Thoughts About Learning to Drive and Passing the Driving Test

The only problem is "I think I'm scared to drive." I have dreamed before that I am driving my own car. But that was just a dream. Anyway, I would have to deal with that fear when I have to cross that bridge.
As a prelude, I have looked online for information on how I would go about learning to drive. I came across this blog post "How to Get Your Philippine Driver's License" and Nato Reyes, the author, narrated step by step how he got his driver's license. It was really helpful. I learned from his post that I have to
Get a student permit first then practice driving.
After one month of practice driving, I can already get a non-professional driver's license at the LTO (Land Transportation Office), For this, I need to go through a one-day process of having
- a drug test and medical test
- review and take the written driving test (He said this was easy, so no worries.)
- take the practical driving exam
Oh, well. It is still a long while before we get to know if indeed I would need to learn to drive. I wish I could practice driving now, but women aren't allowed to drive here. If it was allowed, I would have probably learned how to drive a long time ago.
How about you? Do you know how to drive? What was your experience in securing your driver's license?
