So let’s see, where do I start? First off, it’s over a year that I’ve been a G2 licensed driver – I passed my road test on Feb 21st last year! 🙂
In the ‘not good news’ category, I got my car insurance renewal papers already, and they came with a pretty hefty premium increase. Sigh. (Guess that’s what I get for getting in a fender bender after having my car for a few weeks.)
I’ve booked my first try at the G road test, for March 12th. I’m feeling pretty confident, should probably make some time to drill myself on the basics between now and then. Maybe if I pass the G before my insurance renews, I can use that as leverage to get a break on the premium.
And I’ve booked the car into a collision repair shop to get the little dings in the bumper taken care of before the test. 😉
This kinda stuff isn’t my favorite part of being a car owner, it adds up into stress. But if you take it a bit at a time, it’s not that bad.
Fender benders are a bit of a sticking point, sadly. I’ve contemplated numerous times getting rid of my car just to save on petrol, insurance, registration, servicing, etc. costs, but my city has a fairly crap public transport network so it wouldn’t work too well.
