Why driving lessons are not good.

I nearly took out a biker yesterday... My instructor made me travel around a roundabout for ten minutes and made me panic when he joked that I was to wake him up in half an hour... He also took me out on the main roads and took me to a 60 mile an hour zone... I was going 40 MPH andthought it was too fast... Then he told me to step on the gas a bit more and I didn't realise I was going 70 MPH...

I'm really just going to be a shit driver on the whole.

Yet I hope to pass in may so I can drive down to London to see Meg and Toz.

Well I'm just about ready for my theroy test. I am going to book it in two weeks. I want to take the pass plus course because I'm rubbish at driving and I will probably be shittier on the motorway.

I have another lesson this afternoon which is shitty because it's been snowing heavily. My instructor said that if you can drive in the dark and when the roads are icy and snowy, you can drive anytime.

You can drive can't you? Meghan can too can't she?

How many people on DF can drive and how many times did it take them to pass? Any advice would be good because I'm really nervous behind the wheel.

Haha, yeah I can drive, I have Full UK Car and Full UK Motorcycle licences. I'm planning to take an international test soon to get an international licence. It's mostly theory really.
I'd like to get licences for goods class vehicles as well.
I love to drive and i'll drive anything i can get behind the wheel or bars of.

For my car licence, it took me 4 times.

-- First one was an illegal test, he took me out for over an hour in a monsoon and made me do all the manouvers when you're only supposed to do a few in 40 minutes (but when i argued they said tough shit)
-- Second one I got barged off the road by someone trying to undertake me on a roundabout. Bitch said it was MY fault for wanting to not get hit.
-- Third time I was doing a 3pt turn and someone turned up, signalled me to go and when i did, tried to move infront of me. I braked and didn't get anywhere near him but the instructor was a twat and when I argued, refused and threw a hissy fit at me saying "i am authority" so I filed an official against him.
-- Final time, I passed. With 4 minors. 1, I turned my head rather than use mirrors (blind spot?) 2, selected wrong gear (linked to-) 3, stalled after someone also stalled on a roundabout up a hill (not too major, i had only been driving that turbo diesel for 2 hours since it was my instructors new car he got that week) 4, accelerated too fast. I hadn't driven a turbo diesel before, and i put my foot down and the turbo kicked in!

My bike licence took me two goes, First time I went to do it but didn't actually do it. It was a record hot day and the kid doing his test before me (who was very fit) passed out and fell off his bike. Second time, I did it, no minors.


Honestly, the thing to remember is that you're a thousand times better than they are, that you know you can do it, that you're the fucking bomb and remain confident while chilled. Do what you can do, don't rush it or hesitate too much, just flow nicely through the test and follow your instructor's advice on it. Driving examiners are fucking cunts. They're ridiculously self centred, they judge you on everything else other than your driving and use their own stupid little pittances against you, they are out to fail you but you're going to prove to them that you're the motherfucking bomb, yo. Oh, and you can ask for your instructor to sit in the car with you. It's always a good idea, if they start trying to fuck you over then having someone else in the car who knows the deal is really useful. I wish I knew that first time round. Another tip, take sunglasses with you!

I'm not sure about Meaghan's licence status. Have to ask her.

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEG?????

To get a US license for cars. Take a short test, and be polite to your road test person. They give it to most anyone.. As shown by the majority of idiots driving here..

I passed mine when I was 16 on the second try. I'm not going to bother with a UK license.

And if you can't pass, Lens, you can always take the train.

Past both my theory and practical the first time .
Don't know exactly know how driving lessons work in the UK .

Over here you take about 30 to 50 lessons at around 40 pounds a piece .
The lessons are 50 minutes long .
Then you pay around 150 pounds for your theory exam , if you pass it is legal for a year .
In this year you have to get your practical exam and pass ( you pay around 200 pounds for this one ) .
If you don't , you also will have to get a new theory exam .

I was glad that I passed both the first time .

I've got my license 11 years now and never had a ticket .
What about the rest of you ?

I passed my driving test the first time I took it, despite the horrifying instructor making me insanely nervous. Why are all the female driving instructors such bitches? I've never heard of someone having a nice (female) instructor.

Aaaand I've never gotten a ticket. I was pulled over once, but I just got a warning.

Hey Lenina,

Good luck with the driving! It took me 5 goes, £100382319 worth of lessons, a bitch fight with a sour faced instructor hag and one dose of seriously creepy hypnotherapy before i finally passed. Since then it's been plain sailing - i've only run over five pheasants, two cats, a dog, a badger and an audi tt... but humans have so far been relatively safe from harm.

I'm so bad that my first driving instructor dumped me as a pupil. He told me "there was nothing more he could do" after i failed the first 3 times. If they gave me a UK license then i'm sure there is definitely hope for you.

i took about 10 lessons with a driving instructor - then drove my elder brothers around every where just to get some more practice. I passed the theory and the practical first go.

but i think driving in the uk would be completely different from driving in australia - i mean melbourne is a pretty busy place- but nothing compared to the uk
