Am I going to crash?
It's frightening as hell though. I have my test tomorrow.
Good luck though.
Check your blind spots!
(so many of my friends have failed because of this)
(Probably only about two actually)
(I only have 2 friends)
It'll be the first of many driving tests for me. I want to be a top police driver.
Get to chase Twockers around all day?
shooting things whilst driving at 250mph.
I think I want to be a bus driver!

you'd get to swear more. Probably.

It's christmas in 8 weeks?

Anyone own/driven one?
Oh AND he's called Steve Martin. Can't be a bad thing...

Will I need to take my paper license too?
I didn't stall!

Maybe you'll be able to negotiate that turn near your house better than I do then...

As is the fear in their voice if they ever have to grab the steering wheel from you.
