I don't want to have to sit on a booster seat to drive, don't you think that would be a little embarissing?

Yeah, it would, but it's probably better than not driving at all.

I guess so, but still the thought of having to do that. I'd be branded for life. Especially by my sister. She'd probably pick at me about it for a while.

You could always get a height adjustable seat installed in your car, or add padding to the driver's set, so its less obvious.

hey, does anyone know how to apply for a driving licence after passing? everywhere I read it says you have to fill out a D750 form, but when I went to the postoffice, they said they didn't make them anymore! help!

I passed a year ago first time, and the independence is great! I can't believe those figures for pass rate, is that first time pass rate? My driving instructor had a pass rate of 94%.

Well done for passing.
I also found the independance is great, but am still faced with a problem. Before, I couldn't get to pubs, etc. so had to stay at home, but now that I can drive, I can get to the pub, but can't drink, so there's almost no point, as I hate watching other people drinking if I can't. That's why I want a uni i a town, so I can just stumble home from the pub at night.

Hi all,

I am new to the board and just didn't know what to do with myself, since I just failed my third driving test 2 hours ago

I had my test at the gedling test centre in Nottigham and right now feel like giving up.

Me too. I have failed my 3rd and each time I'm so close. But my nerves get the worse of me and I cant think straight. Also I err on the side of being over-cautious which is why I failed 3 times.

Crap because normally I am a very safe and competent driver but the examiners reduce me to jelly.

over here (on the isle of man) u can start driving as soon as you're 16 which is kool, so theoretically u can pass sooner!! altho that is not always the case! i turned 16 in may and have had 7 lessons as i only got insured on our car at the beginning of july... but hopefully will be able to pass before my 17th!

That's weird, as I'd have thought it would be 17 just like the rest of the UK.

I'm guessing though that even if you get your licence at 16, you can't drive on the mainland till you're 17.

yes that is true...
i know someone who has jus moved to england who is 16, they'd had four lessons over here and now theyve moved they cant get any more lessons til next march when theyre 17... and they are pretty peeved over it... i'd find it quite annoying.
