Default So much for that first one...

Dang, I took my first driving text on May 25th and before I got to the driving part I already failed the test. Man, the dude first came up to my window, tested me with what goes where and I must have stumbled on something and the guys was all, "Yeah, so you failed the test." My mom was in the car at first and he was all, "Would you mind stepping out of the car please ma'am?" Damn, I mean the guy sounded like a cop or something. Well, anyway my next test is on the 25th and should be able to pass it by then. Hehe! Wish me luck!

I failed twice I was too close to the other car when I tried to park, and I didn't break when the light turned yellow... -.-

Exactly, I had several cars behind me and didn't want to show them my emergency stop maneuver - but the examiner said I should have made a full stop regardless of a multi-crash.

Don't worry - just apply yourself to the next test.

Even Picard failed his first attempt to get into the academy, you'll get it on the second try!
