This a personal story for me, I am not even sure I am going to post this yet. But I guess if you are reading this then you know that I posted it.
On my 17th or 18th Birthday I got given Driving Lessons and I was really nervous, I wasn’t a fan of my instructor and if I’m honest I was not sure that I wanted to learn to drive just yet.
So I tried another instructor, in fact I went through numerous instructors over time due to their quality or how I felt about them.
All this chopping and changing was stressing me out and I lost confidence so I decided to press stop on driving and concentrate on university.
So I went through three years of university without driving and after graduation I decided to take it up again.
I decided to start a new with a new and improved driving instructor and I was (still am) happy.
I have been learning with my teacher for a long time now and he thought I was ready for my test.
Experience of the driving test (s)
There is a hint in the title there.
So in my FIRST test it all went well, I was confident and ready for it- I failed because I made a mistake on the manoeuvre.
Working with instructor I practised them more until I became confident, I then booked ANOTHER TEST. And I failed,I failed because during the manoeuvre I had a really bad panic attach with a nose bleed so that was horrific.
It took me a few months to get over it and more recently I had MY THIRD test as I was really ready for it, no nerves no nothing. Until I stalled, which set of a panic attack and my legs started to shake and I had no control over my legs. Of course due to that I failed.
When I got home from that test I booked another one straight away, this test is a few months away yet and it will be the new test so it will be interesting to see how that goes.
I just need to find a way to calm down, if you have panic attacks or panic when driving do let me know how you overcome this.
