Been driving home from work. Daylight savings has been really good because it gets darker so much quicker now (and all of my hours are night hours).

I've got around 2 hours left!!  ;D
I still need to do a few driving lessons to learn parking (especially reversing) and to drive around the test area (pls keep me accountable if I haven't posted about lessons in the next few weeks!!).

Finally finished the 120 hours!!  ;D

Need to book a few driving lessons and drive around the test area soon! :)
(Definitely need to work more on reverse parking and 3 point turns!)
Also going to need to book the test soon because the earliest I can book it is next month.

Thanks!! At the moment becoming a lot more confident driving has been really nice. I'm really bad at directions so being able to drive around my area now without asking my dad where I have to turn all the time has been good. :)

Apart from today, I haven't actually driven since I got my 120 hours (back in May)!! I've had a couple of friends (some who are 2 years younger then me) get their licenses recently and with holidays at the moment it'd be really nice to be able to drive myself places.

I drove home from the beach today, then we spent 10 minutes trying to go over reverse parking and 3 point turns (which I'm still terrible at).

I have my first driving lesson tomorrow morning! It's going for 1 1/2 hr, and will start at my house and then go around some of the test area. From then, he'll tell me how many lessons I need and when to go for the test. I'm hoping to have my license by November! :D
