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!

Driving – Fifth Lesson

I drove away from the house.
Went in the opposite direction to the one that we normal take, so we went onto the Portway (a4) instead of through Shire.
I nearly got up to 50mph (80km/h), I think it was closer to 47/48mph (75/77km/h), but I stayed in fourth gear – should of gone up to fifth – then i would of hit 50!

I did a couple of “turns in the road” (aka 3 point turn), practicing clutch control, and quick steering, and moving slow
Practiced a bit of emergency stopping, i wasn’t braking hard enough!

Number of times stalled: lost count! Not really, just couldn’t be bothered to count them! (less than 6! 😉
