    Honestly my first drive alone wasn't scary at all. If anything it was less scary than having someone with me. The experience was weird when I first moved off because I have never moved off without having to wait for someone to be with me but after that it felt completely natural but there was a weird feeling behind it as I was in complete control

    Honestly think there should be so much more focus on what to do once you passed. Its a completely different ball game and diff driving experience when your driving on your own. Advise anyone have a 2 hour motorway lesson as well as ask for lesson on A roads and country lanes people belting it doing 60mph on a little dirt track can barely fit 1 car down is something i felt i was not prepared for no mirror signal manoeuvre can get you ready for that ha.

    Passed January first time and still find whole thing nervous driving – Rush hour lessons and night lessons would help I feel now as again just different style of driving than doing laps of a quite housing estate

    Good luck everyone 🙂

    Are you allowed to use your phone to record while driving if it’s in a suitable spot or does it have to be a camera?

    Getting used to your car is also a good thing to do first before going to busy areas. I drove to one of my family members houses down the road yesterday and the car felt weird to drive but that’s normal but I’m gonna practice somewhere quiet to get used to the pedals and steering. So I’d say if you’ve just passed your test and got your first car, go somewhere quiet and practice your control of the car. It can be parking, reversing, steering, anything

    I passed today with only 1 fault. Went for a drive with my dad and brother then a drive round on my own, I’m not used to the car yet so it feels weird

    I haven't driven for 3 years and I'm about to go back on the road! I was driving for a year after I passed in 2017 then had to stop driving due to life's little joys( I had a baby and couldn't afford a car for 3 years!) .Please can you do something on this? Im very nervous and worried x

    When I pass I’m gonna stick to quiet areas and gradually go into busier areas. It makes you know the area better without having to deal with challenging situations
