Well admittedly I was a bit nervous this morning before I embarked on my first driving lesson. I got up slightly earlier than usual and felt like one of my favourite fictional heroes in this scene (although I can see better than Harry Palmer, sans glasses, and I am not interested in horse racing)*
So 9am I am all ready and my instructor takes me to a small suburban area of Letchworth where I can drive safely around some streets without causing any harm and mayhem.
Now the good news is that apparently I am good with the steering wheel and keeping to the road and manovering the car (i.e. I don't shoot out of streets and parking areas), although I do have problems coordinating the clutch and and accelerator. That said, for a first timer behind a wheel I seem to have done rather well.
So heres to the next few lessons and some prepping up on the theory.
*Feeble I know, but have been itching for an excuse to put in a scene from this film
