hey guys! I'm trying to make my sister feel better because she failed her very first road test in trying to get her driver's liscense. I told her not to sweat it because other people have failed it before too, hell, I failed mine once before passing it the second time. Plus her driver tester was a completely elder woman who claimed she did a roll stop, even though I'm the one who trained her to NEVER do that at a stop sign because that's an immediate termination.

Well, don't be shy and do share your stories with us! I'm trying to prove to her that she shouldn't feel embarassed about a temporary situation. she knows what to expect from crazy old ladies next time so when she stops, she literally going to stop for 5 seconds and let the woman verify if that was a complete stop lol. she's crazy.

I passed the first time. Only place I lost points was the Parallel. I parked to far from the curb as I was afraid I'd hit it. A couple of my friends have failed though. It's no big deal just try again. She'll pass next time.

I failed 3 times before I passed, I actually crushed a cone under my tire and then accidentally disregarded a stop sign whilst taking the first test.

Funnily enough, I passed my tests finally whilst driving a large van.

Just let her know that failing the first test is to be expected especially since you don't know how the person who is going to test you will grade you. Now that she got a feel for how the test is done, she will definitely pass the second time. All will be good and she will be on the road with her new license in no time. Good luck to her.

wow, they sure are strict wherever you're from. My driving tester let me correct myself during the parallel parking before determining if I passed or failed because he understood that even experience drivers have a hard time parallel parking perfectly. so, as soon as I parked it, he checked out his window and said, "ACE".

some instructors are just so lame like that. I never understood why some of the things they do is even necessary. for instance, telling you to turn on the radio while driving or talking to you while driving, or asking you to roll down your window while driving. WTF. Do they want to die or fail nervous drivers? I'm glad a lot of instructors have stopped doing that now after realizing how bogus it is.

I passed first time, both written and driven...and my dad paid car insurance for one year.
That was the deal anyways. Easy test, didn't even study, just used common sense.

I passed first time in my mom's early 2000s Chevrolet Impala(one of the last full size ones). Parallel parked perfect and did everything else great. Wasn't nervous about it and it went fine. I'll say that I picked up driving very quickly and showed ,some dare I say, talent for it so I was confident I'd pass. A girl after me took her test in a tiny Toyota Corrolla and completely failed the parrallel park portion. Based on everyonelse comments it seems like the type of car is irrelevant and more about the skill of the driver as plenty of posters have driven vans, trucks, or in my case a big ass car and passed without trouble. Makes me laugh as another driving school in my area actually let students use a mini-Cooper for their test if they enrolled as an incentive to attract students.

As for the OP's sister sounds like she got an old anal retentive tester. She'll do just fine second time out as long as she doesn't sweat it too much. Good luck to her!
