  1. Massive congrats on passing your theory test, you’re so so close to being a legit motorist.
  2. Well done on passing your theory test, you’ve proved you can remember stuff, and now it’s about putting it into practice!
  3. Congrats, step 1 is done, now we’re onto the actual hard part… getting behind the wheel! Good luck with that.
  4. Look at you, I know you were more nervous about the test part than the practical part of heading out onto the road. Almost there!

  6. We all knew you’d pass and can’t wait until you finally get your practical out of the way so we can ask you for lifts everywhere all the time.
