Today i failed my 3rd driving test because i had a lapse of observation for a split second.
I was driving perfectly then i got to the Independent Driving part and i was approaching a big roundabout, i was supposed to take the 2nd exit but i
missed that and was told to go round again and correct myself, when i was coming back around i didn't see the car on my left flying out of the
junction (no indicators or anything) and i didn't give way, even thought the other car was miles away from me i didn't stop and give way . Nerves
got the better of me again.
I got 1 serious fault (above) and 4 minor driver faults.
Anyone got any tips to help me calm down before and when i'm taking my test again?
If you were going around a roundabout, drivers on the left have to give way for you and anyone flying out as you said was breaking the law and not
you. You would have had to slow down and expect things like this happening because it does all the time, believe you me. You have got to give way to
traffic coming from the right on a roundabout.
Did you have your indicator on at the time ready for the second exit?
Don't give up, put it behind you and make sure you are 100% ready the next time. Expect the unexpected.
I have had my car licence for 38 years and class 1 HGV for 35 years and motor bike licence for same time and licence is clean so I do know what I'm
I failed the first time because I didn't know my hand signals but made sure I knew them backwards the second time and didn't look back, but I did
feel like giving up when I failed, most do, but tomorrow is another day. Maybe if that clown hadn't done that you would have passed, wrong place
Best of luck for the next time.....
