Our Canadian driver's licenses are not accepted here, so instead of just flipping them over for a Spanish license, we have to go through the entire (expensive) testing process. Ho freaking Hum
Especially as the theoretical tests is a ridiculous monster, which I am not going to go into as it will raise my blood pressure and I want to go to bed soon, and not lie there grinding my teeth!
However the man did it and he passed on the first try - an accomplishment here!
He had his first in-car driving class today. I would like to add that he is pushing 60 (from no long distance) and has been driving for over 40 years without an accident and I have known him for 23 or 24 and during that time anyway, he has never gotten a ticket. He drives, perfectly (not like me!)
So off he went.
The driving instructor told him that if the flow of traffic is over the speed limit (within reasonable limits) he could go that speed - which he would of course have done if he had not had a driving instructor with him! If he had gone with the flow of traffic, the instructor would have told him to slow down, no doubt.
He also needs to return his hands to the wheel more quickly after changing gears....yadda yadda yadda, if that is all he had to say in a full hour of driving.........
Bring on the exam!!!!
(on another note, Chuck and I did about 30+ K today, lovely out there (the dog is sleeping s.o.l.i.d.l.y!). He managed to tear a toenail back, but seems to have fixed it himself, so I'll keep an eye on that, but otherwise it seems to be OK.
