Driving again after a long period of, well, not driving.

Hi everyone,

I passed my test a couple of years ago but since moving to the city I haven't needed to have a car, seeing as the transport in London is convenient. However since my boyfriend has moved in, the weekly shop is now a lot bigger and it's times like then, visiting my parents, and just being able to escape the city on a Sunday or something, where I wish I had a car. I can afford one, plus my boyfriend also drives so we'd split the cost but as I haven't driven since moving to the city early 2010 I'm a bit nervous about taking to the roads again, particularly the A roads (even though I used to find them easier than residential :S) Will I have forgotten how to drive? My decision making isn't going to be top notch so am I going to be dangerous?

I'm probably panicking for nothing but any thoughts welcome.

Hey Lme,

Why not book some refresher lessons, to give you your confidence back?

Yes, as Skarlet said, book a lesson with an instructor just for a couple of hours - you'll probably be surprised how easily it comes back to you.

OR, drive around quiet roads for a few hours and get your confidence back up?
