Thanks pal.. I was convinced I'd pass it maybe on the 2nd go but never thought I'd do it first time round. Absolutely delighted

Now you get to stick the big N plates up on your car. Do people actually do that? I dont' think I've seen one car with them yet.

I put them up already. . Doesn't bother me really. Probably will when the novelty of passing my test has worn off though :lol:

Fair play anyway. I found the stress of being judged on my driving made me a far worse driver in the test than I actually was. Had to go a 2nd time before passing.

Thanks lads!

Yeah my first time! I'm only driving my own car since February so I'm absolutely shocked! Thought my instructor was a mad man telling me to go for it but I'm glad he did now

when did you begin learning to drive Zook? I'm on my 5th lesson and the thoughts of actually being able to properly drive feels a very long way off!!

My first lesson was in November last year.. I had about 3 before Christmas then didn't really do many until I was insured in my car in February. .

Are you driving your own car? That's when I really started to learn properly. .

nope not yet anyway, since I am back living with my folks I will try to get insured on my Mums car for the time being but I am still a way off being able to go out without the dual control car. Well done on passing your test, that must be a great feeling :)

You'll notice a difference in yourself after a while and it'll become second nature to you. Everyone used to say that to me and I always thought they were full of shit but it really does

Yeah I'm chuffed.. I've been so giddy and happy all day :-D
