Today, I am nervous for the first time since I started my job at Radix. Today I am hitting the roads of Falmouth and Penryn for the first driving lesson I’ve had since I stopped learning three years ago. And today I will be driving in a manual car, rather than an automatic as I had previously learned in. I have never held a full driving license.
I am very nervous.
Each time I envision my potential success or failure of this learning pursuit, my mind cycles through three particular music videos:

This blog post is the first of – hopefully – many where I share my experience of learning to drive for the second time. Just so you know, I did pass my driving theory and hazard perception test the last time round.
But it’s those gears that I’m really worried about. And at least I’m with a different driving instructor this time – the one from two years ago really wasn’t working out for me.
