I can't believe I finally passed the traumatic experience known as the UK driving test!! 4th time too...whoa...
SO if you haven't passed, don't give up hope, it is possible if you get a decent examiner!
The first time the guy failed me for driving on the wrong side of the road coming out of the test centre (complete accident, too many parked cars on the left. I know to drive on the left lol). The second time the examiner 'Neil' failed me for stalling twice on the hillstart and the third time, I had a creepy examiner. He told me psycopaths used to live in my house, witches were burnt on my street, and I would probably be knifed soon by people in the area. I didn't really reply, he failed me for 'jittering' the car and nearly stalling it (though I didn't!) and couldn't explain half his marks on the paper, which was annoying. I should have appealed it, but didn't think it would go anywhere.
Today it was pouring rain and I had an older man named Charles who hardly spoke the whole time. I thought I had failed because on the turn-in-the-road I took my foot off the clutch whilst the car was engaged in gear which was stupid, but I passed with 6 minors and my car insurance is £800 a year cheaper!!! I couldn't believe it, but I found a company that will take foreign no-claims (ecar I think?) so life is good!
Anyways had to share the story, maybe it'll give hope to someone their 4th time 'round.
