Yes (you're not having dejavu), I did take the test a couple weeks ago, and unfortunately, had to put my tail between my legs and leave the DMV as embarrassed as heck...because I didn't pass the renewal test! I missed five, when you can only miss three.
I was SUPER DUPER embarrassed and upset!!
So I read that DMV handbook from cover to cover (literally) and today, my husband happened to be home long enough for me to give is another shot.
I was sweating bullets, as the lady behind the desk was grading it (felt like the 15 year old who didn't pass her permit test the first time...) and PRAISE THE LORD...I only missed one!
It's official! My license will come in the mail and the number is the same as it was the day I got my license when I turned 16.
It feels GOOD to be officially a CALIFORNIA again!
