Woo Hoo!

Ok, today gets a very quick post before I dive back into blogging about the usual stuff, because I am too excited not to share...

I passed my driving test!

I know 28 is quite late to start driving, but for years I had no desire to learn, and then I'd got pretty comfortable getting around using public transport. But it was about time I got on with it, so I did, and this morning I passed my test.

I was shaking like a leaf, and so not expecting to pass, and I'm still on a bit of a high *laughs*

I bought a car a little while ago, so I could practice driving under the supervision of cunning boyfriend, and now I can burn those L plates and roam around under my own steam.

Watch out those of you in the UK, I might pop round for a cuppa now that I can ;)


  1. Yay! I'm going for my driving exam next week. I only got around to learning because there's NO reliable public transport in my new neck of the woods.

    Here's to us! By the way, I'm 27 so I'm also an "oldie" like you.

  2. Congratulations! Age does not count here. You did it! :-)

  3. big congrats! i'm sooo happy for you :)

  4. WOW well done, that is so amazing. I didn't learn to drive until late either. It feels weird doesn't it? You are going feel so FREE!

  5. Congratulations! I'm one of those that started learning at 16... but then just never continued. Maybe one day I'll have the desire to learn again on the other side of the road.

  6. HOORAY! :D I was a late-bloomer as a driver, too---I learned as a teenager, failed one road test, moved to a city for a few years and didn't need to drive...

    But I did manage to pass the test (and hooboy, do I remember that shaking-like-a-leaf-high feeling after doing so!) a few years ago. I still don't drive very much! But it's good to know how.

    Also, I completely adore your car.

  7. Woot Congrats! It's funny because I realized earlier this year that I have been driving for 10 years. I got my licence in March of 2002. Seriously where did the time go!

  8. Fabulous! Congratulations!!!!!! I took my test at about 28 too.

    Any time you fancy a trip to W Sussex, just let me know :)


  9. Congrats! I'm sure that you did very well on your test, you cannot be half as bad as I am at driving! Drive safely and have loads of fun!

  10. Congrats!!!! I didn't drive until I was over 21 yo. I, like you, felt no need :)

  11. Awesome job! Well done! I've been driving since I was 17, but so many of my friends are now starting to learn. It's such a useful skill to have.


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
