    Failed the first. (Nearside rear tyre clipped the curb of a very tight left hand turn into a narrow side street from the main road.)

    Passed the second.

    Passed first time round, only took 10 lessons.

    I did a lot of driving beforehand with my older brother, personally I think new drivers should be encouraged to drive before booking lessons.

    One, failed with 10 minors and one serious (not getting back into lane quickly enough after overtaking cyclist on a 60) after 40 someodd hours of lessons. Haven't rebooked and haven't been behind the wheel since, which was well over a year ago now.

    Five. Failed car test three times when young. Gave up and bought a motorbike as a car was not much use in London anyway. Passed bike test and then car test when I left London.
