Okay, don't make fun! But I am 21 years old and I still don't have my license. I don't know the first thing about driving.
I have been on and off studying the drivers book since I was 17. I took the permit test twice at age 17 and failed both times. The second time I failed the test I came 1 question away from passing. Now that was a pain in my ass.
I haven't lived at home with my parents since I was 18. I've been living with my boyfriend for the past couple of years and he's been taking care of me. But I'm tired of being so dependent on him for everything. If something happened to him I would lose everything, my home, the food in my tummy, EVERYTHING. I really want to get my license so I can get my own car and real job. Though I hate working at grocery stores its my only bet, plus I want to go back to college and finish my AA.
But everything I want to do requires a license and a vehicle. And no my boyfriend can't drive me every where. He has recently run out of unemployment and is looking for work. So I he won't be able to take me to school or work.
Now here is my problem. I can NOT read that stupid book. Everything I read is in one ear and out the other. I have tried several times throughout this year to read that stupid P.O.S. book and I can't do it. I've read sentences over about a million times. I've gone through the entire book and realized when I was finished that my mind was off in lala land the entire time. That book is worthless to me.
I've tried making flash cards and studying those. I've tried several different practice tests online. I've tried eating the book and pooping out driving knowledge. I've tried everything.
I don't know what to do. I don't know whats wrong with me. I've had this issue in school before, I just can't pay attention. Maybe I have A.D.D. maybe its because I'm O.C.D. and I think every little word must be memorized or else I won't pass. I don't know.
Since I don't have a job because I don't have a car, because I don't have a license I can't afford to take Drivers Ed even though that would be the best bet for me.
I have no one to borrow money from to take the drivers ed class because everyone I know is out of work and struggling as it is.
Any thoughts? I just don't know what to do and obviously asking you guys was my last resort since I don't like pushing my problems on others. So I'm sorry for spilling my embarrassing guts out to you and asking for help but as you can see, I really need it.
