I have spent all my adult life saying 'Can I have a lift, I am sorry I can't drive. Would you like some money for petrol?' As of a few weeks ago I no longer have to say that. I passed my driving test and now am in possession of a full drivers license with my name on it. I am proud.
I haven't done much independent driving yet though. I drove about 1 minute to turn the car around and also moved the car in a car park. I am proud. I need to go out for a proper drive. I also need to re-train the way I think. I can drive without supervision. Eventually I will be able to go out on my own. I am going to take it slowly but the skill is there.
After Christmas I will book a Pass plus lesson in order to do some more driving skills, eg Motorway driving.
I am looking forward to many happy and safe years of driving.
