Arrow The Driving Lesson Thread!!

Hi Guys n Girls!!

I just had my second driving lesson today and i drove into the curb and totally messed up the instructers wheel trim...oops

I was just wondering if any of you lot are having lessons and how is it going?? Have u done your theory test...i had lessons a few years ago and did the theory which i failed misserably..i got 23 out of 35!

Maybe we can keep this thread going and give regular updates on how we are doing!

im really struggleing to find the bite on the clutch and it takes me 2 or 3 goes till i can actually set off...lol....im really bad!!

speak to u all soon love

I've been learning for two years and am still no where near my test. I failed my theory twice (29 (got one question with 2 possible answers and selected the wrong one) and 24)

I see from your profile your studying Lesiure and Recreation. Ive got two months left of that course at Barnet College

Just don't hit any living thing....
The hardest part is the first time you would drive alone.... after that you kinda get used to it!!!

"I probably respect Monica more than any other player out there. Not only as a player, but also as a good friend, and an amazing person. I was so happy to see her play well last week, and then score some big upsets here this week. But I was also very happy to close it out in two sets, because as we've seen these past few weeks, Monica never gives up." - Lindsay Davenport after defeating Monica Seles to win the estyle.com Classic title
