Drivers Ed

So I don’t talk about it a lot because it doesn’t matter but I don’t have my drivers license yet.

I’ll give you a quick rundown of what one has to do to get a drivers license above the age of 18 where I live.

  • take a required 6 hour class
  • take a driving test
  • get license

I think that’s a pretty short list.

In comparison, the teenagers have to take a class, have over 30 logged hours driving, have a drivers permit for 6 months, have very stringent restrictions on their license for a year, and then they can drive however they please.

So I took the first step to getting my license this past Saturday.

I took my 6 hour course and I’d like to tell you about it.

I came to the driving school at about 7:45 and sat waiting for the class to begin at 8:00.

The class did not begin at 8:00.

There were only 5 people in my class and 3 out of 5 of them were late.

So when they finally arrived, the class began.

My classmates consisted of a girl who moved here from New York (where they have worthwhile public transportation), a girl who has been driving illegally without a license for 3 years,  a 20-something DJ who had an affinity for staring at me, and a 60 year old man who recently moved here from Nigeria.

We’re like a group of rejected X-men.

So what actually happened in the class is pretty expected. We read the DMV drivers handbook and got lectured.

I would like to tell you about a video they made us watch, however.

I wish I remembered the title of it, but I’ll give you a synopsis.

Long, drawn out footage of dead bodies hanging out of cars with the reason they crashed written on screen.

That’s it.

Just gore and “eating a cheeseburger while driving”.

After doing some mundane studying and watching the aforementioned snuff film, we took 2 tests.

I got a perfect score on both of them so I was able to leave an hour early while the people who didn’t score as well were offered retakes.

I took a bit of time to camwhore in the bathroom which was shockingly nice.

Another great post, Mikah.

Thanks Mikah.

I hope the readers liked it just as much.
