Still shouldn't have been taking the test on that car if you were unable to have the correct control regardless if it was a new clutch, old clutch or you were wearing high heels on the day.
It's just a shame the cyclists got wind of your plan... :)
I passed 4 weeks ago, luckily with only 2 minors. However, being 18 and a full time student, insurance prices are scary...
Passed my test on teusday 5th time lucky! 6 minors.
Now i have to face in inevitable prices of a car and insurance! Bring it on :)
Failed first time for pulling out as a car was indicating to turn in to my road causing the car behind to slow down. Picky!
Passed second time a few minors off from a fail and the examiner saying I just about scraped through. Took over a decade until my first accident though and that was a rear shunt with me at the front!
I passed my test first time after taking 12 lessons. Put in for my test on the first lesson and passed no pressure no faults.
The idea was to use the experience and see what I needed to work on. Been driving for 20 years without an accident.
Passed my test back in late 1980's things a lot easier back then.
Showed some good confident driving and no real problems apart from the fact I had the dipped headlights on (it was a little bit foggy) and also that I was doing 15mph over the limit a few times. Got 3 questions out of the 6 wrong.
I was so shocked to get a pass, although examiner did tell me to watch my speed.
My pre-test lesson was a nightmare, had a lot of kangaroo fuel in my tank :getmecoat:
If you pull out of a junction, and an approaching driver deviates from his course, due to your action, you fail. Doesn't matter if there was plenty of room/time, major fault, and fail.
My first test should have been December 23rd, but was cancelled due to a foot of snow falling overnight.
The new appointment came through (no internet in those days) for 9am on the morning after my 18th birthday in February. I failed for being too hesitant at a roundabout... and I'd stayed sober on my 18th specially! :(
My retest came through for April 1st... after the 18th birthday boooking, I felt like someone was taking the mick!
The retest was cancelled before I left home as one of the examiners had had a heart attack!
So finally, I had my fourth test booking, but only my second actual test on April 22nd... the test centre was opposite the conference centre which was setting up to broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest (it was the year after Bucks Fizz won) and the traffic was manic. I passed. The examiner was from a neighbouring town and got lost after directing me into a housing estate. I think I passed for finding my own way back to the test centre and bypassing the worst of the traffic :D
