Driving – Tenth Lesson

Oh! Twenty hours of driving now…
And still no sign of taking my theory, or hazard tests, a bit more theory and hazard practice and ill book them

Onto driving now…
I am certainly getting better! 🙂 practiced parallel parking, left reverse, turn in the road, and emergency stop :phew:
Parallel parking could of gone better! the emergency stop was near perfect. As was the turn in the road and left reverse, but i do need to improve my observations on the last two.

Pulling back out side the house was a little hair-raising. I’m not going to say anymore, but lets just say the neighbours car needed to change its underwear! 😉

Bye for now

P.S.
I didn’t hit their car, but it was damned close, another foot or two…

Driving – Ninth Lesson

18 hours of driving already!?!?!?

This Monday practiced more parallel parking, then went onto bay parking, which is not going to be something I’m tested on if i take my test at Southmead, but i will need to know how…

I’m going to have to put in for my theory and hazard soon, it’ll probably be before, or soon after easter.

by my calculations, and taking the average length of time to pass of 46 hours of driving (with an instructor) i will be driving by the first/second week of July.

More next week
*beep*beep*

Driving – Seventh Lesson

Ive done seven lessons already!!! Thats 14 hours of driving, and I’m getting better.
Drove away from the house, and onto the Portway, and it was nice! My driving instructor said that he enjoyed it!

I reversed around a left corner three times, that was fun, I don’t think I hit the kerb, or the pavement, and I don’t think that i swung out too far.

Also did a bit more practicing emergency stops, four of them as a matter of fact.
On the third stop, the car skidded, and there was a little bit of smoke drift past the front of the car.
On the second circuit i saw the tyre marks left on the road, and they were going of to the side of the road.
Also practiced turns in the road

More next week
😉

Driving – Sixth Lesson

Did more turns in the road, and this time they were all completed in three manoeuvres – and I did not stall on one of them (at least I don’t think I did! I might of once or twice though)

This time I did get up to 50mph, but i stayed in fourth gear – maybe next time!

This lesson i just drove around, practiced holding the car on the clutch on a hill, and just letting the car roll forwards and back bringing it to a standstill

More next week
Stayed tuned!
