    When I was young I had a terrible driving record.In the first year that I drove at 16 yrs old I had 5 accidents,the last one of which totalled my 59 chevy bel-air.My insurance was placed in a risk pool which meant I was paying $1100/yr for car insurance in 1968.In 1970 I was real bad and had 6 accidents with charges ranging from speeding,malicious destruction of private property,to reckles driving and driving to endanger.I lost my license for 2 years.To make a long story short,I was in the military during those years and when I got out had to go to court to get a new license.Never had to take the test again like they do today.Without boring you with the rest of my (my fault)tickets,it took me till my wife and I had a child in 1982 before I started taking my foot off the gas.I have the best points you can have for insurance so I get the best deals now.I even fasten my seat belt everytime I drive thanks to my daughter's insistance when she first learned to talk.
    Good luck BB,remember that they got you by the short hairs when it comes to following the road rules.

    Thanks gents.

    I leave in 5 minutes. Will let you know how it turns out.

    And imagine, doing 57, in a 45. That is a major speeding violation here.

    In the states it would be a simple ticket, and I'd be done.

    Well reporting live from the testing center. Morning 2 hours, lecture lecture lecture. At lunch now, they have 5 PCs setup so road rule breakers can surf and check email.

    Afternoon session I take a road type test, which is a series of psychological tests that judge my driving type. Also I get to use a driving simulator to judge how well I drive under duress. I am looking forward to that because the guy said it would be better than any game arcade you have been to.

    Well have a good one.

    Well I am back. I got my license back. I had a 40 question test after the driving simulation. It was kind of fun. The car was a Mitsubishi 4 door taxi car that you drove on the simulator. It had seat belts, wipers, headlights, ignition with key (key was tied with a cable to the dash???), they had the choice of manual or automatic. I chose automatic.

    We had 3 minutes of practice time. I drove around the little town, and a lady in the computer would say turn right, turn left, stop here, park here, etc...

    Then I had 4 tests to determine my driving attention span?? or something to that effect. One test I remember clearly was you're at an intersection and a truck on the opposite side of the road facing you flashes his lights for you to make a right turn..

    Well you turn, and then a motorcycle comes zooming around the passenger side of the truck.. and smash.. hits you.. FAILED TEST LOL

    It got me.. I was shocked out of my wits.

    Interesting day to say the least but now I am bushed.. and my poor wife had to go too.. to translate.. I feel sorry for her, so tomorrow I am going to get a dozen roses for her.. and something nice.

    Good job BB less stress now I'll bet.Now all you have to do is put a throttle regulator on the throttle cable and adjust it so it's impossible to speed.

    I'm going to try hard not to get another. That regulator sounds like the best plan..
