I must admit even though I'm bin driving for years, I had to think about a few of these, but I did pass only getting one wrong. How did you do??

I bombed at a lousy 61%. Phooey! But in my defense, I had Driver's Ed classes in Canada and have since been certified in Europe and the US. I can't possibly remember how many feet away from a fire truck I should keep back (it's probably slightly different everywhere anyway).

There, now those justifications have made me feel MUCH better ;)

Driving? on Dec 16, 2011 @ 10:36 am

@Mamaluv 61% I would poke fun at you except I probably shouldn't talk because (here's the confession)... I don't know how to drive.

I was born/raised in Toronto, lived here all my life- there was and is no reason to learn to drive, I never got my G1 even.

Mamaluv like I said I had to really think about a few of these and I've bin driving here for years. You just don't think about it after awhile and maybe we all should retest ourselves more often.
Alex I can see why you wouldn't want to drive in Toronto, its crazy there!!

i did okay!! on Dec 16, 2011 @ 11:10 am

thanks for the test!! i did pretty well. I live in Canada so the test was a bit different. I think that every 5 years we should have to retest for our drivers licenses. I know lots of people who have forgotten everything. (They are bad drivers)

Most of what I got wrong was how many feet away from this or that... and in each case I erred on the side of too cautious. I try to park far from stop signs and always keep well back from emergency vehicles. It would appear I'm too careful of a driver :)

The other thing I got wrong was the speed limit in a school zone, but in my area, they are all the same so that was the number I gave. It turned out to be wrong.

There was one other I got wrong but I'm drawing a blank right now. I agree that people should probably be retested on occasion, but when it comes down to it, most accidents happen because people are on their cell phones, putting on makeup, changing a CD, eating food, or otherwise distracted. (Of course, things like alcohol, medical issues, drowsiness, excessive speed, etc are other huge and obvious factors)

So while a driving instructor might be tempted to throw the book at me, they should know that, excepting a few incidents over 10 years ago, I am accident-free and ticket-free. Does it really matter if I park too far away from a stop sign? Exactly.

I think your good, I'm like you knock on wood. I haven't had a ticket
not even for parking and I haven't had any accidents in all my years of
driving either. I sure had some close call from other moron though. I'll
never forget the time I had Mike in the car with me, he was only about
one at the time, so it scared the crap out of me even more. We were
coming up to a light that was a good half a block away from me when this
car full of teenager came up along side me to pull into the turning
lane to go left. There wasn't anyone in front of me and when I got to
about 50 feet from the light the moron that was driving the car full of
teenager swung into my lane and went flying around the corner. If I
hadn't slammed on my brakes, or he would had nailed us. I hit my brakes
so hard I went flying forward and knocked my shifter into neutral. When I
came to a stop I look back to see if Mike was alright in his car seat
and he was sitting there laughing. He thought it was fun the little
bugger. LOL Some collage kid run into me in a parking lot one time to,
but that was his fault not mine, so I consider myself to accident free. I
had Luke in the van that time. The guy ran the stop sign and hit me so
hard the van came off the ground. No fun!! Oh and by the way both of
these things happened in the spring when the roads were clear, so snow
had nothing to do with either of the idiots driving the way they were.
Has anyone else had a close call??
