My daughter's 4 hr driving lesson began with the instructor taking her straight on the motorway. He then said if you want to drive with one hand...we'll start now.

Concept of 'reverse' has not yet been discussed. That's next week's fun.

The iphone probably had an app to help her concentration.

I think there is a lot to be said for countries like Spain who will only allow people to learn to drive with a registered driving school, they don't have the concept of a provisional license, and as a few UK people have learned to their cost, the provisional license is illegal there.

It won't be so bad. Get her burning round the car park and then by the time you're ready to get her on the road she'll have the confidence that she can handle the car.

Is it a manual or automatic? Part of me wishes I had a manual so I can teach my son how to drive one when the time comes, but unfortunately having children and a need to haul gear rarely means you are able to by a cool car

There's nowhere near enough pissed-offness in here today, people. Come on - shape up!!!

Muggins sold his Union-Jack bedecked manual Mini Cooper to buy her a Lime Green, automatic Fiesta.

Ahh hellooo, so you're here too?
I wouldn't "leave the reservation", you should know that by now.

I'm sure that willmore will be around to make the circle complete, before too long. She can't stay away, either.

Was it that dark blue metallic colour? I wanted one of those but then I became a keyboardist for a band and that idea went flying out the window
