well.............................................

I failed again... but it's not all bad

I failed when I had to take an exit of a highway...... I slowed too much before I got on the slip road/exit ramp

but otherwise I did a near perfect turn in the road and pulled to the side of the road numerous times with success, pulling away as well with ease, and back at the test centre, a near perfect reverse into a parking bay :)

so my first test there was a lot of severe and dangerous faults on the report.... because of nerves.. but this time round I only had one severe.. which was the fail (one severe or dangerous is a fail)

has I checked the speed I wouldn't have slowed as much and would have passed :)
I know what to do next time :)

Ironically I had the same examiner as my first test, wasn't expecting that.. lol

so... Third time lucky :D

I was very nervous for my test, but fortunately I passed. Wheeww, I was more relieved than happy...

My mom told me this story (I dont know whether she was just joking or not) , but she told me one of her father's cousin's failled his test over 20 times and that after that he just started driving without a license. :lol: Apparently he was so old that everyone assumed he must have a legitimate license.

Good luck, let's hope it's third time lucky :)

When I first took my driving test, I failed twice before finally getting it. On the third try, I went to a different testing station, that was in a quieter neighborhood, and not during rush hour time.

Don't worry, you'll get it your third try! That's what happened to me. My first driving test was absolutely horrible (I didn't know where anything was on that side of town, my window other window got stuck open, and my instructer got hailed on... I failed big time). The second time, I got a really nice instructor but I was scared to death and I kept messing up all the easy stuff. The third time, I had the same instructor and went the same route and pwnd. 8)

Better luck next time.Took me 4 attempts.
You've got a bit of experience now so if you just concentrate as much as you can on the
driving itself and don't be distracted too much by it being a test,you'll have a good chance.

I don't know if this had been the case in other American states or countries, but in Massachusetts the state troopers (police officers) had been monitoring the road tests until 2007.

dont worry it took me two attempts to pass and a lot of attempts on the theory tests (learners 4th go) and hazard perception test (5th go) it is important to keep persisting and you will get there.
