    Feel like i could cry my eyes out!!

    my hubby had his driving test this morning, he just called me and they failed him right near the end because of a taxi:growlmad::nope:

    its his first test in 13 years and he CAN drive!!

    honestly i feel so gutted for him :(

    he cant get another one booked in now til after the New Year as his driving instructor's wife is having her baby any day so he wont book his car out.

    i had a card all written out for him saying well done and stuff, i know he was so nervous last night but we honestly thought he'd pass!
    :hugs::nope:xx

    Oh how awful. What did the taxi do?

    I failed my first test for 'going over the centre line' because there was a huge pothole in the road and I went around it, at 20 mph, after checking mirrors etc (no traffic to be seen)... just no common sense sometimes in these things.

    i might see if he can book with someone else, he needs to do it soon or it'll ruin his xmas cos i know he gets really stressed about stuff like this :(

    he was turning right and a taxi came bombing round as he was about to pull out - was a blind corner too he said - hes blaming himself as the instructor said he had a perfect drive the whole time - if that taxi driver had just been 2 mins later he would have passed :( its stupid!

    Awww.

    I always feel disappointment for a loved one a lot stronger than disappointment for myself and just want to make it all better, so I totally get why you feel like crying.

    Aww, thats such a shame.

    Try and see if another instructor would be willing to lend out their car?

    Hun this happened to me at the start of december (well similar) had minimum minors but got one serious - This was for not putting my handbrake on at a stop sign even though I stopped He said I had to put my handbrake on then move off...

    So frustrating and I really feel for you especially as it was for someone elses error :(

    See if he can get in with another instructor just to take him to the test - I cant get in now till mid jan either - Bet he does it next time xxxx

    Awwww hun i know how you feel :(
    I failed my driving test too and I CAN DRIVE! :( But the stupid man decided to fail me.
    I was coming down a duel carrage way and there was a parked car, i spotted it, slowed right down, indercated to go out, waited till the white van besides me had gone past and pulled out.
    He failed me and his reson was i pulled out to close behind the white van! he said if i would of waited 2seconds i would of passed! I was soooooooooo angry lol and otherwide i only got 3minors!
    Never mind eh! Im sure he'll pass next time!

    this is so true, when i failed my first it was in the industrial estate and a learner was reversing round the corner so i waited till they had finished the manouver, which is what we always did on lessons, any way the twat failed me for hesitation :( have to say though that was about 7 years ago and i havent hesitated since lol

    Yep see I have never been taught that either?? otherwise I would have done it??He said it wasnt even as though you didnt stop - he said you must apply your handbrake at stop signs and because you didnt this was classed as breaking the law so I have to fail you becasue of that :wacko: Didnt want to argue with him though incase I get him next time....:dohh:
    But was quite annoyed at my instructor who said afterwards - Ah I have had the best drivers go down at that stop sign... SO WTF didnt you tell me ...!!
