Was learning how to drive a difficult thing for you, & did you learn manual or automatic first.
For me I had a very difficult time learning how to steer, especially making left turns. What was your difficulties if any when you learned how to drive. Explain?
At first, of course, it was a little hard but after the first day of driving it was already fun for me. The first car that I have driven is a manual type.
I learnt on a manual car, it was a bit difficult in the beggining, i had always wanted to drive so every free minute i had i was in the car practicing. about 1 month of solid practice and i was good to go ... failed my first test, passed second time round.
parallel parking was the hardest one for me. and reversing while looking back ... i can reverse much better using the mirrors.
I first started driving when I was 10, a tractor of course. I would mow about 4 acres a week, but when I wasn't mowing I was cruising around the yard just playing. I even had a trailer to tow, so when it was time to drive a car, it was a piece of cake, whenI towed my first trailer it was very easy but I couldn't understand why until just about a year ago. Humans need about 10,000 hours of practice to become expert at anything, I figured I had just about that on my tractor alone,lol. I wrote a hub on it called, Teaching you kids defensive driving skills, I thought it could help parents with kids almost ready to drive, it really increases the chances of you child be a better driver.
