The failed my drivers license test the first time thread...

I remember I was so nervous that I almost hit someone in the crosswalk at my first light. I failed the first time, but I wish I had gone down swinging like this kid...

I failed my driver's test the first time, by one point. That was my 16th birthday & I was so bummed.

Well I'm with you fellers.

Re: The failed my drivers license test the first time thread...

i passed mine with an 80% (out of 100% of course)

the people got pissed at me because i didnt drive with two hands all the time. i told them i was used to one and that i felt safer using one but they didnt agree. then they asked me how im going to drive when i get my car and i told them with one since it was going to be a stick shift and this is a big city involving lots of up/down shifting.

from there they proceeded to pull out a fuckin pizza pan from the backseat and make me pretend to drive a pizza dish i told them that was ridiculous and wanted to know why there was a pizza pan in the backseat of the car. i gave up and told them i would do it with two hands haha.

Evo VIII: not stock.

I passed first time as well but dont remember the percentage. I also think its easier to drive with just one hand. To me it feels like i have more control and can keep the car more steady. My elbow is usually on the armrest and my left hand holding the wheel about midway down. When i drive with two hands it makes me feel like each hand is fighting for which way the steering wheel should go.

Lots of stuff For Sale with more coming...
