Hi Karen,

welcome to the forum smile

good luck with the driving! i'm sure you'll be driving your husband everywhere once you have that independence to come and go as you please! 8-) he won't even get a look in i'd imagine! lol

good luck with your new instructor and the lessons!

Re: Newbie :)

Welcome Karen smile

Do you mind me asking, so that I can avoid making the same mistakes, what annoyed you about your last Instructor and caused you to change Instructors?  ;D

Re: Newbie :)

Hello, thanks for the lovely welcomes  big_smile

in response to g'day, the instructor was a flippin nitemare, he had only been an instructor since june, had no-one passed yet, on lessons he constantly spoke about his family, his kitchen (on one lesson we stopped and he drew me a diagram of his corner unit  yikes) oh and the final insult was when i said i wish i had learnt when i was 17 his reply was 'yeah i bet you were too busy chasing boys you hussy'  yikes yikes that was kinda the cherry if you like!

anyways got a new instructor tomorro, fingers crossed!

xx

Re: Newbie :)

Hi Karen

Good luck with your new ADI
Hopefully you will get on well and progress with your driving
I was very lucky with ADI's My first one was wonderful and very patient but unfortunatly he retired before my pass. My 2nd one was just as good.
Hope evrything goes well for you

P.S If my ADI had said that to me I think I would have slapped him  yikes

Re: Newbie :)

it definitely sounds as if you've made the best decision Karen in finding a new ADI!

good luck with your lessons smile i really hope you enjoy them! smile

remember, there's a lot of support on this place too and so much advice/helpful shoves along the way, you really can't go wrong!

i'm the same as Dee, luckily the guy i went with was really good. i do think that that made all of the difference to be honest; to have a good instructor that was really enthusiastic and engaging in the way he taught me. learning really was fun; and i think it's sad if it isn't the case really!

so, good luck! i hope you enjoy your lessons with your ADI.

let us know how you get on, if you wish to smile

xxxxxxxx
