I've been learning to drive for on & off 2 years. It's was a huge step for me as I was terrified in the beginning & left it quite late in life to start (at 42!)
Anyway I've failed 4 tests. My first instructor I failed 2 tests with & just figured I couldn't really learn anything more from them & felt that they too were frustrated with me. I found another instructor who I get on with & had a different teaching approach. Again I've failed two tests with, again they are frustrated but only because they say I'm a good driver, one of their best & don't understand how I could be failing!
Anyway, I use to get a lot of practice in our own car with DH, up until a couple of months ago, until he started to really put me off, picking on everything. It got to the point where I couldn't drive with him. So it's been nearly 2 months since my last test & since I last drove. I've booked another test in about 4 weeks - it'll be the new test. I've booked another lesson too. But I'm really nervous about getting behind the wheel again.
My theory runs out in Jan, so if I fail again I'll have to re-take that! I just don't know if I can put myself through it all again! I guess it boils down to how much I want my licence. Yes I want it, I'm only doing it for my kids, but it's so expensive & I need a confidence boost! Do I keep at it or just accept defeat?
