Passed Driving Theory Test

Back at the beginning of August I took the driving theory and hazard perception tests and never got around to posting about it. The test centre was on the other side of Stirling and I walked there after work. When I got there I waited in line at a desk to check in. After I checked in, I had to put everything except my license in a locker. Since the test centre was fairly busy, I had to wait again until I was called. I then went down a hallway and had my ID checked again. I was then assessed a computer and went into the test room. When I was finished, I went back to the waiting room and waited a minute or two to get my results. I passed both parts.

I got 48 out of 50 on the theory part. You needed 43 to pass. On the hazard perception part I only barely passed. You needed to get 44 out of 75 points to pass. I was getting in the mid 50s when practising. But I only got 46 on the actual test, including a zero on the one video.

The whole experience was interesting. I'm pretty sure I was the only person at the test centre between 20 and 65. The centre was being manned by two retirees. Everyone else looked 18. I thought about making an old timers joke to the one old guy working there but wasn't sure he would get it.
