Your A.B.C.s Accelerator , Brake, Clutch.
It's like being back at school. I'm one to talk. I can drive, but missed out on taking the test. I'd have to learn all over again now.
Good for you doing it. Image

Life changed, caring role took over 24/7. I might take lessons again. reading your
posts is getting me interested again.

thats good Image it is quite a lof money when you add it up. i have 1hour driving lesson it fit in with mun (caree). i found out last week that i have to take my theory in chester and driving test in wrexham Image so my theory test going to cost more than i thought and we would have to use park n ride never took mum in her wheelchair on public transport before Image should be fun when the time comes as its a hell of a job tp park in chester city centre but i am not sure where the theory centre is Image Image Image
Good luck with lesson today. Image
thank you Image got to take mum to have her feet done now Image
lesson was ok but we started added things like changing gears (1st to 2nd and back again) and slowing down with brakes and using the clutch to edge out of the juction and finding the "biteing point) with the clutch then pressing the accerlerator and of we go. stearing not too bad this week but i stalled the car for the first time Image . i pulled the clutch up to fast and it was like a kangaroo pulling out and the stopped right in the middle of the road Image . some how i have to try and practice but i cant use mums care or anyone elses as the insurance is to high and paying for lessons on top. as they are changing the theory from jan 2012 she wants to take the theory test before then so i better keeping practicing but i only just pass by the skin of my teeth Image

think i fluffed it a bit today but then she said i was streets ahead other learner drives Image we shall see next week we are going to start turning right out of junction. lets hope we have no more kangaroo's and stopping in the road Image Image
