    How important is it to know how to drive?

    Assalamu alaykum

    How many of you drive? How easy has it made your life? Could you imagine a life without knowing how to drive?

    Hit me up with some motivation please as my test is coming up and i am so close to just giving up as I just get so nervous and do some really dumb stuff

    ive got a phobia of buses and I can't uber for the rest or my life so I do need to pass but it's just so hard controlling my nerves and it's costing me £50 per week for lessons, I can't really keep on forking out to only fail.

    "And throw that which is in your right hand! It will swallow up that which they have made. That which they have made is only a magician's trick,

    Do not give up. Keep trying until you pass.

    Driving is absolutely essential as an adult. My father passed away this year, my mother did not learn to drive before he died, she's in her 50's now and she regrets it so much, especially as her health has also deteriorated, she has eyesight issues so she cannot learn now even if she wanted to.

    She has to wait for my brother who can drive, to take her places such as appointments. She can take public transport, but you can't always do that. It gets harder to do so later on. I am learning to drive, but it really makes you feel a bit useless because its also affected the type of work I can look for as well. It has to be local and easy to access by public transport. Having a car really makes things easier.

    Don't worry if you don't get it the first time, just keep practicing. Even if its costing you money, in the long-term it is only for your benefit.

    Sorry to hear about your father sis.

    You're right, I can't give up. If I fail my test, I will look at it as a practise run and just to re take Insha Allah.

    If you live in a city like London, then it's probably not really worth learning to drive as public transport usually ends up being cheaper, quick, and easier. However, if you live outside the city, then it's difficult not to have a car in your life.

    Plus, not much beats driving on a sunny day aimlessly listening to nasheeds!

    Insha Allah. I wanted to pass before the test changes on 4 Dec but having thought about it, I think the changes will benefit me (I can't reverse around the corner and it's getting scrapped!) Insha Allah I won't give up

    If you can afford it try to have more than one lesson a week. When I first started taking lessons I was only having one lesson a week so by the time it was the next lesson I forgot what I had learnt. Alhumdulillah I was able to have more lessons during the week and that helped alot.

    Think positive and should be ok inshaAllah. No one became an expert at driving just like that. Practice and plenty of it will help.

    I've been having two lessons a week alhumdulillah.

    I think my problem is that I am a bit too confident on the road and so I speed and then my instructor makes me nervous by saying things like 'I know you can handle it but on your test the examiner will slam their brakes straight away and you'll automatically fail!' I know she's right but it
    Makes me nervous!

    Also, I drive well but when my instructor talks to me I lose track and speed lol. I'm just really rubbish at two manoeuvres and that's making me anxious.

    Im just going to be positive Insha Allah. I have two main issues 1- speeding and 2- manoeuvres. i really need my license though so I am going to concentrate and just relax a bit more Insha Allah

    Makes me nervous!

    Also, I drive well but when my instructor talks to me I lose track and speed lol. I'm just really rubbish at two manoeuvres and that's making me anxious.

    Im just going to be positive Insha Allah. I have two main issues 1- speeding and 2- manoeuvres. i really need my license though so I am going to concentrate and just relax a bit more Insha Allah
    Alhamdulilah, with more lessons, you will get more experience eventually.
    I did play some simulation games online to kind of visualise a bit.
    Estimate the edge of the body of your car when turning to avoid hitting the kerb.
    Important to check blindspots, as I think thats one of main points. So get the habit going.
    The more mistakes you make, the more you learn actually.

    The parking part is quite boring imo.

    Simulation games online seems like a really good idea I will try it out

    I can parallel park like an expert Alhumdulilah but just can't bay park and apparently that's easier than parallel park! I've not had much practise with manoeuvres though and my test is soon so I'll just have to keep on practising until my test.

    Oh ok, cool.parallel park is the more difficult thing to do imo. Especially if in a situation where you squeeze in between 2 cars.

    It would certainly open more doors for you. not being able to drive will limit you from getting jobs due to distance. and it's not always good to rely on public transport.

    Re: How important is it to know how to drive?

    I failed my test.

    I didn't want to take it as my grandmother passed away on Friday and my test was on Monday and I have loads on my mind but my instructor was being long. Guess what, I went into the test not knowing how to reverse around the corner but subhanallah I got such a nice examiner who gave me three point turn lol but I messed up on a mini roundabout. Yes that's right, I did all the spiral roundabouts / countryside roads fine but messed up on a mini roundabout. (I thought I was going straight ahead so didn't signal but the exit was slightly to the right and anyway it wasn't even the way I was supposed to be going)

    Oh well.

    Re: How important is it to know how to drive?

    I went into the test knowing that I will fail (I didn't know how to reverse round the corner) and I wasn't fully ready (but my instructor kept telling me to go) but I was really gutted when I failed because I actually did well right up until the mini roundabout which was on the way back to the test centre. I know it's Qadr but I feel like such a looser, the examiner was really nice as well. I got country side roads as well which is what I wanted (driving at 60mph!) but I guess it wasn't meant to be. I've only had 27 lessons so I think I'll take a few more and then book another test

    It was independent driving so I was told to go ahead so obviously I thought that meant straight ahead (where a signal is not required) but the exit was at say 1pm and not straight ahead so a signal was needed. Anyway it was the wrong exit and I was supposed to go left I'm a bit confused tbh I had no idea I did anything wrong on that roundabout

    So what, the average amount of hours that they recommend is 45 hours with an instructor plus 20 hours of private practise, so I'm good out here thanks.

    Plus, I've not had 27 hours of driving as the first 10-12 lessons my instructor would sit for half the lesson drawing diagrams

    You should write down all your weaknesses and ask your instructor to take you roads that test it

    You know I was only joking - you have read other posts from me.

    If it makes you feel better - When I was little my mum was going to do her test in a weeks time. My Dad let my mum drive around a very huge dam....and she plunged the car in the dam with all of us in it. My dad recovered the car eventually and my mum actually passed the very next week.

    So don't fret - we all make mistakes, we all fall, we pick up ourselves up, dust down, and plod along again.

    Salaam,

    I'm 22, failed the theory test but didn't revise for it tbh, I just don't care about driving. Not important to me at all at this moment in time.

    I took more than 27 lessons

    can't remember, so many
