    Re: Woohoo!

    Congratulations Gatt I scored 33 for the multi-guess part and 57 for hazards - it's a huge weight off now I bet All the best for the practical. Took me 3 tries :?

    Re: Woohoo!

    Even though I have had a car licence for 11 years and did the theory test on paper in the first year it came out I had to do the theory test on computer last year when I did my bike test. Found the hazard perception annoying and you definately need a practice at it. Think I got 33 and 50 odd for my score. The practice CD was a little crap though as sometimes I would click when I saw the hazard and it wouldnt score as it was just before the program said it was!!!!

    I agree...! Passed my test in 1994, passed after the 4th attempt. Got so pissed after failing on the 3rd try, that I decided to pay for a weeks intensive driving course and passed!!

    Re: Woohoo!

    @ChrisH: This is what I think happened to me in the exam - there were some clips where I seen the hazard early on, and knew it would "develop" and clicked again yet i eneded up with a low score at the end.

    @webman - i'm trying to beat my (younger) brothers 1 passed theory 1st time, but took 3 attempts and his practical, the other was 3 attempts and theory, passed practical 1st time - I'm lookng to pass the practical 1st time too

    Re: Woohoo!

    If you beat them does that mean they pay 50% towards a car for you?

    Re: Woohoo!

    I did my theory test in the army ... 20 of us in a cold portacabin under the watchful eye independant invigilators, army instructors and the people that actually wrote it! The first group from the Army to do the written test (and one of the first groups to do it at all once it was a legal requirement) ...

    No pressure ... none at all.

    Re: Woohoo!

    I think I passed a horse and cart during my driving test 20 odd years ago. I walked to the office after passing (1st time...glow!) and my b@stard boss threw me the keys to his brand new Jag and told me to go on an errand for him - about a 1000 point turn to get out of the car park - and complete confusion with the gears as they had some weird J shaped shift movement - I was a gibbering wreck for days...
