You failed six times, wasting a lot of money by doing so. Maybe you should have had some more lessons.
test fee = £62-£75
even including hire of instructor's car @ £25, still the random test costs less
for 6 tests including hire of instructors car for one hour = (62+25) x 6 = £522
VS: 10 hours of lessons between tests assuming with lessons i passed on round 3 instead of round 7
10 x £25 x 2 = £500 plus 3 x £62 test fee + £25 car hire = £761
total savings : £761 - £522 = £261Last edited by shinytoy; 06-04-2011 at 14:18.

errrrm::::The examiner say, as i stated above 'there COULD HAVE BEEN a pedestrian' not that there was one. Maybe if someone had been there i would have failed. And i only mounted it a little to go round the lorry cos both cars couldnt fit.

I would have liked to have just bought my instructor a card and a box of chocolates, but my grandmother had other ideas... she decided to buy my instructor an expensive necklace, which I refused to give to her. However, when I passed my test and the instructor took me home, my granny came running out with the necklace, chocolates, wine and card.... I don't think I've ever been so embarassed in my life... my driving instructor obviously felt uncomfortable too. When I started my PassPlus course, she then wore the necklace, i'm guessing because she felt so had too - so utterly embarassing. I wanted to die !

But i guess you owe him something bigger if he's risked his life teaching you :P
