Killer Cars: Let's share CSBs on how pathetic our "driving tests" actually were.

Mine? In NH, all that was required at the time was to drive a square mile involving only one stoplight intersection and a single stop sign, then back into a parking space at the DMV. This was at (IIRC) the DMV in Milford.


shiat, I didn't even have to take a test. Just 4 weekends of Driver's Ed and X number of hours driving in the car with a certified instructor and they gave me my license.

Slaves2Darkness: jehovahs witness protection: PMS much?

Millennial, she expected to be given all the answer and pass, because she tried really hard. Just like she passed all her grade school classes. Stupid biatch should have just done what everyone else does and have mommy or daddy bribe the driving instructor.


That seems to be the new hotness - automatic passing. Up in Manitoba, Canada, they just started doing that a couple years ago - you child never fails a grade, they keep moving through and getting into the next grade even if they fail their tests. I just can't understand the logic, but I can almost guarantee it develops people like this girl who feels entitled to pass just because she showed up.

it going to get crazy when all these entitled kids show up to work late or don't finish a job and then wonder why unemployment is hitting new records. Unions could make a huge comeback from all this...

Wow.

No parallel parking requirement? I guess standards have been slipping in recent decades...


I was dinged on that because the truck I used for my test had the turning radius of a drunken aircraft carrier. It was not physically possible to parallel park. The same thing for backing out of an alley onto a street. You were supposed to do it and make the corner into a normal parking space. Yeah right. With a turning radius of 39'-4 1/2"? That ain't happening.

Mine was just over 45 minutes of driving including left and right turns from major to minor roads, left and right turns from minor to major roads, traffic lights, roundabouts, duel carriageway at national speed limit and the two manoeuvres were the three point turn and reversing round a corner (didn't have to parallel park).

Anyone who says the British driving test is hard can't drive for shiat.

Blame the way teachers are evaluated. Kid fails a class because he's lazy as shiat, doesn't study, and goes to class stoned? Teacher gets docked a little bit of pay. Kid passes? That's good, teacher gets a little bit better pay.

They do it in BC too. Last year, our daughter was in grade three. She has *significant* learning disabilities due to her FASD. Most of the homework they gave her was beyond her ability, but because she was well behaved, she wasn't considered a "problem". When we received her final report card, we expected that she'd be held back and made to repeat grade 3. Nope. "Promoted to Grade 4! Good job!".

We withdrew her from the public school system and enrolled her in a private school that appears to take things seriously (half way through this year, her academic progress was somewhere between grade 1 and grade 2).

W.T.F.??? Do people think this will really help things in the long run?

I took the test twice. I failed the first time because. My front bumper went over a white line and I killed someone. the guy the first time was really stressing me out, but the second time I had a real laid back nice guy give me the test. It was like I had both instructors from the movie License to Drive.

Mid '80's in St. Louis. It was a spring day, and by the time I got in, took the tests and did the paperwork (I had just moved there and had to switch from IL to MO stuff, was doing my license and plates all at once), the instructor and I got in the car and it just started POURING rain. Before we could get out of the parking lot the flood drains were geysering. He had me drive around the block, turn back into the parking lot, then he said "you're good, park in front of the door".

r1niceboy: How the hell do you fail a driving test in the US? I had to drive around the block and not cause a fatality. I like to take driving tests in different countries I've stayed in. The Bermuda one was quite practical, the South African was just driving around and not making any manouver more complex than a turn, and the Turkish one was hilariously easy. The British test, on the other hand.... I had a three point turn on a hill like a cliff face, reversing round a corner so sharp you shave with it, parallel parking into a space two yards longer than the length of the car I drove, then it started pouring down so I had to go around a five lane roundabout during rush hour.


Buddy of mine from H.S. failed by slamming on the brakes so hard that the instructor's head hit the dashboard.  That'll do it.

vudukungfu: One lives in a ritzy neighborhood in SC and one in ritzy neighborhood in VA and when it snows, the neighbor email their grocery lists to them, they go shopping, and get free groceries out of it.
They do know how to drive. Their husbands (Vets, and officers) not so much.


