While I was staying at my Aunt’s place, I could claim that I was ‘visiting family’ and that I wasn’t really a resident yet. I could use my Victorian license to drive. Once I moved out, I had to get a WA state license.

  1. Pre-apply online
  2. Pass a knowledge test
  3. Pass a driving skills test
  4. Visit a driver licensing office

I did all of that today. The written test was stupidly simple. I was done in 10 minutes and aced it. I took a drive test straight away, and passed. I rocked up at the department of licensing, expecting a long wait. My ticket was called as soon as it was printed out. I had my photo taken immediately, and I was in and out in about ten minutes. That is probably some kind of world record.

I’m now officially a resident of Washington state, and I’m enrolled to vote. I’m politically empowered as a citizen of the United States. It’s exciting because there’ll be midterm elections in November.
