After much delay, I finally started learning how to drive. Now that I’m older, I have more commitments and not having a driver’s licence is proving to be a major pain. The matter will only get worse because I’ll be based in two different campuses in the upcoming semester. Additionally, my workplace is located in the city. What did I get myself into?
There’s still four months before this problem reaches its climax, which doesn’t leave me a lot of time. In Australia, new drivers under 21 are required to log 120 hours of practise. Yes, you read that correctly: 120 hours. Above is my current number of hours, you can do the maths. Of course the sooner I get my licence the better but I have the option of waiting it out until my birthday in June.
So far driving has been an enjoyable experience. As I’ve been told, it really isn’t that hard. However, it can be stressful; you have to be on your toes at all times. Despite that, I still enjoy getting behind the wheels.
