I passed my theory test today! *HooRay*

So now I'll be allowed to spend another £20.00 to take the driving test.

I definitely hate driving a stick shift. It feels archaic and not all, cool race driver-like. I shall commence my moaning, groaning and wrathful bitching until Husband gives me control of the Saab, which is a blissful automatic.

I'm stuck with this for now

Learning to drive a stick was the only good thing I got out of my first boyfriend.

Mormon bastard.

learning...yes I agree learning to drive one is imperitive. But on everyday application I like the ease of a Automatic. With kids throwing tantrums, crazy plumber's vans cutting you off and...never quite getting used to driving on the wrong side of the car on the wrong side of the road, the distraction of "Am I in fourth???" is too much to cope with.

I want an easy life. What a bitch eh?

I enjoy driving a stick ...beware of downshifting at high rates of speed! I ripped my clutch right out doing that...DOH!

You're taking a driving test? You're 33. What happened.

Don't get me wrong. I think it's great. My wife didn't take the test until she was 28. Her first husband drove her ass everywhere.

Well good luck.

I have a driver's lisence for the USA, but I've not needed a UK one until now.

We used to live in Edinburgh and the bus systems are fantastic. Plus, UK drivers are completely insane! the worst crazy ass drivers I've ever seen; and I used to drive through Boston Mass. every day.

My USA one isn't valid here as I'm a resident and have been for over 12 months, so I gotta go through the same old crap again.
