By it's called an accelerator, grandma, get your ass in gear - 06/03/2016 19:59 - United Kingdom - Leeds

Today, I had my first driving test. The instructor turned out to be the kind of twit who made me do the full 60-minute test, only to tell me afterwards that he was failing me for the only mistake I made less than 2 minutes after the test started. Time wasting tit. FML

Actually, I've had this happen too, while doing my test. I believe they're meant to make you do the whole test for the sake of experience with the different sections, like independent driving, so you're more prepared next time.

Second time's the charm!

Sue him!! No not really, but seriously tell an official

In the UK they have to make you take the whole test, any official would tell you the same.

Report him for doing his job properly!? Brilliant. ... That'll show him... ?

It was for me! Only just though

Totally agree. Good for experience, plus you paid to do the whole test and his time was booked to the whole test.

Yup, that happened to me too.

I passed my first time, but I have to ask: what state does OP live in where that test took an hour?

I have the same question as you, #49. Granted, I do live in the States, but my test took maybe 20 minutes at most. And that's including the vehicle inspection/showing your hand signals/random questions about the vehicle bit.

OP doesn't live in any state they live in the Uk

I don't think so. I failed my first test because I bumped the curb pulling out of the parking spot, 45 second into the test. She immediately told me to park because it was over.

Surely that is only a minor fault

This is spot on! Just because you messed up one thing doesn't mean he shouldn't assess you for other things that are required to independently operate a car! It's a good sign that the rest is okay, good luck with your next attempt!

Those guys can be awful. Mine failed me when I swerved to avoid upcoming car. I saved the bastard's life but apperantly I should have just stopped and let them hit me

I'm from Australia and we have a rule if you get hit on a test, even if it's not your fault, you fail the test.

In that situation you would have failed no matter what, at least here in Canada. Swerving is never a good idea, but getting hit is an automatic fail.

At least you know what to expect for the next time!

"Hey, if I just failed you, I wouldn't get paid for the hour." "Hey, how about fuck you?"

Honestly, I wouldn't call it a waste of time. Sure it sucks, but you now have a little bit of extra driving experience. Might come in handy for your second time.

man that would DRIVE me crazy. Don't get too tire-d. After all, I know you will try wheely hard to get it next time. I hope you brake your record of two minutes!

You tried so hard, then got down voted. But in the end it doesn't even matter.

Making a pun is bad enough. Why did you have to make so many?

Actually in the uk they have to take you for the whole time, even if you fail as soon as you get in the car you have to have the full time :/ sucks I know but it's not his gault

It can be a good thing since now you know there's only one thing you need to brush up on instead of wondering if you would have passed but for that one thing.
