20 Things You Feel When Learning To Drive

20 Things You Feel When Learning To Drive

Learning to drive is a harrowing experience. And anyone who tells you differently is an idiot or a liar. A manual car can be your best friend or worst enemy. And learning to work one can be a tiring experience where family relationships are tested. Nobody likes to sit with their dad in the passenger seat after they’ve stalled for the 14th time. Here is a little round up of 20 mutual feels we have when we get behind the wheel …

  1. This is so fucking stupid and you will simply walk everywhere forever more.
  2. Why are gears even a thing?
  3. It is impossible to take your foot off the clutch and press the accelerator at the same is simply just impossible. *stalls 10 times*
  4. The thought of going above 10 mph gives you the fear of death.
  5. You go go on the main road for the first time, feeling like you’re speeding along at a tidy 30 mph.
  6.  You are completely unable to get the hang of indicating as you have far too many things to do at once, indicating is the bottom of that important list.
  7. When you listen to people who have already passed being all bossy kind of makes you want to hit them.
  8. You feel proper badass when you go into fifth gear for the first time despite the fact you are travelling at 45 mph.
  9. You are simply terrified of every other car, animal, stick on the road.
  10. You have your first lesson and find small talk with your instructor incredibly awkward.
  11. Your first overtake still gives you nightmares.
  12. You are more scared for your theory than all your exams put together.
  13. You think all the clips in the hazard perception look suspiciously like SimTown?
  14. You still don’t know any of the road signs.
  15. Feeling more proud of your theory result than your school results and you STILL wap it out in conversations.
  16. The weeks before your practical test were the most intense of your life.
  17. You start to stall every time you turn your car on in the days leading up to your test. OH MY GOD why are you so stupid, why can’t you drive like every other normal person ???
  18. The actual test was a harrowing experience you never want to repeat. You reckon it was probably worse than child birth.
  19. And are driving examiners the worst people in the world? Probably. Definitely the meanest and rudest.
  20. But you passed. Kudos to you. Nobody can hold you back as you hit the open road. You start your car, ready to pull off annnnnd then you stall. Ffs.
