You're lucky you can go on highways with your permit. Mine doesn't allow it. But i still managed to find an empty street and hit 65


Oh! And for those who wrote the written test what was your score?? I got 38/40. 18/20 on general rules, and 20/20 on signs

You know what was hilarious when i was taking the test? Well I wrote the test in like 11 minutes, and you see all the older people sitting there for 45 minutes and then the lady that works there says "Sorry, you got too many wrong, you'll have to come back." I saw about 6 people fail while i was writing my test. It's sooo easy, you can get 4 wrong on each section.
And another thing, this guy beside me had a bluetooth headset to his phone and he was cheating on his test, i found that pretty funny.

Believe though you will get the benefits from it later, I have only just started driving, due to owning a motorbike for most of my twenties, and the insurance was still quoting me 1400 and that was for a 1.4 VW Polo....lol.....

I was lucky got my missus to insure it in her name, for a year, then transfer it to over another insurance company which accepts named drivers as having the no claims as well, renewing next month, and the cheapest quote I have got was 600 fully comp.

I don't have insurance I'm a rebel. lol.
I don't think you need the insurance in your name when you have a G1 (learning permit). As long as it's insured in your passenger's name.

Yes, when ever YOU drive, you need insurance to cover you. If your caught with out it, you can possible get your car impounded, and drives license takedn away for 3 years.

It works different over here to the states rather then insuring the person for all vehicles you have to be insured for every individual vehicle, when we are fully comprehensively insured for one car, it will cover you to drive other cars third party only.
