  5. It works! They actually listen.

    You seriously contemplate changing careers; you’d be a great driving instructor!

  6. You genuinely fear for your life and your car at least once…

  7. Tension.

    Apparently shouting is not received very well by a nervous learner driver.

  8. You both get back on the horse.

    Please, please don’t raise my blood pressure higher.

  9. By Jove! I think they’ve got it!

    You’re proud of your kid but secretly also of yourself.

    Now they can buy themselves some Car Sharing Insurance and make their own way from A to B!

Hi I'm Louise and I'm a Marketing Executive at Veygo. I've been driving for nearly two years after several "practice" tests! I love the freedom that comes with finally having a driving licence. Road trips with my friends are the best - especially when we've got an awesome playlist going! (check out our Spotify for road trip playlists!)
