Just looking at how the drivers step on those three pedals, I thought driving would be something I can learn swiftly. I was right, but I was also wrong. Dead wrong.
Learning it by listening was a piece of cake to me, but the actual application is another thing. It has always been that way anyway.
I found it hard to maintain control over the pedals, especially the gas pedal, in my first attempt. Every time I try to step on the gas pedal, it would seem that I'm stepping too hard; I'm heavy-footed. And when I do sort of get to the right level, I find it hard to maintain that step, because it's straining my joint.
Another thing I found difficulty in is the use of the steering wheel, particularly the turning of it. I still don't know how to estimate how much turning I need to do to turn left or right. What I didn't find it hard though is the use of the switches for the wipers and the lights.
My previous lesson had me driving along the length of the highway; it was a experience totally new to me. It's good that I was able to maintain control of the car despite the constant engine shut-offs. After that lesson, I can now also do U-turns, K-turns back turns and a little bit of parallel parking.
I still have two more sessions left, but after that, I wonder how much more time it will take for me to get used to the driver's seat.
