Got my license!

I posted about a year ago on what info I needed for my permit. Well, I got my license and passed the test quite well done yesterday. I will be taking my first solo journey today to work. I'm slightly nervous, but I keep reassuring myself-it's only two miles away.

Got any tips for new drivers?

Congratulations to you! Freedom, haha!

Stay alert, don't text and drive and be calm and confident. Nothing is worse than a nervous, super slow driver.

You'll be GREAT!

Congratulations.

I still remember that feeling when I got into the car on my own for the first time after my test. OMG there's no one here to remind me what to do if I forget, it's all on me now! Tips I would give you are don't be too worried, the examiner had confidence in you, you need to have confidence in you too :)

I did just fine driving to and from work. I was more scared last week when I had to walk in the rain to work. I think I remembered more driving by myself than with my parent; maybe being a pedestrian for so long helped me to be more mindful of other cars on the road.
