    Doing The Driving Test For The First Time

    I've been driving for a year and two months now. My first instructor had a tendency to yell at me. I didn't know why I was always stalling at a junction. He kept asking me "What did you do wrong there?" I stuck with him until December and he didn't call me back after that...

    Wrong Way Driver- Oh My!

    Soo.. Today I took the driving road test for the first time today. I did everything really well! I parallel parked, did a turn about, and everything! It was going good until the last turn of the test. Somehow, I turned too sharp in front of the median, and I turned onto the left...

    Why Are Cars So Important?

    I thought I wouldn't like driving since my coordination sucks. I only learned to ride a bike at age 9 and tied my shoelaces at age 10. I actually liked driving but I failed today since I couldn't reverse park or parallel park well enough, which I honestly never took to practicing...

    Yeah I failed my drivers test twice

    before I passed. And keep in mind that the third time I only passed because the lady testing me was the chillest person ever and felt bad for me. To whoever failed their drivers test, don't worry. It'll come eventually. Whether you fail twenty times or not, as long as you...

    But I've only failed it once so far. I take is again on Sept. 18th. Why bother saying this? Because I need more experiences for my profile and I figure that at least one of these experiences should have a story... at least on my first day here.

    It Was My Fault, Simple As That!

    i drove straight through an unmarked croos road which is an automatic failure, fair enough! thing is, if an unmarked crossroad is so dangerous, why don't the council just mark them! it wasn't like i was driving in the middle of no-where! i was driving through a housing estate...

    Driving Anxiety- A Story Of Success And Failure

    When I took the driving test for the first time, I was so nervous that I couldnt focus. The DPS officer I was with failed me because I was speeding without realizing it. I was heartbroken. Admittedly I cried. The second time I went, I prayed. I had a theory(I am interested in...

    My Test

    When I was 18, you had to take the written exam in front of a DMV worker. They would ask you the questions and you would have to answer them . The lady that stood before me was awful. She was mean and very impatient. I remember her asking me about a symbol for a road sign (To...

    I actually was not nervous

    until I saw the lady that was testing me. She was a big woman that did not speak proper English. She automatically started to talk to me in Spanish and I replied to her with 'I'm sorry?' And then the first thing she tells me is 'there is no reason to be nervous, we came here to...

    You Can Read My Blog From Sept. 22nd If You're Interested In It..

    if not, here's a short version: My biggest mistake was that curbstone. (While parking in) A friend of mine ignored a person that wanted to cross the street (and you have to let them pass in Austria, when they use the zebra), and didn't stop at a stop sign and got the license...

    Three times but today it turned out fourth time

    was the charm. The first time, I was just plain unprepared and didn't really want to drive. The road they did my driver's test is very quiet and low traffic but I still somehow managed to cut off an oncoming vehicle coming onto the road. The second time, the instructor was...

    Paranoid Much?

    So apparantly, when you come across train tracks (with traffic lights), you're supposed to stop the car, get out, look both ways, put your ear to the ground to listen for approaching trains, and then drive over the tracks at half a mile an hour. I'm only slightly bitter about...

    One Minor Fault is actually Four!

    Driving too fast? Fault. Driving too slow? Fault. Driving any way that could possibly cause some kind of inconvenience to anyone, even if it is just hypothetically? Fault. What happens is they get you to read a licence plate and that's fine, they'll ask you a question...

    I took my drive test today.

    Here where I live, you have to do everything right especially parking and going reversing/backwards. I was doing everything fine even though my examinator was the worse, he basically fails almost everyone and he was making up thing (like not paying attention to the other cars) I...

    I took my divers test literally 20 minutes ago

    and I failed. I feel horrible even though my Procter was some what of a ****. I'm not saying I should have passed based on my performance but I was nervous as hell and was like having a mini panic attack inside.

    So Close...

    I took my driving test this morning, after more lessons than I care to remember. It was going so well at first and I was genuinely confident that I could pass it, which is unusual for me. However, last week I was hit from behind at a roundabout and I am still uncertain at busy...
