    Haha, either one. Internet ettiquite dictates that if you copy someone's work, you link and give name credit. I changed the original to have it in there.

    at least i didnt take credit for it, i did say that a friend spent time writting it up and all i did was chage a few of the local things (like how to get to the testing station and stuff) but duly noted for next time. i will give better credit where credit is due

    It's cool man I'm not mad or anything; I was just one of the staff members of the University Writing Center in college and had to spend all day correcting plagarism, so it's a bit of a pet peeve of mine.

    Did they tell you what you fucked up on? When are you planning on going again? Man it might be worth it to take a day of nenkyuu to do the driving school... at least then you have a way better chance at passing next time, ya kno?

    heres what i did:



    he said i was driving down the wrong side of the road because i opted to smoothly enter the left lane which happened to curve in the exact direction i was starting from...i apparently should have cut 90* across two lanes of traffic and then nearly 90*'ed it again once i got into the left lane

    thing was you only have a little curb between the car and the road from where you start, so when you pull up to where you pull out, your car is naturally facing 45* to the northeast (assuming north is the up direction on your computer screen) so since the road you are going into also is seen straight ahead of you in that position since the road also curves up at a 45* angle, it makes the most sense to just smoothly go straight into the curve almost like a tangential about to meet up with a circle if that makes sense

    but apparently no it wouldve been better to angle the car out even more and then angle to a due north direction and then angle it 90* again to a nearly due east direction

    how long was i actually in the right lane as i crossed over into the left? bout 2 or 3 seconds.

    You have to remember that you cannot pass doing what "makes the most sense" or is "smart." You have to follow all the dumb rules even if it means driving completely opposite to what a normal person would do.

    I had some woman who was on her fifth fail tell me that I "don't have to" do things like check under the car before I get in. Hmm wonder why I passed and she didn't then...

    Yeah... although I was literally centimeters from failing.

    When you have to pull in at the end and park I cut it REALLY REALLY close to the curb and ended up maybe 3 cm away.

    The guy even told me to get out and look at the tires and was like "giri giri dayo!!!!"

    From what I have seen it depends on the dude testing you. You could do everything right, but if they want to fail you, then they will. If you fail the first time each subsequent try is like 3600yen or something. I met a guy who failed 7 times.

    In the more inaka license centers you are given a map and you have to copy the course down. Then you have some time to walk around the course before you take the test. Yeah, it's not the most fun thing to do (especially in July or August) but you really should, because you have to do the whole thing from memory.

    they had a map for me too, but the instructor/test giver guy would also say the directions in japanese when i was driving the course so it was easier than i thought.

    I'm testing next week Thursday (and Friday and Monday and Tuesday if need be). We'll see how your advice stands up, young Trivial.

    Remember: this is for Samezu, other places may differ.

    And from what I've seen Samezu is one of the easier ones -- all four of us islanders passed on our first try. We also studied our balls off though, so maybe that had something to do with it.

    True. True. I've been sapping information from local sources as well. Here's a decent guide for the Fukuoka test center: “Passing The Driver’s Test”, or “I Am So Cool!”
