Interactive tool to learn driving

When I first applied for my driving license, I was really confident. Maybe too over confident in hind sight because I failed my driving test and had to retake it.

After obtaining my driving license, I only drove short distances and that too near my house. It took me another 2 more years before I could pluck up enough courage to navigate through the crazy roads of Kuala Lumpur. I actually had to relearn how to drive all over again. I guess a lot of people go through this process.

Now it's so easy to learn to drive. This award winning 105 minute DVD from Vat19 is loaded with so many interactive features. It is hosted by teens that will relate to the driving student, and boasting high quality production values.

Some of the features include Interactive Quizzes, Multi-angle 3D explanations and Road Sign Tests among others. I really liked the fact that they put in a bonus section on basic maintenance of your vehicles. As noted on the site:
"A properly maintained car is safer and more reliable."

Also check out their AAA-certified emergency auto kit. They have thought of almost every emergency, including a bungee cord "for holding down a broken trunk or keeping a door closed".

Hehehee...I was very nervous when I took my driving license test that I didn't put on my safety belt and the worst thing I'd been on the wrong side of the road just as I was trying to drive out of the JPJ nyer driving test area.

Sexy: My mistakes were also in the JPJ compound itself. I just looked at the mirrors and drove off. I didn't know that I was supposed to adjust it, even though they were OK.

Edward: Good luck with your test.

Adam wait till you return to Malaysia for good facing indecisive and rude drivers. Then you'd wish you're back in England! Courteous drivers aren't they? (at least when I was there 20 years back.....)

Dad of four: They definitely are. I guess you have to be on the narrow town roads. All the inside roads would be clogged up if people drove like in Malaysia.
