How many road tests did you take to get your license?

I'm curious how many people managed to pass their road test and get their driver's license on the first try. Or if you didn't pass it the first time, how many times did it take?

Don't be shy now... Not all road tests are created equal

Just for the record, I somehow managed to pass mine the first time!

2nd try... first time I got cut for stopping right on the white line at the light, instead of like a foot behind it. Stupid, really.
I'm the king of parallel parking, though.. got it in on my first try, no problems (and still no problems to this day).

Also, just for the record, the way I chose to word the poll options are merely for comedic effect. They're not intended to insult anyone who may have had an exceptionally hard time getting their license. That's why you should explain your "vote" in a post!

My test was so easy..it was too easy. I didn't even go out onto a heavily traveled road, or didn't have to parallel park :shock:

My one friend at another location didn't pass his first time because he didn't ask the tester to put on his seatbelt before he drove off

While we're embarrassing family members...

My Mom took her road test in NY 4 times!! And she failed every one!! She literally had to go to Florida to get a driver's license (no offense to Floridian's but it is notoriously easy to get a license there).

Supposedly, NY has some strict standards. They even tell you in the classes that 50% of the students WILL FAIL, because NYS has a quota that they are not allowed to exceed during a given week. I think that's pretty lame. The lady I had giving me my test was a ultra bitch too...

We have a graduating licensing system here in Ontario so we actually have to give two road tests a year apart. I cleared them both the first time. Though they take a point off each time you don't automatically switch to the right lane (like after taking a left hand turn) and I refused to do that and flunked that particular section of the test on both occassions. Aced everythign else though.....including the rules test 8)

I got my license first try. I still suck at driving tho.

I passed the permit test by score of 80, which was the cutoff. Lucky me.

I felt bad for my sis when she took her test. The first time she took it, her neon was in the shop with a blown head gasket, so she had to take it in a dodge grand caravan. She passed every part of it parallel parking and what not, but on the way out hopped a curve and failed.
