Yup - test centre down in Cowley. Was a mad day for it too - icy roads and a low sun so loads of glare!

And thanks!

And now you really learn how to drive!

Congratulations and don't do what I managed to do on my first solo drive, my foot missed the brake pedal and I drove through a junction on a red light with the clutch pedal down... Just as well it was late at night and it was a test run for the drive to work the next day so it was quiet. :-O

Heh sounds like me - my first solo drive, was steaming down the bypass, pulled into the overtaking lane...er, without looking in any mirrors . Narrowly missed another car by inches.

/golf claps self.

Congratulations though Cuc! Don't let us lot put you off :)

Well done!

I passed my theory test on monday, got to get the proper one booked now. I am a fucking shite driver. Well, it's not that I can't drive as such, it just scares me and I dislike it. People don't take driving anywhere near seriously enough

I felt much the same. Then I moved to London and haven't driven in about 12 years (other than the odd spin once a year or something in a mate's car). I now have to drive a car back from France in 3 weeks. Really looking forward to that one then....!

/Keeps telling self: It's just like riding a bike, I mean driving a car! :)

Seriously, I will be going out with the dad-in-law for a refresher, and I'm sure it will all be fine.
