I passed! The Advanced car driving test went really well, so well in fact that the examiner had no comments about how I might improve my driving, which pleased me.
Coincidentally my certificate relating to passing the Advanced motorcycle test, and my new membership card stating I am a Full member of the IAM not just an Associate member, arrived in the post this morning. An auspicious start to the day, I thought!
Life is busy just now, with amongst other things a close family member being quite ill, and other (nicer) stuff happening, so a longer post will have to wait for the moment.