I assume by "vets" you mean veterans, and not animal physicians.  My theory on the direct relationship between the number of idiot drivers and the percentage of military personnel in the area is derived from the assumption that A) the military attracts the dumbest (and by association worst behind the wheel) of us from around the nation and B) subsequently centralizes us into only a few small locations throughout the country.

My only good driving test story...

A friend of mine needed to take his test, and asked to borrow my car. So, i got ride in the back seat to see this.

He did great. Even the parallel parking in one shot. He was golden.
The very last step of the course is a stop sign, then you make a left and park.

As he is approaching the sign, he asks the instructor, "Do I really need to stop here?" "Oh, no... Don't worry about it."

So, he drove through the sign, and promptly failed the test.

Idiot.

I took my road test in a Pinto station wagon. That car could make a U-turn on a two-lane street without hitting either curb. Parallel parking wasn't an issue.

WhippingBoy: W.T.F.??? Do people think this will really help things in the long run?


Wrong question.

The correct question: which elected or appointed officials charged with making these policies are responsible for ANYTHING AT ALL in the long run?

The answer: none. And thus, the answer to your question as well.

grinding_journalist: CSB: While studying in London at a school that shared campus space with the London College of Business, I had the chance to sit down with a middle-eastern oil-money (heiress? princess? daughter? was never sure) person. She had a no-joke Hunter Thompson Fear-and-Loathing drug collection suitcase that made her very popular amongst the Americans studying abroad at Regent's College, and I was invited to one of said sessions. Over some of the finest consumables I've ever had, the conversation naturally turned to her opulent lifestyle (she was one of the ones who was upset that the ATM in the lobby would only let her withdraw 1000 GBP/day) and how different things were when money was never, ever, EVER an obstacle to anything she did. Since I'm into cars, and the abundance of $100k cars in the student parking lot was always of great interest to me, I asked her what she drove.

Her: Oh, I don't drive.
Me: Why not? You can afford literally any car in the world; you don't want to?
Her: Not really. My dad offered to buy me a Mercedes SL65 (the V12 TT that ran about $165k) if I attempt my driver's test.
Me; Uh, ATTEMPT? Like, you don't even have to pass it and he'll give you a damn near $200,000 car?
Her: Yeah. Not really interested.
Me: Uh....care to explain why? I'd kill to have a car like that for a DAY.
Her: Well, for one, where I live, you have to take classes for a couple weeks that you can't buy your way out of and they're a pain in the ass and two, I have a man outside, right now, sitting in a Rolls Royce. I pick up my phone, call him, and tell him where I want to go. He's also security, a place-in-line holder, shopping-bag-carrier, and can cook a decent meal if he needs to. So, why would I ever drive myself anywhere when I can ride around in the backseat of a Rolls while texting my friends and drinking a latte, any time, any day, to anywhere? As a bonus, not having to drive myself means I can get as farked up as I want and never have to worry about getting home safely, ...

Killer Cars: Forbidden Doughnut: No parallel parking requirement? I guess standards have been slipping in recent decades...

Again, it was New Hampshire, a state that (I believe) still does not require vehicle owners to have insurance. It only makes sense, I guess, that if you can drive for a couple minutes in a straight line, you are apparently good to go for a license there.

I remember spending an entire weekend parallel parking with my Dad getting ready for said test, and I just didn't have the heart to tell him it wasn't needed for the real thing.

I failed my first test, had some really strict, uptight woman and was taking the test in a busy neighboring town. Lot's of traffic, intersections, parallel parking, the whole bit. The second time I took it in my small home town and got a nice old man as my instructor. He basically had me drive down a quiet country road, pull over to the side to park (not parallel) and that was that.

Ok, that's farking hilarious. I was there in the spring of '05; it was just rainy/wet most of the time. Would be even funnier if their cars weren't so nice...here are a few examples, as I'm sure you recall the like. Car porn time!

That's the one, on both counts. We didn't associate with them very much; how the shared space worked I never really figured out.

lunkhed: I was expecting a test candidate to be examined by an examiner.

Do instructors examine in Ohio?



When I took my driving test in Ohio 10+ years ago, the examiners were Highway Patrol officers.

Chowder_17: Ohio doesn't have a parallel parking requirement for it's driving test.

