Driving Tests

By buz1986 - 16 April 2010 43

At 9am this morning, my girlfriend had her driving exam, she turned up at Dickson and off she went…

Here is a list of things she did wrong:

    — she did 70km/h on northbourne ave – instructor told her to slow down cos she was 10km’s over the limit,
    — stalled the car 3 times,
    — rolled backwards about 2 meters on a hill start,
    — didnt indicate when she was parallell parking (well attemtping to!),
    — turned right when the instructor told her to turn left twice,
    — didnt indicate on 3 intersections,
    — reved the engine to the point that when she returned to dickson, the clutch smelt like she had just returned from summer nats!

And a few other things that she knows she did wrong.

instructors feedback:

    — it’s not a race, dont speed.
    — learn your left and rights,
    — practise parking more.

Shes a bad driver, she knows it, she said under no circumstances should she have passed…….. but he passed her… WTF?

On her ‘review sheet’ there was 1 negative, everything else was perfect.

What’s Your opinion?

From what I have seen, Driving Instructors try and milk as much $$$ from learner drivers as they possibly can. Either a) his business is doing pretty good for him not to find a reason for her to return, or b) he was so scared and couldnt find an easy way of telling her not to ever get behind the steering wheel of his office ever again ! I reckon the later!

My driving test was first off the ranks in the morning, took about 10 minutes and my mother was concerned that I had failed.

After going through the Ainslie traffic lights at the fire station, 3 times and getting them green, the instructor gave up and said to drive back. No test on a 3 point turn, and I had to pretend there were cars around for a paralell park.

Passed first tiem. Back then it was 3 months of learning and then you got your license. Why is it that these days, kids are learning for 6 months and still cant pass?

Back in the dark ages, when I took my test, all I was required to do was drive the local copper out to the servo for a packet of smokes.

Ahhh….the good old days !
