    Well, failed it with 2 majors, 1 for not seeing a stop sign and second for returning to left lane without giving sufficient space. Ah well... gonna book a second.

    LOL, all this talk of driving tests ... my birthday is December and I'm 18 now, so that means I've been able to take driving lessons for about a year and a half now, and guess what, I've never set foot in the driving seat of a car! I don't know why, but I haven't really been interested in spending a fortune on lessons, a car, insurance, the tests etc. I'm probably the only person in my circle of friends who hasn't taken a driving lesson, lol. Now I'm off to uni in October, so I don't know when I'll get the chance to learn, but as I'm going to uni in London (grades dependent), a car would be pretty pointless. I want to do it before I finish uni though, as potential employers might prefer to employ someone with a driving license...

    Good luck Nylex BTW.

    I did my test twice in sunny old bournemouth where the examiners are all twisted and evil. Has anyone else had major problems trying to book a test lately. I've tried everyday for about a month and I still can't get through to a human on the phone. Ahhhhhhhh

    Bad luck, I wouldn't worry though as I know someone who took six attempts to pass!

    What did you do to get the majors? Did you get 0 minors?

    LOL, no it's one of my offline friends. BTW, no offence was intended to anyone who took six (or more) attempts to pass! I think driving tests are more of a lottery than a measure of skill; it all seems to depend more on what you encounter on the day and your examiner than anything else.

    I can't really talk though, as as I've said, I've never driven before in my life, I don't even have a provisional license yet!

    I have my test coming up soon too. I'm so nervous. Had my mock test today and failed with 2 majors and 8 minors. The majors were so stupid- stuff I never do, but which is really dangerous! Like zooming across a give way sign! *sigh* I really hope that I'll improve before the test. I'm praying for a nice examiner!

    You could always learn after uni. I know loads of peopl who are planning to do exactly that coz they have no need to drive, especially with halls being right next to the uni. out of interest, which london uni r u going to? it isnt imperial is it?

    Yep, Imperial's the plan. It's good to hear that you know some people who aren't learning to drive; nearly everyone at my college was doing it!
