It's been a long time coming, but I finally passed the written test (for the driver's licence), and no wrong answers at that! I took the first
written in the early 90s and passed with no wrong answers at that time, as well (I passed on the first try). I let minor issues get the better of me
(I was a dumb teenager), and I never followed through with taking the driving test. I came to wholeheartedly regret that decision.
During the 2000s I was interested in driving once again, but never put forth a full effort in studying for the test, much less taking the written
test. Late last year, I took the written without fully studying the handbook (I skimmed it), and got 8 answers wrong out of an acceptable 6 answers
wrong. (I actually got 7 answers wrong. Why? The handbook says so.) I decided after that, that if I wanted to pass the test, I had to put my back into
it, and really study for it. I read the handbook about twice, and, today, went over my written test from last year. When I went over it today, I
realized that the answers to the questions were, for the most part, common sense. That thought instilled a lot of confidence within me, and made me
less nervous for the test I was to take today.
And so, I passed! I realize that a lot of people might not care, and that it might just seem like a boring anecdote to most, but I've been wanting to
get my licence for a while now, and this event is a major milestone for me. Has anybody had a major milestone like this, that was perhaps no big deal
for the average person?
