He closed the door and turned on the air; I put on the key, started the car and brought down the hand brake. There were no cars so I drove through Ugarte Moscoso and turned to get out to Salaverry. Before taking the hardest way immediately, going down the Costa Verde, he first told me to drive through the Miraflores malecon so that I would get familiar with more cars around me, stoping and advancing in traffic and traffic lights.
During my first light in Salaverry the clutch got me before I stepped on the accelerator and the car turned off. Meaning that the clutch came up too fast before I accelerated and this caused the car to turn off. When this happened I got very stressed because the cars started to beep at me and the people beside me would scream. But I focused on myself and not on the other people and I asked my instructor why that happened, he would tell me my mistake and what to do so it didn't happen again. Once I knew exactly what I was doing wrong I begun to get more confidence in myself because I already knew what was wrong so I evade it. Little things like this came up along the way, and little by little I begun to realize what are some mistakes I repeat why they happen and how to evade them and this is how I got more and more confident. Once you know how the car works exactly it gives you so much comfort, you never doubt or are insecure about anything because you know it all.
