    Driving Test 2nd attempt lol

    I retake my driving test for the 2nd time this Saturday.

    I failed the first one last week(Wednesday).
    Got 9 minors and 1 serious.

    Serious was because i took a corner to sharply and crossed over the white line in to a 2nd lane on my side of the road(No other cars or vehicles around).

    I thought I was bit unlucky not to get minor for that.

    Wasn't bothered about failing not bothered about the 2nd attempt either, Just the fact i failed on something so stupid(which i didn't realize, so i thought i was in with good chance of passing), I would have rather failed by hitting the curb or something that i realized and knew it was completely thick and stupid.


    Anywho 2nd attempt saturday, the suspense of having my new red mk5 3 door sports hatch astra sxi that is 2 months old, sitting in my drive way and not being able to jump in it when ever i want is killing me. I still drive it form time to time as i have fully comp insurence just need a friend or family member with more than 2-3yrs drivig experience.

    The thought of jumping in it leaving for work at 8:30 arriving @ 9.(instead of getting up at 6 leaving @ 6:50 getting to work at 8:30) then leaving work @ 5 getting home at 5:30 and not 6:30.

    Long story just bored lol thought i'd let you folks know, lots people don't mention doing therre test i been telling everyone mainly because i'm not bothered about failing, you fail you fail, just do it to you get lucky or nice instructor that lets you of for simple mistakes.

    i only passed 2 months ago, on my second attempt. so know how you feel.

    except i left a gap of 1 year between attempting it again i drove like absolute rubbish on my test, was so nervous i was a wreck, had 13 minors!!
    there was a lot riding on it for me and failing wasnt really an option, so glad that i scraped through!

    nice first set of wheels,i was pleased as hell when i went to pick up my mk4 sxi


    oh,one more thing, good luck!

    good luck,
    took me three attempts , first went 43 in a 40, second when doing a three point turn someone stopped and flashed to to let me go, so i didnt look in that direction before i pulled off (because i knew he was there stopped) other than that only got 1 minor in each

    lol annoying. i wasnt really nervous. you that concentrated on doing so many things like look in 10 directions before you take of from being stopped etc. you forget some other stuff.

    great stuff, 40mins fly's in to.

    the first thing i had to do was reverse in to parking space before i left thetest centre lol would of been funny if i messed tht up test over before its practically started lol

    i reckon its stupid, because nobodys drives on how they were taught by their instructer,
    if you did it how your meant too 24/7 you would end up making more mistakes.... its just too many things to do at once lol!!
    but good luck on your test tho

    I passed first time with only 1 minor. Sorry but I did.

    I don't drive like that anymore though. (sheepish look)
