took my drivers test

My driver's license was up for renewal on the 6th of June.  I had to take ALL four tests too!  Including the core knowledge test you take when you are 16!  I just got my permit for driving a school bus 3 years ago too.  Along with the core knowledge test I had to take the CDL, the passenger endorcement and school bus endorcement, 4 test in all.  I was very, very nervous as the test is now computerized and if you miss a question it tells you right away.  I did study and made sure I skipped any questions that I wasn't sure of.  I was able to go back to them, or if I had enough questions correct the computer stopped the test with a passing grade.

AND of course I pass all four the first time!  Now I am good for 8 years!

School is winding down, the high school kids take their finals Monday, the Junior high is going to the pool (I am driving), and the grade school kids only need to be tolerated for 1 and 1/2 more days.

It hailed on me yesterday, but the cooler temperatures have been  welcome.  It gets super hot on a school bus!

Rose -

I am SO proud of you for passing your tests.  Mine come up for renewal in 2008, so I have a bit of a breather here.  I, too, will be very nervous when this time comes.  I make it a practice to keep myself refreshed so I try to study my books from time to time.  Eight years is a nice long break from this worry, that's good to hear especially since we are both governed by the same State and Laws.  

Happy Birthday to you...it's coming up real soon.

I'm glad to hear that you're excited about school being over soon.  You have a nice long break ahead of you to spend with your grandsons and with Tracey and the new baby.   I'll be driving ALL summer long (well, at least June, July and part of August) with my HS and I can't wait!  I can't go a weekend without my "diesel fix".  We have our Summer Drivers Meeting Friday of next week and I'll find out my assignments then.  

Are you driving for Prairie Fest again this year?


Hugs to you,

Kathy G.

Glad you passed! In NY we take the written test every other year along with a physical performance test and full road test. Every year we have a defensive driving test. When our licence is up for renewal all we have to pass is the eye exam because everything else is up to date. (Which is dumb because we have to pass the eye exam every year at our physical) Two more weeks to go here. Enjoy your vacation!
