    I wasn't terrible but not too cut out for driving
    Even failed a lot of practice theory tests lmao, for every few questions like "should you a. run over a pedestrian or b. not run over a pedestrian" you get some stupid stopping distances or obscure sign
    It's just like every other test, you need to revise and practice for it.

    2nd time unfortunately, the first one I was failed for 'speeding' (25mph in a 60 limit as it was very wet was apparently still too fast) but anyway I'm grateful to have passed this time with only 2 minors How about you?
    Ah I passed second time too. They say that the people who pass second time are better drivers well I say that anyway haha. I failed on the way back to the test centre in literally the last 5 mins 😭😭😭😭

    Aw 2 minors is awesome congrats again. I had 4 I found the theory harder than the practical haha

    Don't give up :dumbells:

    If it makes you feel better I failed the hazard perception 5 times and my practical 3 times ... you just got to carry on truckin'.

    Plus you don't want to leave it too late - it's really stressful trying to learn to drive in the evenings after work, or at the weekend, when you have little free time and you're tired.

    I can, but choose not to - I haven't driven since the day I passed my test, and have little to no intention of doing so. I only passed it for my CV.

    I've been driving legally for nearly a year now, but always wanted a motorcycle - unfortunately the parents didn't approve of the idea and I can't justify the cost anyway :cry2:

    But damn that's cool girl

    Haha yea I agree Thanks very much! Yeah I mean I find it much easier driving on my own than following an examiners orders but at least thats all done now. My current understanding is that the test is normally much pickier than driving in the everyday world .(Also congrats on passing yours 4 years ago )

    Driving is easier in real life and a lot more lenient

    To all those without a licence - get one. One of the more important things you can do. I know British kids lag behind many countries in this but I can't stress how important it can be.
