I am driving my 2 wheeler for the last 4 years (of course without license). My hubby got a car last year and before the car delivered to us, he learnt car driving and got the license also. He was telling me to go for driving class to get license (for both 2 & 4 wheelers) so that it will be very helpful in case of emergency. I enquired couple of driving schools in our area and found one suitable school and started driving on an auspicious day morning 6.00 – 7.00. After that come back and make my kids ready for school and I have to get ready for my office, cooking in between with the help of MIL. Successfully finished my 24 classes and was about to go for test. Alternate Saturdays we work and since I was running short of leave in my office, I thought of going on a second Saturday. I was looking at the daily sheet calendar on that day & it was predicted “FAILURE” for my zodiac!! Alas, why should I go that day and fail?? I told some reason to my driving master and avoided. The next Saturday, my boss planned for his leave and going out of station with his family and I have a gut feeling that he will not disturb me by calling every now & then and that I can call him up & tell him that I am also leave on that day. That Saturday I woke up little late and did household work slowly and started to go to the RTO office by 10.00 am. Called my boss like a good subordinate and below is out conversation” Me : Boss, I am going to take my 4 wheeler license and request leave today Boss : I heard the sigh of my boss & he said what!!! I am not there & how can you take leave? Please go to office. MD may ask for some queries. Since I am not there, definitely he will check our department :rant Me : OK boss. Let me go to office. With great disappointment, I gave a silly reason to my driving school and reached office. My MD never asked any query on that day. Finally again on a Saturday (office closed) went to the RTO office and was eagerly waiting for the test. Many people were there to driver 2-wheeler as well as 4-wheeler. One person was explaining all of us how to put “8” in 2-wheeler. It was really funny to see some people practicing. :biglaugh There were retired people also waiting to “pass out” the test. As you may be aware there are many conditions to put “8” to get license. I was the only person from my driving school to get 4-wheeler license on that day. Someone called out my name……… Oh!!! its my turn!!!! I had my TVS Scooty. With little difficulty without keeping my legs in ground I put “8” and passed the 2 wheeler. Its is the condition that if I pass in 4-wheeler test only, they will give me 2-wheeler license.:crazy Now its 4-wheeler license. Unfortunately, since I was the only one person who has to get the 4-wheeler license from my driving school, our trainer has not brought the car which I was practicing all along. He said all cars are same and you can drive anything and pass out. I was tensed. Including me there were 2 ladies to get 4 wheeler license. The car came, the Inspector was there. The other lady was there in the driving seat. I was asked to sit at the back. She drove the car very nicely & got PASS mark. Its my turn now. No escape.:hide: I sat in the driver seat and adjusted it. Put the key, started the car and I was taught to give mild accelerator and take my leg from clutch slowly, which I did. But………but………..the car went off. I was asked to start again which I did and accelerated heavily and the Inspector was staring at me like ???!!! Finally I drove hardly for a minute and the inspector asked (requested!!) me to stop the car. It was shame on me. I was not able to stare at the other lady who was sitting at the back seat. While going away, the inspector was telling me “Neengallam license vaangi poojai dhan pannanum” (you get the license and just do pooja). I was not at all sure whether I had cleared the test or not. I went back and asked my instructor about the result. You know what is that??? PASS!!! PASS!!! Finally I got the 4-wheeler license, as the Inspector rightly said, I am doing nothing with the License, even Pooja!!!
