One “Ge” (Of) Person (Who Does) Not Like Driving-Vehicle

I am one “ge” (of) person (that does) not like driving-vehicle. I still remember (at the) time (of) attending college-3rd-grade or college-4th-grade, (my) classmates all started to learn (driving-)vehicle, for (in the) future finding (a) job to prepare. Classmates (that I) learned (driving-)vehicle together all very quick “soon” learned-(with the result of)-knowing-how-to-(do it), (and) took-test-(with the result of)-passing. But (how about) me? I learned (for) very long, probably “reaching the evaluation of) almost one year, after-that “as late as” (I) taking-test (for) three times (then) I took-test-(with the result of)-passing. Furthermore I am that type (of) person (that when) driving-vehicle often go-(with the result of)-(going)-wrong (the) road(/direction). (In the) city-inside (of where) I live (my)self, every time (in the) time (that is) before going to one “ge” (of) place, I always need-to first (-) “ba”{indicating the handling of} (the) map there (-) look-at “really quick”, to see clearly (and) also remember clear, (and) “as late as” (that I) will start to towards there go. Though now (on the) phone, (and) vehicle (there) both exists (a) map, but I especially am-not-used to drive-vehicle while reading (the) map, so (what) I the-most fear “exactly” is(,) in cities (that I have) not gone(/been to,) driving (a) vehicle. But sometimes (the) company wants to make me to arrive othr cities to go-on-business-trips, (does) there exists “any” method? I only can “as soon as” arriving there first spend “a little bit” (of) time to read (the) map, (and) “as late as” after-that (I) sit-into (a) vehicle-inside. Additionally (what) the-most funny (one there) exists is (that), other people(, while) driving-vehicle all the-most hate having-(a)- traffic-jam, right? Me? I “exactly” like having-(a)- traffic-jam, because “immediately after” having-(a)- traffic-jam, I then can sit (in the) vehicle-inside moreover read “really quick” (the) map, (in) this-manner “then” (I will) not fear to go-(with the result of)-(going)-wrong (the) road(/direction).
