1 lesson down, and at least 3 more to go! Everyone’s still alive and in one piece, so I think I did great! I am doing private lessons with a local company until I get the basics down before driving a friend or family’s car. I got a rundown of the car’s mechanics, where everything is and the most important part, how to make it go and STOP!lol. The day’s lesson included: intersections (quiz: anyone know what a controlled stop is?), turns and emergency stops. I also learned how to adjust my mirrors (blind spots suck!) and tell when the car is using too many rpm’s and when it is on gas. I am happy that my instructor is a patient older gentlemen who has been working with student drivers for a long time. I am surprisingly optimistic and can’t wait until next time!
