    After waiting and waiting I failed the driving portion of my test today, sadly.

    It's pretty humiliating. I have been driving over a million miles in my life.

    But after my stroke and three brain surgeries I had not driven at all since about december 4th 2015. I got nit picked. But I also failed. It was a very high standard.

    I got put before a pass fail freeway interchange on the 5 south no big deal I had to get on and off fast. But she didn't exactly like the way I did it.

    i am a very good driver, I thought. This whole damage to me. This life is now so difficult.

    I will not give up. I know I will be retaking the test quickly. I'm sure I will be driving soon.

    But this song today right now.

    Somebody to shove.

    I need to remember how far I’ve come. Still sometimes I just feel like a trained seal.

    #3 3 years ago

    I thought it was hard getting into the drivers seat after only 3 months

    Sorry to hear that. Driving in So Cal is over rated anyway.

    So it looks like it's down to this.

    I bet a lot of older adults would fail a drivers test today especially in LA. That said, unless youre a commuter or need a vehicle for work/kids, F*** driving! use Uber & Lyft

    I sometimes wonder how some of the immigrants from the far east manage to pass their driving tests.

    What part of "pull out into the intersection and then wait to make your left hand turn" don't they understand?

    I can tell you around here every part of that is confusing to people.

    "Lets just sit at the light behind the line and then go when it's turning red and leave everybody else behind us stranded there" lol

    When I was young, it was common in NY to travel to a nearby rural county to take your driving test where the roads and situations were less challenging to even the odds.

    #13 3 years ago

    Don't sweat it buddy. I imagine taking a driving test in SoCal or NYC would be the toughest place in the country for that.
    I was the only one of 10 that failed my motorcycle skills test last year....worst day ever. You'll get it bud...you and me both!

    To be fair, riding in a ten foot circle trying to stay between those lines after a night on the town is no picnic.

    #15 3 years ago

    Especially if every night is a night on the town.
    Movin to the country.

    What you need is a little moral support when navigating the circle of death.

    I was already on my second try at the San Clemente DMV which had it in the parking lot on an incline. A buddy from the group that was down there trying to clear up some 502s so he could get to work and back, Adam, nicknamed Troll, came out and gave me a fist pump and a smile. After winning, I did a victory lap just for the hell of it

    Did the person giving you the test know your situation? About 20 yrs ago my dads license was up for renewal and he forgot about it and let it run out so he decided he was going to just drive without a license, well he did that for a couple years and one day my mom found out and said if you get in an accident we could be sued so he went to get a new license, secretary of state said because he had not had a valid license for so long that he would have ro take a test, so he went to take a driving test and the guy giving it treated him like shit cause he thought he was a drunk driver so he failed him to give him a hard time, boy was he pissed , i didn't have the heart to joke with him cause he was so mad. He did pass the second time.

    Driving tests are a money grab. When I got my license I failed the first test, 2 weeks later I retested in a different town but I got the same instructor (I don’t think he recognized me) but I passed flawlessly. I didn’t improve my driving in that time, I did everything the same as before, but this time he decided to give me a pass.

    Don’t sweat it. The instructor might have been having an off day too

    Hire an "undocumented" person to drive you around. Apparently they're getting licenses in your state.

    Drive the "Detroiter" way. 8% of Detroit residents are estimated to not have a Driver's License yet they drive anyway. Some for the simple reason of wanting to spend the $22.00 renewal fee on scratch-off lottery tickets, some for not paying a ticket and others for suspension for DUI's etc.

    Over 20% drive without mandatory liability insurance.

    From the 1976 movie The Gumball Rally:

    Franco: And now my friend, the first-a rule of Italian driving.
    [Franco rips off his rear-view mirror and throws it out of the car]
    Franco: What's-a behind me is not important.
