I passed the test on my first try! The whole thing was so simple. After waiting for three hours at the DMV, the instructor told me to start the car and turn on the emergency lights, then make the left and right signal. We then reversed and I did not have the emergency brake all the way down
so the car started beeping and I asked him what was wrong. We went around the parking lot of the DMV before getting to the roads.
After pulling out of the DMV parking lot, I had to make a right turn to the main road, and I immediately went for the middle lane (it had three lanes) because I wanted to be on the safe side. I slowed down after he told me that I could not do that - he said "If you're going from lane 1, you must go to lane 1" - so I should have turned to the most right hand side of the road. At that point, a car honked me from behind. I thought, "Oh no, not another mistake!"
We passed only one traffic light and went around a two-lane street for less than a minute before we reached the DMV again. I parked and he left the car. When I followed him, I asked him if I passed the test. He said nothing and I did not know if that was a good or bad sign. His only response was to wait for my name to be called. I waited for ten minutes and was finally called. Then, I asked the clerk if I passed the test. She was surprised the instructor did not tell me if I passed or not, but upon looking at the documents, she said that I passed
I fist pumped Ana Ivanovic style to my friend who was waiting in his chair for over three hours.
In sum, I cannot believe that I passed the test. It lasted like five minutes and it was so easy!
