    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...

    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...

    Dodgy Instructor

    I remember my first driving lesson, I was 17 and the instructor picked me up from school. We then sat in the side streets while he told me all about his car and what to do and the whole time I sat there thinking how slimy and creepy he was!!! Still he was smaller than me. We then...
