Re: help please

First of all ask your Gp their thoughts on it since as i am assuming they will have seen the injury? It's your right leg, so you need to be able to use your right foot to pivot from the gas pedal to the brake. Do you have a family car ( sat safely on the drive with you not even trying to move it!! Just seeing how the movement in your foot/leg goes! I would suggest someone sitting in to make sure you don't press or move anything you shouldn't do)  you could just sit in and see if its too painful to move your foot from left to right and vice versa and to push down on the pedals? That would give you an idea of how well you may or may not manage.

Is it likely to settle down a little more in the near future? If so waiting until that point may be a good idea if you find it difficult at the moment.

Re: help please

hi again
thanks for your replies. i hav made an appointment to see my physiotherapist n i will see him on friday the 13th, then i will let u no wat he said.
can i please ask another question, i dont no if i should go to a different thread, am sorry about that.
can someone tell me: if someone who has never done any driving before, can they learn in the crash course? is it as good as when someone is learning slowly.
can someone also give me a brief explanation as to how many days n how many hrs a day the lessons take.
am 29yrs of age n i want to try the crash course, i know it costs a lot of money but am very determined to learn it sooner. i want to be able to drive before i turn 30yrs old n very determined to pass my driving before christmas.
i now its very ambitious but i want to give it a try.
thanks very much

Re: help please

Many people will learn better over a longer period of time but some are quite capable of learning intensively (I prefer the term intensive rather than crash when it comes to driving  big_smile)

If Christmas is your deadline, then talk to some local instructors and see what they can offer.  Also talk to some instructors that offer intensive courses.  Intensives can be anything from 40 hours in one week down to 4 or 5 hours in a week - it really depends on how you want to do it and what you think suits you best.

Where are you based?

Re: help please

Depends where in South Yorkshire.

There is a chap Dave Hartley (Dash Driving http://www.dashdriving.com/) who is based in Beverley.

You could also check out the Instructor directory on this site http://www.drivertrainingtoday.co.uk/south_yorkshire/

Although I am based in Swindon, my wife has family in Pocklington and we often visit.  I would be happy to add in an extra visit.  I will send you a pm.
