I Finally Got My Driver’s License

The day I was leaving for Spring Break I took my final driving test. Not like in Europe it had two parts in the U.S.. During the first part, I had to park the car in three different positions at the parking slot between the cones. In order to move on to the next part, which is the actual driving in the city, I had to pass this one first.

The first part of the driving skills test: parking between the cones.

So, I succeeded the first part of the test, so I went for the next one which was just driving in Holland for about 30 minutes. But what was surprising to me were two tasks that I had to do during the driving.

The first one was to turn up and down the volume of the radio. I did not understand the government official as well when he said it for the first time. I was driving in some neighborhood and suddenly, he asked me to turn the volume up and then down, so I did and he said “good”.

Then, couple minutes later, he asked me to do the second task, which was turning the fan on and off. I was surprised because it was just common sense, so I did it again. But I am assuming that not everyone can turn on and off the fan and drive smoothly. Nevertheless, I made it, so I got the driver’s license.
