basics, it just takes abit of time to adjust to the car, and learning road positions and junctions / round abouts etc, all in all its not too hard at all, you'll soon build up some good confidence in yourself.
As me and grim said before though (he posted seconds after me
) you really could do with trying to get yourself at least 2 lessons a week, and if you do try and space them out like Tuesday and Thursday etc, its always good to have a break between lessons with your tutor, i always found that anyway, it gives time for things to sink in, and you kind of go over it in your head and figgure alot of it out for yourself.
Oh and yeah, if you can get insured on another car, or get out of the way in one, as your so new to driving, any driving at all will be a huge bonus to yourself and will help you get through the first stages very quickly.
Good luck with your other lessons, and let us know how it goes.
EDIT: its only just occoured to me, you'll be more than likely learning in a diesel, so you'll probably be fine when it comes to stalling etc, they are great for learning in as they have so much torq they are hard to stall. Once youve learned all the clutch control in a diesel, you'll probably find it quite easy to adjust straight to a petrol, but petrol cars for learning in can be hard when learning how to control a clutch, you can stall them so much easier than a diesel, infact ive never stalled a diesel once come to think of it This post has been edited by Dano2k0: Apr 30 2008, 03:11 PM
