Why must people add to noise and pollution to this poor old planet! :evil:

Everyone should just fly.

Fly my pretty.

Yeah, there's a Pass Plus here in England. Should be part of the actual test imho :x

Yeah, I'm going to put myself down for the Pass+ as soon as my car situation is sorted.

I was able to learn in my own car (Ford Ka2) for my lessons with my instructor from a school of motoring, Mark. He's level 6 qualified (teaches driving instructors and whatnot). He also does the Pass+. The idea of doing it in my own car (same lesson cost plus cost of running the car) was so that when I passed, I could drive it competently right off the bat without getting used to it. Mark hated my car.

It's an old P reg motor, which I filled up to a full tank yesterday, and the MOT expires in a couple of weeks, so I took it in to the garage for a service this morning. I wanted to make sure my car was up to scratch before doing the Pass+.

And got a call 20 minuites later to tell me that it would fail unless I had £500 worth of work on it. The tyres are worn down till the rims poke through at the front. The suspension arms are knackered and the clutch is leaking. All three things need to be replaced + £180 worth of labour.

The mechanic didn't charge me for the check which was nice.

Gutted, I drove home.

This evening I am the owner of another Ford Ka, in pea green (yeuch) DN06 with 2 year guarentee, a stereo that works, a rear wiper that works, a demister that works on settings lower than full blast, the interior is not drooping, and yet retains electric windows, central locking and tight steering. Cost me a grand and the old man three. One previous owner, 16000 on the clock, I gather. I get it Friday.

Just in time for me to go to the cinema with Ed Saturday night. ^^

And Mark had better like my new car.

Yay! Go you!

I still haven't had any driving lessons, and I've had a provisional license for a year now. :oops:

But when I eventually do the test, I'll do it in Irish, as they don't fail you for breaking red lights. :lol:

(All the irish testers live in Connemara, so they're reluctant to come down South twice for the same person.)

Did my lessons and test in my own car too, needless to say there was much tutting and finger wagging when the instructor saw my Rex7 for the first time 8)

Still, I shut the git up with my superb road sense(17 years on m'bikes) and breezed test first go, followed by big donut on parents driveway when I got home. My old man nearly had a siezure :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nope. I discovered I'm actually doing the work thing now, so it could help me get a bigger bonus next year. :D

Of course, don't think I'd make many friends if I offered the idea that to increase productivity, take away everyone's internet.
