When I was learning I drove right over a traffic circle (or roundabout if you like), well it was either that or ramp over the curb...

During one of my lessons I stalled half way round a roundabout and had to rely on the car's momentum to get me the rest of the way round >.<

it wasn't me but we go driving in groups for our tests...anyways one of the girls is having a hard time going 25mph but then misses a turn and ends up on a highway where the speed limit is 45mph and most people go sixty...she stops in the middle of the intersection, the light changes, traffic starts coming at us, she's crying, we're yelling, teacher is white, leans over and presses the accelerator...horns blaring

Driving tests are strange, so much of it is down to chance and how nervous you are on the day, plus what everyone else you meet on the road happens to be doing (of course lots of practice helps, too).

I failed mine cos I amdea couple of stupid mistakes, must've been more nervous than I thought I never make those mistakes usually. Weird thing is thought I felt so confident throughout the entire test which is why it was such a bummer when I found I'd failed.
