well to get into it, usually people open the garage door.. good effort, maybe next time champ.
Usually, the first lesson in Driver's Ed is operating the brakes. So much for home-schooling!
so you're saying you drove twenty miles without knowing of the existence of breaks? where do you live, because in my country, if you don't stop for lights, stop signs, little old ladies, and garage doors, you don't get your license... :/
777777771- How can one not see a garage door?! Please explain that to me! The LOGICAL explanation of this scenario is that OP was unaware of the pedals and where they are. Alot of first time drivers make that mistake. And, not to mention, OP had to have known the garage door was there! It is OPs step-mothers house. I'm sure OP has been there many times before! They are aware of the garage door! If one cannot, truly, see a garage door, there are some severe problems that need to be taken care of! Please, for the love of God, read the comments you are replying to! You sound so silly!
Guessing that, rather than being "unaware" of the brakes, this was a case that, unfamiliar with the peddles, OP hit the gas instead of the brake. Car goes flying forward, you slam down even harder what you believe to be the brake. Easily done when you're unfamiliar with peddle positions, though it does highlight how worthwhile it is to learn through a driving school with dual controls should it ever come to that.
I never had that problem, but I lost the gas before in driving school. I have no idea where it went, my foot just hit the floor. Than a couple seconds later it was back, right where I was checking. Also in drivers school, I got my foot caught in that wire that leads to the passenger break when I was trying to go for the break pedal.
