I have drawn a line in the sand for The Pony. He WILL get his driver's license. He will NOT put it off any longer. In fact, last week I informed him that he would be taking the written permit test this week. The office is only open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Since I had to go to the doctor today, that means The Pony is being tested TOMORROW.
Of course he put off opening the Driver's Guide until today. While I was gone four hours to the doctor, he was reading the manual and taking two practice tests. Here are the results, straight from The Pony's mouth:
"I took the practice test in the book. I missed four. That's out of 44 questions. Which I think is pretty good. Then I took and online test. I only missed four. Out of 25. Which still gives me an 80-something. They asked how high bumpers can be from the ground! That was nowhere in my book! That's not fair."
"It sounds like you did pretty good. You only have to get a 60 to pass, right?"
"Um. No. You can only miss five. Out of 25. More than that, and you fail. My friend took it seven times."
"We're not going back over there every week! You need to study and take some more practice tests."
"I'll do it tonight. And in the morning, on the way there."
The Pony needs to take this more seriously, methinks.
