Finding it difficult

I want to start driving lessons again but i seem to be putting it off,i have lost my confidence i keep thinking of all excuses as to why i am not having lessons anymore eg;mad people on the roads,but secretly i am missing having lessons i have found one close to where i live but can;t seem to pluck up the courage to phone up,i don't know what is wrong with me i was so confident on my 19th lesson after Christmas,but i realised my instructor was an ass so i sacked him and now i am looking at all you people on here envying you and wishing it was me on my lessons again  :cry:

Re: Finding it difficult

We not all asses, go ahead and ring this new instructor. This person may make you feel good about your driving and install some confidence in yourself. Give him/her a call, you never no.

The very best of luck to you.

Re: Finding it difficult

just take the plunge and pick up that phone , honestly i could kick myself now for waiting so long , i did this had every excuse in the book why i didn't want to get a adi and just carried on plodding along in my own car but in my own car i wasn't attually getting anywhere as to pass the test IMO you need proper tuition , you really need to take that initial step , for me that was the hard bit over when i booked that first lesson i knew from then on thing's were moving forward

Re: Finding it difficult

You really need to get back out there!! I think you will find it so much more easier because you have had some experience already, think back to when you were a new driver and how much more scarier that was?!  Plus there are lots of instructors out there that will be able to help build your confidence again, if you explain to them that you weren't at all happy the way you have previously been taught,they'll understand!  You will most probably be shocked at how much you do already know and you just need to have some reassurance that you can do it and you'll be fine!!  Pick up that phone and have another shot, once you get back in, u'll love it!

Re: Finding it difficult

Miss Daisy get yourself back in gear!  It's so much easier putting these things off but once you have your first lesson again it will all come back to you and you'll be super confident again like you were in your last lesson.  It will only get worse if you keep putting it off and i am looking forward to the day when you post on here telling us when your test is, especially as i remember some of your earlier posts and how nervous you were driving, just like me!

One of my biggest regrets was the fact that i've been learning on and off for almost four years and have now got to the point where i just want to pass because i've spent so long working at it, when i wish i'd just stuck at it in the first place.

Let us know how you get on.

Re: Finding it difficult

Don't let a bad experience with on instructor put you off. I did exactly the same - stopped with one instructor and took 15 months to find a new one, and am now thinking if only I'd carried on I could be driving by now.
My old instructor REALLY knocked my confidence, but my new instructor has been really patient and made me really determined to get my licence.
Now I want to pass my test for me, but also for her as she has been so great. A good instructor really does make all the difference - so make the call.

Re: Finding it difficult

Its so much nicer to put it off, but get back out there when you can, then you can share all your stories with us!  I hope the time is soon, for when you feel up to making that call, it might not feel like it now, but it will be worth it in the end.  Thats what i keep telling myself!
