As I remarked to my instructor, “Driving is easy. It's all the other cars that are the problem.”
Status report after lesson 1 of 3: Turning corners and handling intersections are my current weak points. I'm also not too good about keeping a watch on my rear-view mirror. Other than that, I'm doing well. Especially considering that it was raining the whole time.
I do wish that cars would come with rear-window (including passenger windows) wipers standard. You're supposed to look out of it before making a right turn at an intersection or pulling away from a curb. But I could barely see anything for all the water drops there. The mirrors were working much better for these purposes.
Two more hours tomorrow.
