Well, I failed.
The woman took me around for 25 minutes in this tiny town and I think I must have gone on every street possible! She had to admit I pulled out of parking perfectly, did my stops great (only one minor on being too hesitant on one stop) and I got a minor for not looking enough at the railroad tracks. I also forgot to turn my wheels to the left on the hill. I forgot it I think because I thought it would be angle or something and it was parallel so that confused me. I did however remember the handbrake and everything else. That would have been about 25 points and you are allowed 75 to pass.
I did the parallel parking absolutely perfect - she even had to admit that.
She then told me that I did not shoulder check to the right when turning right -
- I wasn't taught that, but I will have to remember that. What she really dinged me on was that I did not turn into my first available lane. Ummmm.... what!!??? In this little town there are not 4 lane roads! If I were to do what she was saying I would have to be driving where people were parallel parked along the road.
I was driving where everyone else in town was - it is a two lane road for goodness sakes! She completely failed me by racking up those points on those right turns.
She made me do at least 6-8 right turns and made sure to ding me each time for not turning "into my available lane".
I was just horrified - I didn't really know what to say! It wasn't even making any sense. After, my mom looked at the sheet and she said I should have easily passed. She had me take her on those streets and show me what I did, and she was real confused what I did wrong. She thinks the woman was out to fail me. The three other people that have taken the test there said their's was about 10 minutes. Well, mine was 25 min. and it is such a tiny town she had me go on almost every street! I personally got the feeling that she was out to fail me. She however could not find one thing to auto fail me on so she had to rack up the points on those turns I guess. I think part of the problem is I haven't taken Driver's Ed so she kinda held that against me.
My mom had to drive me home I was crying so much, but I guess I tried my best and I'm just going to have to take it again. Sorry for the rant - I'm kinda still upset!
