Aww sorry to hear that. It's horrible to fail, I also passed 3rd time. One minor though is a great reassurance, it was probably your nerves that got to you with the right turn. I had a near miss at a right turn yesterday, my wee legs were like jelly :)

Have something to contribute?

Sorry to hear you didnt pass...

Exactly the same thing happened to me on my first test, one major two minors. I got my major in the first minute of the test! !Removed! up a junction... It was really annoying yet mildly hilarious at the time! What happened was i was so built up for the test that I wasnt concentrating on the driving! After the major i just relaxed into it because i already knew I failed, the examiner was actually quite impressed, he said it was a shame because my driving was good

I had to wait about two months for the second test, by that time I just wanted it over and done with, and I passed. I think I entered "the zone" I got back and my instructor asked if i passed, I said yes, then he asked what route we did to which I replied "I have absolutely no idea"

They say that the best drivers pass second time (apparantly)

And don't forget: Everyone deserves a second chance, no one deserves a third (Trust me on this)

You'll pass next time and thats a given!

Ah hun what a bummer, never mind a few weeks more waiting to retake means more practise and practise makes perfect!, I often wonder if I would pass a test nowadays lol, when I did mine we didnt have a theory test, no parallel parking, just 3 point turn, reverse round corner and emergency stop, then half a dozen highway code questions. Keep your chin up xxx

Shall be booking it for 6 weeks today, after my exams. i cannot explain how p'ed off i was and still am !


Never mind Michael--the first thing to do is to get your application submitted--then:

Practice, practice, practice!

Just try and relax next time and hopefully you'll be OK. :)
