Driving – How’s it going?

It’s been almost four weeks since I passed my driving test and all seems to be going great. So far I have put over 1750 miles on the clock, 800 of which I had done before I passed.

I’ve experienced the long motorway trips several times now, which I do not like! As I have such a small car, I constantly find myself being blown from one side of the lane to the other, so now when I go on the motorway I tend to piss people off and stay between 55 and 60 mph. At this speed, the car is much more manageable.

Going to my mums in Kent was alright. We stopped half way on the M25, junction 8, which took us into Reigate. Lovely place. We stopped for about an hour and had what was essentially lunch at 9am as we were all up at 5am and didn’t have any breakfast before we left.

At present I put £25 worth of petrol in per week. The good thing is, I’m getting almost 200 miles of city driving out of that and I’m still left with some for the following week. I have calculated that even if prices go up to as much as 160p per litre, we should get be able to do the exact same mileage with only an increase of £5 per week.

I have noticed that I tend to have a heavy foot while driving and dump the clutch a lot when changing gear. I am told that this is not good for the car, so over the past week, I have took it upon myself and have been learning how to drive with a much lighter touch and have a much lower rpm. Although this is the way I learnt how to drive to pass my test, I find it very different in my own car, so a change is definitely needed to keep the car in tip top condition.

Practical Driving Test

I booked my practical driving test now that I have successfully passed my theory. I have added a counter in the sidebar on the right of my blog.

When I pass my driving test, it will change my life so much. We will be able to go to so many places that we had thought were just too expensive or where the public transport is quite bad.

Having my licence means I will be able to see my family more often. Rather than every 3 months I will be able to see them perhaps every month or even less! It’s all so exciting, I can’t wait!

I passed my driving theory test!

Since August last year I have been using the Theory Test Pro website to study for my driving theory test. I took quite a few tests between then and now and I passed each and every one of them as you can see below, which is just awesome!

Road safety really is all about common sense!

I am really happy with the results I was getting!

On the 24th April, I finally got to officially prove that I can pass the test. I passed and I am now one step closer to driving my car that I won from JVC!

I was really happy that I passed my theory driving test!

All I need to do now is get some more driving lessons and pass my practical and I can drive my car by myself!
