If it is something that you can feel through the steering wheel, and it either gets worse as you pick up speed or kicks in regularly around the same speed, then your front wheels are probably out of balance. Maybe you had new tire or tires put on and they weren't balanced by whoever put the new tires on. Take it to Pep Boys or a tire dealership and ask them to balance the front wheels; it's not that expensive, and it's cheaper than my other idea, which is your motor mounts are shot or, even worse, your flywheel is out of balance. But, in my experience, it's always been the wheels out of balance. Phil

Some driving schools offer off-road car control courses which can be taken when 15 but on road driving lessons cannot be taken until you are 17 and have received your provisional driving licence.

If a car is driving along a road, (on its correct side of the road for the country) then the side nearest the curb (sidewalk)/edge of the road is called the "near side". By implication, the side nearest the center of the road is then referred to as the "offside". Normally the side on which the driver sits will be the "offside" of the car. However, if the car is left hand drive and driving in a country that drives on the left, then the driver will be on the "near side" while driving in that country.

It's generally ILLEGAL to pass on the right at all, however this is usually not enforced. It is TOTALLY ILLEGAL to do so by driving off the road- your car is supposed to stay on the road at all times.
