My little driver licence

Getting a driver licence is much easier to obtain in the USA than in the Netherlands, where you have take endless lessons to even get the 'right' to ask for an examination. Average time in the Netherlands from day 1 (you first lesson) and your first examination (don't think they let pass you the first time) is 9 months...ufff.
So, I got my driver licence, now in a cute credit card form, last time in Florida.
The problem now, I don't live in the USA anymore, nor in the Netherlands or any other EU country. And my driver licence is expired. And I as a Dutch with an Americam driver licence resides in Turkey, can not renew my American driver licence in a Dutch or American one.
I need a Turkish one! First task is to get my cute little driver licence credit card formmat translated into Turkish...
And I think I have to do a test as well: curious how the instructor drives..))

kathryn merteuil said...

of course! I have had mine for almost 5 years! :)
although I find driving very boring, except autobahn. :)

Hans said...

Exactly, drive in the USA or down under and you will feel the magic feeling..))

you should leave the driving to others . . . especially if you've been drinking . . . instead get a license to kill?

Hans: I offer driving classes, and for you I've got special rates. Then we can get you a fake license at Hollywood, in several states.

Is drunk-drive-drinking still allowed in the OC. Just curious...
And Newport Beach girls? They will beat by Amsterdam, Amalfi beach, Glyfada girls..))
I accept your offer, hope you dont want to marry me right away..))

I was referring to Turkish drivers, who drive like drunks even if they haven't had a drink . . .

As for Newport Beach girls . . . they got class. They cab it everywhere.

Marrying you?? Gay marriage is still illegal here in California. And besides, I am already spoken for and in an arranged situation with my future ex-wife. I just have to find her first . . .

Hans . . .

How long has it been since you left the civilized world anyway?

Metin,
I left my house for 10 minutes, what happened?.))

You should never leave your house when I am in the mood for my obligatory 10 daily comments I have to make as ordered by the courts as part of my 10,000 comments of community service . . . for driving without having had a drink while in Turkey.
