Well the second batch of double lessons are underway. Put basically I feel I need to get a fair few under my belt before I start taking tests.
So on Wednesday I did 60 mph roads, which went better than I thought and what did surprise me was that I wasn't scared, which I thought might be the case. However it meant having to quickly learn to adapt going back to 30 mph again, plus my instructor has pointed out that whenever I am nervous in places like, say a roundabout, I am anxious to get out of there a.s.a.p. so I need to watch my speed a little more.
But other things are improving. Gear changes are becoming natural and I am developing a sense of knowing what speed I am going at without any prompting or a quick split second glance at the speedometer. All part of the learning curve
