Thanks guys,
I have been fearing it all the time, and drove without L plates for four years lucky I was never stopped for licence as I would have been done for driving unacompanied, by a full licenced passenger,
I was shocked I had passed because I didn't take any lessons since 2009 and I only applied for my test as my provisional was due for renewal and I was required to provide proof of sitting a test before they would issue a new permit,
So I went yesterday un prepared as I had applied for the test only to renew my permit,
Complete shocker when he says "you passed"

As you all know; I'm very fond of cars and styling, I should have applied for my test prior to modification as I felt it would impact the testers perception of me as a driver.
Then my obcession for mods grew on the focus , so the comfort in applying for test grew more daunting,

I went in to reception yesterday and they asked what car do you drive?
I said ford focus,
Then when the tester brought me out he says "This Focus? With the stripes, I've never done a test in an ST before"
Lol I was going to say "me neither" but didn't want to be a smart !Removed!, should have saw his shocked face walking around the car with L plates on and a mountune performance badge on the rear, boost pod in the dash he asks me "what's that gauge for" I said "eh boost"
He then got me to open the bonnet and show where brake fluid, oil and coolant goes, and says "ow its a diesel ah ok"
Lmao top fella though I've passed.

All mods declared to insurance my premium was 1,785.57euro and that's with 4yrs no claims so expecting a reduction now,
Maybe look in to a Mk1 RS early next year bwaaam pfff dow dow dow!! :)

Thanks clive mate,
I was wondering what your response would be lol

My favourite tune was "Chase&Status ft. Liam Bailey " - Blind Faith

Although the song is about warehouse partys and XTC I don't support that side of it or the heart fibrillation base beat lol
It related to me investing so much in to my motor and driving it on blind faith, if caught and lost permit perhaps banned from driving, it would be a cruel waste driving alone was one big tempt faith,
But it always gave me that sweeeet sensation.
