Never a good sign. I was lucky as my dad & uncle used to teach my sister & I to drive. My actual instructor thought my dad was mad to go in a car with having control over the vehicle

I used to go out with my aunt as well nikki and she said i was fine. at night i would drive around the neighbourhood by myself. the last time i went out my dad told me to drive straight ahead at a junction as i was doing this he changed his mind and said go left and caught the wheel and pulled it to a sharp left i literally nearly had a heart attack and accelerated instead of braking and that was the end for me

My most scariest experience was when I was doing my driver training for the ambulance service, we had the scariest instructor who if you argued back at he would fail you. We were at an advantage as we knew this already & kept our mouths shut for the 3 weeks

Oh my, how did you cope??? Were you checking your phone every 15 seconds...?!!!

I was very good - I made her call me once she was on her way to school, so I knew she'd locked up okay and was going to make it to school on time. I'm sure she was probably thinking "god mum whats the big deal" lol .
