She explained everything to me clearly and if there was anything I was unsure on she explained it until I understood. I didn’t feel afraid to make mistakes or ask questions as she made it clear that it’s fine to make mistakes as we always learn from them and ensure we don’t make the same mistake again.
We had a few obstacles along the way but Lorraine kept me calm and stopped me from panicking, an example of this was a junction we came to which neither of us were expecting and it was a really sharp corner. There was a car behind me so I was worrying about that but she reassured me that there was nothing to worry about and explained clearly how to get out of the situation. She helped with the controls and told me how to control the steering wheel to get around safely. We came to a stop and spoke about the corner as it was a learning curve for us both and we decided to go back around and try it again, working together we got back around it.
There was also a loose dog off of a lead at the side of the road so Lorraine explained that I needed to slow down and then when we had gotten past it we came to a stop and she questioned me on why the dog was a hazard and what could of potentially happened if I would of carried on driving as normal, things I probably would never of thought about but something I have learnt from today.
I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson today and look forward to another as I felt so comfortable and calm and Lorraine is simply a great teacher.
