    I'm taking my driving test today

    I've been practicing driving for a couple months now and have been ready for a while to get my license but wasn't able to get my chair in my car by myself until recently. I figured there wasn't any hurry to get my license until I could figure out how to do that.

    I just hope they don't want to watch me put my chair in my car by myself today because while I can manage to do it, it's still a big struggle. But with practice, I should be able to do it without any problems.

    Putting you chair isn't part of the driving test.

    Good luck!

    Good luck Jim. I hope you do not do like I did. I was so concerned about driving with hand controls that I gave short shrift to the laws, etc. in the manual. I passed the written part by 1 question/answer.

    When I took my test I left the wheelchair behind.

    Can't wait to hear how you did on your test. My son took his driving test in May and he actually enjoyed it. They did not ask him to break down his chair and he was worried about that also.
