During my NZ, My wife and I booked the rental car (auto Nissan bluebird 1.8L) online before we flew to NZ and they came to fetch us at the airport. Once received car, next thing was visit the i-site. We booked the accommodation there. All towns will have a i-site for tourist to book accommodation, collect maps, package tour and etc.

hmmm i am learning to drive.... juz too lazy to go do FT.... ahahahaha yeah went for driving, kinda nice, but i think i like to speed.... bad right?
i am not a GUY... erm ya...
I started driving in 1972 and passed my UK test in the same year and Im still learning driving now everything changes so quickly its hard work keeping up with it all , I could park my car in the street no problem then .... but now .. its a nightmare getting parked anywhere other than your own driveway / garage ... so many car so little room for them .
My first new car was a Brooklands Ford Capri 2.9i bought in 1983 .. Tokyo Drift had nothing on this baby it drifted everywhere ... rear wheel drive .. those were the days , I had to fill the petrol tank up or put a bag of sand in the boot to keep the back wheels on the road
For anyone taking your test in the near future .. the best of luck , I hope you enjoy your driving as much as I have

Problem is that I am tall, long leg somemore. Seat push max, instructor still ask me to push more. I tried to feel the biting point, very high, almost my leg about to release already. Maybe shoe sole too thick and cause me to feel differently? See how next lesson, maybe more chance to stop n go as learning during evening time.
soft sole shoes are preferred for learner drivers. u can feel better. i dont think ur height matters, cos there are most probably people with ur height who had gone thru this stage.
sometimes the engine stalls because u didnt apply enough acceleration. so u can follow snowcrash and ramp till 3k rpm (not 3 rpm, haha) then play with clutch.
also try not to rest ur heal on the floor. it's best to follow the method in the theory book cos u can feel the clutch better that way. (at least it worked for me when i was learning)
