Reading through the list of latest posts this one caught my eye saying Started by Lenny

 

I thought not THE Lenny surely this is a joke.

May well be, get the kettle on lad.
I'm currently in Belfast as part of the G8 Policing contingent.
Been following protesters around all day and still won't be off duty until 2am.
If i get a few hours i reckon a skip over the border might be in order ;)

If I had the diesel id drive up to you with a flask of tea and sandwitches for you and your chums :)
Licence is costing me a total of 80euro on fees but will last me 10 years so worth it in the long run.
I'm 5hrs drive away from belfast although my mother is only 2hrs away from you, she's an excellent cook.

For Real Pharrell lol thanks Chris sorry for the shock mate,
Ive always felt that the driving instructers and the tester fella were working togeather, I was under the empression that you need to feed the instructor with money for lessons then he will acompany you on the day of your test and give the nod to the tester.
So buying a mod for the focus and creating a guide always seemed more appealing to me rather than feeding an instructor.
The time passed and I began to fear the test and thought id be sure to fail because of the way the car now looks.
I've never lied to you guys on anything, I just never mentioned licence, I've always had tax and insurance but was only insured when the missus was either in passenger seat or driving,
That's also why she came to ford fair as I couldn't have driven in uk at all
But its all cool now lol

not cool driving around unlicensed,and un insured,
 
but well done for now becomming legal.

 
I agree with you 100%
And I don't intend this thread to promote my previous history of it,
I always made efforts to drive with an insured driver in the passenger seat making me 100% compliant,
The only times I drove alone was on journeys to and from work, I would avoid driving around on weekends and never paraid around town with the windows down and base thumping lol

That has to be red stilettos!!

And Uk size 12 ;)

Jaysus that's a bit much mate,
My insurance is set to drop now when I tell them I've got a full licence,
Mine dropped a bit when I put the missus as a named driver on it, weird I know
Perhaps try putting a named driver on yours for a reduction.

Congratulations Lenny. It's tough here just getting a test date.

 

You insurance will definitely drop. Btw, who are you insured with?

an input from a new-ish driver:

i passed 2 yr ago and it put my insurance up! as far as insurance cares, you're still an inexperienced driver - the only difference is that theres no one watching you anymore lol

 

and thats nothing personal, i know you've been driving ages - but it applies to the large majority of people who are newly passed, therefore applies to insurance

 

But still, well done mate! its a nervous time around the test! :P
