Today in the morning I went for my Tipic test. Last few days devoted to cramming answers bore fruit with my passing the test with flying colors at one shot. Most of the other fellow examinees departed the test centre, woebegone, for having failed. So I was really happy to have accomplished the first needful for driving license. Now at least I am eligible to take my car out on road for practice with someone owning a valid driving license accompanying me.
Driving is important if one stays in a place where we are staying now where public transport is few and far between. Last time when my hubby fell sick, I found myself in the soup due to not knowing driving. I only know how I had to struggle to keep everything in place while he was away in hospital. Bad experience makes you realize the importance of things you usually take for granted.
