I had my first driving lesson yesterday. It turns out that I'm reasonably good at it so far. I got into third gear, managed a roundabout, reversed around a corner, and turned the car around. I got up to around 30mph too. I suspected that I was going to be absolutely awful, but it looks like I'm going to do okay at it.
Sues doesn't read my forums, so I'm safe posting this here:
She only got up to third gear on her fourth lesson. She's learning to drive at the moment too, same instructor, but she's had a bit of a headstart. The instructor told me not to mention that I'd got up to third gear, so I said I wouldn't, but I don't like lying so if she asked me a direct question then I would tell her truthfully.
When I got home Sues said to me...
'Did you get into second gear?'
'Yes,' I answered honestly.
