Having passed my test a couple of weeks ago it's taken me ages to actually want to drive a car on my own. I didn't do it at all until nearly a week after my test and even then, for the first few times I felt a bit naughty - like I shouldn't be doing it and no-one else on the road knew. I sat behind the wheel almost waiting for someone to stop me and expose me as a fake driver. It didn't feel very real!
But, ladies and gentlemen of the Midlands, tonight on the way home, I felt like a proper driver for the first time. Stay in your houses - the roads are no longer safe!
