hello sa inyo. Hirap din ako mag drive. Hindi pa rin ako makapagdrive magisa. Hopefully matuto nako. ang  hirap ng may motor bigla bigla sulpot ng sulpot. Wala pa kasi sa tamang lane madalas. Lalo na pag gitgitan hay

Dati every morning bago pumasok sa work at pag uwian na, stressed na ako kase magdadrive na naman.  What kept me going was the fact that I have spent a lot of money to get my license, so everytime ayaw ko magdrive iisipin ko na yung ginastos ko haha!

Nakakainspire posts nyo.

I also want to drive pero intermittent yung lessons kasi hubby is working.like you, kabado din ako sobra na everytime sabak sa driving pagbaba ko ng car,pawisan underarms ko na parang ako yung tumakbo.

I am determined to learn and drive. Tagal ko na din talaga gusto kaya sabi ko sa sarili ko, its now or never. Driving should be the skill I need to learn before I change my age 😜

I'm also a new lady driver! :)
i admit i still have a lot to learn when it comes to parking in a full carpark. Pero, unlike nung super newbie ako na i was super nervous then...now i am confident and kinda relaxed na when driving. Dati, everytime may 1 hr driving lesson ako, pagod na pagod ako at masakit katawan. Yun pala kasi tense ako while driving. Ngayon hindi na.

But my hubby still wants to chaperone me when driving. Okay lang. tapos yung hubby ko ang mas madali mag-panic kesa sa akin (palibhasa he's been driving for 20+years na).
Tulad ng may bagong lugar kaming pinuntahan and yung nilikuan ko pala papasok sa parking ay one way at mali, nagpanic na sya wala namang ibang sasakyan. Buti na lang hindi ako basta naaapektuhan. Iniintindi ko na lang ang concern nya.

Now im driving a mini cooper (A/T) and he's planning to buy me an SUV. Iniisip ko panibagong adjustment na naman yun.

Ask ko lang sa mga sis who are driving SUV.... hindi ba mahirap i-drive at i-park mga ganung sasakyan? Esp for a new driver?

^nakapag drive na ako ng suv automatic pero nahihirapan ako sa parking siguro kasi sanay ako magdrive ng maliit lang na sasakyan. Kaya sinabi ko kay hubby na hindi ko type.

^^Sis medyo maninibago ka siguro sa parking.  Pero I believe masasanay ka rin, madali na yun kase di naman na totally bago ka sa pagdadrive.  If you know the trick sa pagpapark, then you will certainly be fine.

I'm still driving a small car, walang hassle kase madaling sumingit singit at magpark, pero when it comes kase sa safety, kahit pano mas maganda pag SUV.  I remember nung naaksidente ako before, nabangga ako ng Ford Explorer.  Yung likuran ko yuping yupi, tapos sya parang wala man lang gasgas.  Even my co-worker, yung wife niya Nissan Altima (Sedan) ang dinadrive para panghatid sa kids sa school, they changed into an SUV after an accident for their kid's safety.

So if for example, may kids kayo palagi sa car mas maganda na mag-invest sa mas malaking sasakyan.   But if pang-everyday byahe to work and home, city area, no kids... ok na maliit na sasakyan.

Planning to enroll to a driving school next year. Kuha pa ako ng lakas ng loob. hehe
Tinuruan na ako ng father ko before, owner type jeep, sa sobrang kaba ko nung may kasalubong kami na car, nalaglag kami sa kanal. haha! since then, ayaw ko na magdrive. But now na kumuha na kami ng car ni hubby, manual transmission din, plan ko na to learn how to drive para naman kahit wala si hubby makakaalis ako, hehe

Practice lang ng practice mga sis. Drive lang ng drive to have lots of practice.

