For the test, you need to play it overly safe. Then, once you're granted a license, drive like every other crazy fucker.

Don't sweat it I had 2 flawless tests but failed both, one for rolling back on a hill and the second for not checking my blind spot. 3rd test I went I'm thinking if I fail ill just book it again. I passed with 6 minors. So keep at it!

22, I'm gonna side with 23 here. Those are both reason enough to fail. I'm not saying you're not a capable driver now, but not checking your blind spot? Seriously? Scary stuff. That'll cause accidents for sure.

Play if overly safe? No wonder I keep failing! I thought the trick was to show how skillful you were at driving not by driving by the rules. I guess next time I'll leave my blindfold at home, not drive backwards, and also not get out of the car going 70 to tuck and roll while the car is at a 90 degree angle making itself parallel park.

What sucks is, in NY, you can be doing fucking perfect, then when it comes to parallel parking... Hitting the curb is auto fail. Not sure about other places.

yeah. we test with our driving instructors at my high school in Utah, and they automatically fail us if we bump a curb doing a U-turn or a 3-Point turn. I'm an overly cautious driver, I didn't want my license but I had to take the class. you're allowed to miss 20 points and I missed 6, but I still havent gotten my license. ydi, op, for not playing it safe. my mom is a traffic officer and tells me stories every other night at dinner about fatal accidents that happen on "nearly empty roads".

22- idk what state u live in but its bullshit that you didnt pass for not checking ur blind spot, i forgot to check mine on my Y-turn and still passed, by a single point but i passed nontheless, i had a few more infractions then that, one of which cost me ten points but still im sorry they failed you for that, it happens all the time that people forget

79, it also happens all the time that people kill others with their reckless and/or irresponsible driving. Not checking your blindspot is enough to kill a child.

one of my second cousins forgot to check his blind spots while pulling on to the highway. he died in a huge accident caused by the truck he cut off.

No wonder there are so many accidents. People really need to look where they're going. It's kinda like crossing the street -- look both ways and check for hazards.

If your going to drive like all the crazy other fucks please don't get your license. There is enough idiots on the road as there is. Also running a yellow light is actually illegal when you have time to stop.

Sometimes they don't have the greatest judgement, for my test I got marked down for "turning to fast" and because I didn't stop behind a car after he started to go at a stop sign. I'm not saying OP was actually driving well, just that sometimes instructors aren't always right.

You really shouldn't turn too fast because you could potentially lose control of the car. Driving instructors usually know what the best thing to do is since it's their job to know.

Reply
  A7XCamaro  |  19

The instructors reason was that it wears out the suspension faster, not anything to do with safety, and it really wasn't a fast turn.

Maybe y'all should come to Mississippi to pass the test. I had to drive around 1 block of houses while no one was home. Stopped at 4 stop signs and used my blinker. Took me 4 minutes for the whole test lol.

Reply
  A7XCamaro  |  19

I never failed the test, genius, I got marked down because I didn't stop where you would stop if there was someone waiting to go at the sign, and rolled to the sign then I stopped.

Reply
  A7XCamaro  |  19

Also, I still always stop at stop signs, even in the middle of the night when there isn't another car on the road for miles.

No, I was just making a point.

Well, you know, you can fail for NOT breaking the rules in the place where I live. One of my friends didn't pass because the instructor asked him repeatedly to stop the car in places where parking is restricted. He thought that it was just a test, but, apparently, the instructor just needed to pee. He ended up peeing in his pants, and saw it as reason enough to fail my friend. Instructors aren't always right, you see.

I sincerely hope that you never get your license if you're really that idiotic enough to not know that you have to stop at a stop sign regardless of the circumstances.

By  if2013  |  10

Well if you'd actually read the road users handbook when you got your L's, or if you'd ever had a driving lesson, then you'd know that you have to slow down and if possible stop, at an orange light. And they can fail you on the spot for just about anything

Way to bring race and country into our nice discussion. However in America not everyone is a backwards hick, or a hypocritical douche/bitch. Surprising I know. Yes we have colorblind people but they've never mistakes yellow for orange...there are quite a few shade differences between the two. And Americans know alot more colors than just the primary. Look at the crayons factors and the 150+ colors they put in their crayon box. Some kids can name all of them.

  VampTat  |  10

Last I checked, there is a good two or three shades/tones of a difference between yellow and orange, and the middle light definitely looks yellow to me. Maybe it's orange in Australia? Regardless, please don't stereotype us. We're not all a bunch of willfully ignorant douchbags. I probably should also mention, that the age and type of bulbs used makes a slight difference too.

Wow, last I checked when I was out earlier today that light was yellow. Bright yellow. Maybe in other countries it is orange or amber, but every light I have seen in my almost 40 years has been yellow.

Wow. Way to be an ass. Americans know a HELL of a lot more than the Internet gives us credit for. We aren't the fat, redneck idiots that the Internet wants to make us out to be. It's simply not true. I have lived in 7 different US states across the nation and driven through many more and I'll say this: everywhere I've been they have been bright yellow. They couldn't even be construed as orange or any shade in between. Don't make snide comments about Americans being uneducated if you do not want the retaliation of it. Never mind the fact it makes you look like a complete presumptuous ass.

Uuummm did you guys not notice the OP is in Australia?? And our light is amber or Orange NOT yellow!! 2ndly, arent we just glad this dick didnt get his license?? As a licensed Aussie driver I sure as hell am!!!

You're correct, 116. Every time I see that odd blue light that looks as though they mixed it with the yellow, I get confused and crash into the car in front of me.

By  fordneagles  |  34

Clearly it wasn't as flawless as you seem to think it was. It doesn't matter if the road was 'nearly empty', if it's about to turn red, you stop. Every time you use an excuse like this, say it in your head with the word 'officer' at the end and see how well that would hold up.

Reply
  MrSassypants  |  31

"I swear the only reason I went zoomed pass the red light is because I was trying to hit over 80 so I could go fix something I screwed up in the past, officer." I'm sure that would hold up pretty well and is a great excuse.

Excellent advice. If it's a short yellow light I understand, but at least friggin try to stop. That yellow light is there to tell you that the red one is about to come on. I've seen plenty of fatal crashes on "nearly empty" streets. You have to drive like everyone else has their head up their ass. It's called defensive driving. Obviously you fell asleep for that portion of class.

Reply

The ruling with yellow lights is quite simple, actually: If it changes from green to yellow, then you are supposed to: a) stop, if you can still stop in time. b) continue if you cannot stop in time. Being able to stop in time here means being able to more or less "calmly" hit the brakes and bring the car to a stop before you cross the waiting line.

That makes me feel better about failing 5 times. She probably is a good driver but her nerves got the best of her like me.

I passed on my fifth try. I would mess up one thing and correct it the next time only to mess up what was previously correct. This kept happening a few more times. :/

I passed the first time I took the road test. If you fail it fifteen times I think you need to just take public transportation and call it a day. @__@

I had to learn how to drive after high school for college. It was 2 months later that I took my drivers test. I thought I was going to fail but my mom made me go. And surprisingly, I passed. I didn't know how to park parallel or anything. So u guys failing that many times.. Scares me!!!

  nnnope  |  26

112 & 134: from the way 109 worded his/her comment, it's hard to discern whether he/she lives in one of those states. Why would you say something like "I passed and I didn't even know how to parallel-park!" if it's not something you had to know to begin with??
