Congratulations! Now assume that all other drivers on the road are going to make a big mistake.

Thanks to everyone who posted! To answer a few of the questions, I have talked with my agent about everything and I got it covered accordingly.

Also I had to go to AAA because thats where I got the truck registered and license plates ect..

I've had mine for 2 years, and had it suspended for almost half of that....All for speeding to much...Don't abuse it like i did. Luckily i have a good friend willing to drive me around and help.....Only a little less then 3 months until i get mine back Besides that i love the truck. I had a 96 dakota and loved it. What motor does yours have? Unless i missed that somewhere.

Yeah but its my fault. My excuse is that my steal toe boots weigh so much more and push down on the peddle. My parents dont find that too funny.lol. And does it get pretty good gas? I had a 3.9 v6 in mine and i loved everything about it!

Be safe/don't do anything stupid. When I was young, I once tried a Dukes of Hazard slide into my road (right turn). Didn't work out too well ;-) Seriously, just take it easy until you get plenty of miles and different driving conditions under your belt. Otherwise, have fun and enjoy your new freedom.
