    I have test anxiety (dunno if it's the english wording for it) and failed the theory the first time, then I decided to take a Jägermeister before the test and it worked... on the practical test as well - the only time in my life I was actually driving with alcohol in my blood, since I usually don't drink at all. xD

    Yeah Hazard perception is a waste of time. First time tried to find the hazards. Fail. Second time randomly clicked to a semi regular patern. Pass. Whoever got paid far too much money to come up with this part of the test is a total twat.

    One time the car dealer locked me in the dealership until I bought the car.The car also had rust but I was rushed to paperwork and I said I will look at others and they lock me up. Then I called the police. When they came the some of the dealership employees were arrested.I am American by the way. The car was a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan.

    The hazard perception part of the theory test is a load of bollocks. 50/50 on the multiple choice and 47/70 (IIRC) on the hazard perception - below 45 was a fail that applied to the whole test.

    I failed my first Practical on a single major when pulling out of the test centre, I had to go through the entire test and nailed everything else had 0 minors..the test instructor was an utter *astard. 2 months later I get a cancellation and I'm stuck with the same tester.. I passed that one with 6 minors 🤪

    I’d like to share my first and thankfully only failed driving test story: I had to merge onto a blind intersection and then decided to “roll through” - only to realize halfway through I was on ramming course with the guy on the other side. Thankfully he reacted quickly, no damage done. Ego hurt but happy there was no damage done, I got into the passenger seat of my driving instructor. He then decided to make up for lost time by doing over over double the speed limit towards his next student. Needless to say - I had opinions regarding who should’ve had a license. Love the show, carry on! Greetings from The Netherlands

She went on ebay and listed his Lotus Esprit for 50 pence Buy it Now, had to be picked up the same day. It sold within five minutes.

    I changed brake pads and discs all round, and I stupidly adjusted the drum brake part of a combined disk/drum type. I had also pulled gearbox, differential, all fluids and front suspension the same day to sort clutch etc it took me hours on my 350z... All went ok got to the last job of adjusting the drum brake for handbrake... Overtightened slightly did final checks all seemed ok. I litreally tweaked the drum break for perfection and litreally forgot to double check did everything else spot on!!!.. Long story short driving down motorway... I smell burning..... And then why car felt v funny sods law in a good way this happened right round the corner from my friend s phew. Jacked it up... Wheel almost came off it disintegrated the wheel bearing from the heat the driveshaft nut keeping it on.. Regressed and repacked the shaft and put new grease and bearing... Moral don't get too excited :)

    I never failed any of my tests, but I had a friend in school who failed his moped (max 50cc, max 45km/h in where I live) theory test 14 times. It was just before the test became more expensive, so he ended up paying near the same amount I did for my license even with the 10x cheaper version, well, if you get it right the first time.

    I used to work at a Vauxhall dealership in Aylesbury, it was a busy week and we had sold a lot of cars, my mate Dan had the weekend off and so the cars he had sold had to be prepped for handover for Monday morning, so at the end of play Friday he was keen to get down the pub. As with all car dealerships one of the last things to do is to run round the pitch shutting all the car boot doors, for those of you that don't know it's a stupid thing that all cars on car sales sites that are for sale have their boot open and for weekends or special occasions some balloons are attached to the wipers ones that are sold you keep locked. So Dan and I run round the dealership shutting the boots at warp speed and our mates Dave and Stav lock them. A busy weekend ensues for me and the rest of the crew and Dan has a blinder of a weekend on the lash, Monday morning Dan goes to move the cars he sold on Friday round to the valet bay to get them cleaned and ready for handover to the lucky new owners, all of a sudden a loud scream is heard across the pitch, we all rush over to find Dan looking very, very, very upset, " a cat" he says "a fucking cat" we look into the car and immediately regret it, the stench of cat piss and poo is overwhelming, it turns out during our record breaking speed run we had failed to notice a local cat that had fallen asleep in the Zafira 1.8 Sxi that Dan had sold on Friday and the feral feline had been trapped in all weekend. As any cat owner will tell you, litter box cleaning is not fun, it's one of the most disgusting things you can experience, now this car was being collected in two hours by a lovely lady who had three kids, blind panic ensued, first port of call, the valeters, "no" said Simi our Ghanaian Valeter (this is an edited version he told us to go away with more embellishment) so in a blind panic with no idea we scooped out the cat shit with blue roll, went to Halfords and bought as much pine fresh car freshener liquid as we could carry, we POURED that stuff into every bit of fabric we could get to, seats, door cards, carpets, headliner I mean everywhere even down the vents. The lady came and collected her Zafira and we told her that we had only just finished cleaning the car, that the scent might be a bit strong, so she should drive home with the windows down. An old saying in car sales is that you should wave goodbye till you can't see the tail lights, we didn't, we waited till she got out of the car park and ran to our cars and drove to the pub. We never heard from that lady again, we can either assume that our pine fresh mask of freshness hid the smell forever or alternatively she died from the toxic fume combination of pine and cat piss ammonia on the way home, either way i'm never going to buy a 2006 green Zafira Sxi just in-case, I would recommend you do the same...
