In the world of being a young person, there are some pretty big milestones to hit. Passing exams, going to University and getting your first “real” job are just a few examples. But one of the most nerve-wracking things to do (in my mind) is learning to drive.
I live in rural Cornwall. And unless you’ve ever spent some time living or holiday-ing in Cornwall, you won’t know that public transport here is slow, expensive and infrequent. A hour drive to somewhere like Newquay(for example) , can take hours on the bus and train. And there are some places that are virtually inaccessible to get too unless you drive.
So at the age of 23, I decided that enough was enough and I was going to learn to drive. And just under a year later, here I am, a week into solo driving with my test passed. So I thought that as I’m so new at driving, it would be a good time to offer my tips for any wannabe drivers out there.
