Re: 36 and learning to drive!

It sounds like you are doing great.

Lots of new pupils do struggle when you first start off.

It also sounds like your instructor is taking it easy, so thats great to hear.

If you feel like at any point that you dont know what you are doing then please ask, i find lots of pupils who i teach tend to not ask questions which really bugs me. Ask and you will find out!

Good luck with future lessons.

Re: 36 and learning to drive!

Just read your comments Orchid.  Did you ever pass your test?

Re: 36 and learning to drive!

You seem to think your age is a hindrance... I once taught a lady much older than you. She liked my style of teaching...using diagrams as well as practical driving.

Thanks for the advice c-way smile
My instructor said that if he hadn't have been in the car he would never have believed it. He said my actual driving was fine (apart from positioning to the left on the one way street, as we actually did that road on a lesson yesterday) It was just my nerves..it was like a vicious cycle...get nervous...stall....get more wound up...stall again...and on it goes.
The one thing that i thought i would fail on...which were my manouvers (cos i don't do them correctly100% of the time) ..i didnt even fail on. I never thought for one minute that i would stall the car...and on so many occasions. It's the fact that it's a test that makes me nervous...not the actual driving.When we are on lesson and im practicing reverse bay park...if we go to the test centre to do it...8 out of 10 times i do it completely wrong...yet i can do it everywhere else!!! The fact that it's the test centre just makes me nervous. I just don't know how to get over it.


Unfortunately, nerves destroy a lot of great drivers. It's always sad to see a competent driver get really nervous and fail on something totally out of the ordinary.

Mock driving tests might help get used to test conditions and nerves.

Keep trying, you will get there in the end! Good luck with it!

Re: 36 and learning to drive!

I was just reading this topic, shame... I really wanted to find out what happened. Hopefully one day WildOrchid comes back and tells us what happened.

Re: 36 and learning to drive!

Many youngsters especially the young males feel "bulletproof" and have to be urged to look properly and not to ignore possible hazards, the older learner with more world experience tend to be better at this.
I often explain this to older learners if they feel embarrassed about late learning.
