Woman got out of the car and asked him to wait, 20 minutes later she came back got in the car thanked him and said drive back to the test centre, which he did. En route she said he was so kind to have waited whilst she went to book her wedding, he shocked, but hey whatever, congratulated her and asked when the wedding was, reply 'Oh I don't know yet I haven't found a husband'

When they got back to the test place she told him he'd passed handed him the slip, it was covered in doodled love hearts!

He still craps himself when he has to drive past the place!

Well I guess thats a matter of opinion based on his 'test' and based on driving today I'd be shocked if they do now!

Well I had my driving test today and it was nothing at all like I expected. All I had to do was drive round the block with an odd left or right turn, go through a school zone, do a parallel park (with only 1 car in the entire street so if I screwed that up I would never drive again!) and then go back to the test centre. Most of the 10 minutes was spent talking to the examiner about what our dream cars were. I passed. Only downer of the morning was dealing with the idiots in the BMV who sent me off to my bank to get another bank statement as they needed 2 forms of id with address on as they are introducing new secure id driving licences. Then I gave them all my stuff and I was handed the letter from the SSA back (the one saying I am not eligible for a SSN) without her looking at it and she then asks for my SSN! I got a little printout showing me what my photo will be and what the details on my licence will be. I should get it in the mail in the next week or so. (They have to verify my id, visa etc with DHS)
I am pleased I passed as the insurance company should reduce our premiums now. Although may not make much of a difference after husband crashed the car last week!
