How many times did it take you to get your driver's license?

It only took my once for my G license (to drive a car here in Canada) and once for my motorcycle license. I am wondering if others took more times than that?? I wonder who has the record for the most amount of test trying???

I never got to take mine but I know for some people that I know, it was more than twice, like one of my cousins, and one of my friends went to the DMV 3 times.

Sorry to hear that ShellyB. But I guess your friend was a third time is the charm.

I think so, it did not help much that she was getting more and more nervous but she made it

Hi sketcherd.. It only took me once to get my A driver license here in Paraguay.. I only have that licence and is for drive all kinds of vehicles except motorcycles.. I've heard that in other cities is more difficult to get A class driver licence, but It took me only one time, one test to get my driver license..

Good job Anchopy. Now you should try for the motorcycle and see if you can make it 3 out of 3....LOL

I took my drivers test in Driver's Ed. I passed it with the best score in the class (even though I am TERRIBLE at driving!) and they gave me a waiver that I could take up to the DMV when I had my permit for a year, and "cash in" for a license. And because I had the waiver, I did not have to pay anything, either!

Good for you!! Nice you didn't have to pay for it as well. Funny most people think they are great drivers. Most don't admit to being a poor or terrible driver. At least you know why perhaps you are getting honked at on the road. LOL

I got my motorcycle and car both only in one test. The test is not easy though. Maybe because I used to drove and rode long before I got any license.

Wow good for you. I got my licenses totally separately. But still it was just one test each.

I had to take my driving test three times and the two times I did fail I failed on exactly the same thing in both...how frustrating. Did eventually pass though and absolutely love driving now. Love the feeling of freedom I get when i'm driving around, good rock song playing loud, weathers nice with windows open...takes bit of beating.

In my country we have this corrupt officials even if you know how to drive you'l never get it right first time, you will fail all the lessons until you pock out money to bribe them.It took me 6 months just to get my driver's licence even though i knew how to drive before i could apply for my licence but because of this system of corruption i had to take more months doing nothing, and obviously because i refused to pay that money so my application kept on being rejected until i realised that i have no choice but to pay this as*h*l*s what the wanted

OMG that is awful. I live in Canada and that doesn't happen here that I know of anyway. I was 16 when I first got my drivers license and let's say much older when I got my motorcyle lisence.
