A recently licensed driver is also a newbie. Remember the day you got your drivers license? Things are different now, but when I was learning to drive, I took the drivers ed classes and got my permit at 15. The day I turned 16, Daddy drove me to the DMV, where I proceeded to take the written test, and then the dreaded road test. That road test nearly did me in. I turned the three point turn into four points and a few other minor infractions, but I passed. Afterward...Daddy drove me back home, or to school, I don't remember which.
At that point, I thought I had learned to drive. I hadn't really driven a lot with my permit, so even though I had the license to prove it, my lack of experience meant I was still a newbie.
Shortly after I got my license, I convinced my Mom to let me drive to school one day. So cool was I. After school a friend and I drove the few blocks to Mayberry's for ice cream. Ms. Cool had left her purse on the chair at school. No license, no money and driving my Mom's car. Fortunately, we made it back to the school, I collected my purse and drove home with no one being the wiser. Some things are best left unsaid.
What are some of your early driving experiences?
