Today I got my driver’s license. As you might be able to tell from the picture I could have made my own with a printer and laminator and saved 90 Kina. But it probably would have been an obvious fake since I would have tried to get the lines straight and all the information inside the appropriate boxes.
Now that I’m a licensed driver, I’m free* to use the mission owned vehicles to drive into town. Incidentally, they are all manual/straight/standard/stick. While I’ve driven such cars before, I’ve never owned one and driven it regularly and so I’m not super smooth. Nonetheless, I think practicing left-handed while driving on the left side of the road will be the ideal opportunity to perfect my technique.
PS Don’t worry, mom, I’ll be careful. My first attempt went off without a hitch (which is good because I don’t think pulling a trailer my first time would have been a good idea.**)
*By “free” I mean “allowed to” not “allowed to without charge”
