First driving lesson tomorrow
I always make a point of telling my pupils on their first lesson that they’ve got a big safety net called me and my dual controls, so you can’t hit anything, or crash into anything. Apart from roadies 😉
And there is no such thing as a stupid question! If it doesn’t make sense, ask. If it still doesn’t make sense, ask again. It’s not your job to understand it, its the instructors job to teach it in a way you can understand.
Enjoy, and let us know how you got on.

Every time the instructor says ‘Turn left at the junction’ say ‘Right!’
I used to do this without realising, and only stopped when the instructor started saying, ‘No, Left!’ to humour me 🙂
The best moment of my driving lessons was when a classmate tailed us out of school in his souped up Nova, and my instructor took us out to the bypass. ‘At the T junction, lets turn right and boot it up the hill flat out and lose the loser’. I don’t mind if you spin the wheels when we pull out 🙂Posted 5 years agosaleemMember
Good luck, keep at it until you pass, I didn’t, moved to London to use the underground then drove for years with no licence, I was bad, I know I shouldn’t have done it. In the end I went and did my theory and driving test in under 2 months. Just keep at it and don’t give up no matter what, I did and regretted it.Posted 5 years agocheekyboyMember
My second driving lesson was a two hour affair, after the first hour we stopped for a quick de-brief in a supermarket carpark.Posted 5 years ago
Suddenly and without any warning a masked gunman entered the rear of the car, he pistol whipped the instructor and made me help put the guy into the boot, I was the forced to drive at gunpoint to the on-site filling station and fill up at the cards only pump using my own debit card, this really annoyed me as it took me overdrawn to the tune of £42 plus a £30 fee, after that he place an old duffel bag on the passenger seat and then made me tell him jokes, after a while the bag started to vibrate and I asked him what was in the bag, he went bezerk and cocked the gun and told me to mind my own business, we were on the A66 heading to Penrith when he told me to pull over onto a side road, he then got out of the car and sprinted off in the direction of Appleby leaving the duffel bag on the seat.
I retrieved the instructor from the boot who had regained consciousness and called the Police who arrived lights flashing within 7 minutes
