I naturally want to go as fast as a rocket, so he instructs me to push down in the accelerator in the thickness of a pound coin to get me to speed up in increments.

He should have said similar when he told me to brake and I did my first emergency stop, completely uninstructed. Seatbelts work, at least.

I was quite the opposite. My instructor was always telling me to drive quicker, always wanting me to be at near the limit on a 30 or 40 road. Personally, I was in no hurry. :)

Oh, I don’t ACTUALLY want to fast. Just my foot does

There's absolutely no reason to learn to drive except to get where you're going quicker.

When it comes to your test just keep in mind the words of the great Colin McRae: "if in doubt, go flat out".

Or, 'make sufficient progress' in driverspeak. That was one of the hardest things I had to learn, along with not being intimidated by tailgaters.

Noooo... see, I want to go different places. The places I go to already I’ll still go to in the same way.

Sure, but if you didn't need to get there very quickly you could just walk or get a horse or a bicycle or something.

Absolutely, but yes, imagine a toddler playgroup that's a half hour walk away that lasts from 9-11am.

You can set off at 8.30, get there for 9, turn around and be home for 9.30. You get 1 hour before you have to set off again at 10.30, get there for 11, turn around and be home for 11.30.

Of the last three hours, you've now spent two of them walking.

So I think there sometimes is a need to get there quickly, namely to save your sanity and return quality of life.

Exactly, so the quicker you go the greater the benefits in terms of quality of life and sanity. Pedal to the metal!

It's all very exciting these days. Just get in, say where you want to go, and sit back.

You need to tell us more than that! Details man. How many go faster stripes? Does it have a tree sir freshener? Are you allowed to legally drive it?

Astra SRi will have lowered sports suspension; tidy handler and plenty of poke. They last well too. :)

Ooh goody... 200 horses then?
Proverbial shit off a shovel, my Clio only had 172bhp and that absolutely flew. I love hot hatches, what a great concept.

Happens to the best of us, just cough to cover it on your next lesson.

Sounds like it went really well. Great stuff.

Fnarrr. I knew someone would make that joke. He says gas because giving instructions ‘accellerator’ is too long a word.

The instructor is a man, Cavey, which isn’t important except for he had gross hairy man feet.

Well, I can’t remember if o said or not, but Mo’s feet were just too disturbing so I never had a second lesson, but a week tomorrow I try again with Seema, who I hope will be wearing shoes.
