Default Re: Driving lesson troubles.

On the speed topic, no one goes the speed limit on my road. It's 35. Should be 45 IMO. I get tailgated a lot since I'm one of the handful that goes within 5 miles of 35 (I go 40 and the cops don't care). Sometimes I get a guy tailgating me and I feel like I'm being pushed and involuntarily go a bit faster. My first traffic stop was for going 50 in the 35 zone, it was just a warning, but I learned. The cop just caught me when I was almost home from a long drive (like 500 feet from my driveway) and I wasn't paying attention to my speed... I go about 5 over every speed limit unless the cops are picky in an area.

Actually, forgetting to shoulder check is a major straight away. Stalling is only a minor.

My instructor told me that if you forget to shoulder check (for example), and the instructor pulls you over and tries to get you to do it again and you don't, he/she'll take it as a risk for public safety and walk out of the car to the driving school, however far away it is, leaving you in the car until they get help to you.

Haha, anyway, my lesson is at 2pm UK time, so wish me luck. I've only really just got up, at 12pm.

EDIT:

I'm back, and it went better than last week, but I'm putting back the exam to around the start of June, so I get an extra 4 lessons to iron stuff out.
I won't be losing any money in doing so, except for another 2 lessons of payment, so I think its the best solution.
I'm not going to pass, I know I'm not.

From reading the other driving threads it sounds like driving is an awful lot harder over there across the pond..

Well, I've changed the date now, giving myself one more month of practise.
I don't feel ready right now.
