I could easily pass now, as I am the best driver in the world, like everyone else is :)
:lol:

89 or 90 i think?

I failed the first time in the test centre after about 30 seconds, then had to restrain my instructor from punching the examiner.

Always a drama.

Nearly identical with my bike test, restraining my instructor.

I think it`s me.

Passed first time in 2001. Examiner was a proper laugh and put me at ease which really helped. These were his opening words on my test...

"Imagine its Saturday night... this is not a Landrover...its a new Porsche and its yours. Your girlfriend is in the car. You really don't want to be driving like a tit do you?"

I laughed my ass off, and passed.

Now why wasn't mine like that - when I did the reverse park he said the usual "Must be within 2 car lengths" so I parked - well - he then said "Thank you Mr Cross but the 2 lengths didn't include this car and the car you were parking behind" :rolleyes:

I passed mine 1st time in 1990.

12 years later it took 2 goes to pass my HGV, I almost had to be restrained when the first examiner told me I failed, I never fail!:eek:

I feel for you - my brother has failed several times and had some real pains in the arse. Mind you one was a woman who wasn't best impressed when he kept missing the gear lever and grabbing her!! :D

Mine was well cool... more so than I'd ever hoped for. As we were driving past the shops he reckoned he'd take a bribe paid in Cadbury's chomp bars!!

I passed my car on June 14th 2005... Seems like only yesterday though!

Passed PCV in August 2007! :D

Both first time ;)

I don't think I could pass either of them now, though - too many bad habits! :lol:

30th May 1991, two months after my 17th. I wanted to take my test on my birthday but I got talked out of it.

Very easy test, the road for the three point turn I could have swung it round in one, and the hill start was on a road so flat that it wouldn't have rolled with the handbrake off!

Failed the car one in Jul 86.

Took the old "dual test" again in Oct 86, failed and retook it and passed 5 days later.

Passed all the bike tests and further HGVs, bus, tracked vehicle etc etc etc without any probs.