Nakapag-long drive na ako. Longest so far was 160km. Tapos i drove for almost 3hrs. Nakakapagod din pala, but it was exciting.hehe

I just get frustrated lang with the GPS sometimes. I really don't want to follow the GPS blindly. Gusto ko pag may pupuntahan akong bagong lugar, titignan ko talaga muna sa google maps and i want to find the easiest route myself (other than the major highways,  which i avoid for now)

Been driving for 5 months pa lang and 5 months pa lang din auto namin. So far, no accidents, no sabit, gasgas. 1 time lang namali ako ng tantsa ng break, hindi ko napansin na mababa pala tapos rocky e bumitaw na 'ko, so nagtuloy tuloy kami, natulala ako for like 2 seconds tapos bumalik presence of mind ko sabay apak ng break, gradual at hindi biglang break. So far okay naman kami, sakay ko pa daughter ko nun.  ;D

I drive for 30-45mins to and from work 6x a week so grabe din ang practice 'ko. Middle east based kami kaya everyday here is like joining a race, lahat nagmamadali! Yung mga Land Cruiser na a second ago nasa likod mo lang, makikita mo nalang nasa unahan mo na. Honk mo ng slight at ikaw pa mali?! I was so scared din in the beginning but I conquered everything kasi I really want to learn and I have always been independent and I think plus points ang driving.

For newbies like me, here's some tips that I can attest to:

1. Conquer your fear. Go drive!
2. Always wear seatbelt, fix the mirrors. Make sure you're comfortable.
3. Say a little prayer for your safe journey.
4. Use signals accordingly. Hazzard kung sudden stop. Hazzard kung aatras. Look at the mirrors, be mindful of other cars.
5. Aralin mo yung auto, dapat familiar ka kung mahigpit ba manibela, makapit yung break, matagal kumagat yung gas. Before ka pumunta sa mga main roads, make sure familiar kana. I drive a Hyundai Accent and nung bagong labas sya, medyo matagal kumagat yung gas lalo pag go  sa signal light, nabubusinahan ako. Pero later on, nagamay ko sya.

I passed my road test on my 3rd try. I had to pay almost 70,000php just to get my license so there's no way I would ever give up on driving. My end in mind every single day is to arrive home safe to my family. I know na not all drivers think the same at iritang-irita din ako sa mga nagcecellphone while driving... I mean, how stupid can some people get?!!!

Just keep practicing. Siguro on my 2nd month of driving everyday, masasabi ko na confident na ako. My husband is relaxed while on the passenger seat too. Napapakapit pa kasi ang kaskasera ko daw... Na-adopt ko din kasi yung driving style dito at naiirita na din ako ng slight pag nagmamabagal sa main roads, tapos pag tinapatan mo makikita mo na nagmomobile pala.  :-\
Malala pa nga dito kasi patiwakal mga roundabouts, at busina kung busina at flash kung flash talaga mga kasabayan mo. Pero ganun talaga, ginusto ko to eh, haha!

Pinaka importante sa lahat, do not forget to pray.
Before driving, I hold on to my rosary in the car and say this short prayer: "Lord, please bring me/us safe to my destination. Please take charge. Thank you."

I enrolled at driving school,my first two days sa manual grabe ang stressed ko. Nafrustrate sa akin yung instructor ko, LOL kaya bigat ng katawan ko nung umuwi kahit 3 hrs [textspeak!] ang driving lesson ko i almost wanted to stop my driving lesson kasi di ko gusto yung nagtuturo sa akin. Nagrest mo na ako ng ilang days then shift to automatic na nung pagbalik ko at iba na rin instructor ko. Nangapa ulit ako pero mas relax na i even enjoyed parking in parallel and vertical kaya lakas loob ko magvolunteer to park our car pag-uwi ko but of course may help pa rin ng asawa ko. At nagawa ko naman, next thing i need to conquer is city driving.
bawal ang negative vibes. ♥♥♥

I'm driving an SUV. Mas gusto ko yun kasi mataas. Yung kotse ni hubby is crossover which is okay for me pero when we got an SUV (when we had a baby), parang amazed na amazed ako. Hehe. I guess practice talaga is the key. Kabado din ako dati pero ngayon sobrang chill ko na and may mga days na parang gusto kong umalis just so I can drive. Kasama ko pa lagi yung 9 month of baby ko nyan. Baby sits at the back sa car seat and ok naman sya. But I don't tell hubby that. I still like that he drives for us saka ayoko syang pasahero eh, masyadong backseat driver.

If I am going to a place that I am unfamiliar, I check my routes first sa gps before I go.

Although last Friday, malakas ang snow and hangin and inabutan kami ng dilim sa daan. Sobrang kaba ko pero buti na lang medyo traffic so cars aren't driving that fast.