The maneuverability test is conducted in two steps. Each step is to be completed in one continuous motion. The examiner will instruct you to steer to the right or left of the point marker.

Step One: You must drive forward through a box (9' by 20') formed by 4 markers. Steer to the right or left of the "point" marker (20' ahead of box in center of course) as directed by the examiner. Steer to a straight ahead course and stop when the rear bumper of your car is even with the "point" marker and generally parallel with the course.

Step Two: From your stopped position at the end of Step One, you must be back past the "point" marker. Straighten your car and back through the box and come to a stop with your front bumper even with the two rear markers and generally parallel with the course. If you stop your vehicle because of striking a marker, you will have to go back to start and begin again (See below).

Step Two Continued: Before the test is complete, your vehicle must be removed from the test area without running over a marker or committing any other dangerous action.

Scoring: Points are deducted for:

Stopping to check progress; minus 5 for each occurrence


Bumping markers; minus 5 for each occurrence


Misjudging stopping distance; minus 5 for each occurrence


Not parallel with test area; minus 10 for each occurrence


Immediate failure=running over or knocking down a marker or other dangerous action.
Passing Score: Applicant will have passed this portion of the examination provided he does not receive a minus score in excess of 25 points.

/Received my DL in Ohio
//Still can't parallel park....


I took my driving test in the winter, scored 100%. I failed manuverability twice, passed it on the 3rd try with 100%.

In jersey you get your permit automatically by being if age...that's it hit sixteen and they go heres a permit you can drive as long as youre with another licensed driver bada Bing bada boom.
So by the time I go for my real license and test I've been driving for a good while...they have a legit course you drive through and the very first thing is a t intersection so I roll up look both ways and go without stopping. The instructor is dumbfounded...you just ran a stop sign!...n me being a smart ass goes ...well there was no one coming... (On a dmv course built in a parking lot no shiat Sherlock) so for whatever reason he let's me keep going n I get to parallel parking which i suck at...I got in the spot but like three feet away he just goes I think were done...I'm like farkkkk. So we get back round front and he's just shaking his head going why then says that yea passing me anyway

I did driver's ed and took my driving test around '98/'99 in the suburbs. I didn't have to do much. Just drive around the block, not blow traffic lights or stop signs and pull into a parking space.

We didn't learn about parallel parking at all (I learned in the 'burbs) much to my parents' amusement (they learned in Chicago).

They made sure I could parallel park anyway and I'm astonished by how many of my friends, both male and female, cannot.

Pert: Pass the UK driving tests (yes, plural) or even worse, the motorbike tests, and we'll talk.


UK license, both categories A and B (that's car and motorbike) and did the motorbike bit three years ago. The motorbike bit isn't that hard if you are a decent rider but if you are a poor rider then you will never pass. That's the reason why over 70% of all bike "accidents" are the fault of the over road users. Bikes aren't dangerous, it's the muppets in the cars that are dangerous.

CSB During the road section of my bike test the radio packed up near the start just after the duel carriageway section. After 5 minutes of faffing the first section was left, right, 2nd left then stop. After that he just said ride back to the test centre. Didn't panic and passed.

Norfolking Chance: How on gods green earth do you fail an American driving test?

If you have the brain power to chew gum and walk at the same time you can pass it.

/just you try and pass a Finnish driving test
//if you can't drift you can't pass



I passed the driving exam on the first try. However, it did take me three years to learn to drive. I thought if you turned the steering wheel 90º the car should turn 90º...

\I'm just a little too literal, it seems
\\Funny enough, I have a perfect driving record

GanjSmokr: Mad Scientist: Marshal805: hbk72777: $500 says this girl was black

$1 million says your a racist jagoff.

$1 says you're bad at grammar.

$5 says all 3 of you are right.


$10 says all 4 of you are right.

Gabrielmot: ITGreen: uncleacid: Where I live you get the results in the mail. So you kill the postman.

Really?  You can't even drive home?  That's the victory lap.

That's so odd... Why would they mail them?

I remember picking up one of the cones and throwing it at the tester while doing donuts in the parking lot afterwards, yelling, "See you later sucker!"


Lemme guess... Chevy Nova, right?
