Should I be PC and apologize for that stereotypical comment?
So last Tuesday I went to the DMV to upgrade my scooter license. My previous license entitled me to drive 50cc size scooters, and only required taking the written test (which I failed the first time). However, now that I have a 125cc engine, I need to take the driving portion of the test.
The test consists of driving a straight line between 2 sensors about two feet apart, not touching the ground and not taking less than 8 seconds, meaning you must be able to keep your balance and direction while driving relatively slowly.
Then you drive a small circular track, keeping between the 2 sensors, and making sure to stop at a railroad crossing, red light, and pedestrian crossing.
Wait, uh, what? What did I just write? Do people here really know they're supposed to stop at red lights and pedestrian crossings? Huh, wonders never cease.
Anyway, I passed the most difficult part—the slow, straight line—without a problem. However, when I got to the stop light, I misjudged how far my front tire extends, and it just barely touched the sensor at the line you're supposed to stop behind. BUZZ!
I can retest in 7 days. I've heard there's an older woman who's taken and failed the test dozens of times, so I'm not (yet) the biggest loser at the DMV. Time will tell.
