It goes back to Monday, December 9th. As I am getting my documents ready to get the license, I can't find my Social Security card (required where I live). Turns out when my brother was getting his driver's license 4 years ago, he ended losing not only his, but mine too.
So we need to send an application to the social security office to get another one. It arrived last tuesday, on the 17th, though both of my parents were gone on business until the night of the following thursday. So when they get back, it turns out that nobody can take me to the DPS on the friday, so that sucks.
So now as I am getting everything together, and checking on the website, it turns out that all license offices are closed until friday, the 27th.
This also sucks massively because my Verification of Enrollment expires before friday, so now I have to wait until January 7th to apply for a new one at my school.
Get your learners at 16 here and if you're a resident of NSW you can get your P's (Provisional license) at the age of 17 meaning you can drive alone.
And the test here to get your learners is so stupid it's not funny.
