18 Jul 08 Driving test 2

Today, I took my driving test again, hoping to do better than the last! Again, it was 0917, and at the test centre that was just across the road from college.

Again, my instructor took me for a short lesson before the test, practicing manoeuvres and a short drive. Then we spent about 15 minutes just chilling out listening to the radio where it announced that one of the local major roads had been closed due to a fatality.

This time, my overall speed and approach speeds for junctions was under control, just taking into account the weather conditions. I had a perfect drive, getting my reverse just right, handling meeting situations well, and only forgetting a couple of things (an indicator, and a blind-spot check). Then I done my turn in the road, and just bumped up onto the kerb.

And that was failure number two.

Next test already booked, and 60 quid on the credit card…
