Hi everyone, sorry for the long silence but a lot had been happening in real life.
For starters, we’ve upped and moved away from Kuala Lumpur to Aberdeen, UK! While packing up our possessions proved easy, getting my UK residence visa was another matter all together but more about the visa in another post.
I am now sitting in our rented apartment here in Aberdeen, the skies are gloomy, there’s a very cold wind blowing about outside but I’m nice and snug here. I’m also looking at guides on passing the UK driving license test. I hold a valid Malaysian license and have about 11 years of experience dodging Kancils and Honda kapchais on potholed Malaysian roads so I’m heartbroken the UK authorities don’t believe in my hard-earned skill and insist I have to take a theory and practical test again. My Malaysian license is good for a year, after which I can only drive on a provisional license.
The annoying thing about the UK system is I can’t take a practice driving test at www.dmvcheatsheets.com as that is a US site. The good thing about a UK driving license is that once I get it, I’m set for life! Woohoo!
So wish me luck… I need to get this bit of paperwork sorted out and then I’m *really* set for life in the UK.
