I failed my road test for the second time yesterday! Honestly, I feel so dumb. I'm 17, I really do need my license so I could drive to work and school, but I can't get it! I keep on fucking up on the parallel parking, and yesterday, I didn't yield at a t-intersection or fully stop long enough. The instructor told my dad that he is confident in my driving, but can't pass me because of these major mistakes that could get me a ticket. He said that he's sure I'll pass the next time, but I have really bad anxiety, which makes the road test 100x harder for me. It took me about 5 tries to pass the written test, but I don't have the money to fail the road test 5 times. I already spent $200, and tbh, I'm a broke as teenager. How many tries did it take you to pass and if you can, please comment what age. 😟 (And please don't lie)

Here's the thing, once you pass it, nobody is gonna remember on how many times you didn't pass it, same applies for study tests, failed a test? No problem, you've more experience now, you'll pass it.
At work places, nobody asks for whether you did the top in your class, what subjects you aced it, what they want to see is that you've a diploma that you have passed.
The bottom line here is, don't feel depressed because you didn't pass it, just keep trying and eventually you'll pass it.
It took me 3x fails to pass it, once the expert was in a bad mood, second one looked at every unnecessary detail, third one said I drive really good, a couple of points to look after and then I'll ace it, the 4th one said 'I have no clue what other 3 had to complain about? I had nothing of the points they have written'.
You can imagine how it was for me the first 3 times, but looking back at it, I improved each time & eventually got it, nobody talks about that I failed it 3 times, knowing that I've a license is all where it counts.
So chin up and keep doing your best, eventually you'll nail it.3

Well I pray that I will be able to pass the written exam as well as when I will get a car to learn how to drive. Overall I believe that you shouldn't rush this just because you HAVE to drive now. That is not the right attitude to have when you need to learn how to be a safe driver, not just a driver. Because in the end, you have crazy drivers out on the road who have the license legally but don't care. I lost a cousin who died by a unsafe driver. My father last year a week before my late mother passed away ended up in an accident where somebody in a Ferrari rammed into my mother's van, and it's completely totaled. It is not a joke.
Learn to be a safe driver. Your instructor believes in you and knows you can do this. Find out where you lack at as a weakness and master that while perfecting the areas you already know last. I believe that you can pass this, but change your attitude towards that. You need to look at this differently.0
