Provisional license
« on: September 23, 2020, 03:55:47 pm »
I got my UK provisional driver's license over the weekend, and today I passed the theory portion of the test. Which means that after driving for nearly half a century... I now have a learner's permit.  :laugh:

Congrats on that, hon. This means you get to learn to drive on roads that have... you know, corners. ;) And you need to learn how to deal with British road rage. Which is usually a lot of beeping and tutting. But not actually doing anything. If you can learn how to deal with someone else's eyes boring into the back of your skull while they're silently fuming because they thought they might be late to something... you can officially drive in the UK. :D

Ugh, the UK is such a horrible place to drive.... It's all egos and a complex car size/age/value hierarchy, combined with passive-aggressives who like to create situations where they feel offended by something another drive does.
I took a £5000 pay cut to live within walking distance of work, JUST to avoid it all.

One thing that I just don't understand about driving in England, is why they still drive on the left side of the road.  ???   I know that there are a few other countries that do this, but most are islands or former British controlled areas.

Sweden was one of these places, but they changed in 1967 and switched to the right side of the road. When is England going to start driving on the proper side of the road ?

Agree with you Rakel, it's about time the rest of the world fell in line with us ;-D
