“For The Very First Time”

published 18/02/2007

One of the best skills you can ever learn

An emotional rollercoaster

Yikes, turning 17 was more daunting than I thought it would be, what with all my friends already learning to drive (or having passed) I almost felt pressured to get through the whole process, although not overly - I mean I know I had many happy months still ahead of me being a passenger and...

Very expensive, nerve wracking, and frustrating!

Passing your test! ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ When I first started taking my driving lessons I actually thought very little about the actual test itself and just carried on as normal. I sort of knew I was good enough to pass and had a feeling I’d pass first time… Yep, this feeling was wrong, but there you...

Passing!

Failing and getting a rubbish examiner!

It's such a wonderful feeling, passing your driving test, the freedom to go whever you want, whenever you want, provided you've got petrol, insurance, MOT, tax and oh yeah......a car! Most of us will choose to learn to drive and there are a few who would rather park their bums on a set on the bus...

Satisfactory

I got there eventually

Money down the drain to money grabbers

This is mostly about my driving instructor experience than on how to actually drive. - Be warned. By 21 you would have thought that I'd have learned how to drive by now. Especially as where I live it's common for wee spides (chavs) to have bagged themselves a car somehow as soon as they turn 17...

The F word - Failing

I read all these posts frantically before taking my test and they really did given me an insight into what it is like, so I thought I would add my own contribution I passed my driving test on Tuesday (woo!!) but it was a long journey starting when I was 17… (If you are just interested in the...

Amazing sence of achievement, and FREEDOM!!!

Very soon you become Mum's TAXI!

Yes that's right, 3 months. I had just turned 40 in May, when I decided this was the year to go for it, so to speak, and get myself that much desired full driving license. So I applied for my very first provisional license in July. My neighbours two daughters had passed first or second time with...

Right, time for a really experienced driving test failer to tell you about how a test is done. Haha. :D You would have thought that I'd become some sort of expert on failing the driving test after the many driving tests I've failed, so I should write some sort of "How to fail a driving test...

The FEELING OF PASSING!!! The little pink licence....

Driving was quite a shit experience for me. Nothing bad actually happened in general but i just hated learning. Everybody i knew loved learning to driv but i thought the actual process of learning how to be a good driver was just embarrasing and boring when you had a professional sat next to you...

Freedom!!!!!!!!!!

It costs far too much!

The best feeling that I had when learning to drive was actually passing my test - despite taking me 4 times to do! But please, just don't let that put you off. When I took my test, it was only £38 but a driving instructor friend of mine tells me that it is now nearer £45 - and that is only four...
