But you won't find me complaining.
So I've got my provisional license, which is not unlike a driver's permit. And you know the drill - I can only drive with another adult in the vehicle and can't drive on the motorway (dumb rule). And I'm practicing a lot, like I used to do when I was 14 & 15, working my way up to golden 16. And I have to take a theory test. In preparation I had to read a book that is about 2" thick, with close to 1,000 practice test questions. And then I have to take a practical test, which is 45 minutes long and during that test I have to prove that I have safe control of the vehicle at all times and will include such things as: hill starts, downhill starts, driving through bends, driving in town, driving in the country, reverse turns...and, well you get the picture.
The good news is this: I used to be terrified of driving (imagine shifting with your left hand when you're used to using your right...feels strange). And now I'm actually excited about it. I still hate driving in town - you should see the size of the roads here! I still have a hard time guaging whether or not I have room to clear a car passing me and kind of want to shut my eyes and just let them go past and assess the damage later! But I'm sure, just like with my new job, it'll feel like second nature in no time at all.
