I had my second last driving lesson for the year today. The roads were less busy at 9.30am on a Sunday. We started off with independent driving. I hesitate with a hill start – it was a busy junction and I forgot to bring the clutch up to the bite. I didn’t stall but was conscious that the car was rolling back and there was a BMW right behind me. I got out of the junction, but I knew had it been a test, I would have lost some points.
All of my maneuvers were fine, except for, you guessed it. Reversing around the corner. I just need more practice. Maybe if I pushed my test to November 2012 I’d have time for plenty of practice.
As it turns out, I’m doing a swap with one of my instructor’s students who is booked in for a test at the end of January.
Lesson #23 next Sunday, and then I’m taking a break from lessons until the New Year.
