          I failed my test again. I'm still proud of myself for taking it, though!

            Aww, sorry to hear that. What did you fail on this time? Pick yourself up and keep going. You'll get it soon.
            I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience.
            ...
            Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?

            From a speech by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 at St. John's Church, Richmond, Virginia

              Thanks! I ran a red light at a four-way stop, and then when I turned left at the intersection, I drove into the right lane. She tried to give me some advice at the end of the test, but honestly, it all sounded like jibberish to me. I wasn't listening. She seemed like she wanted to snap at me a few times, but I think women at the DPS are usually like that.

                Some more things to work on. Both sound like anxiety or nerves. More practice will help. Best wishes.

                  I wasn't nervous when we started driving, but I was before we started driving. I take another test in a week, so I'll have more time to practice. Thanks!

                    Sorry to hear this. It does sound like your nerves. Keep practicing, you'll get this.

                        I am sorry you failed your driving test. But you were brave to re-take it. Good luck with future driving tests.

                          I failed, for the 3rd time! Haha! But... he gave me my permit and told me to practice more. I think it will be a good while before I take another test.
