I was never sharp in my early adulthood. My driving instructors cheated me by not showing due diligence. I was told I made serious mistakes which earned me straight failures in my practical driving tests. I passed all my theory tests. I failed my practical tests three times but persevered because I wanted to drive in emergencies to help myself and my family.
On my fourth attempt, I was thunderstruck by a good gentleman tester. I told him it was my fourth try. He asked me why I had not attached receipts of all my previous three attempts on my testing card. I said I didn’t know I had to do that. The tester decided to pass me, although he said I made a mistake and he could have failed me.
I was very happy to get my driver’s licence. I couldn’t afford to buy a car but I was content to know I could be the emergency driver should the need arise.
