Driving news

The worst happened......the YFG passed [which IS good] but the EFG failed :(

The YFG did extremely well to pass with only one minor, but the EFG had a catastrophe at a junction: the lights changed and she did not know that she had to move forward to trigger a sensor which would change the filter light to stop the opposing traffic so that her lane of traffic could move forward.  Because she didn't move, the lights went through the cycle back to red and she held up the whole lane - so that caused the fail.  She'll do it again, and should be fine. Apparently she executed an immaculate three point turn.

The YFG has been out on her first solo drive - she went and did the grocery shopping yesterday morning whilst I was at work. She's on half term so she thought she would get that nerve wracking first trip over and done with. She's out in the village tonight at her best friend's house having a takeaway but I think she should be home soon.

Thank you for continuing to read. Lovely to read all the comments on the last post.

Congratultions to both your daughters for taking the test. It's nerve wracking and I'm sure the elder will pass it next time

Lots of congratulations to the YFG - and commiserations to the EFG.

My older daughter only passed her test six months ago once she had started Uni after deferring for a year, and younger has just passed at 17 while still at school.
They are also somehow supposed to share a car. It does not always go smoothly or look nice, I have to admit!

It is said that the best drivers pass second time.

She'll get there in the End! But how frustrating. Many of us have to do it twice...
