Congrats man..

In the US, the driving test is done by State, not nationally. So one state can make it easy, one can make it hard. Not very United if you ask me...

In Massachusetts, about 17 years ago when I took my exam.. I had the most feared State Trooper as the examiner. Feared because he was known to fail people very often.. I left the RMV parking lot, drove down a side street and pulled over. Made a 3 point turn, and drove back. I then got out of the car with it still in drive... and yet, I passed. I think he liked my fingerless leather gloves I wore..

I wish the US would have a requirement for all people to wait until they hit 18y/o to get a license, require all to take drivers education classes, and have a single national license with picture and fingerprint...

Of course I have...but that doesn't mean I agree with it. I honestly feel it should be rewritten, or at least amended to address todays issues.. Things are very different now than they were back then.

This is just my opinion...not trying to offend anyone or be too political..

Yeah, I think mine was "not using the mirrors enough", it's only afterwards that someone informs you that you should physically turn your head to prove you're actually looking in them...duh! Like I can't move my eyes I mean, I never hit anything
