We do all make mistakes tho .... nobody has ever accused me of being under confident in a car (perhaps the opposite ) but I have made my fair share of mistakes at junctions and been in the wrong lane at the wrong time as I'm sure almost everybody has. Local knowledge is a wonderful thing
Yeah agreed there. I've read my thread title again and it does seem I am a self-important model driver. I AM NOT. I have written off every car I have ever owned :loser: - except my Megane (so far, touch wood, thud-thud). I am far from a perfect driver but I see others who are far worse than me, and this is what winds me up.

As for extra tuition on the motorways - it is available, but of course, you have to pay for it
