Well got my first actual driving lesson 2morrow, coz I'm 18 in 2months, an I'm going for manual license, Only drivin manual a few times aswell...

What i'm actually nervous about, I'm not the best driving in the dark at times,

My first lesson is at 6pm Friday... So dark, Peak hour, Manual, Little shitbox car (never driven anything slower than a VT 6 lol )

I'm actually nervous about driving, Never thought it'd happen....

Cheers
MaT

Best of luck man... Knowing you, you'll breeze through it.

In my first driving lesson my driving instructor got lost as it was in the hills...my area not his...
Ended up driving the entire way down and up Gorge Road because we couldnt find a sign that said "Gumeracha" and missed the place to turn off.
Gorge road is this really curvey road through the hills in Adelaide... Wasnt great considering it was the first time I had ever actually driven on the road...
It was good though, plus the learner car was a new brand new red 2004 WRX with gold wheels, so that was a bonus...I ended up being the first person to crash the car as well on my 7th lesson, last lesson before my final test.

take it easy, relax. do everything in your own time, the instructor won't break your balls for not getting there quickly.

P-platers are famous for getting overconfident too quickly so there's plenty of time to get ****y about your driving. a bit of nervousness is OK.

If it's your first time you won't be doing much clutch or accelerator work. The instructor will, in fact all you'll do is gently steer the car in a very controlled environment..

Your better off learning to roughly drive a manual, even if you bunny hop, roll down hills and then fine tune your skills with the instructor..

Let him nit pick the little things..
