calling all drivers!!!!!

……..how many times before u passed UR driving test???? NO CHEATING BOYS!!!! And if u failed one or twice or thrice, any reason why?

With me I passed on my 2nd time, the first time I was soooooooo feckin nervous I hit a wing mirror of a parked car, but tankfully it was faced the other direction!!!!!!!!!! I failed mainly cause I turned out onto a main road with two lanes and turned onto the 2nd lane inside the first, and when he told me to turn left again he said, ‘see whats wrong there, a van overtook u on the LEFT instead it should have been the RIGHT’……so *shrugs*…….that’s why……….and I started bawling my eyes out…….

But thankfully before my physical test I passed my Theory 1st time…..

When I passed on my 2nd I was soooooooooooooooooo pleased with meself, it was the very first time I achieved anything positive and worthwhile!!!!!!

Passed first time through. Don't ask me to do a parallel parking manoeuvre these days, though. Couldn't do that if I was drunk and standing on my head, let alone sober.

In other motoring news, I ran out of petrol on a busy town road today. Ended up with my tail poking out into angry traffic.

Took me 3 goes to get my learner's permit.
Funny what amazing things can happen when you actually study the book!

I got my licence on my 2nd try, and I did the BEST parallel park I've ever done on the day of my test. I totally fluked it!

I failed the first time because I didn't look in my mirrors in the correct order (yes, my examiner was a very nasty person).

Luckily I passed the second time.

maddie, get yourself a towbar. Even if you drive one of them fooked up lil Sunny Boy's, get one. Then, its always someone elses radiator you are gonna go clean through, not your back end. You will never fear parallel parks again! oh, and get a roo bar on the front end too, for when you need to straighten up.

Passed 1st time.
Maddie and Kieran: an EZ way to parallel park (easier to show than explain in woirds, but here goes):
Line up your steering wheel with the steering wheel of the car in front of your space...cut your wheel all the way and back up until you can read the back number plate of the front car...then cut wheel all the way the other way...slide back into your spot...its pretty easy, when I showed it to my wife, she tried it and no longer has anxiety about parallel parking.

In theory it makes a lot of sense, I'll grant you that. But unfortunately even regular old angle-in parking alarms me.
