I finally got my Driver’s License one week before school started! I actually gotten my learner’s just last May and I haven’t had any time to practice driving, so I was nervous about whether I would be able to operate a vehicle without crashing into something :S
I was actually really torn between which driving school to choose from: AMA, or not? AMA is very thorough in their lessons but can be costly, whereas if I chose another driving school, my chances of passing would be greater, as well as the cost would be more reasonable. In the end, I just chose a driving school that’s not AMA. My driving instructor, also known as SeeFu, is really funny and I’m glad I chose him as my driving instructor. He likes to call people, “Bad boy,” or “Bad girl”.
First, I had a weekend to do TV classes— they were really long and kinda boring.. but still very necessary. After that, I had 5 days to drive with him, 2 hours each day… and then testing right after my lesson on the last day. I was really nervous since I was pretty sure I would fail. I had friends who failed the test on their first try so I didn’t really get my hopes up. Also, our family only has one car and dad is always working so I have no one to teach me how to drive outside of classtime. I learn by repetition so I was scared I would forget my skills everyday. As the testing date approached, I got more and more nervous… I really wanted to pass the test on my first try… the cost of the test is really expensive! I couldn’t sleep the night before the test!!! T_T
Finally, the day of the test! My seefu had to take some time to calm me down prior to it because I was probably hyperventilating. Basically I was more nervous than him, even though he kept reassuring me that he’s sure I will pass. Everyday my seefu took me along the road where I’m most likely gonna be tested on, so I would remember all the signs and sneaky spots. I never messed up my parallel parking.. until the examination! AHH! Also for the examination route, we only gotten halfway before she told me to head back to the registry. At that point, I was like @_@ I FAILED otherwise she would’ve gone the entire route! …. Turns out….
She was in a hurry to test another student so she cut the route and passed me! ^_^
Now the problem is: I need a car to drive… people are recommending me to either choose a Honda Civic or Corolla… Hmm… Lots of money there again >.<
