My last driving lesson this past Tuesday was a little more interesting than usual. For a start it was a little later than I thought. For some reason I was under the impression it was at one but it was at half one. Then it turned out Martin, my instructor, parked the car facing the wrong way. So I would have to pull out in to traffic and past an ambulance to boot. It actually wasn't that bad, and it wouldn't even be the first time that I drove across the road that lesson.
We headed out to our usual place, but we did something new this time. Martin decided it was time that I learn my first maneuver. He rescheduled my lesson because he didn't want me driving in the dark but yeah, let's do maneuvers. The maneuver in question was the three-point turn. Martin said that it's now been re-christened turning the road. At least I think that's what he said. It was either that or "turn in the road". Both of which would kinda make sense. If you don't know a three-point turn is basically when you turn right across the middle of the road, reverse to the left, and then turn to the right again to drive down the opposite side of the road that you were on before.
For my next lesson we'll be doing a little more work on clutch control and making the car move at walking speed, which should help a lot with maneuvers.That's scheduled for Tuesday. Wednesday is when the new Pokemon game comes out, and Friday is when I get a new laptop and I have a doctors appointment.
Man I'm gonna have a busy week.
