It has been six years since my last Tết (Vietnamese Lunar New Year) celebration in Hanoi as I often traveled in other cities of Vietnam and abroad during the holiday. This year we have a long holiday (9 days) so it is a good chance for our family reunion. I spent the week before Tết learning to drive a car.

Chúc Mừng Năm Mớ
Good luck with your driving lessons, driving in Hanoi would be a real challenge. I have been driving for more than 30 years and I don't think I would be as brave as you. Have a great year of the goat - take care

Happy new year

One driving lesson lasted 5 hours! How many of these lessons do you need to prepare for your driving test?

Driving lessons
It depends. Some people need 10 lessons, others may need 15 until they can drive well on the streets. However, for driving test you only need to go around driving course with very basic requirements.

A good luck wish for the New Year

Good luck!
Good luck in the Year of the Goat and in the year of driving. Driving is so scary when you first learn or when there is a lot of traffic.

I think after that, you can drive with confidence anywhere in the world. Happy New Year with your family!
