Due to an up-and-coming birthday, and because I haven’t been tested in 8 years, when I received my Illinois driver’s license renewal notice I was informed that I would have to take the written exam.
I don’t know about you, but when I drive I don’t think about how many feet—precisely—I have to stop behind a railroad track, or the age/weight of children required to be in a safety seat (mine’s 27 years old so it’s been awhile). I’m not sure what the posted signs would mean if the words were wiped clear and I had to rely on color/shape alone…
…so off I went to the Department of Motor Vehicles to get the Illinois Rules of the Road handbook so that I could study, Study, STUDY.
I got my new driver’s license. This time the organ donor information is built right in (instead of a separate card), and just in time for an adventure! You’ll find out more about that on Thursday. Stay tuned…
What was the last test you took?
