So today, I braved 3 hours of public transportation to take my UK driving theory test in Watford. It was definitely as easy as the first time I took a written driving test, although this time there was a video portion.
They called it "Hazard Perception", and it's actually a pretty good idea. You're given a bunch of videos and you have to click the screen when you see a hazard developing and when it gets in your way and have to stop or slow down. It's not the easiest thing ever, but I passed it.
Now on to the practical driving test! Hopefully I'll be able to pass that sooner than later and buy a car before my first placement at the end of March.
