Pop Quiz: Drivers Ed Refresher!

November 2, 2014
There’s nothing like the memory of your first car, your first drive alone in that car, and your first time behind the wheel with a car full of friends! But do any of you have fond memories of your drivers ed class and test? I sure don’t! Drivers ed was terribly boring and I remember wondering if I’d ever make it through to the other side. There’s so much riding on that little test! Now that it’s been more than a decade since that test, I wondered whether or not I could pass the test again today.
