naalala ko yung isang sis sa thread 1 na sabi nya pag umuuwi sila ng hubby nya magkagalit na sila. lol. kami rin ni hubby pag ako ang nagdrive may times nag aaway kami. like kanina. sabi nya "wag ka mag panic". sabi ko "hindi ako nagpapanic sa jeep! nagpapanic ako kasi nakaka panic ka!" hehe.

I've been trying to find a support group for ladies who are just starting to drive.  sobrang nafrufrustrate kasi ako, feeling ko ang b*b* ko for not being able to drive alone. sobra din ang kaba ko kaya siguro di pa ako ganon talaga kaconfident mag drive. nagstart ako ng thread 2 akala ko wala pang nagstart. anyway pinadelete ko na yon at nagpost uli me dito. here's my story

I just finished my 10 hours driving lesson dito sa place namin couple of weeks ago. after that siguro more than a week pa bago ako nagtry ipractice ng father ko. I should say okay naman yun pagdrive ko sa driving school although napansin ko ang biggest problem ko is pagnakafull stop ako then nakafirst gear siya namamatayan ako. di ko pa din ganon kabisado yun shifting ng gears kasi minsan akala ko nasa 3rd gear ako yun pala nasa 5th :-[  syempre di ako ganon kanerbyos sa driving school kasi alam ko na safe yun car dahil may sariling break yun instructor so nakaraos naman ako for 5 days. eto na nung ipapractice nako ng father ko nagkakamali mali ako sa shifting ng gears at ilang beses akong namamatayan pag nakastop tapos naka1st gear ako. 2nd day na tinuruan niya ko sobrang bumaba ang confidence ko sa pagdrive kasi di ko makuha ang hanging muntik pako makanal. nangangamoy na yun clutch ko di ko pa din makuha yun sinasabi niyang timpla daw. hayyyy sobrang naiinis, naaasar at naiirita ako sa sarili ko kasi di ko makuha. mas lalo pa ako nainis kasi yun churchmate namin na kelan lang nagpractice hindi pa sa driving school nadadala na niya car niya sa church, waaaahhh pano ba ko matututo. naiinis na tatay ko panay na ang sigaw sakin di ko pa din makuha. balak ko tuloy maghire na lang ako ng professional driver papaturo na lang ako using my car. matindi talaga nerbiyos ko na baka makabangga or may mangyaring di maganda pero at the same time i really wanted to drive alone para maigala ko naman mga kids ko. BTW, long drive kaya ko na lalo na pag maluwang yung road pero sa siksikan at maliliit na kalye naku di ko yata kaya.

^Wag ka na magpaturo sa dad mo kung sinisigawan ka, lalo bababa confidence mo, or baka lalo ka mataranta while on the road. Ang mga driving instructor kase may screening yata ang pasensya nila bago makuha sa trabaho haha ;D

^Teka, so wala ka pang lisensya, student's permit pa lang? Yung father mo, professional ang lisensya?

If not, ingat, baka mahuli. Alam ng traffic enforcers pag studyante nagd-drive lalo na pag masyado mabagal.

Sis proudmama, same experience tayo before, talagang dumating na sa puntong umiiyak nko habang nagppraktis kami ng tatay ko dahil sa sobrang sigaw niya sakin. Lalo na diyan sa hanging method. sobrang perfectionist kasi niya ayaw niya na umaatras yung kotse kahit 1 inches :(( kaya nag-driving school ako, mga 7 days, okay na ako (: wag ka lang kabahan sis.

pag nasa 1st gear ka okay lang na dumiin ka sa gas basta yung clutch mo wag mo agad bibitawan. timpla timpla lang ng clutch. sis makukuha mo din yan! aja! aja! :)

#1 tip para sa lahat:

LAKASAN ANG LOOB. Very effective ito mga sis.

Ex ko ang nagturo sa akin magdrive dati, palagi pa kami nagsisigawan noon. Pero nitong isang araw may pinuntahan kami, sabi ko siya na magdrive ng kotse ko, ako ang takot na takot kasi iba siya magmaneho. Nakipag-palit na ako sakanya, sobrang proud siya dahil mas magaling pa daw ako ngayon sa kanya magdrive.

Try to buy a cheaper car. 'yung pwede niyong pagpractice, 'yung nakikita niyong sinusunog sa mga action movie. Haha.

Drive lang ng drive. Gagaling din tayong lahat!
Blah blah blah!

sis jamie, yup student pa laang ako and don't worry professional license ng tatay ko. ayoko pa nga manguha ng nonprof kasi wala nakong dahilan di magdrive mag isa.

@ sis tooth fairy, nag driving school na din ako pero nakakainis di tinuro yun hanging, long drive kaya ko naman

@sweetsorrow, car namin di naman bago 2001 model pa yon. ang kaba ko lang e makasagi ako ng ibang car o madisgrasya

now di naman nako nakakapagpractice busy na father ko maghatid sa mga apo sa school hay sigurado pag humawak na naman ako maninibago na naman ako nito

hello mga sis! well, im not a frustrated lady driver. I am proud to be a Lady Driver and I would like to share my experience.

We have a car (Automatic Transmission) and para sa amin ng sister ko yun. Matagal ko ng gustong matuto noon but walang gustong magturo and si Dad, he never wanted us to learn how to drive. But since oldies na siya, no choice na siya kungdi payagan kami at may basbas na rin ni Mom and meron na rin kaming Student Permit.

