    Been taking driving lessons, which are brilliant - I take them in two-hour slots, but I've noticed that I always get a pretty wet back every time I drive.

    I've tried shifting my position a couple of times, but the end result is the same. However, I've never experienced this as a passenger, even on long journeys. Am I just sitting incorrectly? Am I too tense? Is it the design and fabric of the seats (Corsa)? What is it?? :confused:

    You're probably sweating because you're concerntrating.

    Dont worry about it.
    Its just what driving lessons do to you sometimes :D
    They make you sweat so much you stick to the seats :p

    Once you drive your own car or your parants car with no driving instructer you will be fine and wont sweat.

    I remember having the Air con turned on cold in one lesson but it felt like i was being blasted with hot air.
    Its just a Psycological thing :)

    Edit: I was also reasonably relaxed most of the time aswell, we apart for the one time i didnt go to the toilet before hand :o
    No that is when you sweat beeds of sweat and just pray it finishes quick so you can get to a toilet

    Sit back, relax.
    Don't think, don't sweat it.
    Forget it.
    Can't hate me like I do.
    I hate, I know me.
    I hate, I know me better.

    Open the window or put the AC on :rolleyes:

    You're sweating because you're not getting enough air to your back, try relaxing a bit more. Try putting the chair back a notch, see if that helps.

    -instructor - go right around the round about
    -me- what are you sure
    -instructor- yep just go right around the roundabout
    -me- ok then!

    i was only following instructions, and it was a small roundabout no one hardly ever uses anyway :o

    Do you really think I didn't think of that? :) Opening the window/air con doesn't help that much really.

    EDIT: Moreover, I said that it never happens to me as a passenger. Guess the effects of nerves are greater than I thought...

    I never really sweat much at all, its only in lessons I do, it will stop as you get more confident in the car.
