I've tried putting threads in a couple of other areas, with no takers, then I thought, the folk on GH are really sensible....
At the grand old age of 36, I'm learning to drive. most of my friends did this aged 17 and I'm struggling as part of the reason I haven't driven until now is anxiety about driving. now with two DSs I need to do it if we are to get around for holidays etc (although I'm committed for ecology reasons to using public transport as much as possible, holidays with two small children are becoming really hard)
I;ve been having lessons for about 6 months - about 25 2hour lessons in all.
I still feel quite nervous at junctions etc and had a really disastrous mock test on Friday - really knocked the confidence I had. I just can't imagine actually getting to a stage in a car with my boys and driving off when I can feel relaxed and confident about it
I trust other MN-ers and would really appreciate tips from other later-in-life learners.
desperate - need tips on learning to drive
