Congrats on passing your test, and welcome to the forum!

I understand your problem.

Its not possible to raise the C3 drivers seat while sat on it. (well on the early shape model C3 at least)

Lifting the lever while sat on the seat lowers the seat height. Getting out of the car and lifting the lever raises the seat (quickly).

On a right hand drive car, sat in the drivers seat, its the lever on the right of the seat that adjusts the seat height.
