Driving Lesson #41, #42 and #43

Like last time in the run up to my test I have not blogged every single lesson, however after a week of Holiday and the last three lessons I am going to be taking my test again tomorrow at 14:32. I think I am ready to take the test, I felt that way last time - don’t know if I was or not, I am not the person to judge that....

Driving Lesson #40

This post is four days late, and I have nothing to Report. Couple of weeks until my test - I have kind of lost interest in driving, I would like to get it over and done with but I am not overly worried about the test itself. Drive Safe!

Driving Lesson #39

Had quite an enjoyable drive today, did four manovures first time round (reverse round a corner, reverse park, bay parking and turn in the road), that’s not to say they were without error but they were passable. Almost didn’t see a car driving round the Sainsbury’s car park, Kev put his foot on the break at the same time I put the break down, he was faster though so I felt the pedal go out from underneath my foot....

Driving Lesson #38

It might be that I am tired, and hungry but I got a little fed up with driving. It takes quite a lot of concentration and it gets me home more tired than if I had sat on a bus for a hour and a half. It sound silly but sitting on that bus for two hours is the only time I get to relax and pray. Two things you can’t really do when you are driving, the other thing that a bus lets you do when you are on it and if you are feeling up to it is give your full concentration to the book or podcast you are trying to extract information from which is really nice....

Driving Lesson #37

I am getting slack updating the blog, I had my first lesson after my driving test yesterday, in an odd kind of way I actually felt more confident. I know I failed the test however having someone else in the car and not having it all go totally wrong gave me some confidence. The lesson yesterday basically involved driving round finding places to do manoeuves, I make a point of saying “finding” as it was strangely difficult – at one point a van driver decided to park on the corner I was in the process of reversing round, amusingly enough he even nodded and smiled at us....

But first a little bit of information about the Burges Hill driving test center two important things: The test center does have a toilet Don’t be tempted to touch the tap in the toilet it fell off when I used it As for the test itself the results were as follows:...

Driving Lesson #34, #35 and #36

Sorry to anyone who was expecting posts on Thursday and Friday time kind of caught up with me, my lessons since last Wednesday have been much better, I still made a few mistakes here and there. Drove under some pressure after one of the Pastors at my church decided to follow us along Church Street and finally left us going up The Upper Drive apparently I handled it well. So tomorrow is my test thank you to everyone who has wished me luck and said they were praying for me....

Driving Lesson #32

7 Days to Go Funny old day today, made one sill mistake that if in a test would have been a fail. Spent a fair bit of time today parking in bays, started off at ASDA, who despite being in the empty part of the car park told Kev he could not teach learners in Car Parks. Went down to Marine Drive and had people driving behind us while trying to park in the bays....

Driving Lesson #31

8 Days till the test Got a lesson every day this week, so I am just going to do short summaries rather than write anything at length. Aced turning round in the road again, missed a check on my reverse park and went too close, then too wide then got it right on reverse round the corner. Also had a tendency to drive a little to far right on faster roads, must remember the two points on the windscreen the markings should pass through....
