How I did it: I passed my driving test so no longer need this goal on my list.
I made the most of my lessons by making sure I concentrated and listened to what my instructor was telling me. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
I had an amazing driving lesson yesterday. I wouldn’t even call them a driving lesson because I don’t go to learn anything new..I just go to spend time with my instructor and I think he realises that.
Anyway he said to me that he no longer needs to tell me what to do because I know and just do it. He said that I’m a very good driver and he can’t see why I’d fail my driving test because there is nothing wrong with my driving. It’s so nice to hear because I am already worried about my driving test even though it’s weeks away. It’s because I know what to expect and I am worried I’m going to do two dangourous things again in the last couple of mins of the test, just like last time, which were mainly my instructors fault.
I don’t really take my lessons seriously and haven’t done for a long time now. I know how to drive to the level I’m meant to drive and just spend the time chatting away with my instructor and having a laugh. He knows he is a big distraction but we really enjoy one anothers company and it’s great but I don’t think his wife would appreciate him having a 26 year old female friend. I so want to be his friend at the end of all this but I can’t see this being allowed by his wife and it sucks because of how well he and I get on, we have a connection and I love him to bits. 4 years ago
Is all that seems to go on in my lessons these days lol. I don’t think I have anything to learn and can do everything as well as I’m going to be able to do them. I’m just having lessons to keep up my driving while I wait for my test. I must of had at least 8 lessons, so far, that I didn’t really need but I do really enjoy spending time with my driving instructor. We have such a great rapour and I’m going to be sad when I pass and don’t get to see him weekly because I think he’s amazing and yeah I do like him in a way I shouldn’t do but he’s married which I think sucks but that’s life I guess.
We get on like a house on fire and laugh and joke. I don’t mess around with my driving because that would be pointless but we have such a good time during the lesson. It’s going to be very hard for me to say goodbye to him at the end of it all. 4 years ago
...was amazing! I’ve not had one in a month with Christmas and New Year and then last week my instructor having to cancel on me because his car was in the garage.
I did wonder if my skills has gone down the drain over the time I’d not driven but they were fine. I was able to pull off the maneovers and that’s the main thing that matters.
It did hurt my legs and feet though, I guess we use certain muscles in our feet and legs for driving and with me not using them for a month they really ached during the lesson and afterwards.
It was great to see my instructor again too because of how much I like him and also how much I enjoy spending time with him. It is without a doubt a true pleasure to spend time with him and we talk none stop for the full lesson and we talk about anything and everything from the most random thing to really personal things. I feel some kind of bond with him and of course I have feelings which are increasingly hard to hide from him. 4 years ago
When I started this goal the meaning of it was to make the most of each lesson by learning and improving as much as I can each lesson. But now I am at the standard needed for my driving test and I am just having lessons to keep this standard up whilst I wait for a test.
Now I am in a situation where I think this goal means something more on a personal level for me because my driving instructor and I get on like a house on fire. We’ve just hit it off and he’s someone who is very much like me, he is on the same level as me and has the same mentality as me and we just have so much in common and now spend the lesson talking none stop about so much.
I feel like I can talk to him about everything and I feel so comfortable about him. He makes me smile so much and he makes me laugh and he makes me sooo happy. I don’t know what is going on but I know I have some feelings for him and I look forward to seeing him so much and I can never wait until my next lesson….the only problem is he is married. It sucks he is married but I can’t help the way I am feeling about him no matter how hard I try, it’s just so hard.
Today I had a lesson and he got on better than ever and I never want the lesson to end. I just want to spend as much time with him as I can and he doesn’t realise the full extent of my feelings but he has a fair idea from what I’ve said to him.
So the goal of making as much from each lesson as I can comes to a new level of things and meanings for me but what as of yet I am unsure. 4 years ago
I had a really good lesson today, much better than yesterday, and I found myself even enjoying it too which is great.
I did reverse parking today for the first time and I don’t like it and that’s only because I have to learn to do it to a high standard which I will never use once I pass. Anyway I did that three times and the first and third times went great but second time wasn’t too great.
I also did my three-point turn on a narrow road and passed that as well and my instructor didn’t even need to talk me through it which was great.
Then I did my junction reverse to the left which went really well even though it was probably the toughest corner in Blackburn.
All in all it went really well except a couple of times when I kept putting the clutch down to go round the corner. I think I’ve done that heaps before but he noticed it today and I got out of the habit quickly and I hope I don’t do it again.
I don’t have another lesson until next Thursday so I get a week break which is nice, but I miss them and my instructor when I’m not on a lesson lol. 4 years ago
..wasn’t as productive as I would of liked. I didn’t feel well so I wasn’t able to concentrate as much and it just didn’t feel like I learned anything new or progressed at all.
I am starting to think that I won’t be really for my driving test in 5/6 weeks time because I don’t think I am having enough lessons. I’ve had 5 so far, I have 1 tomorrow and only 1 booked next week with 2 booked the week after. I really don’t think I will be ready for the test because I think now things should be coming together more and I should of done (gone over) more things but I feel like I’ve not really done much. 4 years ago
Today’s lesson was really good. Half the time I don’t feel like I am learning anything because it’s not like my instructor is forcing things down my throat. I tend to spend most of my time driving round the town down roads I have never been down and I am always amazed at where they bring me out.
We just drive around really and encounter all kinds of different things like various speed limits and hszards and diffeeent areas etc and he doesn’t always tell me what I am meant to be doing, he leaves it to me to work out and if I don’t work it out then he hints at me and I normally get it then. He rarely has to straight out tell me and I think that’s good. I think the hints and waiting for me to work it out helps me learn how to do things the way I am meant to do and it’s like learning but without it and I just like the way of learning.
If he practice anything like turns in the road I never do them more than 2-3 times per lesson which is good because when I have to do the same thing over and over agsin I find myself getting worse.
So far, so good.
I have two lessons next week and I am looking forward to them even though it’s nice to have a few days break now because today’s lesson was tiring. 4 years ago
