At the ripe old age of 42 years and 3 months, I've had my first driving lessons! (Too lazy to bother learning when I was in London!) Some people say you need 1.5 driving lessons per year of your age, so I need 63 lessons??? Hell, I hope not! It's been going well so far. I have the advantage, being on Arran, of not having to worry about roundabouts or traffic lights (save the temporary ones for the odd roadworks), but I'll certainly get plenty of oppotunity to practice hill starts here! At the moment I'm just aiming to take my test on Arran, realising that I'd have to take another one if I wished to drive on the mainland, but even learning on Arran will improve my job prospects! Biggest problem, concentration is prone to wander slightly at times (Is that age related?) but my driving instructor seems reasonably impressed with my progress thus far. Any other 'late starters' out there? Please share your experiences!
