So /o/ l failed my driving test. My error was not checking for bikers in the bike lane. Does /o/ have any fail stories? I'm actually feeling down from this stupid shit.

I passed on my first try as well with only one 'error' being that i turned a tad too slow one time and already knew he was going to say something about it...

.. but I had driving classes where they picked me up at my house and let me drive for 1.5 hours for about a month and also had me go through mock tests probably 8 times before taking the real test. The real test is insanely easy if you already know what they'll tell you to do. parallel parking is stupidly easy as long as you back in slowly. I was barely even listening to the tester because I knew everything he was going to do(still listening to him of course, don't fucking ignore the dude, he can fail you for anything). I'm still probably a better driver than most kids that don't go to 'driving school', though.

I had no driving school. Just 3 years of lessons with my sister teaching me how to drive and a 30 minute lesson with my father on how to drive stick. I was not allowed to get my license until my parents were sure I could confidently drive stick. I was 19 when i finally took the test. Long story on the reason for the weight, but long story short: my sister taught me things you'll never learn in a normal driving school (burnouts, drifting, evasive maneuvers, etc.)

In Maryland you have to go to driving school to get a certificate to take the driving test. But in DC they just hand you a book and they don't even verify that you read it. Funny considering the illiteracy rate in "youth" cities.

You could take the test the next week with no experience and they would most likely pass you.

That's retarded. Their job is to make sure you're ready to join everyone else on the road as a confident driver, not help you cheat it. I only had to go to a driving school for an hour for 4 weeks to take a "safety course" which was just an excuse to show us VHS videos of them scraping people's bodies off the roads.
That said, the guy who ran the driving school was a fucking riot. I miss him.
Friend of mine went to that driving school after I finished the course and always had funny stories about him. Surprisingly, he asked her about me often. He died of a heart attack like a year later.

Then I went to a rural as fuck dmv known for being easy, to get there you have to take curvy as fuck roads. They asked if I dove there myself. I said yes. Then they told me to sit down and they took my photo for the license and had me to the signs test and then sent me on my way with my license. I think they actually got shut down for doing stuff like that several years ago, or everyone was fired.

Everyone going "herp derp test is easy" needs to keep in mind that each testing station is wildly different. I passed first try, but the route had lots of instant fails, like turning right onto a two-lane road where the right lane immediately ends (instant fail unless you turn into the right-most lane, and then immediately merge left before the dashed lines disappear.) They also wouldn't tell you if you instant-failed until the very end of the test, meaning if you, say, obstructed the sidewalk on your way out of the parking lot, they'd still let you fruitlessly drive the rest of the course.

The testing station one city over had a far simpler route, no three-point turn, no parallel parking, or anything beyond a spin around the block. It's entirely possible that OP is still faget, but some tests are more comprehensive than others.

Don't worry, OP. I failed mine 3 times. Had to retake my permit's test before I passed on the 4th try.

First fail was because I went 15mph in a residential area (speed limit is 25-30).

Second fail was because I didn't yield to someone trying to make a U-turn. They made eye contact with me, but I didn't pay attention. I could of caused an accident.

Third time was because I didn't yield to a guy exiting the DMV in the wrong lane. Granted, he's a dumbass, but I still should of assessed the situation and reacted accordingly.

It took me 6 months of practice and frustration before I passed. 6 fucking months. So believe me, OP. It could be worse.

My advice is: don't focus too much on the mechanics of driving (like godly braking, accelerating and parking). Focus on driver etiquette (yielding, signaling) and traffic laws (when can you make a turn, what is the speed limit in a commercial area).

Poor car handling will dock you a few points. Making an unsafe or illegal maneuver because your lazy dumbass didn't read the DMV handbook will instantly fail you.

This was in California, BTW. It's babby tier compared to EU driver's test. If I can do it, you can do it.
