Passed the Theory Test!
Yay, God! I passed my UK Driving License Theory Test this blustery autumn morning.
I got 35/35 on the multiple choice part (I ought to have, with how much I studied; ask my family), and then 59/75 on the hazard perception part (you have to get 44/75 to pass), which involved watching 14 video clips and clicking the mouse as soon as I saw anything resembling a developing hazard (a pedestrian, an intersection, a horse, a bus, an ambulance, a bridge, a curve, a car pulling out, etc).
As the Test Centre staffer handed me my results, he kindly said, "Good luck on your practical." I think, though, that I prefer my brand of assurance I'll pass the next test: rigorous preparation and lots of desperate prayer. Worked this time.
Now to book some hands-on lessons with a CDI (certified driving instructor) and the practical test. I aim to pass the practical by Christmas (before the dreaded experience of switching back to the "other" side of the road in Colorado over the holidays). However, I have two years in which to pass it before I would need to retake the theory. On the other hand, I only have until August 2007 before I would have to stop driving, since my U.S. license would no longer be legal in the UK, having lived here a year by then.
Thanks to anyone who prayed for me :-)
