I Passed Driving Test!!!

The title says it all... But it was quite a traumatic experience, though. First of all was the wait - I went to the Bintawa driving institute at about 9.30 a.m. with my jeans slightly damp because of the incessant rain. After doing the hill and all that I still had to wait until around 2.30 p.m. then only I can start the road test.

The road test started quite smoothly for me; I got route A which was a blessing, then I drove all the way to the point where I had to U-turn. At this stage I almost turned at the wrong place instead of after the traffic light. That was when I started to get nervous. The traffic light turned yellow in front of my eyes, so I had to stop. The examiner was scolding me for almost turning the wrong place and for stopping so suddenly. Hello, sorry but the light just turned red.

Then the light turned green and MY ENGINE DIED. *expletive* But I didn't panic, I just started the engine and went on my way. The driver scolded me again for driving so fast. *expletive* Then as I was nearing the institute already, there was a straight road on which I was driving on gear 3, but quite fast. The examiner scolded me again for not changing to gear 4. *expletive* it was nearing a turning bah...

Then at the end when I was coming out of a mini-roundabout and stopping at the Berhenti sign, MY ENGINE DIED AGAIN. *expletives* Before I got out, the examiner scolded me some more, said that I would have had accidents so many times, but congratulated me.

But wait, the story's not over. I went into the office to hand in the report, then my instructor asked for my I.C. and a picture. This is when I suddenly remembered... *expletives* I left my I.C. and L license in the examiner's car!!! I rushed out of the office to find that the car had gone with another examinee. *expletives expletives* So, I was so vexed already, having to wait for the car to come back. After about half-an-hour or so it seemed, the car finally returned. The examiner scolded me once more. I got back my I.C. and license, thanked the examiner, and all was well.

What a nerve-wrecking experience it was. But the bottom line is: I passed my driving test! Hallelujah! I can drive liaooooo!!!

my mom says the examiners are mostly like that. It is to identify and set apart emotional drivers which may cause accidents. Hence, the overrated scoldings.....
