Hiya,

On the first lesson (my Dad is a trainee driving instructor) you normally learn controls and moving off and stopping, and changing gears. So, that's what you normaly learn on the first lesson! ;D

Anyway, good luck and most of all enjoy it! I'm learning to drive myself (I'm not being taught by my Dad - LOL).

I hope that helps!

I'm also with a private driving instructor which is ideal for me! ;D It costs £20 but as he is good it is well worth it! ;D

no, he's a private fella.. Driving Force.. hubby was with BSM (£23.25 an hour), with the same instructor until he left, and Mike went with him

Good luck with both dads Claire/Clare - you get me confused! LOL ;)

Oh good luck with the lessons. I'm sure you'll do a lot better with yours than I did with mine. I had 35 hours of tuition in a manual car and still couldn't get the basics. I eventually cut my losses and changed to an automatic. I was doing really well until I ran out of money and couldn't afford any more lessons. If I'd started in an automatic I would have been driving by now. Instead its Shanksies Pony for me ;D