Yung "yayo" namin ang person whom my Mom instructed to teach us. Every Sunday afternoon niya kami tinuturuan. Ako muna then sister ko. Natuto naman ako pero I dunno, I was not that interested and maingat. Till sinabi ng "yayo" namin na si Sister marunong ng magdrive and si Ate (me) mga 3 years pa daw before pwedeng ilarga sa daan. In a span of 8 Sundays yun. Wala daw sa loob ko ang mag-drive.

Well, I was so frustrated kase si Sis nakakapag-drive na pag aalis kami basta kasama si dad and ako hatid-sundo lang.

Tapos si Hubby(nung mag GF-BF palang kami) has his own car and he saw my frustration. He taught me how to drive. He wants me to learn and ayaw niyang malamangan ako ni Sis.  ;D
Ganun niya ako ka-love!

Manual Transmission ang sasakyan niya and yung ang ginamit ko. 500.00 pang gas and 4 hours later = sa highway na ako nagdr-drive.  ;D

I never told my mom na marunong na ako magdrive. Puro puri sila kay Sis and akala ng others I do not know how to drive until one day, there was a party and sinama ko si Hubby (then BF) and I was the one driving.  :P My mom was shocked since she knows na Student's Permit lang ang meron ako, well, mali siya. Inayos na ni Hubby ang Driver's License ko to Non-Pro and si sis Student's Permit pa lang.

Well, Hubby bought me a car. Manual Transmission siya ang I love it so much.

sis proudmama, lakasan lang talaga ng loob yan at dapat confident ka.
Yung problem mo na naka-stop at 1st gear ka at namamatayan pag-andar, yan din ang problem ko dati. Dapat makuha mo yung 'biting point' ng clutch. Yun yung pag inangat mo ng dahan-dahan yung clutch, mararamdaman mong parang nag-rerebolusyon yung makina then dapat yung naka-ready ka na sa gas para smooth ang takbo, hindi ka mamamatayan ng makina. :)

Dati akong frustrated lady driver pero proud lady driver na ngayon :D
Last year ko lang nakuha ang non-pro license ko sa pinas pero nagddrive na ako since I was 15. So mejo boost ng confidence yan. Pero ayaw pa din ipadrive sa akin ng tatay ko yung sasakyan namin na ako lang mag-isa. Pero one time pinayagan ako, sobrang proud na ako nun. haha. Tas ok na sa kanyang idrive ko mag-isa yung sasakyan namin, confident na din sya sa driving ko.

So eto na, nagpunta ako dito sa UK. Napabili ako ng kotse (manual transmission din) ng di oras kasi napilit ako ng kaibigan ng nanay ko na andito. Although marunong na akong mag-drive, kelangan kong mag-practice dito kasi right-hand drive dito.

Kumuha ako ng driving lessons dito para lang masanay. Sabi nung instructor sa akin, masyado daw akong nasa left ng road which is understandable kasi nga left hand drive sa pinas. So pag wala akong driving lessons, dina-drive ko na yung kotse ko para makapag-practice (license sa pinas ang gamit ko na valid for 1yr dito). Hanggang sa naging confident na ako. So kuha na ako ng theory exam, naipasa naman (thank God!) para makakuha ng practical exam para maging full UK license ako.

So tuloy pa din ang pag-ddrive ko dito habang naghihintay ng schedule ng practical exam ko. Sabi nga sa akin ng isang kaibigan ko, ang galing ko na daw mag-drive ;D Syempre proud naman ako. Mahirap lang talaga mag-drive sa central London kasi sobrang trapik at marami ding g*gong drivers.

Nung malapit na practical exam ko, nag-lessons ulit ako. 2nd to the last lesson ko before the practical exam, parang wala ako sa sarili. Sabi sa akin ng instructor tingin nya hindi pa daw ako ready mag-practical exam , nitong October lang yan, nag-ppractice na akong mag-drive since June. Para akong sinabugan nun. Sabi ko hindi, kaya ko ng mag-drive at kakayanin ko ang practical exam.

Nung araw ng practical exam, may nerbyos pa din ako. Although kasama ko ang instructor ko sa likod ng kotse, wala naman syang say eh. Mag-oobserve lang sya sa akin. Ang katabi ko yung examiner. Kaya after nung practical exam, dun lang ako nakahinga ng maluwag. At nung sinabi sa akin ng examiner na napasa ko yung practical exam, napa-iyak talaga ako sa tuwa! Pati instructor ko napayakap sa akin sa tuwa din siguro. Di nya akalain na mapapasa ko. haha.

Kaya mga sis, kaya natin yan!! Wag kayong madala or mag-panic pag sinisigawan kayo ng nag-tuturo sa inyo. Hayaan nyo sila. Basta dapat cool lang at focused sa pag-ddrive :D
Life's a beach....Enjoy!!!

Lady driver din ako. Nag-driving lessons ako 2nd year college ako, 10 days kasi ang driving lessons. On the 11th day gusto ko ipractice yun car namin, pero ayaw ipahiram ng younger brother ko. Mas nauna kasi siya naglessons. So yun mom ko ang nagpahiram ng van namin sakin, dun ako napractice talaga, at dahil na din sa tiwala ng mom ko at sa tigas ng tuktok ko magdrive sa highway. Haha! After 2 mos ko pa ata pnrocess ang non-pro ko after ko matuto magdrive.
