Re: Driving In The Dark

Hi Lianne, It is a lot different learning to drive in the dark, you have to be really observant, keep your witts about you. Remember that not everyone will dress to be seen in the dark, they forget that you as a driver could easily miss them if they are all in black and there isn't a lot of street lights about.
I'm sure your ADI will help you lots with your manouvers, and he/she won't take you where it's pitch black so don't worry to much hun.
Just listen to what you are being told and you'll be fine.
Best of luck.

Re: Driving In The Dark

Good advice from Giz, also remember it is a lot harder to determine the speed of approaching vehicles when it is dark and that the effect of water on the windscreen amplifies the effects of brake lights from cars in front.

Whilst you may find it a bit worrying, use it as a good learning curve, much better to learn how to deal with it when you have a qualified instructor next to you, then having to attempt it on your own after you pass your test.

Good luck Ev

Re: Driving In The Dark

Good luck with your night lesson, you'll be fine as you have your instructor there to help you cope. I also find it really relaxing driving in the dark: then again i'm just weird lol

Re: Driving In The Dark

I had 2 lessons in dark and enjoyed them its not as busy on roads at night though keep alert and drive as you would in day. Hardest bit for me was seeing where road led to but get used to it and its enjoyable.

Re: Driving In The Dark

I had my first evening lesson last week - on my instructors advice my lesson started just before dusk and ended in th pitch black, so that I could  get used to it as it gradually got darker. This was really helpful and I actually found it quite relaxing driving in the dark, as for some weird reason I felt calmer. I would get the "dark" lessons out the way whilst you have the support of your driving instructor - its not as bad as you think.

Re: Driving In The Dark

I lie driving in dark as much as in light tho can take a bit of getting used to. It is harder to see things like where road goes but ajust your speed to suit the conditions and keep alert. I had 2 lessons in dark in summer 1st I asked for so only had an hour then had to change ADI and new one wanted to do lesson in dark so had 2 hour one enjoyed both. Now since passing I've driven in dark loads.
