I'm a grown up

Yep, I've done it. I'm now a 37 year old grown up! After 3 years the "P" plates (probationary) are off the car and I have a full drivers licence. Yay!

Now just over 2 months and Ayden will have the "L" plates on. Timed that well didn't I :)

Congratulations! Well done! Great timing indeed.

Cathy said...

congrats! Fantastic. Have fun with Ayden - my Sean just got his L's and it is very nervewracking! They sure do grow up fast.

Annie said...

Kate said...

That is an interesting idea, we don't have anything like that in the states, here you turn 16 you take the test bam you have a drivers license.

In California, you can get a permit at 15 & 1/2. Then you have to take classes and have 50 hours of driving practice and pass a written test and a road test to get your license. Neither my 21 year nor my almost 17 year old boys have yet gotten their licenses. It's just too much trouble and insurance is outrageously expensive so Mom gets to be their taxi driver or they ride bikes. I am curious about the probationary driver. That is so different! Congrats!

Congratulations Rachel!!!! I've been driving for a lot longer but unfortunately it's never made me feel like a grown up!!!!! ;o) I don't think I ever will! But I hope I make a good enough impression on Monday when I start my new job - they, at least, need to think I'm a grown up!!!

Well done.... good timing!!!

Nikki said...

Yay! You GO girl!

I never had p's... got my liscence in the UK and was let loose on the roads like a real driver! By the time I came home I was past the probationary period. It must feel like a graduation.

Congratulations, Wow it is so different these days, back in the 1950s I drove around the streets of Melbourne Collins Street Bourke, Spring and Russell with a hand break stop on the hill near where the Russell Police Station and then around Carlton and back to the Exhibition building. I would have loved a sticker saying I am a new driver when I went into Melbourne.

Well done Rachel and nicely timed too. Bet it feels fantastic not to have to worry about those P plates any more.

I got my p-plates when I was 34, because I was determined to have my licence before #1 Son got his learners. I understand completely how good you feel. Grown up, indeed. :)
