Driving Test Horror Stories A humorous look at driving test fails around the world

By Edited Feb 13, 2014 0 0

Afraid of taking your driving test? Probably you shouldn't be, there isn't much chance that your test can go as badly as some of the ones listed below. In order to make you feel better (not to make you more nervous, honestly), here are some of the worst driving tests ever...

You Pass..... Failed....

This story is from an unnamed man in California, USA. This unlucky seventeen year old had actually completed his test, and had been told that all he needed to do was reverse into a parking space at the Department of Motor Vehicles (the US authority that grants driving licenses), and he would have passed with flying colours. Apparently the young man got rather overconfident at this point, and hit his accelerator a little too hard, ramming into the car parked in the spot behind his. Unfortunately, the car was a classic MG and pretty much crumpled the second it was hit. Even more unfortunately, the car belonged to the driving examiner. Needless to say, the young man did not receive his license that day.

Another Almost...

It's hard to feel sorry for this unnamed forty three year old from Texas, but he got so close. Apparently, he was first in line in the morning to be tested, and was taken out on his road test by an experienced instructor. He passed the test with excellent marks, and when both he and the examiner got out of the car after the test, he politely went around to the examiner's door and shook his hand, thanking him. It was then that the examiner noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath. The man readily admitted to having a drink to steady his nerves before his test, as he had already failed once and was particularly nervous. However, when breathalyzed by police called to the scene he was found to be over twice the legal limit required to drive. The instructor was reportedly quite surprised, and said the man had performed flawlessly on his test. Not only did the guy not get his license that day, but he also recieved a three year ban on driving...

Why Not Stop Trying?

An Essex woman is reportedly Britain's worst driver, after having taken the theoretical driving test one hundred and five times and failed it an equal number of times. At a cost of around thirty one pounds to take the test, she has spent over three thousand pounds to date, and still isn't allowed to drive. Experts are astonished that someone has managed to fail so many times, stating it as practically impossible. So if you don't pass the written test the first time around, don't be too worried. You've got another hundred and five chances before you're the worst driver in the country...

Third Time Lucky...

A young woman in Georgia failed her test for the third time after hitting a stationary car in a parking lot before driving out on the road to take her practical test. Apparently, this is not terribly unusual, and examiners at the testing centre are in the habit of parking their own cars at a shopping mall across the street to avoid getting them damaged. What is unusual about this woman is that she failed her first two tests in exactly the same way, by hitting parked cars in the car park before the test had even really started. The woman states that she has now given up on driving, and will be asking her boyfriend to drive her to the mall, as taking the test is just too stressful for her
