Yeah, I refuse to take a park unless there's a free space on either side. I once smashed up the side mirror of a rental car, and it was, shall we say, expensive.

I passed on the first try, but I am not a good driver. I get really nervous.

I got rear ended last winter, and now I hate driving in the snow!!

It took me five times.

Not because I'm a bad driver, but because I got so freaking nervous I would make a terrible mistake that would result in an automatic failure.

Pull out of a parking lot on the "left" side of the driveway (only wide enough for one car, much less a "left" or "right" side).........automatic failure.

Forget to pull into into the closest lane when making a turn.....automatic failure

Get cut off while trying to cross six lanes of traffic to get to a fork in the road resulting in the inability to make the turn to the fork.....automatic failure.

Everything in CT is an automatic failure.

all of you go to saskatchewan to get your drivers license!
it is so incredibly easy, though I am still a good driver.
here is a quick synopsis of my saskatchewan driving education:
15 years old took about 4 hours in class, had short written test, got 100%-got my learners.

still 15, started in car and in class-did another 26 hours in class and only 4 hours in car with instructor. no more tests done and on final hour in class instructor gave me a certificate to go pick up my license the day i turned 16.

day i turn 16, drivers license baby!
the whole process cost about $40, which is pretty cheap relative to most other canadian provinces. the really sweet thing was how easy and cheap it was for me to come back to ontario where we have graduated licensing which involves a lot of time, tests, and $$$.

there are only 2 universal languages: mathematics and love

I actually failed the written test 3 times, but passed the actual driving test the first time.

My driving instructor thought I was cute, so he just winked and gave me my waiver form anyway!

I beat you! It took me 6 times...and for exactly the same reasons as yours...I would always get nervous and hit the curb during the parallel park...automatic failures.

I passed second time. I don't know why I failed because I'm a fantaaaaaaastic driver...although very few people believe me when I say that. I did have a slight run-in with a rubbish truck though. I think that might have had something to do with it.

I passed both tests the first time, but they didn't include parallel parking in my driving test. *phew*

I have my test coming up pretty soon. Passed theory in one, and I can parallel park with the best of them.

I also have most of the other special manoeuvres down, but I don't know what you call them in English... the one with the handbrake on an incline, backwards parking, turning on a narrow road. The only one still causing me trouble is going backwards around a corner.

Yep, you need to know a lot to get a license in the Netherlands. But that's a good thing, really.

The one with a handbrake on an incline is called "God help me, why didn't I get an automatic?"
