FINALLY got my license!!

Post  Constance on Wed Mar 30, 2011 7:57 pm

I finally got my license today!! I failed the first time(rolling stops, anyone?), and I've gone back a ton of times to reschedule, but for some reason or other, I haven't been able to take it... But I did today, and I passed! *Bounces happily*

Really, I'm just relieved it's over. It was turning into a ritual. Or a hobby--worst hobby EVER.

And even more awesome, my picture is actually good. Cool

Congratulations! Is this your licence to drive by yourself? I've been trying to get mine for months, but I just can't do it! Evil or Very Mad

Yep! I can drive by myself, in my own car... Oh, wait, I don't have a car. Curses. Shocked

Understandable. I hope you get it soon!

WOOHOO!! That's so EXCITING! And here I am struggling to get all the papers I need to get a permit. Sad Hopefully I'll be doing that next month. Congrats!!

Aw... I remember getting my permit. All those papers and such was chaotic. Terrible. But once it's over with, it's not bad... until six months later when you have to get your license. Razz

Haha! How encouraging. xD I just feel like I'm so late to do this! All the jr. high kids I know are getting theirs (well, they aren't junior high anymore...but it feels like yesterday they were) and I feel so...LATE!

My dad's a bit of a procrastinator, can you tell?

Hehe. Two of my best friends haven't gotten theirs yet, and one of 'em is six months older than me. So don't feel late! Well, feel late. But only if you pass your 18th birthday without getting your license. Very Happy

LOL! I feel a tiny bit better. Just a tiny bit. xP But all I can think every time I see the car is "I should be driving that thing!!!" My brother was 18. I've warned both my parents I don't intend to wait half as long as he did.

Congrats, WriteSpinner! Let's hope you can get a car soon! Smile

I took my test with my instructor, so I knew that if I tried a rolling stop he'd slam on the brakes and dock me. He scared me really bad the first time he did it. pale He did dock me for speeding in a residential zone, though, because I wasn't aware I was still in a residential zone.

@Lizzy -- I do not envy you your permit test--that was the hardest part for me. I got insurance questions. No

@Renee Ohhh boy. Thanks for the encouragement. Razz I'm already pretty nervous about making sure I study all the right things.

On my permit test, I got 8 questions wrong. Any more and I woulda failed it. Razz

Renee, what do you mean "he would have slammed on the brakes"? I'm highly confused. Question

And what car? I'm going to Korea Laughing

It was a specially made instruction vehicle, so there was a brake in the passenger's seat. As for a car...I got a stick-shift Hyunadai Accent a couple years ago, and I love it. Hyundai is a South Korean company. Wink

@WriteSpinner 8 wrong?? Wow! My brother said his permit test only had 10 questions, so 8 wrong would have been a total fail. (Maybe I'm remembering this wrong.... O.O) He said it was easy, but he said trig was easy too. xP

Oooh, and South or North Korea?? I'm going to South Korea one day! Very Happy

Lol Renee. Must means it's a way better car company, then. Razz

Yeah, the lady said something about the questions keep coming until it decided I knew enough... Or something. It was weird. O.o

...I'm sorry, but what is wrong with him, to say trig is easy?

South, Lizzy! You and I should meet up over there. I'll probably be dying for some English-speakng company. Hehehe Smile

Yeah, our permit test has a total of 24 questions, and as soon as you get 16 right, the test is over. I failed twice...heh. Third time's a charm, right? I've had my non-restriction license for almost a year now(I can bring friends along...legally Laughing). Driving used to be terrifying to me, because I started learning on a manual, and it lurched forward and died on my first try in the car. But now I love it--manual is fun. Very Happy

Oh, that might've been the one the DPS office I went to was using!
I've never driven a manual. Mom keeps saying she wants me to just so I know how, but no one we know owns one. Razz

Wow! That is weird. I hope I don't get some question-happy lady. ^^

I have no idea what's wrong with him! LOL. He's welcome to do my trig homework. xP

Oooh yay! You can be my tour guide because you'll probably get there first. Very Happy

:O 24 questions!?! Uh oh. I'm starting to be afraid maybe I remembered my brother's story wrong. I guess I've been right to study as much as possible. Sad

What an upsetting beginning! LOL Yeah the most I've done is pulled the car into the garage. I was really nervous because our driveway slopes down and the moment I had to release the brake I was afraid I'd roll backwards before I could hit the gas pedal, hehe. ^^

If I had trig homework, I'd let him have ALL of it.
Probably, unless you plan on going this summer. Razz I'd be happy to be tour guide. You'll get the best tour of a street block one could ever get! And if you're lucky, maybe we'll even tour a park. Wink

LOL! Noo...I totally wish I could afford this summer! But that won't happen. It won't be for a while! Hopefully you'll know more than a block or a park by the time I get there! LOLOL

Well, if you insist, I suppose I'll go beyond my own block and explore, just so I can give a proper tour once you get there. But it'll be terribly hard. You'll have to treat me to food at least once for my efforts. Razz
