On the afternoon of my 17th birthday I celebrated reaching this milestone by partaking in my first driving lesson. It was a momentous occasion as freedom was inching ever closer. Being able to drive to see my friends instead of expecting my parents to chauffeur us all around was all I could think about.
I went onto pass my theory test with 35/35 (first time) and my actual practical test with only 4 minors (first time). My mum had almost worn holes in the carpets by pacing around the house whilst I sat my practical test. There was no need to worry though as I do take after her with my driving style. Mum has always been a confident driver and it rubbed off on me completely!
Friends can guarantee that they will always learn new words when I am driving. I maybe an aggressive driver, having yet to shake off my “girl racer” days but I always ensure my passengers are safe. As a passenger seat driver – I am too quick to call shotgun to be a back seat driver- I am terrible, it is the whole control aspect. My instructions used to cause many arguments with the ex, but I do put that down to him being a terrible driver anyway!
Knowing exactly what I am like, have you ever considered what type of driver you are?
