Sigh. I gotta retake my theory test again.
I scored 38 out of 50.. or was it 75? - anyway pass mark was 43.. so I gotta hope I spot the hazards in the Hazard Perception Test.

In my practical... practise with my tutor.
I have to now think about the following mostly:

Mirrors while stationery. (traffic lights.. stopped) - They call it "Keeping yourself informed"

Signalling well on roundabouts.. (going from 1 land roundabouts to 4 lanes.. is quite tricky concept at first - especially with more than 4 exits)

Judging speed from junctions. You can say the two second rule when your behind a car.. but it doesn't work when your looking at a oncoming car from a T-junction. I need to improve because I'm hesitant about car's speed on both T-junctions and roundabouts and its always been an issue for the last 2 weeks of lessons.

Never been to a driving school...here in the Phils., I was home schooled. My dad taught be how to drive a manual when I was 14. Then, practiced parallel, diagonal, and car park reverse parking. After a while, he got me a more advance lesson in maintaining a cars' position on a traffic light while being uphill without using hand brakes, just the proper mixture of gas and clutch control.

When I was 14 I practiced in the roads inside our village.., when I was 16 I got a student drivers license which allowed me to drive in the street but with the supervision of someone with a valid drivers license of course. by 18, I got a real drivers license so that I no longer need to drive with a person with a valid drivers license.

I thought you were talking about a performance driving school. I have attended some BMW CCA events and they are FUN. You learn a lot about driving technique, apexing, braking and such. If you are into cars I would suggest checking a local CCA event out.
