Learning Car Driving......

As you must have guessed from title..yep, i am trying to learn how to drive a car without bumping it to others... ;) I have taken some 15 days course.. and yesterday for first time i drove my own car.. not alone..with my hubby sitting on my side.. When i used to drove that instructor's car, i used to think that i was doing good.. but yesterday's drive shook all my myths.. It is quite different to drive with a instructor who has full control in his hand..n giving u step by step instruction then when u r driving ur own car .. Till now whenever i used to make mistake my instructor himself used to correct it, even without my knowledge.. He used to guide me gear changes.. but when i was left to my own descretion, i found it little difficult to coordinate b/w gears and speed.. Yesterday after having filmy jump on speed breaker, i realized my mistake.. i thought gear is used to maintain the speed.. but just today morning i came to know its vice versa.. we dont change gears to change the speed but as we have changed the speed, for supporting it, we need to change the gear.. my instructor just told me that on speed breaker change it to second gear... but what was missing was.. if one is at 4th gear and good speed..first apply breaks.. n since it is a hard break, press clutch along( to prevent stoping of engine) .. then since ur speed came down to somewhere 20, u need to change the gear to 2nd..... I know these things come with practise only.. Anyways..till now it has been fun.. m trying to find funda behind each of my instructor's guidelines.. Trying to remember them..

Guys wish me luck.. i just wish that by next month i can drive at my own... both front side n reverse side :D

Hey wish you all the best in your endeavor..

A month back, i wanted to enroll myself in the so called Driving Schools, but seeing the traffic, and contemplating on my road crossing skills, dropped the idea... i think i ll wait for some more time, till im mentally prepared to be in the traffic on 4 wheels..


Work from home
