    Taking my driving test today

    Well wish me luck. I'm doing it in a mini-van and I'm a bit worried about the maneuverability part. The road part shouldn't be too hard though.

    I'm going to go practice now in the half hour I have left before I have to go.

    Good Luck!
    Make sure not to stress when on the streets. Be calm, careful, and it will be all fine!

    Don't forget that if you meet someone at a stop light and you make eye contact you have to race him. It's the law.

    Wow, CRAZY! I have mine on next Thursday, in a Mini-Van, but up here in Alberta there is no manuverability test, just a road test, and the only thing you really need to watch out for there is shoulder checks, play ground zones, and school zones... that and un controlled intersections.
    Yea... I can't wait to have my liscence and drive my ****ty truck everywhere... :D
    Anywho, good luck.
    BTW, I can't take the truck for the test because the spedometer doesn't work. :lol:

    Your insurance will love that.



    I took my test in a mini-van, really not bad. I missed 3 points when I stopped at the white line and then creeped forward into the crosswalk though, made me pretty mad. I also missed one for stopping a little too hard, stupid downhill roads. My uncle taught me a good way to parallel park, very geeky though.

    Well I just got back and I passed the test! I only missed two points for "stopping to check my progress" during the maneuverability test, which is a stupid rule anyway. How are you supposed to know if you're going in correctly if you don't check your progress?

    The cops followed me the entire way through mine.



    Hope you're less nervous than I was.

    I'm probably going for mine early August, and I really don't think I'm going to know enough in time. I am a really bad driver right now. Oh well, we'll see how much I learn.

    when I went for mine a few months back, I sped through a street where children were playing on the road, I blocked traffic from both directions during my parallel parking, and ran into the curb while backing up at the end, I was just waiting for her to say "FAIL" but I passed by 8%

    my advice to you is to treat a car as a tool.
    tools are designed for specific jobs...
    why drive a car to the corner store when you could walk or ride a bike?
    why use a sledgehammer to push a brasstack through paper?
    use it, but don't abuse it.. for ALL our sake :)
