IO: I'm driving now, better get off the roads

It's official I'm driving now, I got my driver license a few days ago, after taking over a year to learn how to drive. ( I have car anxiety).

I went in and took my test the day after my birthday this month. I had a free test and thought heck why not take it I fail I know what to work on. So I just went in and took the test, prepared to fail and bam! I got my license I was like what?!I kept asking the instructor, you sure I passed? and he goes " Yes, minus hitting a curve, you did great".

So it's official I'm driving on my own now, only thing I can't do well is park and back out of my drive way, which I always hit the curve. But I'm driving now and facing my car anxiety, it's strange for me, but I also love it cause I go wherever want, when I want and oh I learned I have road rage, I tend to yell when people tick me off, so stay off the roads, if I'm angry.

Now to just concur that highway driving, and I can do a road trip.

Well done, it's a scary test.
You do know that now the lazyness begins. Why walk anywhere when you can drive?

Congratulations! I take the test in a couple weeks, my birthday is Feb. 21st. I'm kinda nervous about it but I also can't wait for the same reason that you can go anywhere! I will probably hang out with my friends although I'll be the only one in my grade who has a license. Anyway enough about me, it's all to you floweravalanche!

Thank yas!

Good luck to you guys! Theedgeu2 and Angel-Of-Harlem.

It does give lots of freedom, but lot's of responsibility as well. I'm 22 and just got license, for many reasons, one being maturity and being responsible.

I usually just drive over to a friends, or the store, or when I get bored or upset I just drive around for a bit, than come back. But, each time I go driving, I drive further and further away and become more confident and adventuress.

I'm getting better with my parking and backing out now, which is good. Now to just get a hang of that darn high way! and I'll be good. I did drive it the other night, but the whole times, I was freakin out.
