Intensive driving tuition in Nottingham UK.

Daughter passed her theory driving test some time ago but failed the practical. Having had more tuition recently she has another practical test in a few weeks with the complication that her theory test runs out very shortly after. If she fails this practical test she will have to start again from the begining by retaking her theory again. Can anyone recommend a driving instructor in the Nottingham area who will be able to offer a short and intensive course to enable her to pass her practical?

Intensive driving course = stupid idea?

I have to take two weeks off work in the next two months, and thought it would be a great idea to learn to drive. I've heard of 'intensive courses', which would theorically let you pass the driving test after 40+ hours -- in more or less 7 days. But! I'm not sure this is a great idea...

Evasive driving near Atlanta

While in law school, my wife did a drive-along with the police. During the night, there was a high speed chase. She still talks about how thrilling it was. Is there someplace within a couple of hours of Atlanta where she could take an evasive driving class? I've found racetrack/NASCAR experiences, but that's not really what I'm looking for.

Driving around Detroit, MI

I have business in the Bloomfield Hills suburb of Detroit in a couple of weeks. Google Maps gives me two routes from the airport car rental to my destination with roughly the same travel time and a third that appears slightly longer. Which is best in terms of ease of navigation for a solo driving Detroit area newb, safe road conditions (especially if it snows), and likelihood that the travel time is accurate (i.e. not prone to massive unexpected delays)?

Can you live in the Bay Area without driving?

Assuming you don't drive due to poor vision (so you can't rent a Zipcar) is it feasible to live in the Bay Area and have a decent life, with the ability to get around, go to work, and socialize? With respect to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, what areas would be best, and what parts would be too inconvenient or time-consuming to get by without driving?

Must-See Scenic Drives and Attractions Driving West from Cincinnati to Seattle

What are some must-see scenic drives and attractions to be found on a one-way roadtrip West from Cincinnati, OH to Seattle, WA. Mid-40s opposite-sex couple who love photography, don't like hiking very much but appreciate a good hot spring, and are what you would call "foodies". We're thinking about the Badlands and Black Hills, but what else? Also, what stretches of road can we avoid to stave off boredom, and where should we drive instead of them? We can go a bit out of our way, but would like to be back at our jobs within a week.

Advice for a nervous and inexperienced adult driver?

I'm 23 years old and I can count on one hand the number of times I've been behind the wheel of a car. I've been fortunate enough to live my whole life in a city with really good public transportation (Portland) and I have my learner's permit, but I'm not at a point in my life where not being able to drive is becoming a problem. What's the best way to start solving this problem? I don't have easy access to a car to practice - is signing up for a class worth it? What are some things to look for in a driving class?
