For goodness sake just give up...

Woman fails Theory Test 110 times!
Quote
The unnamed learner, from Southwark, south-east London, spent a staggering £3,410 in a bid to show she knows the rules and dangers of the road.

Quote
They also showed that even when learners managed to pass the theory test, some still struggled to master the practical exam.
One such example was a middle-aged man who failed the practical driving test a record 36 times - thankfully, passing on his 37th attempt.

Could anyone who takes that number of attempts really be considered good enough. I suppose one thought is that they must be if they eventually passed - but could it just have been a lucky day Undecided

With ref to the last line, Mav..... Lucky day ?  well, next time you go out on the road,..... ask someone to "pretend" they are a driving examiner, and get them to tally up how many mistakes you make,.... !.. Of course,... that will be "your lucky day"... and if you didn`t cause an accident,..... everyone elses "lucky day"...  ! ! ! ! ! ..  Wink
. a good one to try out, as a passenger, I will be chatting to the driver, ( as you do ),... then suddenly ask them...... " what was the last road sign you passed ? "
