Who cares?? (I do...)

My dad had to renew his license which he was granted in Trissur a couple of years ago. As we are now in Trivandrum, he thought of getting it renewed. I grabbed this oppurtunity to get my license too as I had already given my learners test. As told by my friend once the license is not taken within six months of the learners then we will have to renew it by paying a fine. So I told my driving school instructor that I would 'like' to take my driving test in the coming week after renewing my learners. Everytime my car gets into the main road I feel like I am being roasted above a fire pot by hungry tribals. I mean a situation almost equivalent to that. You don't know if your ever going to return back home with all sense organs in place. But I have to be courageous. And hence I thought of taking the license.. the driving can always be done later...Much to my surprise, a 'new rule' has been invented i.e. once a person does not take his license test within the given time then the learners cannot be renewed, but will have to be take it again. That means a whole lot of mugging up of all those rules and blah blah. I am done. Totally. I don't care if my prestige or status is gone as low as that of a pig .Whatsoever. I don't care if people are going to make fun of me saying 'hey !I've got a license how come you don't scarypoo'. All I care is of my life and the one day I can probably save by not wasting it studying..sorry..mugging up some traffic rules that are meant to secure my life for God knows how many days. *SIGH* I am a loser with a capital L :(

Just Visit your RTO Agent pay him a little more and you can get a license without a actual test or any hassle ..

In Mumbai it typically costs 1800

Goodluck if you choose the honest way out :)

Hey, Why do u wanna study for that learners test?.. I didnt even know when I had to take up..I went to the RTO ofice to find out about the formalities, and they said pay 200 for application..fill it and give a test...I had time, so i filled and gave, they pointed me to a comp.. where question propped up...
it was like "If a symbol having a u shape is shown (as it was), what does it mean?"..I had sense enough to know its a U-turn..I easily cleared it in 3-4 minutes..I didnt even know anything!!!!...Its such an easy task..Why dont u do again? Y do u wanna study?..Go early to office.. so there wont be queue and give the test..the test is very easy..I ddnt even get tat rule book for preparation...

Timber: No it does'nt happen that way here... we can't pay and get stuff here... besides what's the point?? Even if I have the license I won't be able to drive cos I just do not have the guts :(.. but I'll rather choose the honest way... getting a license on your own credits ... the result is fantastic !

Viks : I know it's no big deal.. I am just too scared of driving that's it and since dad is there as an alternative.. I am taking it quite easy :) But at some point I know I'll have to press the clutch and put the first gear and start on... some faaar away dream...

Hi there,

visiting your blog first time and i am really impressed by your talent.

i dont think license is must requirement in India. ;) Only thing is you should have skills to deal with traffic inspectors.. rite!..

And also its confidence that makes you better driver not license.

So dont worry & enjoy your drive..

Cheers!
