I passed, I passed!! :D  
 YAY! I can drive like a big person now! Haha

At 1pm today I went into Service BC and waited in the long, agonizing line of the DMV. A lady at one of the front booths called me over once I had painstakingly crawled to the front of the line and asked how I was. I answered honestly with a nervous laugh that I was anxious and here to take my drivers' test. She smiled and asked if I had an appointment which I agreed and said it was at 1pm. She smiled and said I'd do fine then asked for my two pieces of identification. The process was tedious as usual but once finished, she asked me to kindly sit down and wait for my instructor.

The nerves were rising as I pictured how my test would go. But I didn't have long to work myself as my instructor, a man named Randy, arrived with a rather large and friendly smile. 

"Such a great day for a driving test," He said with his smile still pasted to his face then introduced himself with a handshake.

We said our goodbyes to my father, who would wait patiently at his chair for roughly half an hour, then we were off. He calmly instructed me to enter my vehicle and turn the blinkers on left and right then show him my brake lights. So far so good.

Then my heart froze as he asked me to show him my hand signals. I scoured my mind for that tiny piece of knowledge; had I seriously forgotten? Would this be my downfall? But as quickly as I paused I calmly moved my left arm in the appropriate positions, effectively showing Randy my knowledge.

His smile grew larger and he chuckled, " Great, you passed the hardest part of the exam."

I was relieved by what he said and how friendly the man presented himself.

....and the rest of the test went fairly smoothly. I could continue on in storybook fashion but I'm getting kinda lazy...haha
I'm just so glad this part of the 'journey' is over and I can FINALLY drive by myself at least. Two more years then I'll be a fully licensed driver. :)

TOLD YOU IT WASN'T SO HARD. :DDD how'd you do on the parking part? i thought that was pretty easy...

oddly, my guy didn't ask me to go on the highway. O_o and he wasn't all smiley either... -_-

Huh, well my guy was super super nice and he didn't ask me to back into a parking stall. Parking on the hills was a breeze and we didn't even go near a highway either. It was a piece of cake!
