Yes, Ive seen both these solutions too, theyre amazing.

Re: How to fail a driving test

Dexterous, Big Congratulations to your daughter. I bet shes glad to be able to get on the road after what shes been through!!

I mentioned in your previous thread on this subject about my 19 year old grandson whose driving test kept getting postponed due to the lockdown.
Well, he passed his test a few weeks ago and has worked hard at two jobs to buy himself a car.
This is when the real worry begins!

Re: How to fail a driving test

What on earth is a theory test? When I took mine back in 1962 it was 1/2 hr driving and 3 questions. Only time I didn't have a licence when I had my eye operation and had to surrender my licence and got it back after a DVLA eye test.
Never had an endorsement on my licence in all that time

Lets see
Rules of the road back then, see a panda car, give to the police driver a middle finger and put your foot down . Those morris minors were never quick enough to catch you. Hump back bridges used as take off platforms, shortest way at a roundabout was straight over the top.

Ok OK I am joking

Loads of free ones and free apps online. Worth having a go at them, as you'll soon discover how little you actually know!!

Gotta be tactical about this. What's the car worth, how much finance left on it etc?

Might be cheaper to pay off the debt rather than face a hike in insurance for a few years.

Re: How to fail a driving test

It could just be a sneaky way of making money - how much does it cost these days to take a test? Not that I am cynical

Good that it is all sorted anyway!
