Diary of a Graduand; Day 3


Absolutely. F*cking. Gutted.

Proceeding to plan B, which involves icecream, flapjacks, a magnum of Asti, two hours and a nice hot bubblebath. In your face bitatches. Oh, and a shedload of public transport. Hrrumph…

  1. Bad luck – plan B sounds good anyway. There's always next time etc.

  2. I failed twice if it helps. 7 majors between the two tests. Next time… though for now bubblebath and icecream = the win!

  3. Cheer up chuck – I failed first time around. Stick with it!

    I failed 3 times, and I'm not the best driver who has ever lived.

    I'm now the best driver who has ever lived, rather.

    Freud, you fuck.

  7. Piss flaps. Try what my mate did and stroke the leg of the examiner instead of connecting with the gear stick. It worked for him…

  8. Thanks everyone :) Hopefully next time will be a bit better, and with a less "Victor Meldrew–ish" examiner!

    5 minors, 3 majors. But not even proper majors like hitting an old lady or driving on the wrong side of the road. I was failed for not accelerating enough after leaving a junction. And he thought that on one road I drove too close to some parked cars. If only I'd known I'd have really made it worth his while to fail me, I'm talking nail–marks in the dashboard ;)

  11. Not accelerating enough? I can soon teach you out of that!

    I failed Twice and only just passed the 3rd time but I've been told I'm a good driver. I think if people will happily sleep in your car/van/minibus with you driving it can't be a bad thing :–). Have faith – you'll get there in the end. And it will be SO worth it. Freeeeeeeeeeeeedom!

  13. It´s good to fail at least once. This is because:–

    1. All the best people do.

    2. It makes passing eventually sooo much better.

    3. More anecodotes re: driving examiners.

    Anna's right – I passed first time, and i'm a poor poor driver. Statistically, the best drivers pass on their third time. Don't dispair!

    I passed first time, although that was after two years of lessons; at one point my instructor told me "most people who start off as bad as you give up". I hope seeing me pass wasn't too much of a shock for him – he died five days later.
