You will. I also failed on my first driving test but managed the second.

I only know one person who passed their first in-vehicle driving test. Good for you for going for the test in the first place, I'm sure you'll pass soon.

What do they say ?"If you fall off a horse the best thing to do is get back on again".

Hmm undue hesitation at junctions that seems unfair. By you hesitating were you
endangering anybody or simply holding up traffic? Its like I never heard a cop give
a ticket for that.

I'm sorry you failed your test. I bet you'll pass when you do it next time though. Try try and try again :)

Good luck for when you retake it.

Undue hesitation is doublespeak for "overly cautious." Wrecks fund the driving instructor's paycheck.

Trying to go forward in neutral sounds like you were kind of nervous.

Do take it over...

I passed the first time I took it, though I really should not have. I think I was passed because I was on a stick shift and the instructor assumed I had never driven a stick shift before :lol:.

I think there is a degree of randomness in their judgements.

I'm so sorry. I failed mine the first time, too. I got a little more practice with my dad because my instructor was horrible, though, and passed 6 months later. I know it seems like the end of the world right now, but you'll get through it. Good luck on the re-test!!

He kept wafting his arms around. Scared me. Thought he was going to hit me.

:(

I passed first time; I thought that I did a text book example of perfect driving. The instructor had other ideas, he put me down for 2 miners: inappropriate use of speed and speeding.

At the end he smiled and said I have passed, I felt like saying “I know that mother f****r why you marked me down with 2 minors, I know people you! It is because I is black”

I failed first time I think there is a certian amount of luck involved, what route he chooses, what other cars are doing on the day. On my first test it was snowing and icy, I made quite a few mistakes!! I had a couple more lessons and got it second time round, got a friendlier examiner too.

Damn...sorry Hyper.
If it helps any, it took me 3 tries to get mine the first time around.

It took me 4 times to pass, and I got my license at the age of 21.
