Very good  Wink  Good luck with the theory.  In my day it was a couple of questions after the practical.  I have had a go on those practise DVD's when my husband was pretending he was going to learn to drive and I didn't know half of the questions.  Or at least I answered as I would in real life not in theory.


I learnt how to drive on Jersey.

Q: What is the top speed limit?
A: 40 mph

Q: And on dual carriage ways?
A: There are none.

It's now 50 multiple choice questions and then hazard perception I think. And you have to pass it before you can sit the practical. EEK!

Yikes!! I'm glad I took my test back in 198whenever, when all you had to do was avoid an old lady in the road and tell the instructor what a no entry sign meant.

I know. I'm beginning to wish I took my test when I turned 17 like most people do, as they increased the amount of questions from about 30 to 50 recently.  Oops!

I lived in the US for 4 years.  Because I was staying there, I had to get a US license & a car (of course!).  So, I got this new car - manual, naturally - with the steering wheel and gear stick on the wrong side.  And went down to take my test. 

I had already passed the TEN multiple choice randomly selected question theory test.  Even though the questions were different for everyone in the room, I did get the impression that some people were trying to copy.  I can't think why - the questions were somewhat simple - what do you do if you miss your turning on the freeway?  a) Reverse.  b) Turn round....

So, I'm at the test station with a new car which I had been driving for 24 hours, with the steering wheel on the wrong side, pretty nervous.  And in comes the examiner - complete with holstered pistol. Shocked

Now, I'm no longer nervous; but petrified.  I mean, what happens if you don't pass - do they shoot you?

The test lasted no more than 15 minutes.  I recall, I made three or four driving errors.  But this was obviously accepable in Boston because I passed.

So good luck with your test.  And remember, because this is the UK, the instructor won't be carrying a gun.  And the worst that can happen is that you have to take the test again (but I'm sure that you'll pass).

Hopefully not while you're driving - you'd crash into a tree.

New job starts on Monday  Yay!!!  After almost 8 weeks out of work, I was going quite mad.  Also, hanging out with friends and playing Wii Fit, and learning that yes indeed, I am out of shape (ok perhaps I did not smile about that, but it was no surprise since I had trouble lifting the tv remote the other day  Smiley.

Cheers,
Woody
