Don't think I'm destined to drive.

Ok, i've been taking driving lessons on and off for 5 1/2 years now. Just because of the fact that I kept running out of £££. However October 2008, my theory was due to expire so I knew that I had to do it. Took the test 4 weeks before it expired. Even though I failed, I felt I did really well and wasn't as bad as I had imagined. I got 7 minors and 2 majors, both for the same thing - moving into lane position too early. That's what I failed for. If I just waited a few seconds, I probably would have passed.

 

Anyway, managed to get a cancellation on the day before my theory test ran out but was in an area that I didn't know. As it is so stressful the night before, I decided to take a diazepam the night before to help me sleep. However, this was not helpful at all. My co-ordination was all over the place and I didn't have a clue half the time. It was terrible and that was me in a state all day. It was awful. I got 24 minors and 7 majors. You would think I was drink driving. I know and hope it is because I took the diazepam, different area etc. Another thing is though, that even before I started my lessons, I have always had crazy dreams now and then that I am driving and end up crashing or that I am driving crazily all over the place. I actually did nearly crash one time with my instructor. That was after my first test so what if I did pass and was out on my own. I would be dead if that happened. Are these signs that I am just not destined to drive? I am determined to do it and have another theory test booked but a bit concerned about this as it seems like some sort of omens.

I don't think its a sign at all. I've had tons of dreams of dying in a car accidents. It may happen in the future, but it hasn't happened yet.

Basically my point is that I think you should continue trying. If at first you don't succeed try, try again.

I find driving one of the easiest things to do ever! I drive to relax. I know people who have trouble with driving, but I'll never understand it. Is it fear that makes you this way, or do you have trouble with coordination or what? I have a niece that doesn't drive and have asked her this same question. All I get in response is, "I don't know. I just can't do it." It must be very frustrating for you. Just keep trying, I'm sure you will pass eventually and then you can relax.

glasgow is one of the hardest places to take your test in, you could try taking it somewhere else you might know like ayrshire or dumbarton. these places will be a lot quieter and less stressful to drive in.

i took my test in glasgow last may and failed in the last 2 mins of the test so i know how crap it feels. gonna have to start the lessons again i think.

No, I can do it and when I do I feel great but don't like driving over say 50mph. Absolutely hate it. I feel most comfortable at 40mph. Do you think it is just a 'getting used to' thing. When I am driving fast, I just think I I'm going to crash n yeah my coordination is a lot less when driving fast but that's normal. I just don't know. I have always wanted to drive so that it is easier to go down to my Mums. Don't mind normal roads but that would involve motorway driving where my coordination aint v.good.
