    So...

    I started my driving lessons a while back (although I'm taking a break now because of schoolwork). Since I have never driven a car before that it was kinda hard to get used to (esp. b/c it's a stick-shift) but I think I'm getting there. On my third lesson I almost hit a...

    Had My G1 For 3 Years Now...

    I got my G1 licence when I was 17 and my parents told me that they would be teaching me how to drive since I could not afford the thousand dollars for lessons. The first 2 years were lacking in actual driving time. I paralleled parked twice in that time and maybe got a total of...

    I have had about 18 and a half hours of practice

    so far, not including the 6 hours I've spent with a driving instructor. Today, after a long 10 hour shift at work, my mother picked me up so I could get a bit more practice by driving home. Naturally, I was a little tired from being on my feet all day. I was approaching a set of...

    When I'm driving with my mum,

    I get very confused with directions. I am the driver I decide on the direction. But when mum is in the passenger seat she is very much a back seat driver. I'm going to have a heart attack the next time she screams to go a certain direction. There's no preparation for it either...

    It Is a Massive Chore Learning!!

    I don't think being on the road is half as bad as the Theory book we have to learn here in Ireland, before we even get our license. The Theory book is as thick as a donkey's doo dah, with lots of cr*ap, not much different to the Rules of the Road... but full of literally hundreds...

    Intensive Course

    I learnt to drive 7 years ago and got up to test standard but failed because I was so nervous. I am now doing an intensive course and 12 hours in, I am so fed up, I don't feel like I will ever be up to test standard. I feel like nothing is coming together like it used to be! I am...

    Deux Fois 16 Ans

    I am officially MORE than twice the minimum legal driving age. It took me awhile to even bother getting interested in a license, I grew up with no car and my mum essentially put it in my head that we were too poor to drive since birth, and it just stuck. She told me a lot of...

    My grandmother had bought a new car.

    She has a very long driveway and told me she had no problem with me driving her car back and forth on the drive way. So me and my little brother got in the car. My little bro turns on the radio. One of our favorite songs come on and we turn it up really loud and goofing off down...
