Good morning to half and good evening to other half of the world. Hope you’re having a nice day. Well yesterday I had my very first drivers test, not official but with my dad.
I finished my 15 day driving course a week ago. My dad was in Italy so my mom wanted me to wait for him. She wanted me to drive with dad first before I hit the road and then drivers test for license. Anyways, so yesterday I hit the car for the first time. It was more intimidating than the first time I hit that trainers car, more because now I knew that I only have all the controls of the car. In trainee car they have 2 sets of accelarator brake and clutch…. One is with the trainee and one with the trainer. So if one makes a mistake then he takes over. But here I had it all, so I had goosebumps all over me.
I have a Maruti Suzuki Alto. So I sat in the car and I froze. I had my hands on the steering wheel and they were frozen. After 10 deep breaths I hit the keys and started the car.
Oh My god…. The sound of the engine running is so scary. My forehead was sweating. My dad advised me not to start AC coz then its a tad bit difficult to drive and especially for a newbie like me…. Like new newbie like me. Anyways so I hit the clutch took the first gear. I hate gears….they’re complicated. I love auto gear changing cars. I’ll buy that one only when I do. So I started releasing the clutch and slowly touched the accelarator. But I guess I pressed it tad bit hard and the car made sounds like “zoooom zoooooooom” like F1 racing cars. I took my leg away. Again I started releasing the clutch and just touched accelarator. The wheels started moving and so did the car. It was vibrating like hell. I released clutch too early. So I pressed it again, then car got slow….so again I repeated the set.
So now we’re moving. Very slowly…. I barely hit 15 kmph. After a few metres I had to take a turn…. It was successful but then after the 2nd turn…. On the third there was an audi right in front of me. Now about these big car owners…. For some reason they think just because they own an audi or bmw they own the road. So I froze and hit the brake hard and car stopped.
Surprisingly that audi driver was good or maybe he figured such a dodo driver thus alto guy is, whatever, well he decided to reverse the car a bit and give me a way. So I started the car again and I was able to make the car move on the first go. Yay I was so relieved.
Finally after 15 mins we reached back home. It was a successful venture. Now I’m going right now too. So lets see what happens.
