It was very cold and icy when I started my driving lesson at 8.30 this morning. Thankfully the sun started shining soon after and the temperature rose to about 3 degrees celsius within the hour.
The drive itself was rather uneventful. I remembered to check my mirrors a bit more today, which was a positive improvement from the last few lessons. Unfortunately the person I swapped my test date with failed last Wednesday due to a mistake made 2 minutes before the end of the test.
The positive news is that I’ve driven our new little car around. This evening, I drove us to Sainsbury’s and back. Hubby guided me in bay/reverse parking in the car park which I found stressful. Earlier, I filled the car up with petrol at BP. I think I need to clock a good few hours driving the car before it feels comfortable. I cut-out at a junction, the car jerked a little and I even got flashed for driving slow (I was pulling out of my driveway for god sake) despite having my L-plates on.
I might be doing my lesson in the next few weeks – I have a date booked but I’m trying to swap it for a Sunday. I’m a bit nervous about driving post-test (assuming I pass), but if I keep driving the little car, I should be ok.
