He said: ‘I was only just leaving the centre to get out. We were literally just five seconds into it. I was approaching the junction to exit it and I had an absolute mind blank, questioning in my head: ‘What side of the road do we drive on’?‘I had a 50/50 chance, and I chose to exit it in the right lane.
Instant fail. Had I not been so stupid I’d have breezed through.’‘My examiner with 20 years experience, and my instructor with 30 years both said they have never witnessed anything like it in their careers. I hadn’t even left the test centre car park.’During the rest of the test, Craig had just two minor errors and would have passed.
He added: ‘I’ve avoided driving because when I was 17 I stalled at a roundabout which just completely put me off.But I was more confident now.‘I think it’s when you get older you get a bit wiser but that’s rich coming from me after failing like that. I’ve lived in the UK my whole life so there’s no excuse for not driving on the left.
Honestly, who fails a test quicker than that? I didn’t even get to the junction.’After sharing news of the disaster on social media, Craig has received dozens of messages of ‘support’ from pals.Melanie Donald said: ‘I can’t stop laughing. This is brilliant. Although I sometimes get mind blanks exactly the same. I just wing it and hope for the best. I’d have passed you.’
