DMV logoToday I got a license. Not for software, but a driver's license. As of today, I am a fully licensed driver in the state of California. As I have mentioned earlier, I had to pass both a written and a driven exam. Today I passed the driven exam and immediately got a temporary license.

My plastic license will be mailed in 10 days, and then I will be just like any American with a Social Security Number, credit and debit card, and a driver's license. I can't vote and don't have a US passport, but then again, most Americans don't vote or have a passport either.


  1. Temp. license immediately?! Plastic in 10 days?!?! Not so in Israel... (and what the hell is a debit card?)

  2. Hmm, having an american credit card doesn't sound like too much fun then.

  3. Many American do not have credit and debit cards not to mention a driver’s license.
    And I guess they all have a social Security Number, but I'm guessing they do not all know it.
    So you seem to be ahead...

  4. All americans know their social security number because they need to put it on every job application and tax form. And almost all americans have credit cards and debit cards. Credit card debt is a big problem in the U.S.

  5. Are you saying that all Americans apply for jobs many times and pay their taxes?
