Do you remember the day when you passed your road test and got your license? Do you remember how you felt when that day actually happened? Recently, I passed my road test and I am so happy about it! The reason why I am happy is because I do not need to wait for my road test and license anymore.
I never learned how to drive during the actual time when high schoolers had to drive. I learned how to drive at the end of senior year. The road test was an obstacle that I had to face while I was in college. I had to do my road test three times due to scheduling problems and bad outcomes in the road test. Waiting to pass my road test was very annoying because I just wanted to get it over with and focus on my other obstacles. The more obstacles I take down, the more fun I have in the very end.
When I took my road test for the very last time, I was scared before I had to start my test. The fear was not like it was before in the two attempts because I was not that excited. I felt like I was my usual self because I was naturally doing my road test. I was not pushing myself to do the road test. I made sure that this time I was prepared than the two attempts. There should not be any mistakes and signs of fear. I felt like I needed to use the bathroom when it was almost time for me to start the road test. However, I told myself to ignore that feeling and just get that road test done with.
The instructor was a nice man. I believe that he was the same instructor during my second attempt because he looked like him. I followed his instructions carefully and made sure that I was also following my own instructions. I made sure that I yielded and turned on my signal when I needed to. At the end of the road test, I was expecting him to say that I made a mistake and must retake the road test. Ironically, he told me that I did a good job. This meant that the wait was finally over. My parents were happy when they heard the news.
Even though the road test was completed, I still had to wait for my license. I did not bring any documents to verify the six points ID. Oh, great. This wait was not over yet. At least it did a few days later when I went back to the DMV to get it. At that time, I was well-prepared and brought all the documents that verified the six points ID. Getting the license did not take as long as expected since appointments at the DMV usually take a long time.
I came back home, feeling happy about my license. I told all of my friends that I finally got my license and they were happy about the news. My parents also felt happy for me. They knew that I worked hard and waited so long to get the license. I am aware that there are many obstacles left for me to finish at college, but for now, I want to taste my victory for overcoming this obstacle.
