but I haven't for 6 years so I'm worried I've forgotten how.
and never plan to learn
more like +10 speed points.
is for INDIE POINTS
and resolved to follow their lead
If you drive your parents' car that is included.
It had this immobiliser keypad by the gear stick which you had to put a code into to make the car work. I told girls I was punching in the co-ordinates of our destination.
The last I saw of it it was wrapped around a lamp post.
but i do have to put a code in to start the tape player every time i start it up
I also rent a alfa romeo mito once a week
but am not gay in the slightest. I don't think...
Audi's are pretty damn awesome and amazing to drive.
Mito = GAY
(drive my Dad's i10 when I go visit them)
'06 Clio to be precise
...until it becomes a cube in approximately 36 hours
Hope you're alright. How did it happen?
there's all the basic details in the Friday thread. Sorry for being an attention seeker everyone!
it was ace.
Got my provisional when I was 17 and have never had a lesson. Growing up in London driving always seemed like a luxury rather than a necessity. Still alarmed how my mum managed to raise 6 kids without a car, mind. But then again: London.
..still saving up for a new car
How many times did it take you to pass your test?
A frankly embarrassing five for me. I'm a confident driver but in the test situation I'd become a complete nervous wreck.
I've been driving for eight years now though, and the nearest thing I've had to an accident was clipping the wing mirror of a parked car about a year after I passed - no damage caused.
i failed the theory once too :/
would have passed first time if I hadn't committed a major fault a couple of hundred yards away from the test centre as I was on my way back.
It was going so well and then I ran a red light
bizarre mistake to make really, I must have thought I had it in the bag and stopped concentrating. The examiner was very apologetic but it was a bit of a ballache because I'd only committed three minors.
Came to a junction with far too many lights in too short a distance with confusing road markings.
The lights were on red, but the stop line was quite a way before the lights, there was another set of lights for the same place (if that makes sense?) about 20 yards further ahead, complete with ANOTHER stop line, so I was going to continue to that line :/
First test the examiner asked me to turn right into a side road, but there was a car parked directly across from the junction and I had to go across the centre line to make it through - major fault, automatic fail.
The second one I failed for undue hesitation when turning right off off a major road. Didn't think it was my fault though as my instructor had got a different car that day and it had a smaller engine than the one I was used to, so was being cautious.
then I can't help but feel glad for the sake of your local community that you did happen to fuck up at the end of your first shot.
and my hand kept brushing his fat thigh every time I went for a gear change, which proved to be a bit of a distraction.
You live in Bury as well don't you? Weeeeiiiiirrrrrrd.
On my first time I set off with the handbrake still on, and had to be told about it. Right at the fucking start of the test.
the second time i tried to drive away from the test centre before i put the keys in the ignition and still past. also, when i did pass it was exactly one year to the week of when i had my first lesson. i think a year is a long time.
I think I might have.
That was three years ago and now that I don't live in rural Worcestershire I don't even need your license, the DVLA.
It used to boil my piss after I failed even though I'm a cracking driver and some of the girls from sixth form who had passed couldn't bay park.
