I think what #17 was trying to say is that there are some asshole instructors that will fail you the first and sometimes the second time and then eventually pass regardless of your drivings skills. There are few of those, but they (unfortunately) exist. I think there should be an IQ and ethics test for the instructors as well...
You know what? I'm really not surprised that this took place in Quebec. I live in this stupid province and I can tell you honestly that most people seriously don't know how to drive. They don't use their turn signals, they don't slow down so you can merge into another lane, they just keep powering through like they own the dang roads. FYL OP.
59 - Quebec drivers, especially Montreal drivers, are NOTORIOUSLY terrible. In a lot of ways it's made me a better driver to have to be on my toes all the time here, but damn people just don't give a shit. I've almost been killed I don't know how many times. My Dad used to drive trucks and said he never understood how idiots in tiny cars think it's okay to cut off a giant eighteen wheeler. If a truck hits you, YOU ARE DEAD. It'd be a miracle for you to survive, but people act like they're invincible.
#28 I'm pretty sure my driving class was entirely online, and my dad signed a paper saying I was able to drive and I walked out of the DMV with my license without taking a physical driving test. Some places don't require it, or at least didn't for a large amount of years.
Well your clear for being smart...he's probably screwed if the cops came by to check it out...hope you have new car replacement if its totaled...
Clear for being smart? The accident wasn't legally OP's fault because OP was not going the wrong way down a one-way street. But practically speaking, just braking wasn't enough, so wasn't smart enough -- the safe move is to also get out of the way of oncoming traffic, even when that oncoming traffic is in the wrong. Op didn't, so he and his car weren't clear of an accident.
