I'm sorry! My mother is pushy and overprotective too so I know how you feel. Hopefully she'll back off a little next time

She better pay for the retake test >.

She was just looking out for you

Have you told your instructor?

The instructor was with OP so he likely knew. Unless OP's mom hit and ran.

Talk about being over protective. I think your mom needs driver's Ed.

Maybe OP was too embarassed to tell the instructor?

In every sense of the word.

I would use this as a pivotal point in the relationship. Now is a great time to set some boundaries!

Quite literally at this point.

She better pay for the retake test >.

That'd suck if they failed OP just because of that.. I don't think getting rear ended is OP's fault :(

When it comes to the DMV, everything is your fault.

Everything is the drivers fault at the DMV. That's why I took mine in my drivers ed class at school.

OP's mom probably blamed it on her, saying she stopped too fast.

Dunno about America but in the UK it's always the guy behind who is at fault. OP should be fine as long as they were driving correctly at time of impact.

#39 the same goes for us Americans.

#39 It is true for Americans, but something similar happened to my friend during her driving test and they failed her. It's not fair, but that's the DMV for you.

Is Indiana the only state that the DMV is called the BMV?

51, Ohio is the same way. people generally call the bmv the dmv, incorrectly (they sound similar).

In Arizona it's the MVD.

In Maryland it's called the STD

#60 Funny, but you know as a fellow Marylander we call it the MVA. But I get the joke though.

That's his it is in America #39. At least in my state.

Wow, must've been awkward after.! Ha

Talk about the anxiety you probably went through

Exactly, driving test are already stressful enough and to have your mom follow you could only make it worse. I feel for you OP.

Hopefully it's something to laugh about in the future. Till then don't let a day go by without fitting it into the conversation.

I feel like there's a joke to be made here... But I don't want to give you a bum rap. Being rear ended is a real bummer.

You tried, #10, you tried.

Someone has trouble letting go. Hopefully, she realizes now that she can't always be there. It also might stop future accidents

just giving you a little bump draft!;)
