Waiting for my license & a new car?

Sign in to follow this  


Because I switched from manual to automatic during my lessons I needed to wait a bit longer than usual for my license. Last week we went to the driver's license office type of thing and told them to change my license. We paid for the quicker time (a few days vs. six weeks for 19€ was worth it) and it should be ready by Wednesday or Thursday. I can't wait to hold that damn thing in my hands, and not only the paper with the big fat "this is not a license" on it. 

Yesterday we went to look at cars again and visited a Renault dealer. We looked at a couple of cars and I saw one I instantly liked and sat down in it. It was love at first sight. It has less stuff in it than the Jazz/Fit, but more PS and it is classified as a Mini-SUV kind of car. Its name is Captur. Way to expensive brand new but it is a car that is often used for leasing and he said that there will be some coming back soon and then the price is okay. 

So we hope that we can test drive soon. Right now it is Honda Jazz/Fit vs. Renault Captur. I will take them on the same route so I can compare.

Question- Do you need a different type of license if you drive a manual vs an automatic? That's oddly specific.

It is the same license, but in the back there is a lot of space for specific things. Like for example if you also have a license to drive motorcycles it is written on there. Or that I need to drive with glasses. Same with automatic, the number "78" is written on the back to show that I can only drive those cars. 

I found a picture of the back. You can see the date of the passed exam under number 10 and in the section under 12 would be 78 written behind class B. Glasses are in the last line at the bottom if I remember right.

That is so interesting. Huh. Because my daily driver car is a manual, but I occasionally drive one of our other cars that are automatics.

I just want to let you know again that what you’ve done is great. It’s nice to progress and success stories from our peoples.

You deserve a car! It’s like a rite of passage in certain classes of US society that a teen gets a car at 16. And as discussed, we have to do so much less work.

If you would like to share, I’d like to see the car (or a generic equivalent) when it happens. :)

Given that at this exact time elven years ago I was at my worst point mental health wise, this still feels very weird.

Of course I will keep you updated. A lot is happening this week, and there will for sure be another entry in the upcoming days.

I honestly still need time to process it. This is how a Olympic athlete must feel after winning gold. In the interviews directly after the competitions they alway say, that they need time to actually understand what happened. That is exactly how I feel. And I'm still waiting for the medal ceremony (aka license), I only have the damn flower bouquet. 😀

Great news gobbles, and I hope one of these cars becomes available soon!

@keen23 in Australia if you get your license on an automatic car you can’t drive a manual for the next year.  This wasn’t always the case, but the restriction came in 10 or more years ago.

      Today we learn that Gwen imagines every little thing to be a sign from God, that Joe is just an afterthought and she's really married to God (does it mean she's a bigamist?), and that the primary function of a husband is to act as your defence attorney when meany meanies say mean things about you.

      The Encouragement You Need

      July 02, 2020

      What a genius and yet powerful King we have an opportunity to serve! He opens my eyes daily to new information from His Word or from life that confirms that He is the source of everything. So I love Him as a teacher, a comforter, a constant companion, a trustworthy leader, a husband/defender when I am slandered or falsely accused, an hour-by-hour boss, the source of life, and the love of my life to whom I can confidently give my love and passion.

      It means everything to have His love returned to me. Just one sign sends a big smile to my face. It gives me the encouragement that I needed. First Peter 1:8 describes my feelings…“Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and even though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.” I long to see His face.

      "Genius yet powerful King" strikes me as a stupid phrasing. As if she normally expects genius kings to be powerless. 

      This is another familiar devo from thread 7. You might think these turbulent times would inspire spiritual leaders to address the issues. But Gwod hath not seen the need.

      She can't even talk about her family (save Jill) because of the NDA in place. Deanna has one, too.

      Are those things generally indefinite? Can we expect a tell in say ten years?

      Tricia Regar (clean house with kids) is also Diamond. Does that means she also makes 400k a year?

      According to that Reddit analysis, yes. In the latest available income disclosure, Plexus says that the average earnings of all "ambassadors" in 2018 is $310.48. That's not much different than the $301 reported in 2016 & mentioned in that Reddit analysis. 

      Chances are good that the majority of the schlubs in Shoshanna's downline aren't bringing in enough money to realize a profit after laying out hundreds or thousands for the stock they're supposed to be selling + their annual membership & renewal fees, and any other expenses like travel or training seminars. And don' forget the $$ that gets siphoned off the top into Shoshanna's pockets.
