  1. Thanks for your replies everyone, I actually passed my test in 1988, but never drove for various reasons. Having recently taken early retirement from teaching (yay!!!)

I'm very nervous! I wondered if anyone had any tips on manoeuvring? My road is on a slight incline and parking is very tight, parallel parking. In effect when I'm in reverse to park I have to reverse uphill and the car doesn't do this easily I end up pressing the accelerator and not moving so I press it a bit more and I shoot back which is obviously no
  6. Hi I am relearning to drive after passing my test in 1988 and not driving since! So I have bought a second hand Toyota Aygo automatic and my instructor is giving me lessons in it. I'm very very nervous but have had three lessons and am beginning to relax a bit into it, looking forward to getting tips on driving my car through this forum
