In the immortal words of my driving instructor:

"If you see a large shiny silver octagon, stop, you're going the wrong way on a one way road"

And most importantly: Don't hit anyone!


I had a friend who failed for going a little too far over the line at an intersection (like, barely at all, but they failed him )

Well, this really angered him because he was supposed to drive out to a camping trip that weekend, and it was now off. So seeing as they were in HIS car for the test, as soon as the instructor failed him he cranked Anthrax up on his stereo, and gunned into 140kmp/h back to the test centre LOL!

The instructor almost had a heartattack!
hahahaha , thats real funny. My friend also done a similiar thing , he hit a kurb whilst parking then he asked the examiner if he failed , and he nodded...so he got his moneys worth and blitzed it down the country lanes

When you check your mirrors, make sure you move your head and not just your eyes... the examiner will be watching the road, what you're doing and the scoresheet, so won't necessarily see that you're doing all the right checks.

But have confidence and be relaxed and it should all come naturally.

Yea, I'm already into the habit of doing that sort of thing (going for my test soon-ish too) from when I took my drivers training (took Young Drivers of Canada, great course).

We should probably start a permanent thread on driving habits and stuff. I know that Rich would fill it up this with some of the most funny stories ever.

Heh. I wouldn't call 17 minors "petty". I'd call it "time for more practice!"

Yeah I know what you mean.
But I just meant that if I didnt do some stupid little mistakes I would have done it. I meant no offense or nothing, there was no need to be harsh.

I had no majors or anything. But as I say, just try again!
