In China, during the last decade in the 20th century, there was a voguish saying that people should master three basic and important skills in the 21st century if they want to be talent in the employee market. These three skills are English, computer application and the driving license. It’s true. Especially at that time, few people had these abilities completely. If you master these three skills, you will be special. And obviously, you will be the better choice for the employer.
As for me, I have learned English for many years at school. I also use the computer every day for several years. In other words, I don’t need to worry about the two skills. But I’m strange at driving. I know little about driving a car. At the meantime, I have been dreaming of a driving license of my own for a long time. There were some factors that kept me from going to driving school.
When I graduated from high school, I told Dad that I wanted to get a driving license. But Dad refused my request for I was still young. Then after entering university, I had talked about it for several times. It was still denied. It made me forget things about the driving license for a time.
A week ago, I went home for the winter holidays. When we had supper, Dad talked to me about the driving license. I told him that I wanted to get the driving license as soon as possible. And I said, if possible, I wanted to go to driving school during this winter holidays. To my surprise, this time, Dad agreed. I couldn’t believe my ears at that time. Dad approved of my dream eventually.
Then last Friday, I went to the driving school to sign up, as well as Dad. The fee was a bit high. It took me more than 2000 yuan. But it’s worth doing this.
In the afternoon of that day, I began to drive the jeep under the instruction of a coach. It’s the first time that I have driven a vehicle formally. I drove it for some laps. The coach told me the positions of clutch, brake and throttle. And I also tried the steering wheel. I found that shifting the gear completely well was somewhat difficult. That’s a big problem and it puzzles every rookie. I know I must work hard.
So that’s my first day at driving school. Because of the snowy weather, it’s impossible to start the engine and carry through the exercise. I haven’t gone to driving school once more after that afternoon. Unfortunately, it will continue snowing in the following few days. When will my second day be?
