You’re always going to be nervous at the thought of starting driving lessons, let’s just take that as a given. You might have seen your Mum and Dad drive and they made it look easy, so it can’t be that hard right? You might have even been allowed to drive the car onto the driveway once or twice. You’re now getting ready to move into the big time and take your first proper driving lesson. The appointment with the Driving instructor Market Harborough company is booked in and this is it your first taste of being in control of a car. But what can you expect on this first foray out on to the road. What does the indicator really do and do you need to know what a distributor is or where the battery goes. More importantly will you hit anything and if you do what then?
First of all don’t panic. It’s very daunting as you know that you’ll possible have a lot of other drivers out there with you possibly moaning at you. The best thing to do is just shut them out. Don’t forget they were learners once too and they never had to worry about taking theory tests and practical’s. Some people on the road are old enough to not have taken a test at all (though there are not many of them left now)! Imagine that you just bought a car (there were less of them and they were a lot slower mind) and you drove off in it, no questions asked! It wasn’t until later that the Government at the time decided that as there were more and more cars on the road it might be any idea to make sure that the people driving them had at least some knowledge of what they were doing. The new test that you will eventually take is a lot harder because there are more road users now than ever before so you need to be confident in what you are doing. One good piece of news you can go into the motorway now and learn there but that’s going to be a lesson for the future. It’s a good thing that you can as it will prepare you and you could end up on the motorway a lot.
What if you make a mistake or worse hit another car? Don’t worry. The Driving instructor will be fully insured for that kind of thing. You need to drive with awareness and avoid having an accident all the same but relax; other drivers will see you are a learner and should give you more time and space. Secondly, the driving instructor’s car is specially built so that they have dual controls for the brake and accelerator so if you don’t see something they will.
Best of luck, you will soon pick it up.
