I passed it on my first try. Except I made an aggressive move and cut someone off. The examiner wasn't too pleased, but I still passed.

Five. I cut someone off at an uncontrolled intersection on my passing attempt, but the instructor passed me anyway on the grounds that "a lot of people do not yield to the right of way" on that one particular intersection and "I've learned enough from previous mistakes." So, a pity pass really. But, I have a +4 safety rating, so **** tha hataz.

One try. If you need more than two, you shouldn't be allowed to drive.


The test is different in the UK, and it's a lot lot lot harder.

I took 3 times.

The first time I failed for pulling out at a junction without looking (petrified with nerves)

The second time I was so filled with fear I completely forgot how to park and fucked it up then had a panic attack about it, meaning I managed to fail the test before I'd even left the test centre car park.

Third time, a week before the test I went to the doctor and got a prescription of beta blockers. Sailed through it with no nerves at all

One try, and the theory in one try as well, here in 90% of the tests you don't even have to park lol, I never met someone who had to park in his test.

Well at the end of the test you have to stop the car, it's not really parking you just stop the car near the sidewalk no reverse no anything.

Really?

In the UK the test is 40 minutes long, and you have to experience several different kinds of roads and conditions. You have to do 2 manoeuvres, which can be anything out of reverse bay parking, reverse parallel parking, 3 point turn, or reversing around a corner. You could also have to do an emergency stop. You also must answer on-the-spot questions about the car you're driving.

You then have to be given directions to a location 10 minutes away and drive there without directional instructions.


If you do any tiny little thing wrong on any of that you will fail. An example of something you can fail on is changing lanes without looking in all of your mirrors, not moving over to the left on a multiple-lane road, pulling away without looking in your rear blind spots (??), not checking all your mirrors before indicating, going too slow for the road, going too fast for the road, being in an inappropriate gear, coasting, failing the questions about the car, and hesitating when pulling out at a junction or roundabout.


The first-time pass rate here is really low. Only about 30% pass first time.
#21
5 lol. I'm a better driver than any of my friends though. The first time I took it I wasn't ready at all but my instructor insisted on it. :/

I also fucking hated driving lessons, and driving in general until I actually passed.

I failed my second test though, for not changing lanes when there was a truck about 7 feet behind me in the lane I wanted.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?
Who am I? I'm a titan so be expectin' a clash.

One despite speeding in a school zone... should have been an auto-fail right there but I somehow BS'd the administrator into passing me...

I feel bad for you UK, here the test is 15 mins long, if you are stuck in traffic for 15 mins the test is over, he will have to pass or fail you over the 10 ft you drove into the traffic jam.

Over here I did mine in about 5 minutes

Down the road, turn, turn again, 3 point turn, turn into a commuter lot, park, back to start.

Sounds like my test, except for that last part. There is a military base near by so most people don't know the area to do something like that.

Yeah but your test includes manning a rocket-launcher (and taking out Palestinians with it) while driving.

Perfect score on my first try

Just do some practicing beforehand if you're nervous about anything, and brush up on your parallel parks (or any other techniques you find difficult) the day before. If possible, practice with the vehicle you'll be taking the test in.

Question, here after you pass the test you have a 3 month period where you are forced to drive with an escort, do other countries have that as well?

Here in Florida at least, you get a driver's permit when you're 15 and you have to drive with someone over 21. Once you're 16 you get your license and don't need anyone to accompany you.

AFter you pass the test no. Once you pass the test you're unrestricted as far as regular consumer vehicles go.
