Ah, the Joys of Driving!!
Following up to a post about failing my driving test, I thought I would continue with how I did eventually pass!!
So, after failing first time, I was gutted but booked it again for the 12th September, which was the earliest I could get. However, my wonderful driving instructor was able to find me a cancellation and so two days after I found out about this I began my second driving test!! And boy, I was more nervous this time than I was first time!! It was a Saturday, so I knew the roads would be busy but the examiner took me around the back roads so that we did not get stuck in traffic. I thought I was driving pretty well, despite the nerves, until I went to turn into a junction as a car was coming out and almost his the bonnet!! I really thought that this would fail me! Ugh! I kept forgetting where I was meant to go for the independant drive but I successfully managed a straight reverse round a bend which I was chuffed with!!
Getting back to the test centre, I concentrated so hard so that I did not make any mistakes, (which is what I failed on the first time!) and saw my instructor waitng there for me, looking a bit worried!
I actually did not have a clue what the examiner was going to say but eventually he told me, I HAD PASSED! And with only three minors!! I cant tell you how relieved I was, not because I had passed but because I would never have to take another driving test again!! Its probably the worst nerves I have ever had for anything!
Thank you to my marvellous man, Dean, for trusting me with his car, which he has only been driving for a year! I promise not to "bin" it, to look after it as much as I can, and to keep it the way you left it. Except for the pink de-mister, the Smurfette hanging off the indicator, my choice of cds to play, and the feminine touches I leave behind!!
