The part I hate the most about leaning to drive again is that I am not with everybody else time table. Even though I got my driving license I am still practicing with how to park straight and stuff. Everyone I know is short with me because I am over third and not a teen. They all think I am crazy because I still want to drive around empty parking lots for extra practice. They seem more mad at me because I decide now to learn to drive and not when I was a teen like them.
I bought my first truck myself. I already knew how to drive (father bought me my first car), but it was a stick shift-so I didn't know how to drive it.
My mom attempted to help me, but it ended with tears and her yelling at me. So I had to learn myself, thank god I already knew how to drive.
For some reason the engine noise was really distracting (you know what I'm talking about, like how the engine revs up and gets high pitched when you need to upshift). So, I put in a Dead Kennedys tape, cranked it up, and drove on rural roads until I got it down.
Don't be afraid to practice alone, practice is the key. The more you do it, less scary it will be. :thumbup:
