Getting a provisional license
Look at that car. Yes, folks that was our old car and now we have an old Astra! This was the car Matthew had before I came along and talked him into selling because we didn't drive it that often and it was expensive and always breaking down. It's a honey of a car. I wonder what it would be like learning how to drive on TT vs the Astra. At least they are both blue! The Astra was a great value for money 350 pounds and its taken us all over the UK and still going strong. I guess it's for the best. I would have felt really bad if I had crashed the TT!
I was having a look at what I am going to have to do to get a drivers licenses here in the UK. I knew I was going to have to take a theory test, or the written test as we call it in MN. I found out that to take it I have to have a provisional license and it cost 50 pounds to get it! Yikes. I wonder how much it's going to cost in total to get my license? It will be good to have a UK license. A chance to start over with a new driving record. Not that I had a bad record in MN. I never had an accident and only had one speeding ticket from back in 1996. I was going 40 in a 35.
I did like to get parking tickets and never paying them.....Oh the joys of going to the government center and pleading my case. Trying to get my fines lowered, but that's a story for another day.
