So i had my tenth driving lesson today at lunch. picked me up from college. hate that cos you are always worried that your friends will see you and u are gonna stall it or something :unsure:

Now i am frustrated. i thought i was getting the hang of it and after 10 thought i should be progressing at a good rate, but it seems i have gone back to one of my first lessons today. Did anyone else have this? i was doing well now everything went wrong, stalling, messing up gear changes, you name it i couldnt do it <_<

Oh well , perceverance (sp?) is the key to success as my dad always tells me.

Yes that happened to me Emma,as well as the embarrassment of friends seeing you,thats a killer!

I thought i was going really well and then have a bad lesson and everything seems to go wrong and it knocks your confidence but dont worry it will become second nature!!

It does take time but hang in there!!

:) Don't worry Emma, everyone does it. Stalling and botching gear changes happens no matter how long you've been driving :whistling: .

Take encouragement from a friend's experience, she passed her test last week despite the instructor changing his car 2 days before :o . She had one hour of driving in the new car before her test!! And passed 1st time :D .

Not to worry love, my best mate had a mock practical lesson yesterday and although he picked up driving extremely quickly, he found yesterdays lesson to be a disaster. I suppose its a matter of getting into the right frame of mind, we all have off days.

Hope you pass your test whenever you take it. :)

thanks for the words of encouragement guys, I am hoping to take my test by the summer. I predict at 1 lesson a week that i should be ready by early july. fingers crossed

then i will be stuck for giving everyone lifts when we go out so guess it will give my liver a rest lol

you will be fine next time don't worry. It is sods law though that when you are having a bad days driving (learning or not) you either see someone you know or the fittest guy you have ever seen is the one you nearly ran down at the traffic lights! :lol: good luck with your test when it comes around
