Guy Passes His Driving Test On The 33rd Attempt
Driving tests can be really stressing ,especially when you keep trying to pass but you keep failing, most of us would pass on 2nd 3rd or even the 4th attempt,but this is a story about a man who passed on his 33rd attempt…must have spent alot of money on it,but he eventually got there in the end…….where there’s a will there’s a way lol
Forty-two-year old Christian, from South Yorkshire, took his first test in 1992, and apparently got quite a taste for it, going back another 32 times.
He told the Mirror: “I can’t believe I’ve actually finally passed after all these years. I’m still in shock!
“There was this one examiner at the Barnsley test centre who I used to pray I didn’t get. She was notoriously tough and she failed me every time.
“I had 56 lessons with my first instructor and eventually he told me to just give up as I would never pass.”
Christian, who eventually decided to take the automatic-only test, is now the proud owner of a Smart Car, that he’s named Percy.
“Everyone laughed at me and said I’d never do it, I’d get bored again. But I was absolutely determined I was going to show everyone.”
Christian joked: “There must be a God because I prayed every night that I wouldn’t get that same examiner who’d kept failing me, and I didn’t.”
Christian passed with just three minors, not bad, but then I suppose he’d had more practice than most.
“You might say I passed first time this time. It was so hard. There’s a lot more to it now then when I first started.
“There’s the independent driving tests, the theory tests, the hazard perception test.
“I’m so proud of myself. It’s changed my life to be honest. I felt like I’d achieved everything I really wanted to achieve, this was the one thing left I had to do.”
