Wanted: A Car.

Postby Banksie » Thu Jul 17, 2008 9:40 am

I'm doing my driving test next month and need a car for if I pass. Anyone got one they can flog me (I'm looking in your direction, Sid!)?
You people don't understand. I'm not locked in here with you, you're locked in here with me!

Sorry Banksie, I'm down to a mere one car now - and it's a beauty! So hands off!

Still got my amp to sell, and an electric acoustic guitar thingy, plus 100 CD albums, 100 CD singles, plus a few promo and/or limited edition CDs. And a unique Peter Pan advertising thing (Probably 10' x 2'). And a metallic blue settee. And a weight training bench with weights. And some baby stuff (Maybe I should plug this on a different thread!).

Yeah - got three minors though.

One for observation on reverse parking and two for lane discipline I think it was. But fook it passed anyway.

Any majors and you fail.
I think it's up to 15 minors you're allowed, but more than 2 minors for the same thing and you fail.

16 minors = fail,
3 minors in the same category = fail.
1 major = fail,
1 dangerous = fail.

On top of the 50 theory questions, and 14 hazard perception clips you have to do, now you have to do a "Show me tell me" at the start of the test. where the examiner asks you things like; "Open the bonnet, identify where you would check the engine oil level and tell me how you would check that the engine has sufficient oil.", "Show me / explain how you would check that the power assisted steering is working before starting a journey." getting either of these wrong is a minor fault, so before you have even got into the car you could be on one minor fault.

In my day there were no written tests, you could run a red light, kill a pedestrian and still pass.

I went to mine thinking that if I passed, I passed and if I failed, I failed and would take it again.

But when I got to the test center my Instructor started talking to the examiner about City - :idea: - In my pocket - [nod]

So if you can, find something that you and the examiner like and talk about that it will help you relax quickly.

I started talking about footy on my test. The conversation lasted about two sentences, until the examiner announced he was a Leicester season ticket holder. Surprisingly I didn't pass :roll: :lol:

True. But when they ask you what you're supposed to do when you're getting out of a car, and you forget to mention something as trivial as looking for cyclists before opening the door, they count that towards a fail....
