Great news! I can officially drive in Vietnam. Yes, I know what you're saying: "Ben, you've been driving in Vietnam for 9 months." Well, yes, that's true. I've been driving/riding a motorbike since the first week I arrived in Hanoi. However, this license allows me to drive a car! I can now rent a car and drive it to my heart's content. That said, I haven't seen any car rental places in Hanoi.
As far as my motorbike license goes...well, I still don't have that one. When I get back from my vacation I have to take a police physical and then take the road test (which I will drive to without a license).
