Ellena passes her car test
Well done to Ellena who passed her driving test today. Ellena only turned 17 in April so this is even better good news as she managed to do it in such a short space of time.
Ellena took her theory test the Saturday after her birthday and then, as she passed that FIRST TIME, she was able to book a driving test. The test was for a long way in the future due to the overwhelming backlog of learner drivers wanting a driving test after lockdown. However, we were able to find her a cancellation and so in to test she went.
The examiner started with the show tell questions and then off they went. Currently, if a candidate does something that warrants a serious fault, they return to the test centre early. Ellena was out for the full amount of time and then to end the test, she was asked to reverse into a car parking space at the test centre. She did this with ease and the examiner got out to check the final position. He didn't need to though as she was in the lines really well.
A discussion after the test highlighted one area in which she needs to practice but he was able to hand over a test pass certificate. Off home now to change her insurance to a full licence holder and she will be out in her blue beetle later this afternoon!
Well done Ellena. Enjoy your new licence.
