Hey guys. I'm Juliette and welcome to my blog! Woohoo, if you have reached this page it means a) you're lost on the internet and you're asking yourself who the heck is this freak?, b) you'd like to know more about France, exchange year, food, traveling... me, c) are we related? friends maybe?, d) none of the previous answers which can be either good or bad. Anyway, just to summarize the history of this page : I created this blog a long time ago to share my life as an exchange student in America. Now, I write when I feel like it, about whatever I feel like talking about. My life ain't really intresting but we all have our story and here is part of mine. (Also, sometimes I do write about smart stuff you might be intrested in). Check it out and forgive me whenever I sound foolish or when I make mistakes. This is all personal. Love, Juliette

WHAAAAT ! I got my driver licence !

Publié par Juliette K

You know what ?

- I GOT MY DRIVER LICENCE !!!

If you're american you probably don't understand why is it such a big deal, so let me explain. In France, the process to have a driving licence is VERY complicated. It takes approximatly a year !

First, you pass a multiple choice test of 50 questions about security, cars and everything related to the road. To pass, you cannot make more than 5 mistakes.

Then, you have 2 choices :

- you can take about 20 lessons and drive with your parents but you have to make between 1500 and 3000 kilometers and then you can take the driving test (after a couple lessons)

- or, you can take like 30-35 lessons and pass the test right away.

The test last about 35 minutes : you drive during 20-25 minutes in town, then, you have 2 questions about the vehicle and you park the car.

If you haven't drive in Europe you can't understand the struggle it is to turn the right angle and not crash into someone haha jk. The streets aren't straight !

Anyway, I got it and nothing else matter anymore !

Fun fact : In France when we wish someone good luck for an exam or a test we don't say "Good luck" (bonne chance) because we believe it brings bad luck. Instead, we tell them "shit" (merde).

WHAAAAT ! I got my driver licence !WHAAAAT ! I got my driver licence !
