I tried another trainer. But the trainer slammed on the brakes a dozen times every lesson. After twenty-five hours of classes, I gave up. The trainer was so scared! I could feel his fear, which makes me super scared.

Heck, I was scared long before I got in the car for lessons.

That was six years ago.

I basically gave up on learning to drive.


Recently my mom moved in with me and I realized driving a car was now very important. I must learn to drive.

I searched Reddit and found some great recommendations.

The four days before my first driving class in over six years, I was a mess, could not sleep, had crashing car dreams and reread the driver’s handbook 3 times.

At precisely 5:15 pm on the dot, a clean very nice car and a well dress smiling man greeted me. I explained my story as well as my sky-high level of anxiety.

Nighty Minutes later I was driving across Kingsway, down Willingdon, back up Patterson and all around that area! WHAAAAAAAAA! I was shocked! I still cannot believe it!

In fact, the fear drifted away, not totally, and real fun arrived! whaaaaaa!


Part of my training as an instructor included cell phone studies with Transport Canada where I was responsible to keep the driver, the PHDs in the back seat, myself and society safe while we drove multiple drivers thru rush hour traffic in downtown Ottawa while distracting them purposely with conversation and cell phones!

If they made a serious error while driving during this research, I was to NOT INTERFERE and let them make the mistakes so that they could be caught on camera. If I had helped the driver or interrupted their driving it would destroy the studies results.

As a result, I have a very different teaching style compared to slamming on the brakes ten times a lesson!

And yes I use my brakes constantly as well as my gas, as well as helping steer the car.

Come see the difference.

Or go and struggle through high-stress-learning, and then come see the difference.

COOPER

Final note. Many trainers live in fear of their entire teaching career because they have not yet figured out the skillset I learned during the Transport Canada studies. Their own solution to the fear they face is to keep total control of the car at all times and slam on the brakes and control every move your body makes while you are inside the car with them. It works! It’s simply a different method of training than what I do.
