On The Wheel

First driving lesson

The first driving lesson around the Safety Driving Centre circuit at Petaling Jaya was uneventful except for a moment of confusion when I pressed the accelerator instead of the brake during a three-point turning practice. Andy, the driving instructor was patient in explaining to me how the driving tests will be conducted. I also learnt about the technicalities of the slope test. My right hand needs more strength-building exercises. It was fatigued after forty five minutes of turning the steering wheel.
