My 25 Things: Learning how to Drive

  1. Learning How to Drive

Not everyone will think this is an accomplishment but with all the years and rules I had to go through to get my full license this was worth blogging for. Since my husband and my grandma taught me how to drive manual in the Philippines, driving automatic here was kinda easier EXCEPT I had to be on the other side of the car and the other side of the road. Gave me a headache the first few times I was in the car but had to get over it. I am proud to say that in all my driving tests, I passed first go! Amazing since most of the Aussies I know had to re-do a few tests. Grinning ear to ear was in my every photo cause I was that excited to pass every time!

In Sydney there are 4 levels of licenses, Learners, Red P, Green P then Full license. Learner drivers always need a Full licensed driver to guide them. Red P Platers can drive but only to 90kms/hr. Green P Platers can drive to 110kms/hr and Full license drivers can drive according to the speed limit and are allowed to have 1 standard drink and drive home. Not sure if they’ve changed the rules now but that’s what it was when I was driving then. Even if I’m a full licensed driver now, I still don’t drink! Too scared of the cops! Haha.

Right now, all I'm waiting for is my new licence with my new surname :) Woohoo!
