How does a 35-year-old not have a driving license in this day and age? Believe it or not, I didn’t have one till now. What’s worse is that it was my new year resolution in 2008 to get one and I managed to get around to it only in 2022. Can I nominate myself for the procrastinator of the century award yet?
I knew how to ride a bike since I was 15 years old, but I could never apply for a license since I never stayed in a city for three years. Or in another scenario, I did not have an address proof for all three years I spent in the city. What a mess.
The good part is I made the application for my driver’s license last year and applied via a driving school in Mumbai. The learner’s test process was so simple and smooth that I wondered why I had never done it earlier; address proof issues aside.
The same could be said about the driving test as well. And here we are, two weeks later and I have the digital version of the license available with the smart card version on its way!
PS: I am now going through old resolutions and trying to pick up items that are yet to be done that could still benefit me.
