Just pretend the instructor isn't there and you should be fine. Just try to follow the speed limit, stop completely at intersections, watch out for pedestrians (no matter how retarded they are, they always have the right of way). I wish I could run them over sometimes, but that's another story.

Make sure you don't tailgate (follow too closely to the car in front of you), anticipate turns and traffic. Oh, always use your turn signal.

Your welcome, because since you've driven before--at least you'll know what if feels like to control the car so you don't swerve too much like I did. That alone makes it a whole lot easier. I never driven in my life before which was why I barely passed.

I don't think there is really a procedure for that. I did that too and what I did was just pull to the curb and park the car. That's it. It's a lot easier when there's no car around.
