When I took my test in '62, we had a '54 Olds 98 and a '62 Olds F-85 station wagon. I did all my practicing in the '54 Olds, including parallel parking. On the day of the test, we decided that I should take the F-85 Station Wagon since it was shorter and would make the parking part of the test easier. I aced the driving part, but when I started the parking part, it struck me that the corner post of the roof that I had been using to line up the point when I started to move the front end to the curb, was in a different place! A moment of panic, but I did a perfect job. It was just dumb luck, but I made it.


Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.

I used my sister's 1957 Ford Fairlane, 4 door sedan. That was in 1966, the car did not have power steering and it had one of those "bus" steering wheels with the knob attached to it. We did not have a parking section on the driving test and the actual driving part consisted of four left turns. I guess they were preparing us for the NASCAR circuit

1979 Chevy LUV......

Practiced for hours so I wouldn't stall it.......It was a 4sp.

When I took my test I was so smooth. Never killed the engine, never bucked the clutch, never over reved the engine. Even took off on a hill.

After my test, the examiner told me it would take time for me to get the hang of driving a manual.


The second time I had to take a driving test to get my license was also a 1979........Except it was a Mack R model with 18 wheels, and a few more gears......... Once again, got undue criticism from the examiner.

I thought about asking that guy if his job was to examine, or teach?
