    Did two driving tests
    One for a motorbike, Passed first time
    One for a car also passed first time.

    Tip to pass your test, before you take the test, drive all the time as if you are doing your test, this will stop you developing bad habits which will trip you up as you will be thinking about not doing any of them and this reduces your concentration on driving during the test itself.

    I got mine back in the day when the Irish government were giving them out to clear the back log.
    No practical or theory test , just sign on the dotted line but Feck that wasn't easy though

    Then i buggered off to the mainland and my lovely employer paid for me to get an English licence including C1 , CE and C1E .
    Oh the back handers were all the rage back then

    So now i have my Irish licence and my English licence for Mr policeeeeee man. ..........no points on the licence . Ha

    Passed the theory test first time which was easy, think it's a bit harder now. Passed my driving test on the second attempt, of course first time wasn't my fault.
