INSTRUCTOR: “You are showing me that your driving habits and behaviours are not changing. You pay me to give you all the information. You then perform demonstrating this new information. But all the information is in your short-term memory, not moved into your long-term habits. So on the test day, you will not do the items you forget. And in our next lesson, you will ask me to give you all the information again. And the hour before the test day you will again ask me for the information. But it’s difficult to remember 200 items while you are trying to drive a car and pass a test!”

CLIENT: “Yes. That is correct. But I only need the information for the short term! 35 minutes actually!”
