I studied, I practice and I had a few test runs with my brother in law. I would not fail. I would not let myself miss out on getting my license at 16 years of age.
When I turned 16 in April so many years ago, I didn’t rush into Regina to write my test / take the driving test. I waited for April 27. I had my reasons!
But when I did get into do the exam, I passed and I sure was and still am proud of this feat. The instructor told me I lost some points due to being cautious on the speed. Parallel parking was not a problem. And I still find it fun to parallel park – test your skill. I enjoy driving in big cities where people know what they are doing. One rule of thumb that seems to be successful is stay in the middle lane, you have an escape route at all times. Do the speed limit or a bit quicker and you should roll along nicely. Keep your eyes moving at all times.
Tomorrow, Lewis & Evans are joined by Constable Curtis Warnar of the Regina Police Service Traffic Unit. Wildly popular on social media for insight to the distracted driver, general rules of the road and other things. Send your text question to us at 306 936-6262 or call in at that same number. You can also email Jamie or myself.
Do you think people should have their license tested every 5 to 10 years.
Some of my favourite things in driving are; cars blowing stop signs in my neighbourhood, taking two lanes when you should be turning into one. And I have a question. If I’m driving with no stop signs and no noted cross walks, who has the right of way .. me or the pedestrian that walks out into traffic.
Join us tomorrow beginning at 5:30.
