I passed my theory and hazard perception test this morning.
One test down, and only the driving test to go. (thanks for the hints Alex!)
Thankfully that is still a few weeks away. It is amazing what a weight is off my shoulders now that is done. I thought it was straight forward, because I knew what was in store for me, but there comes a point where human nature kicks in and a slight panic sneaks over you and you think: "what if I fail?" I just tried to shrug it off and keep going. It paid off, and I scored well.
Now all that is left is to stop thinking small while driving, I mean small as in driving a car small. It's time to wrap my mind around a 30 and 40 foot machine and drive well.
I might be found when not in a training bus sitting above the driver in a double decker pretend driving.
