i'm just so anxious about it. Getting back behind the wheel of a car after 30 years.
I passed my test at 21. I never enjoyed learning or driving but knew that, with a baby coming, i would want to get out and about. I bought a car and drove for a short while...hating it...if i went anywhere i would worry about the journey home. I even had a small accident, hit a stationary car whilst pulling out (no one in car..no one hurt but a dent in someone else's car)
Then i moved to the suburbs of a big city. We could only afford 1 car and my OH (now ex) wanted it...fine by me....the transport links were good and i just never bothered again.
Fast forward 30 years, one divorce and re-marriage later and my husband who is 12 years older than me has some health problems and he/we worry that he may have to give up driving....which to put it plainly, will put me back in the driving seat or how will we travel to hospital appointments, to visit family and friends.
So we have decided i should take some refresher lessons but honestly i feel sick to the stomach. I know know know I've got to do it. But how do i go about finding an instructor who will be patient with me.
Would i better to drive in an automatic, would that make it easier for me? Its all the small things really..not the driving per se...but parking in small spaces, entering and leaving main roads...right across a busy section. all those little things.
Can anyone give me some advice?
