This leaves me no car to use, so I'll probably use my own and hope for the best. I know I can pass outright, but I don't want any bullshit. When I did my G2 test, the examiner (an old lady with sand in her vagina) said I don't check my blind spot "long enough." I was like, ok, am I supposed to check to see what colour lipstick the lady is wearing or if there is a car there?

Axxe rent a car! thats what i did.

I got my mom to rent me a car, (technically, I wasn't suppose to be driving it).

It was like $34.95/day for an new civic back then....(mom has a gold card that covers insurance, so that saves $20-$25 for the day.
My G test was cake.....did it a morningside n sheppard.

Only tick i got was for some asshole in the right lane when i was trying to merge, so i waited for him to pass then i merged, I had lots of room left before the lane ran out......the person said i should have speed up (ya right, then i get a tick for speeding). oh ya it was easy.....easier than my g2 i think, cus i was nervous for that one.

If i was getting my license for the first time, I would take a young drivers course or something equivalent just for the insurance savings. (if you plan on having your own car when you get your lic.)

Oh come on, you guys act like everyone's out to get you

"oh noes!! my car is teh lowered so i will fail for sure!!"

Unless it has a fartcan or something stupid just go and do it, they're not gonna fail you because you have a stiff suspension...

Bobby, we'll talk on MSN.. or call me. The price is around $50 more than what you're currently paying. Includes a car. Same thing for you Jim E. Works out to $250 which includes the testing fee ($75), lessons, and vehicle. There is nothing really illegal going on here, everything will be by the books... just, um... with the rules bent a little.

I don't know about a bylaw but they are picky about somethings. I went this summer. I took my 325is and I couldn't take the test because the passenger side seatbelt was warn out and wouldn't wind back by itself (like the spring wore out or something so if u pulled it all out u had to push it back in manually), It still fuctioned fine, like it would lock if u pulled it hard or braked hard (just didnt wind back with any force anymore) aaaanyway.. they call that unsafe, had to go back with it repaired. Also they check brake lights, signals reverse lights too, well at least here in windsor they do.

Actually come to think of it, when my sister went for her's like 3 years ago, her passenger side door handle broke the day before (literallly the day before), so she hadnt gotten it fixed, so she had to open the door from the inside. Anyway the chick said it was unsafe, and she had to reschedule.

Yeah, stock, and every bump the examiner will complain about their kidneys.

So? Thats not a fault of your driving.

Only reason I did not take my car is because the stick test is harder.

I'm not concerned about the stick part of it. I don't have any of the bad habits they tick off for (coasting, riding in 4th instead of 5th, etc)

I passed with driving standard, no problem.

Axxe, you want to do the test in a "non-souped up car" .. and what do you call your E30, lol.
