driving me crazy

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:06 am by rachel

Something happens to me when I get into a car. Whether as a passenger, or in control of the wheel, I lose all confidence in myself. Stick someone beside me with a green sheet of paper, and everything I’ve learnt just goes out of my head.

I can drive pretty well, I think. My progress chart has gone from 2s (with prompting) to 4s (test standard). I know where the reference points are for my manoeuvres, and they pretty much go according to plan these days. Undue hesitancy is what kills me though. Try as I might, I can’t relax, drive at the speed limit, make that quick right turn if there is a car on the horizon.. It’s not good.

I’m going to have to sort it out though. Driving test in two weeks. So much time, money, effort has gone into this. It’s pretty much the only thing I have to show for moving to Glasgow, getting to this standard. I really want to pass it, because I know that with practice, I’ll be fine and I’ll get better and start to relax more. The test seems like such a massive hurdle. Everyone whizzing past my window (I hope) has done it though, so I should get over it.

Easier said than done.
