I Remember My First Driving Lesson On a Major Road

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 30 People

    .

    I loved my driving instructor, he was really cool. He was from Hugary and was a part time DJ. He would give me mix tapes every now and then. He understood my need to drive like a 18yr old boy but kept me in line. I failed my test two times. The first because I didn...

    Dear Old Dad

    My dad was my driving teacher. He thought he was a great driver, and he was a sunday school teacher.  So I sat in the drivers seat while he showed me the ropes. At first he told me to just coast so I could get the hang of steering. That went fine. Once my foot was...

    And It Was Scary!

    In fact, my first two driving lessons were scary! My very first lesson was in the middle of an English winter, in the pitch dark, in country lanes with deep snow everywhere and a driving blizzard coming at me. When the instructor arrived I asked if he'd rather re-schedule the...

    Look Out, Jersey Driver!

    I was 17 in the early 80s and my instructor took me out on US 46 in Paterson, NJ, over to NJ 17, onto NJ 4 in Paramus (the 4/17 intersection at the time was the second most dangerous in the state!), back into Paterson via NJ 4, onto local streets to I-80, to NJ 23 via the...

    I Was 12........

    And my dad let me drive the car for the first time. It was an old Pontiac with an automatic transmission and everything was going extremely well until my dad told me to turn right at the next street, which happened to be a dirt road. I did. However, I didn't realize I needed to...

    On The Road....

    Learning To Drive.

    I took driving lessons in 1982 in a bright lemon coloured Mini.  I remember the experience very well.  My instructor's name was Vince and we used to go out in the car every Saturday morning for an hour.  I remember it took me ages to get the hang of a three-point...

    Nervous Wreck

    When I first started learning how to drive, I had to drive on a express way. You can imagine how excited, yet scared I was. To this day, I still can't tell if my driving instructor either had a lot of faith in me or wanted to scare me. Of course, I did well...for a beginner...

    Dodgy Instructor
