Calming Driving Nerves

For those of you who have been reading the blog for a good few years, you would know all about my struggle to pass my driving test. I have been taking driving lessons for almost 10 years on and off. I took my first driving test while I was pregnant with the kiddies and I failed that and just didn’t bother for about 5 years. Although, I took my driving theory test and passed it first time, I still had to to take it again last year because the last one had expired.

The Current Situation

I have recently started taking driving lessons again and I am currently enjoying them. I sacked the driving instructor I started with last year after 2 sessions. He was a screamer and he made me even more nervous so I got rid of him quickly. The new driving instructor I am using is a lot better. He is more patient and more thorough. I am learning many new driving skills at every lesson and I am happy with the way the lessons are currently going. The only issue I am still dealing with is my driving nerves.

Looking back, I have always been a nervous driver, and I became a lot worse after the accident we had a few years ago. I need to calm my driving nerves if I intend to pass my driving test. Being so nervous behind the wheel is not helping me at all, so I have starting looking at ways to help me deal with the nerves. Meditating and having some quiet time before I drive does help. Writing about it should help as well. I am hoping it does anyway, which is why you are reading this post.

Someone advised me to try some calming herbal medicine. I will be trying it in the next few days and will report back if it works. Driving my own car also outside of the lessons also help. I am usually a bit more relaxed when driving in my car with M.

My Dream Car

I am currently in the process of sorting out my driving license. I have been on this driving lesson fiasco for a very long time now, and I am looking forward to sorting it out for good.

I have had many driving lessons, passed my theory tesr, taken a practical driving test whilst heavily pregnant. Failed the test, and now I have to re-take my theory test (it is over 2 years), which means I have to start the whole process again. I am so sick and tired of the all process, I am eager to be done with it, so I can get my dream car.

Recently, I have been thinking a lot of what sort of car I would love to get for once I pass my test. Maybe it’s s because I recently came across this Cars of the 1980s Film and TV infographic by Vertu Lease Cars. I have been day dreaming of my dream car ever since.

There are many cars I would like to get, but 1 in particular has topped the list for years now, and that is a Mini Cooper. The car from The Simpsons, Homer’s Sedan, kind of reminds me of a good old Mini Cooper. I like my car to be efficient, compact but big enough, and stylish. A Mini Cooper ticks all these boxes and more. I think it is a super sleek car that would exceed all my expectations!

The Simpson’s family Sedan car in The Simpsons TV show reminds me of a Mini Cooper every time I see it. I guess the front of car is quite similar to that of a Mini Cooper, or maybe I have just watched too many episodes of The Simpsons. The show is so addictve, I used to be a huge fan of it back in the day.

What is your dream car? Are you driving it? Are you a fan of a Mini Cooper or Homer’s pink Sedan car? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below, let’s get talking.
