Be glad you don’t have to wait long. “Back In The Day” in the late 70’s, the test was given twice a year on the same day of the year in every state. You had to go to the state capitol to take the exam and it took about 6 months to get the results by snail mail!!! Once you heard that results had started arriving you “stalked” the mailbox/man. Rumors would say if you got a large envelope it was the application to retake test and if small envelope it was your license! So since you can get results 3 days after testing and check on line it still is nerve wracking!
