Yeah I picked up driving pretty quick, even though I did have a few fears of failure. But luckily I had an automatic which means you really don't have to learn much in regards to operating the vehicle, because lets face it stick is a bit more difficult to learn especially when you haven't driven before.
Hehe, I had an instructor, and I slept past the time he was supposed to pick me up, literally slept through the doorbell.
I call him when I wake up, and he says I can still do the training, but I gotta drive to Los Angeles and back during rush hour. I did it, and well, yeah, it was kind of like getting into cold water, better to just jump in head first sometimes.
