Personal - Keeping our P-Plates in Ministry

PersonalBy Richard McMahon

My daughter recently passed the Driver Knowledge Test, receiving her L-Plates and a log book. My free time each evening currently consists of nervously occupying the passenger’s seat of the family car, maintaining a calm veneer, and offering pearls of wisdom and affirmation as she slowly accustoms herself to the experience and rules of the mysterious world of motoring. One hundred and twenty hours of guided driving later, in a range of conditions including night-time, rain, sealed and unsealed roads and heavy traffic conditions, she will undergo an independent driving test to assess her readiness to gain her provisional licence.
