I took my test in the family car. A 1974 Caprice Classic. I did alright but, I was wide on the parallel park and I was told I took all my right turns to wide. I'd like to see some of these kids these days try to parallel park a car that big. lol

1964 Mercury Comet with a 289. My older sisters car. Preferable to the two other cars in the family at the time which were a Ford Country Sedan Wagon and Chevy Sportvan.

I had a 1964 Comet Cyclone, best car I have ever owned, sure wish I could find it now, I would do a complete restoration on it.


I hear ya. That car was great. Before I could drive my oldest sister would often pick me and some of my friends up from school. They'd yell, "Smoke it" and she'd light the tires up.

At one point, it was stolen from the mall where she worked. It was recovered and all that had been taken were the tires and wheels...and the sun visors.

I too wish I could have that car back for a restoration.


Shopping. Sold 2005 31' Coachmen Freelander 3150SS, considering options.

1952 Ford Fairlane with a three-speed on the column and a pull-out overdrive. Took the test in 1959 or 60, so long ago I forget, but when it came time for the driving test the examiner, a friend of my dad's and practically everybody else in town, asked me if I drove up to the office, I said yes, he asked me if I had had any accidents on the way, I said no, he said, well you must have passed the driving test. Haven't had to take one since then, thankfully.

1962 Cadillac Sedan de Ville (family car) for the first test.

Had to re-test after a move to another state - 1978 Corvette. Could not see the front of the car and knocked over lots of orange cones but passed anyway. The examiner couldn't see them either.

1967 Chevy Impala 4 door with a 283 and the old 2 speed power glide transmission in 1976! My parents let me "have" the car - rusted out floor boards and all. Pop riveted in some old sheet aluminum and the think oil canned every time I went over a bump.

I took my driver's test in Knoxville, TN on my 16th birthday, in my mom's 1972(?) Pontiac Grand Prix 454, 4 barrel carb. automatic. I only had to drive around a 2 block area, and I was done - amazing! I was so worried about parallel parking that thing, and I didn't even have to do it!

My mom made my dad put a bag of QuickCrete in the trunk of that car to keep it from peeling out of parking lots and away from stop signs - that car could flat out MOVE! My dad modified it with air shocks, and we actually pulled a two horse trailer with it - dumb I know, but we didn't know better back then...

DH took his driver's test, in Sarasota, FL, in his sister's 1970 Ford Pinto automatic. He took it in that car, rather than his family's car, a 1965 Comet Cyclone 289 automatic, to make parallel parking easier.

DH made a 94 on his test. I don't have a clue what I made on my test - I didn't care, as long as I passed.

'54 grunge green 3/4 ton Ford pickup with a granny 4 speed manual tranny. The four year old truck was a ranch truck that never saw but 1000 miles of paved road in its 25 year life. Had to drive 78 miles to the closest DL test center.
The tester saw where I lived and ask who drove me here. I told him I did. He shook his head and had me drive forward and back up and asked me what the hand signal were. Checked the trucks lights/tag/registration and issued my class D license.


These days driving yourself to a driving test appointment means you don't get to take the test that day. I believe you have to find someone to pick you up as you can't drive the car away unless you want a ticket for no driver's license.

My daughter will be driving herself. She has a learner's permit. She just has to have me or her mom in the passenger's seat. Similar details may have been ommitted from some of these posts, however, I would not be surprised if some of these posters didn't solo to the testing site and get away with it.
