    Passed drivers still stall hon its all about getting used to the car, when i first got my car after passing i kept stalling as i wasnt used to the clutch that was embarassing...'


    Enjoy those six mths i miss my lessons loads as they were well fun. 6 mths sounds good, I had quite a few lessons start studying for theory now as its so useful for on the road!!

    Your lucky you enjoyed yours, I didn't! I used to get so nervous and be relieved after every lesson because it was a whole week until the next one :oops:

    Oh no thats no good... Driving can be scary at times :hug: I hope you're not too nervous driving now, driving can be so enjoyable except for the few pricks on the road...!

    No way! I think you have underestimated yourself! When I was learning I started on my 17th bday in July and passed my test in November.

    Well done! I've been driving for nearly 3 years and stall all the time..and hit the kerb..and sometimes reverse into stuff :oops: :lol: 6 months is a decent time to pass, if you are consistant with your lessons and stuff. My advice is get your theory out of the way, then you can concentrate on preparing for your practical.
