Selkinor Posted September 2, 2011 Share Posted September 2, 2011 I'm feeling a little down right now, partly for failing a driving test, and partly because I feel like I was attacked on a personal level. Not only did I put it off until way after my eighteenth birthday, I managed to blow it within seconds of starting the test. Basically, I made a wide turn coming out of the DMV driveway and there was an oncoming car. The instructor slammed on the breaks and told me to slow down. But that was that, she was already writing out an essay and failing me. The test only lasted about two more minutes as I circled around the block and went back into the parking lot. I get it, almost hitting a car warrants a fail. Now, what irks me is she started telling me how I'm really stiff and nervous and I didn't seem respondent to her when she first greeted me. I mean, it was a little uncalled for. It's just my personality, I have a very nervous disposition (my foot started shaking uncontrollable the whole test after the whole almost-hit-a-car incident), and pretty bad social phobia. It took all I could muster to look her in the eye and smile when she said hello instead of duck behind the steering wheel or something. I also have very, very poor motor skills. I'm not sure what it is, but honestly I walk into walls sometimes. I feel like I shouldn't be driving, and if it was up to me I wouldn't be, but I can't be driven around everywhere forever. I'm dreading going back to take the test again next week, at the same DMV. I really don't feel confident even though several driving instructors have told me I can drive (not drive well, but not drive awful, either). Link to comment
