biggrin another one on the roads

Yep, that's right, got me P's this morning! I'm happy as Larry, hadn't driven a manual for a good 4 months and I got it first time.

No car of my own yet, gotta get a full time job and a loan asap, but mum's whacking me down as a driver on the Fairlane, so steer clear of any Burgandy NL's with P plates on em.

Re: another one on the roads

I'll have to watch out for you. Good to see you got them first time and in a manual. I did the same (except it was in a town of 700 people :s6: so that is hardly...well...hard).

Re: another one on the roads

Well done. I'm just glad that I got mine in an auto...but then again I have no restrictions cause it didnt matter at the time so I took the easy way :s6:

I'd hate to have to go and do the test again.. congrats!
