Belated news

Remember this? I realize that I never explained the circumstances behind the timing. I wasn't just getting myself inked four weeks before my wedding for the sheer thrill of possibly being scabby and scaly on the big day. I was celebrating the cumulative results of this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this and this.



That's right, dear readers, four months ago I got my G2! Now if that means nothing to you, you either live outside Ontario or you got your driver's license before the graduated licensing program was implemented. That would be about 95% of my readers. Long story short, in September I passed my first road test and am now permitted to drive unaccompanied. I have done so exactly once. I will tell you about that experience in a future post. I will also tell you about the road test, which I probably should have failed.

i've never attempted to get any sort of license in the past. this year i'm going for my ML1 & 2 (ML = Motorcycle - Limited speed, capable of less than 70km/hr). can't wait to hear about your solo experience!

Those graduated licenses sound like a good idea. Over here you can pass your test and the next day free to drive whatever you like wherever and whenever. Must admit I'm impressed with the space saving parking above

I still remember my driving test, many years ago. Do tell about your test.

Congrats and I can't wait to read the rest! It looks like it's been an adventure for sure.

We need to hook you up with a 24 foot U-Haul truck and then nothing will ever worry you again!

:o)

Congratulations on your license!

Congratulations, Jen! This is great news.

When I come to Toronto, you can drive me around town. :)

For a brief moment, I thought that was a photo of an accident YOU were involved in... then I realized it was a blue Honda, and not even an Element. Whew!

I flunked my first road test, so you're way ahead of me!

Congratulations!
