Driving. Doesn't it sound fun? Well, tbh, it just seems a bit scary for my liking. This week, I finally got my driver's license, just to get it outta the way, since the rules are gonna change soon up here.
So yeah, we have to do a written test to get our license, which I was probably too laidback for, to start with at least. I just started off with doing online tests and stuff, not even knowing what I was doing. But then eventually, my brother gave me the book with all the road rules and stuff in it, telling me to read over it and study. So for about a week or two, I did, even though when I was it was pretty hard to concentrate. Usually it was on the way to school, when the radio was on, or my brother's music, and then he would sing along to whatever was on. Soo yeah, after reading through most of it, I resorted back to the online tests, pretty much getting 29 or 30 out of 30 questions correct. So then I felt confident and asked my mum if I could go in and do the real test, which is sorta on the spur of the moment. So, about the night before, we got everything sorted about what we had to take in and such. Since it was on a Thursday, and I have my percussion lessons on Thursdays, I was gonna be late for it.
So after school Thursday, my mum got my brother and I from school, and we drove to...umm...the place where we had to go? But yeah, got there at about 1:30, and we like waited around, more than expected, I could've sworn we were waiting at Medicare. So until about 2:00, it was our turn to be served, and I had to fill out heaps of paperwork, having to write my horrendous signature like, billions of times. That took about 15 minutes, until I finally sat down and took the test. To my surprise, the questions were basically the same as on the online one, so I pretty much breezed through it. Handed in the test, waiting another 10 minutes. During that time, my brother was sooo encouraging, pretty much saying I was gonna fail, but that's probably cause he was jealous he failed his first try. But anyway, found out I passed with flying colours, except I just got one question wrong. I was soo ecstatic, although I didn't really show that I was, but oh well, I showed my brother up, who was determined I would fail. But yeah, now I'm a learner, but now for the worst part; actually learning to drive. Nah actually, I'm kinda looking forward to driving now, I just seem very excited about it now.
Well there we go, all that trouble for a driver's license. Now for the next five years or so I'll have to wait to get my open license, but, I'm sure it'll all be okay.
