Prayers that the way you drive a vehicle with the examiner next to you will be the way you drive after you get your license!

O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

Prayers that you'll pass, but even more prayers that you won't drive like I did (when I was an 18 year old)!  The guy who granted me a license should be sent to an Iranian prison!

Turn your right foot at a 90 degree angle such that the heel of your right foot is on the brake pedal, and the top of your right foot is placed on the accelerator. Then, put the clutch in with your left foot, and push down with your right foot on the brakes and the accelerator simultaneously, revving the engine to approximately 5000 rpm and then...

Hmmm nah, I won’t corrupt you ;); I’m sure you don’t want to destroy your car like that anyway. Be safe. I’ve learnt from my mistakes (and thank God I’ve survived those mistakes in order to learn from them) - may you learn not to make any in the first place.

Best of luck with the exam, rabena ma'ak,

Peace.

thanks everyone for your prayers. I passed!!! hooray for me. lol

EA, I never knew you werel ike this...shaking my head....so then u should have no problem with being late for class or liturgies. Since your driving is up to par, you are disqualified to have the excuse Egyptian timing or SET (Standard Egyptian timing which basically means you are 2 hours behind everything). With greek timing it can be worse...you're either 45 minutes behind or u don't show up at all!

I was soo shocked when he told me i passed. i was like huh? lol. Now, i just have to find a part time job so i can convince my parents to let me have insurance..ahh.

Timos,

I'm never late for Liturgy! My abouna would slaughter me, especially because i'm a deacon...but yeah, S.E.T. applies to everything else, ofcourse.

Congratulations on passing; buckle up, two hands on the steering wheel (unless you're driving manual ofcourse), drop the sunglasses on a cloudy day, leave the leather jacket at home, disable your middle finger, and....you'll be fine ;)

On a more serious note, put lots of icons in your car, start your day off with church hymns, and get your priest to bless it with water if he can; theyre the things I attribute to my miraculous survival of some unfortunate events. Be safe, and rabena ma'ak.

Peace.
