I learnt on my own in Bombay, no help provided. All I learnt from a friend was when you press the accelerator, when you use the clutch, brake etc, and basically when you change the gears.
I observed my dad & uncles drive the cars we had in our family.
When I had gone to take a test 1989 February. My friends who had taken the driving test had told me that I will be asked certain questions from the BMV Act, (Bombay motor vehicles act ), now renamed as the CMV central motor vehicles act or something.
I had to mug three pages of the rule book. On the test day, the RTO officer (proper 3 star officer) took my test, asked me to take the car out of the RTO Mumbai compound and take a test right upto Wellingdon Club. He asked me to stop, overtake and reverse into a parking area. Then he asked me to stop midway through the test and asked me questions from the sections of the Bombay Motor Vehicles act. I replied correctly to all but one of the eight questions.
I got my licence.
Those moments were nail biting moments for me. Great fun when I got my licence.

Am still 17 so haven' had any encounters with a driving school yet. But i learnt most of the driving from playing Gran Turismo on the playstation. And with the games becoming more and more realistic, i think this is the way to go. And don't they have simulators at certain driving schools?
