Horrible experience.

I had just got my permit and was driving home. I grew up on a farm so I was used to driving tractors and such but this was the first time I had ever driven a car. I was so nervous and my mom (not a good teacher by the way) was yelling in my ear and pointing out everything I was doing wrong. I was managing until I got into my driveway which was the first sharp turn I had to make. Needless to say, I missed the driveway completely. I took the turn to fast and ended up it the front yard narrowly missing a gas line. I stopped the car and my mom got out. My brother was getting out of the backseat and I was getting out of the driver seat. I forgot to put the car in park before I got out so as we were halfway out when car started going forward. My brother had one leg in the car and one leg hanging out and the car was headed towards the house. Luckily I managed to get back in and stop the car before anything terrible happened. I didn't drive another vehicle for a year after that.

Well first was when I was 15.. I didn't even practice in the parking lot, my instructor told me to go directly and drive him around the city, I was like wth... But I guess I learn faster when I'm pressured.

I first drove when I was 15, it was pretty thrilling. I love going fast. I was a bad turner though.

My first driving experience was when I was 15. My dad took me to a parking lot, and I did OK, so he let me drive on the road. Nothing exciting lol.

One point when I was seven years old my father had me sit on his lap and drive (steering wheel only) a 1971 Chevy C10 to the neighborhood park, i'm pointing out the model because, if anyone knows, you've got to move a steering wheel on something like that much more than you do now to get the same response. I ended up driving somewhat off on the grass along the road most of the way there because it didnt make much sense at the time.

Shortly thereafter I had to do the same thing on a Honda magna 750c (just the handlebars) suffice it to say I forced more than a few stalls for my mistakes.


When I was thirteen my dad had me learn to ride a older 250cc dirt bike by myself, once I understood how to use the clutch well enough to get into first gear the result was evident, I hadn't actually expected to ever get going so I ended up "rocketing" off diagonally across the street grazing the neighbors car with the rubber on the right hand grip. One of the most exhilarating bits of my life until i stalled the bike at a stop sign.

First time I drove a manual car I was being taught by my uncle in his jeep, I knew how to use the clutch by then, relatively, and the only problem I had then was putting the shifter into 3rd instead of first and then later on down the road, literally, stopping because I wasnt used to pedals yet.

The first time I drove a friends mustang home I did the same 3rd instead of 1st thing because of how the shifter is angled in that car. That was a pain and I was only driving because I was deemed the least drunk at the time. I was 18 and hadn't brought my wallet and wasn't on the insurance of course. You've got to love when the cops doesn't seem to be around huh?

I failed the driving test the first time. The dude just gave off this super oppressive aura, so I was too nervous to pay attention to what I was doing.

my first driving experience would probably also be my last day on earth, joking ....I don't think I'm that clumsy
I never drove before, I'm reluctant to do so because it's so dangerous. I bet your thinking, so is crossing the street
Yea, but I feel that operating such a large vehicle has it's ways of increasing the risk of danger

lol My bro did the same thing with my grandma's car only he took it on a nice trip through traffic into a ditch while my mom was inside the house getting something. I first got behind the wheel when I was 7 because my bro( different bro) let me get behind the wheel in a parking lot while he hit the gas. (my legs were to small to reach) I ended up running over the edge of an island once but besides that, I did kind of good for a 7 year old.
