At that time, getting some solo drives was definitely worth it - it taught me some self-confidence on one hand as well as some caution on the other. If I hadn't had that experience I am not sure, for instance, that I would have driven (solo) on the Nurburgring on my Euro Delivery...
Last Octoberfest at Watkins Glen first time in the rain, I would not have taken a solo drive under any circumstance... I definitely appreciate the benefits of instruction and have had only positive experiences so far.
