Seriously, I have never studied so hard for a freaking test in my life. The three months of classes, taking practice exams and studying every night paid off.
I was nervous until I saw the first question. Then I relaxed. At that point what could I do?
Andrea, our instructor, from the school drove (he has a SICK ride) us out to the place located somewhere way north of the Center. A fellow American and I had to go to the Italian DMV since we were taking the test in English. The other students were able to take the test at a school but starting next month, all tests will be computerized.
Andrea waited with us as the results came in. He gave me a thumbs up but I couldn't get too excited because the other student failed. I felt celebrating would have been in poor taste.
While I still think the prices are quite high for the Autoscuola, you are getting your money's worth. The school does all the paperwork. After seeing the lines at the DMV, I'm happy about that. I almost got into fisticuffs with an employee at the DMV in Washington D.C. I can't even imagine the drama that goes down Italian style.
Next week I start lessons for driving stick/manual. Should be fun.
