Driving Lesson Day 1

Sunday, August 04, 2019


July 17, 2019, Monday, my first day on learning how to drive... I am actually nervous. I'm scared, what if I mess up and make a mistake that will result to an accident... That's how freak out I am to driving.
When I arrived at Oddysey Driving School office they let me watch a video on the basic terms use in driving,  and the controls of the car which is essential to know when driving, and Oddysey teaching technique (which I actually don't understand what). 🤔
After 30 minutes, im off to meet my instructor. He drove me to Taguanao while telling me the controls and what to do. For a newbie with no background on cars and driving, I'm so confuse on everything he said because his so fast and he was driving so his not really pointing on the controls he just mentioned.
When I sat on the drivers seat and start driving I was really scared. I was expecting we will practice the basics of driving (like what I saw in the YouTube tutorials) at a quiet residential street, but no I am going to drive at a slope, downhill, and uphill road. Imagine my terror! 😱 Good thing I watched some manual driving tutorials in YouTube beforehand so I was able to have an idea what I should do.
I struggled on the curves and staying on my lane. The drivers car seat is giving me hard time to look on the road in the side mirrors. I don't like my instructors reaction every time I made a mistake...  I need to tell him what to teach me, his not really mindful of his student feelings and learning progress. He only starts to mind when I already made a mistake or we almost met accident.
Thankfully, amidst the struggle on learning and trying to understand my un-organized instructor I survived day one. As expected, I'm not excited on the next session because of my instructor. He seem to be the bigger source of my fear and pressure in driving. I don't think I will get my money worth having him as an instructor. I requested the office for a replacement but sadly they said they have no available driver to replace him.

About The Look....

There was a restrictions on what to wear during the session. No wearing of slippers, sandals, high heels, short pants and sando. And so I opted for a casual comfy style.
