This is going to be my 3rd attempt at getting my drivers license today. Each time I failed last time was because of totally different things so I think I've got it this time. I'm not even a bad driver, I've got my parallel parking and K-turn down perfectly.

Anything I can do to help pass? Not like "Pay attention to the road", but buying the instructor chocolate or something?

I passed my 3rd time, just drive like an old lady but not too old because, well ... there is a minimum speed.

just chat to your instructor...

actually strike that,

sus out your instructor first, if he/she seems like an approachable nice person, then chat etc.

if they look like an absolute car nazi, shut the hell up and focus on the road.

The mean ones hate people with spirit so act like a gargoyle and drive well and you will win the game.

apart from that, don't pre-empt your tester, always ask questions when you're not 100%, he says "turn left" you confirm with "left here?" seriously, let them know you're listening...

and of course,


DON'T FÜCKING CRASH!

Awesome Edit: I passed first time using my guidelines

Oh, and pay close attention to speed limit signs. I failed my first test because I was in a school zone and the limit was 40 instead of 50. I didn't notice the sign and went 50 and speeding is an automatic fail.

Good luck - I've still gotta do my theory lol.

Just stay calm and remember everything that your driving instructor has told you - remember, MSM - Mirrors, signal, manouvre

Everyone who is taking a road test today, listen up. If you get into a wreck, the instructor is responsible. Take advantage of that, and enjoy.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Thank you for the heads up. What time are you guys going out? I'll make sure to stay off the road for a bit.
Oh and good luck.

don't make any sudden moves and don't do anything you don't have to do... that kind of stuff usually worries the examiner

when i took the test it felt like i had butterflies and meal worms in my belly... i was really nervous. anyway, good luck

i only just failed my first one because i was too "hesitant" (ie, i didn't want to get smashed by a massive 4x4 at traffic lights, which the instructor conveniently failed to notice), and i failed my second one because i was just having a crappy day in general. i didn't sleep, i was exhausted from walking miles the day before, i had period pain, the sun was really low and bright in the sky following a massive rainfall, and i had a really creepy, mean instructor.

so i need to book a third one soon. hopefully it'll be third time lucky

Undue hesitation is only a minor and you're allowed 15 of - how many times did you hesitate? lol

no no, it wasn't undue hesitation, this is what he told me afterwards lol

he basically failed me because some guy cut me up at traffic lights, and rather than keep going and get my car smashed up, i stopped and let the guy go. i mean, to be fair, there wasn't anything else i could do, but the examiner was rather...reckless.

Eat a large breakfast consisting of boiled eggs, cabbage, cheese, and some diced broccoli. You'll get your license in 5 minutes, guaranteed.

i passed second time.

the first time i was ridiculously nervous, so yeah i blame that. the second time felt like a drive, not a test. i remember feeling no pressure, no nerves, and i only got 5 minors and 1 was for steering one handed soo yeah. also, during my second test i didn't get asked to do an emergency stop, which i only realised like 3 days afterwards when people asked me what i'd done.

On topic: I've got my test in 2 weeks, pretty nervous about it. My mate took his today, but he failed. Apparently he pulled onto a roundabout too soon. Pretty worried because he's a better driver than me and he failed :S.

TS: How much do driving tests cost in the US? Because three attempts would cost £150 over here- the equivalent of over $300.

Failed my first because I couldn't see the stick behind me when I did a reverse parallel park (I was used to practicing it in the same position), and also because I started off down a street with at least 5 20km speed bumps down it - so nervous when I moved off the kerb I totally forgot and went over the first one at 30km.
I passed the second time but a random auditor guy suddenly rocked up, disputed with the tester and decided to fail me, the bitch. I was being so careful I accidently gave way to a car on the left through a roundabout.

I feel too discouraged to take my 3rd but I will have to in 3 days. *sigh*
