I've been attempting my driving test for years and, after 11 attempts, I decided to give up and try to ride the motorbike instead...

Only to find out it's just as bloody difficult! Gutted.

I had my first motorbike test today and it was disastrous. I went out in a little "convoy", but ended up losing my tutor and getting totally and utterly lost.

Went down a junction following some signs and ended up on a motorway, had no idea what I was doing and ended up pulling over on the hard shoulder and ringing my Dad who came to pick me up.

The annoying thing is that I'm a pretty good driver/cycler but just RUBBISH at tests, always have been ever since I flunked school and even failed my Grade 1 guitar test (actually dropped my guitar on the floor!)

Anyone else have these kinda problems with tests?

I failed the written exam 5 times. Passed the 6th. ^^

The driving test was easy though.

Really though, not much offense intended, but I you fail 10+ times it's pretty clear you're not understanding the picture and should not be allowed to drive for like 5 years atleast.
Bad at testing means nothing, if you get so anxious that you fail because someone is watching how you drive and judging it, you're not fit to drive and are a danger to others if you try.
It's over simplified, So what!

Very, very well done, and thanks for sharing with the group.

I get the picture, it's just driving around, keeping your car in the white lines n that. I fail for stupid things like going over speed bumps fast, splashing people, not giving way, not giving enough braking distance to other cars, etc. Hardly a cardinal sin. I think 5 years is a bit harsh.

I don't lack modesty.

It's not arrogance if you're confident.

Oh, and add confidence to the list of reasons why I am better than you.
ayy lmao

Aight, well hook us up with some pics and links to your music so we can judge your looks, rocking abs and musical ability.

I think you've already failed the personality test when you said "wow... much test"

that's all reason enough to fail someone, other than being a total dick, it's also reckless

5 years to think about your arrogant behaviour on the road seems fair enough to me

He was being humble, he's actually a god but never wants to show it off

He has a golden toilet in which he shits in. When he flushes the shit gets processed into food for starving africans.

He deserves the nobel prize ffs.

See this?

There's 3 people in this thread who currently think I'm awesome. That's not even including myself.

Edit: Make it four now ^
ayy lmao

Nah, I'm pretty good at tests, I get by on natural bullshitting ability. I haven't even tried for my license cuz it's too expensive, and all motorcyclists here told me not to bother since it's dangerous. Since I can't afford a car OR a driver's license, I guess I already failed.


So don't worry, public transport is not so bad.

There's a reason why these tests exist. You shouldn't be driving or cycling. You'll be great at riding shotgun though, I'm sure.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Excuse me if I'm not hugely impressed that people on the Ultimate Guitar message board think you're "awesome".

Saying "I'm better than you" behind the comfort of your keyboard in your bedroom is all well and good, but where are these links?

The community of ultimate guitar's opinion is highly influential in many aspects of the world.

They just started funding the orphanage for under-privileged privileged orphans.

Their opinion matters.

All except speedbumps, if you're in the car alone and it's your car, are actually really uncool. Do you only do these on tests but never otherwise?
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.
