Passed driving test
passed when i 32,
first thing congratulations,
second now you learn to drive. I would suggest some motorway lessons at the very least. Passplus or similar, it does help with the insurance costs.
third, remember you only have 6 points, ie get caught speeding twice and you go back to L plates.
fourth, however good you think you are, you’re not. Treat driving like a privilege. And hopefully you won’t be one of the huge number of new drivers who crash.Posted 4 years agojonbaMember
22, 1 minor for ‘steering’ or some such.
I assume that you have ridden a fair bit on the road as a cyclist?Posted 4 years ago
My instructor mentioned that it was often clear as people understand how the roads work so all they need to do is work out the car. I guess some people never figure out how roads work.NorthwindSubscriber
I got 2 minors on the bike test which tbh I didn’t think I deserved. Went back to my instructor, said “I passed, had a great ride”, he said, “And he gave you 2 minors, one for hesitation and one for control, right?” Apparently they’d never seen anyone get less than 2 from that tester.
On the car test, years later, I picked up 4 and yep entirely deserved, 2 separate mistakes and entirely deservedPosted 4 years agocaptaintomoMember
Thanks a lot chaps. Just been out for a spin and it feels amazing!
“I assume that you have ridden a fair bit on the road as a cyclist?”
Yes this is correct and I think it put me at a slight advantage as like you said I understood the road system.
Thanks again for kind wordsPosted 4 years ago
