Passed, finally!

Hi all,

I passed my test yesterday morning - 8 tests and 13 years after first getting my provisional licence!

The difference this time was definately just more confidence. I didn't know that I'd pass the test but knowing I really could drive safely (not just faking it for the test) made the nerves so much more manageable. I felt very calm throughout, even during the dreaded parallel park, which I messed up at first but managed to stop the car, take a deep breath, apologise and start again - doing it perfectly! It all went really well and the instructor was lovely, despite being the same one who shouted at me five years ago when I drove onto tram lines!

Anyway, it went very smoothly. I got 5 minors - three for looking in the mirror whilst, and not before, signalling - one for the 1st parallel park attempt and one for being a bit hasty with the footbrake at a red light!

It actually felt a bit anti-climactic in the end, so much less of a big deal than previous tests, but it was a brilliant feeling to know I won't have to do it again!

I am very relieved and very happy. I haven't posted on the forum much but have lurked a lot in the the last four months and it's been great to hear other people's stories. It been good to know I wasn't on my own!

So anyway, I rushed home to drive my wee Rover Metro - and the starter motor went! Should be on the road by the weekend.

Phew!
