So where do I start with 这个 whole driving thing? So when I was 17, I was never really interested in driving. When everyone was booking their first driving 课s, all I wanted was a camera for my birthday. I had absolutely no desire to drive, it was kinda forced onto us, that it is something I needed to do. Nonetheless, I got my provisional license, as a form of I.D mainly for going out, lol. It wasn't until I was 18 in the summer of 2009, that I finally passed my first 理论测验 with ease. I had the intention of doing 课s, but I still didn't really care to do them. I mean, I lived in London where public transport is easy, all my friends drove, and would take me where I needed to go, so where was the rush?
当我匆忙来临时 realized that I only had 2 years to pass my test due to my 理论测验 running out! So on the 1st of June 2010, at the age of 19, and after finishing my first year of uni, I booked my 课s with an independent 在我的大学做广告的讲师。他是 cheaper than schools, had a good record and was a high level 讲师 so I knew he what he was doing. In a nutshell, I was with him for about a year. I wasn't learning anything really, he wouldn't monitor my driving, even when I asked him to and there was no structure to the 课s. I never did extra learning as in watch videos and books, thinking going driving every week was enough. In general, his way of teaching was pretty shitty and he was a little rude. So eventually, I said bye to my crap,first driving 讲师 and embarked on a new 讲师.
这次，我聘请了一位女教练，因为我的最后一位教练真的很不礼貌，所以我认为与一位女性同伴会不那么令人生畏。现在我和她一起学到了一些东西，但是我没有和她一起点击，她有点自尊。老实说，当我和她在一起时，我讨厌开车。因为我没有通过她的教学风格来获得信任，这打击了我的信心。这时候，我 realized 我的理论考试快要用完了，我不得不再做一次 在2011年。我轻松过关，但对浪费金钱感到沮丧。在和我的姐姐一起上一次练习课之后，我终于离开了这位驾驶教练。我们只说 lesson was awful, my older 姐姐迅速告诉我的驾驶教练要去哪里，而我 instructor 告诉她我学得慢，不认为我在做 进展。生气了 我姐姐离开时，就像她教我的时候，我学得很快，而且我总体上是个快速学习者。这位老师只是在拿我的钱，知道她的教学风格并没有跟着我。由于我讨厌开车，所以我无法像以前那样带自己去做作业 read or watch videos, I just 想克服它并完成它。
By 2012, I took a break and finally decided to go with a school, AA. My new 讲师 was miles better, I was making progress and finally went on a test. I knew I wasn't 读y, but I felt more confident and for the first time ever, I wanted to drive and was making an effort to pass by doing extra work. On my first test I failed, with like 13 minors and 2 serious, for observation. I took another test the same year, and then took a year break to focus on my final year of University.
现在，2013年7月4日， 我有3名未成年人和2名严重观察者未通过第三次考试。 我永远不会忘记考官对我说的话 “杰西卡，你是一个强大的驱动力，如果你没有犯那些愚蠢的错误，那会过去的。” 带着高昂的情绪，压力和不断减少的银行存款余额，我对自己很着迷。一回到家，我就撕裂了。.我看到红色，把东西扔在家里，尖叫，哭泣，我很生气。我以前从未如此生气过，而且我是一个冷酷的人。现在，在您认为我反应过度之前，我将告诉您为什么我要这样行事。一年的时间专注于我的学位后，我才再次开车，大学后很难找到工作，因为我有很多 经验，我不得不做我的 theory test 再次。 总的来说，我感到压力和挫败， emotionally drained by 一切。这种失败加剧了我的压力，我想爬进一个球。
Nonetheless, the hunger to pass was greater than ever. I took my 理论测验 and passed for the third time. Then took another year break and stated driving again at the end of 2014 with a new 讲师, with LDC. My goodness, my driving had improved with 这个 new 讲师, there was structure and I was making progress. Now my mindset had changed, I was a driver! I 只是 had to show the driving examiners 这个. I started watching videos, and 读ing ever now and again. I would think about driving, breathe driving, and believe I would pass on my fourth time. So I booked my test for the end of 2015年5月.Unfortunately, I had to move 讲师s as my 讲师 was going on a course. Frustrating 那样的话，这给了我时间 推迟我的考试，到六月。即使我有信心，但仍有一些我想努力的领域。因此，我观看了视频，视频和视频，并做了一些私人练习。
My final 讲师 came from BSM and it was my 讲师 Hadley, who pushed me hard. He was a perfectionist yes, but the standard of driving he taught was great! I booked my test on 6月15日以最贴切的方式过去。 正如我在2014年反思文章中所说的 我相信自己，我对道路更加了解。经过近5年的学习驾驶经验，现在是时候获得我的驾照了。我不会听到“对不起，您失败了”这句话。这次不存在失败。没错，我第四次与9名未成年人通过考试。这是一个很好的动力，我以为我在某一节中失败了，但总的来说，我感到平静。一些有关 this 时间不一样，我看不到自己失败了。我可以高兴地说我有我的执照 and everything 只是 clicks :)
The reason I wrote 这个 post, was because I wanted to be a source of inspiration for people 谁在开车苦苦挣扎。驾驶不仅与您学习新技能的能力有关，还与您的心态有关。如果您想开车，如果您相信自己可以做到，那么您会的。我的心态很明确，直到我会通过。我相信我是一名车手，我专心，很积极，我做到了，你也可以做到。
