My pupil and I were on a normal lesson, driving down a relatively narrow road. In the distance I saw a lorry approaching quite quickly; a new experience for my pupil.
Me: OK, what could we do to reduce risk in this situation?
Pupil: Sh*t! Cover my eyes and try not to panic!
It could have been worse – that first exclamation mark could have been a comma.
This reaches us from Jan, who learnt to drive in Lancashire
I was on my test many years ago. I had been asked to stop on a hill and because it was in the dark ages I had to do a hand signal before setting off.
So, I had my handbrake on, my left hand on the wheel and the right one sticking out the window when I realised I hadn’t got a hand to let the handbrake off. So I put my left hand on the handbrake and started off. That’s when I realised I didn’t have any hands on the wheel.
Somehow, I still managed to pass!
