Great video Justin. I agree that those short run-ins to the busy N340 are quite scary at times and I have difficulty judging how far away an approaching car is when looking in the exterior side view mirror - for some reason vehicles showing in your exterior mirrors always look further away than they do when viewed in the interior rear view mirror which seems to be more accurate. Unfortunately for entering dual lane carriageways like the N340 on a short run in, the exterior mirror is the one you need to watch closely...

I would love to hire an auto but can't afford it each time we come over, so my partner ends up driving most of the time. I passed my test on manual shift years ago but have driven mainly american LHD auto stuff here in the u.k. I find the pedals in the hire cars too close together and it just becomes a stressful experience--for everybody in the vicinity.If you see someone on one of those short pull ons waitng to join the main road is it common practice to move over if safe to do so and give them room to get on.

More good stuff, well done both.
Techno has a steady hand with the camera.
Not too sure about both hands off the wheel when gesticulating though.
Not easy to present, teach and drive.
Presentation improving all the time.
Keep it up.
