Actual Transcription:

On Saturdays, I am going to driving school because I want to get my license as soon as possible. During the class, we learn about the rules of the road, watch videos on traffic safety and defensive driving, and learn how to drive in different weather conditions. We also go out on the roads with the instructor and practice our driving skills. I am a little nervous because I do not want to get in an accident, and I do not want to get a ticket for not following the rules. I have to take the driving test next week, and I hope I can pass the first time.
