from former pupils:
love a good ol' challenge, but driving was one I just couldn't face
in the past. I felt at ease the moment I met my instructor; Malcolm
brought the necessary calm, controlled instruction needed to get my
confidence and skills up to a level which allowed me to pass my test
on the first attempt. Thanks again!!..."
drove my first pickup truck on Saturday - a Toyota Tacoma. It was
by far the biggest car I've driven to date, and it took a lot of
balls to drive. At first, my main concern was just handling the
truck and keep it positioned correctly in the road, but the worst
part of the experience was towards the end of the evening - Chicago
being what it is, I found myself in a part of town where there had
been a shooting, and there were consequently police cars everywhere.
Turning into a side road with parked cars on both sides, I found
that my way was blocked by a pair of police cars interrogating some
suspects, and I was forced to perform a three-point turn in the
narrowest road I've seen in a while, in the biggest car I've ever
driven. I found someone's driveway to give me some extra room, but
nonetheless I drove as slowly as I could, turning the wheel like
Beelzebub himself had commanded me to do so. I had managed to extend
the turn into five points, but just as I was on the last two, two
more police cars came into the side road, patiently waiting for
me to complete my maneuver.
So, there I was taking up the whole road in the middle of a five-point
turn, tell myself to hurry up so as not to p*** off Chicago's finest,
but also telling myself to be absolutely careful not to hit ANYTHING,
least of all the vehicles of said finest. I'm happy to report that
I executed the turn to the approval of the onlooking policemen.
So there you have it - you trained me so well that I can do it in
a car twice as big as the one you taught me in, with representatives
of the Chicago law enforcement community inspecting for quality

been a dyed-in-the-wool motorcyclist for the past twenty something
years I have to say that I was more than a little nervous about
learning to drive. The last car I had control of was a three-litre
Granada back in the 1980s that, using all my natural skills and
abilities, I reversed at speed into a large building.
So, as you can probably imagine, the thought of being let loose
in a car on the public roads again was more than a little on the
scary side. However, once Malcolm had opened the window and all
the butterflies that’d taken up residence in my digestive tract
had made a break for freedom, it actually all went rather well.
Despite being almost as old as God’s dog, I actually have no idea
what most of the controls in a car do or how they work, but he explained
them all in a relaxed manner and immediately put me at my ease and,
once we’d swapped seats and I was now the one behind the steering
wheel, his easy-going manner allowed me to relax and just concentrate
on what I was doing without any pressure.
The initial lesson lasted two hours and in that time he covered
absolutely everything I needed to know from the basics of how a
car works to road positioning to how to hold the steering wheel
properly and, despite the fact that it took me a while to get my
head around the fact that cars, unlike motorcycles, have a non-linear
gearbox, he continued to talk me through every manoeuvre no matter
I got into the car with more than a slight feeling of trepidation,
but I got out totally fired-up for my next lesson..."

I hope everything is well with you, and thanks again..."
