  • Two days ago I went on my first drive and I have to be honest I wondered why my instructor let my drive after like 10 minutes, she showed all lights and said ok go drive after 30 minutes I was in 3rd fear going 90 km per hour. Now, you might ask How? Well the car I was using was BMW series 3. And I played Dirt 2.0 for a week straight what made me immune for fast speed.

  • mixing driving styles does work, here in kenya we do both following the rules and drive manic with the flow since the public transport vans and busses get their way and have more experience while the private cars have some drivers that are some of the most terrible drivers and they are the issue so those of us who drive well follow the rules but have to get around and manage other drivers

  • German here. Even though i have to admit i have been quite of a slacker with our app, the theoretical test worked on the first go. However, it took me 3 attempts for the practical one simply for the reason of stress/panic due to the test situation (second one barely lastet 2 Minuten -.-). Most important advice would probably be to just try to stay calm and always keep in mind that it will work out eventually, otherwise your instructor wouldnt have let you take the test yet.

  • Want to pass your car test first time? Pass your bike test, ride for 2 years (sensibly) and book your car test a few days before Xmas and in the evening. Assessor wants to go home and can't be assed, he'll see your already pink license, and pass you with ease. My instructor almost fell asleep and passed me with 0 minors. Drive well during the lesson obviously

  • Nobody washes my or the Mrs car but me. Always wash it down with a hose or pressure wash before going anywhere near it with a sponge! The local car wash will ruin your paintwork and insult you in a language you don't understand while smiling and taking your money, and if you're female, sexually harass you at the same time. Two local to me were shut down for just that!

  • Thank you! I thought I was the only one who struggled with steering when learning to drive. I'd been a biker for a year or two before tackling cars. On my first lesson I drove down the main street of our local town; leant nicely into the left hand corner at the end and carried straight on almost into the local branch of Nat West. We had little score cards for each lesson; I got nil points for steering.

  • He's forgotten. Driving instructers teach noobs to steer in an unintuitive way, that no-one ever does. It's hard to explain. But it's like not crossing your hands. Fail, mr May.

  • Steering was the easiest part when I learned. I remember in my first lesson we were going to just go up and down a straight road but the instructor got me to go around a housing estate with various parked cars and traffic which was a bit scary. The hardest part is dealing with traffic and complex road layouts.

  • Never again will I go to my local hand car wash and give them 8 quid to not properly clean my car (miss spots) and leave the front bumper with localised scratches. On a basically still new, 1000 mile car. When confronted, I was told to never come back. I'll clean it myself and do a proper job of it!
