ROLL OF HONOUR FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE PASSED THEIR TEST

This is the thread where you stand up and get your recognition for passing your test.

If you have passed your test over the last few months, put your results on this thread.

This will serve a couple of purposes. Firstly you will enjoy doing it, because of the celebrity status you will get from it.

But more importantly, you will show others who are learning that passing is achievable, we can also have a look at what is the average df's people get for tests and also what the average amount of times it takes people to pass.

You can put other comments on as well, but do try to keep to the topic of passing your test.

So the format should go something like this:

When did you pass:

How many attempts:

How many driver faults:

What time was your test:

How many hours (approx) did you have:

Which manouevres did you do:

Re: ROLL OF HONOUR FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE PASSED THEIR TEST

Not sure if this is the right place to put this,but , I think may give other learners some encouragement.

Had a pupil that had a rear end shunt  on test in june, 27/06/06, so the test was abandoned do to the pupil being so upset. Yesterday  27/07/06 she went and passed her driving test with only 7 minor faults. Needless to say, I was very proud of her yesterday, to see such a big smile on her face. Brilliant.
