I’m going on my first, proper, actually on-the-road-with-a-professional-driving-instructor driving lesson in 4 hours. I have managed to put it off since December, but now my dad is forcing me on the road *cough* Previously, I have used the driving school’s crappy “simulator” thing….it looks like a Sega racing arcade machine, but more “car-like”. And it was total crap, because to me it just felt like a racing game (but with one car lol). Then my dad gave me informal lessons in a car park – but I know hardly anything. Plus I managed to nearly kill several people, attract the attention of the police and half-wreck my car at least once.
As I said to my dad, the car should be suitable for left handed people (i.e. me)!! The steering wheel should be on the left (or possibly the middle) so you don’t bash into the curb, and the brake should be the left pedal instead of the right. He didn’t agree, but I know I’m right And for all you people going “huh??” right about now, I live in the UK where people drive on the left and have the steering wheel on the right (psychos). Actually, I was watching this programme where an American drove her American car in England, which had the steering wheel on the left. Maybe I should get an American car?
My stupid driving instructor (who I have not yet met but I know is called Matthew) has mailed me this list of driving lessons…I said I wanted weekends and preferably afternoons so I don’t have to get up at 9am…so of course he’s booked all my lessons for Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, which is when I’m in college and he’s even managed to choose times which I’m supposed to be in exams. Clever *applauds*.
So yeah, you probably won’t see me ever again after this since I bet he makes me “drive” on the road, in which case I will kill both of us in less than a minute. Not on purpose you understand. If I do survive, I’ll tell you how it went
