    It took me 3 times.

    1) The guy told me afterwards that he always flunked people the first time.

    2) The weather was dangerous but the DMV had a rule that if you cancelled it was the same as failing....

    3) I finally passed. I found out later that I had dated the tester's nephew who put in a good word for me. But I did pass.

    I passed the written the first time. I studied the manual and I don't recall that I missed any questions.

    Andi, we had to get higher than 78 on ours. I got 76 the first time, then 77. The time I passed, I got 81. So it wasn't any great shakes, but I passed. That's all I cared about.

    No, because I hit a car while trying to manuever around the circle drive of the school. The driver's ed teacher had me get my eyes tested, and that's when they discovered I have difficulty seeing around dusk and dawn. Now that I know, it's not a major problem. At least I only knocked the dust off from the car, and didn't do any permanent damage.

    I'm sure you'll do tons better than I did, lol. But good luck anyway, Brummie.

    I passed my test in 1964 in a car like this:

    The Austin A 30. 848 cc of raw power!

    That car does not look appropriate for Field Service...tsk tsk.

    Mike, I think I could have parked that car. I used the family car, a 1960 Lincoln Continental, in 1961. It was really long.

    Now I can parallel park very easily, no matter how big the car, or how small the space. Confidence!

    I passed the first time. Now I drive a school bus for a living!! And yes I have to parallel park it. (it's easier without the kids in it......they fog up the windows!)

    Don't worry you can do it.

    Yes....and every time I've changed States, I've passed it the first time, too.

    Yes. I started driving right after "Graduated Licencing" went into effect in Ontario so I had 2 car tests. I later got my transport truck licence and motorcycle licence. I now drive a city bus.

    1st test 5 mins

    2nd test 40 mins

    Transport truck test - 30 mins

    Motorcycle - 2 mins

    BTW, Good luck Brummie!
