Nice car mate congrats on your licence.

im 18 now... the UK driving test sucks. its a terrible test... and its far too expensive too... 55 a test, and over 20 a lesson. plus another 22 for the theory test. need to get another test booked... my cars getting lonely sitting outside now...

Theory?
All you have to keep in mind is
1> Two objects can not coexist in the same space at the same time.
Although motorists all over the world try to disprove that.
2> Braking distance is proporinal to how far around you have turned your head.
Babes on the sidewalk are a real hazard.
3> Objects in the mirror are closer than they look.
Including that cop that's been behind you for the last 5 miles.
4> Speaking of cops. They can find the damnest places to hide something as big as a car.
Must have been real good at hide and seek.
5> How fast it goes has nothing to do with how much it costs. Even Lance can get a bicycle to 70MPH.
Refer back to item 4.

That's all in fun people. I'll post them as I think of them. Seti's rules of the road.

Went for the first drive today. On my way home from school. Did 60 on the highway for my first drive. Its actually pretty simple. I was surprised, how easy it was driving at highspeeds.

And on top of it all, I made it out alive!
