    Wish Me Luck - Learning To Drive

    Eek! Have just taken the plunge and booked myself on a 10-week intensive driving course - I start on Monday night after work!!

    Due to some changes/a promotion at work, I've been forced to change my life-style somewhat and have been asked to learn to drive a car. I've been getting along fine up until now on my scooter, but it's time to move on to my very own doom-buggy! Hubby is taking me out to buy a car on Sunday so I have a practice vehicle between lessons and hopefully I'll be out and about on my own in no time.

    Any advice for a nervous 31 year old would be much appreciated!!! It all feels a bit like a baptism of fire for me at the moment... yikes!!!

    Good luck, but I don't know about that driving on the left side of the road;lol.
    No really, best of luck.

    Good luck to you! Hope it is easier than you think. As for the driving on the left side of the road - it is probably considerably easier if you learn that way and it is your normal frame of reference, you don't have anything to compare it to.

    Re: Wish Me Luck - Learning To Drive

    Thanks for all your wishes guys... I'm starting to get super nervous now. First lesson is tomorrow at 6pm!

    Have paid a deposit on a car today which is a cute little Smart car in silver (I've already nick-named it the Doom Buggy - not sure if that's a good idea! LOL) - will pick it up next weekend - woo-hoo!!!

    Anyway, off to swat up in my Highway Code... fingers crossed I'll make it through lesson one in one-piece!
