    Hahaha.. I always stall during practice.. I tend to be quite conservative on the gas pedal.. During test I ram more..

    This usually happens when one turn slightly early. He is 'fortunate' to get only 10 points, cause usually, once hit kerb is an immediate failure already.

    BTW, after got my licence and whenever I drive on the road now, I still will hit the kerb once in a while, especially when turning at unfamiliar places. Hehe...
    er...hit kerb only 10 points...but mount kerb=DIE!!!

    but i see the new cars looks smaller...and easier to handle...

    haha...that one hor...cause first test know the problem already...did the correction in the second test...but end up hit the other one...boring...hahahahha...

    Wah.. sighting point all different.. During my first circuit lesson, dunno why they assigned me a City instead of a Civic, went through crank coruse and S course without problems, basically wasted one lesson because next lesson on Civic strike kerb for crank course. Got to learn the car's sighting points all over again.

    Walao.. over corrected.. Maybe is because during the test blur blur, the car didn't centre and you thought you needed correction but actually not required?

    During my vertical parking practice also.. I went through the first few times swee swee, vehicle in the centre of the lot, then one day I was quite tired (IPT the night before and I got stiff shoulders), the car went off one side, sighting point correct but the turning was late.. Then I realised that I just turned my head instead of my body which I did all the time to look at the rear windscreen, so sighting point is off.. It's makes quite a difference for vertical parking because the lot is just nice for Civic. Got to be quite precise.

    Having different cars to drive is one bad thing about the Driving Centre's lessons...

    Anyway, the instructors told me they are not supposed to give me another model to drive. Sighting point still about the same for old and new Civic. But the clutch and gas pedals feels different. The older Civic seems to have a much faster half clutch speed than the new ones. It might be due to the difference in engine idling speed. ABS during E-brake also feels different.. not as shiok..

    May not be a bad thing actually because it allows you to learn to feel more of the car than just get used to one. Also the different instructors give diffferent point of view, may be confusing at times but lets you see different aspects. Plus if get someone you don't know, easier to practise as if it's the tester beside you.

    The emphasis also seems a lil different... Centres try to emphasis more on circuit driving and external trainers tend to do the reverse...

    Like, how many lessons before you get to the main road...

    2? As long as I could do the clutch properly and got a PDL, I was told to go to the road already. Basically on the road most of the time for stage 1 and 2 then come back to do the circuit for stage 3. Stages 4 and 5 basically test format, alternate between circuit and road during each practice session..

    Actually, i'm just starting to get familiar with my cousin's beat-up Mitsubishi Lancer. I just love listening to Urbandub's music on his Kenwood car stereo while driving, it get's my blood pumping!

    Actually, I don't think it's a bad thing at all. Firstly, different cars response or react differently. It's good to learn how to deal with different cars' responses, then you will be more confident to drive a totally different car any time.

    I had drove few Honda civic models and even different car of the same model during lesson, inclusive of the old vti model. Fortunately I had one lesson on the new (back then) Honda civic model, and thus was quite familiar with it already, cause the gear shift and the clutch feel is different. Cause I was allocated with one such new model during my test.

    No offence, but please be cautious, cause it's exactly such car stero and music that caused a driver to drive on a high speed unknowingly.

    For your safety, better postpone your driving lesson tomorrow.

    Either that or see if you can get an auto car to practise the sighting points, safety checks and other aspects if those are your problem area.

    Still manage to drive just now but mount kerb as I follow the path of the car infront n didn't take note of the side. I know that I going to hit the kerb but carry on, no choice.
