I passed! Hurrah! I actually didn’t think I had, I made more mistakes this time, and noticed each one. But none of them were dangerous, so I got a pass. I had to do a parallel park, which went fine. No emergency stop. I did get a bit lost on the independent driving section, but… Continue reading Driving test – passed!
I was supposed to be having my driving test today. Unfortunately it was cancelled due to the examiner being off. It is very frustrating as I had got myself all psyched up for it and have been left feeling nervous for nothing.

I was feeling very nervous before this lesson. Messing up the hill start at the beginning didn’t really help matters. I had a slight panic I couldn’t fit in as the wheel was brushing my bump as I drove, my instructor pointed out I could adjust the steering wheel a bit more, so that made… Continue reading Driving lesson #16 – 31 weeks
