    i failed!!!!!


    oh well will have to do it again



    i totally stuffed up bay parking but that has always been my worst manoeuvre out of the lot and i was approaching the junction to turn right and i checked my mirrors like a good girl lol and indicated and did everything i should i swear on my kids lives that there was no one indicating behind me and so i pulled out and as i did there was a car behind me so failed on that too
    only got 5 minors was dead chuffed with that but then got my two serious



    only problem is now i quite happy to do it all again as it was no way near as bad as i was expecting but...............


    there is no test dates till november in taunton not a problem i hear you say

    my theory runs out on october 30th

    i can't book a test in november for theory runs out in oct and can't book another theory test till that one runs out so am quite peeved

    all i can do is keep checking for a cancellation
    xxxxxx

    that actually upset me more than failing the blooming test

    Sorry to hear you didn't pass. I didn't pass first time and kept ringing each day for a cancellation. Got one and passed.

    I couldn't manage bay parking thank goodness I passed my test before that was part of the test

    Don't be too disappointed

    sorry to hear you failed but I'm sure you'll sail through (well not literally of course cos that'd be silly!) next time.

    Keep fingers crossed for a cancellation.

    aww that's a real bummer. the same happened to my boyfriend. he came in from his lesson on tuesday night and decided to book his test online. so i looked and there was one available the next morning - so he rang his instructor and booked it.

    unfortunately he failed and the next available test if for october 31st!!! he had an 'episode' and ranted for about 10 minutes saying he's giving up, it's too stressful, his instructor's crap, costs too much, he thinks the ginger t***er that was his examiner didn't pass him on purpose, etc. i just started laughing, then he laughed and thankfully calmed down! instead of booking another test he's decided to wait and see if any cancellations come up.

    i hope you manage to pass 2nd time around. ;)

    Aww that sucks. I'm not sure what you meant by the major fail at the junction? Luckily for me, the area in which I'm learning (and will take my test) doesn't have the facilities for bay parking, so I won't have to do it on my test! My greatest failing used to be left hand reverse but I think I've got that down now, it's parallel parking (but they don't call it that now do they?) that I think will let me down, but I'm with BSM and if you book your test through them they make sure that your instructor is available for a lesson immediately before.

    Oh, and I only just realised that I coast a lot, which is a major fault. So I have to watch myself constantly.

    I failed 4 tests before i passed (3 because I couldn't bay park lol!) Have been driving 3 years now and still can't park. But each test made me more confident and determined to pass. God luck with getting a cancellation:)
