Lo and Behold

Yep, I finally passed my driving test.

Full Victoria Drivers License

I was a nervous wreck on test day. When I met up with my driving instructor (I used her car during the test, and she came along as well), Gayle, I had to run back home twice because I've forgotten to bring extra cash for the test, and also forgotten my passport and proof of address. By the time I got back to the car, I was already sweating, even though it was a cold and crisp day.

In retrospect, I was really glad to have Gayle with me the whole time, even though she couldn't help or talk to me during the test. Thank God for a gentle lady examiner too, who gave me very clear instructions without having to bark them out. The only critical error I made was when I completed the test and headed back to Vicroads. By then, the examiner decided to let me off the hook.

So yep, I'm now a holder of a full Victorian driver's license. No more L-lesen for me. Whee!

Now, more importantly, what car shall I get?

Eric:
Thanks :) He should know the results by the end of the week.

Cheryl:
Just turn your head more often. Even if you're not technically looking at the mirror, it'd look like you did :P

Leyenda:
Oh it's on! :D

Jemima:
Not a problem, my dear ;)

Mayni:
I'd take a Hummer anytime! Prius are wussy. HAHAHAHA

Geekchic:
Expensive lar, European cars :(

Mummy:
I wanted a Micra for a long time, but Tim hated it. I stopped looking out for it for a while, and in the end, I realised it wasn't all that after all. Hang on, don't you have a Micra? :P

Timodee:
Excuse Mister? I need YOUR approval??????????????????????????????? *AHEM*
