Driving!

I have been learning to drive since September last year…and yes I’m still learning😂👍.

I have booked my theory for 25th February 2017.

Overall, my driving has been okay I haven’t killed anyone or crashed…yet. I’ve only just mounted a pavement😬.

The only thing I can pick out that’s a bit bad is my spatial awareness; it’s absolutely awful! So yes I haven’t crashed yet but it has been close!!

Sometimes I think I can squeeze through a gap and to other people it’s very clear I cannot! Or if I’m driving down a road that’s narrow with cars parked along the side I will drive very close to the the parked cars nearly clipping them, causing my dad to freak out in the car. Driving with dyspraxia takes a bit of getting used to, with multi-tasking with changing gears, knowing when to brake and how to turn windscreen wipers on and off😂.

So my parents thought getting a small car for me would help rather than the average sized long car.

They decided to buy me a 2013 Volkswagen UP! Which I must say is a cute but very good car! It tells you what gear you’re in and when to move up or down a gear, which is very helpful! It’s also smaller so it makes spatial awareness a little easier!

Let’s pray I pass my theory so I can take a practical! So dyspraxia isn’t that bad with my driving…yet! Famous last words.

Yours sincerely, Maddie🦁🖤
