Default ah this is taking the P*ss now

I failed my driving test for the 3rd time

Apparently I was speeding in a 30 zone when i was only going 32 MPH and he said I almost cut someone up on a round about, despite the fact that on that round about you have to go left to turn right

when I was "speeding" he practically stood up to check my speed and then said "can you slow down please its a 30 zone, did you not see the sign" and then marked down a major on the sheet, so i said "you what, you can f*ck right off"

Argh I'm so annoyed

I have a feeling I would be in the same position as you if I was over there because I'm lucky if I stay at least 15 over the speed limit. For some reason vehicles I drive don't like to do the speed limit.

Tests are a racket now - they fail you for the slightest thing - more money for them

Exactly. It also matters alot which instructor you get. It's alot like refs and umpires in sports they all have diffrent views on rules or regulations.

Getting marked up for just going 2 over is dumb as hell. Providing of course you have the standard (non digital gauges) it's also very difficult to see the speedometer reading's from the passengers seat because the angle doesn't give you a true reading.

Most cops will allow you to go like 8mph over or something because i believe there radar gun have like a + or - 8mph error or something along those lines. (my buddies a cop)

How many hours do you put in behind the wheel before you take your test?

Because I know for mine, I put a solid 40 hours or so behind the wheel before I took my test.

The most difficult thing for me was paralell parking, and whats funny is, I have yet to apply that in real life driving and I've had my licence for 4 years.

Make sure your next test your relaxed and 110% focused on driving. Drving is a multitasked skill.

Word. I can't remember the last time I drove the speed limit. I get really impatient doing the limit. I always have to do atleast 15-20 above it.

Especially on the highway, no less than 120
