 I am 28. I still dont have my license. I have taken the test 4 times in Independence I was even complimented on my driving yet I still i have not passed. (I have had my permit since I was 15.5. )

Has anyone else had problems with independence D M V? Is it just me? Any ideas to help me pass the driving test?

I just bought a new car (ford taurus) I pick it up tomarrow. I hope maybe taking the test in a car will help. !

Are you missing the same questions each time? Can you memorize the first five questions (the answers) you know something to give you a leg up?

Do you freak when you take the test.. (like sit there and tell yourself..Damn, I cannot remember anything/like blank brain?)  Why do YOU FEEL like you're failing it?

There's a number of things that may help.  But, for now tell me..I'm pretty sure it's not the DMV. :-(  But, there may be a good answer here.

TTY soon.

Well, I can't drive due to an eye condition and PTSD, but I've had plenty of problems with the Independence DMV--they're jerks, plain and simple. I can't get a new ID thanks to the patriot act CRAP. Because I had my name legally changed in 1987 through common usage instead of a court, I can't get a new ID until I pay hundreds of dollars and plead to a judge to have the paperwork created. It's effed up--I even have notarized paperwork. Independence treated me like dirt, so I went to Blue Springs and they did everything they could to try to help me, but MO is just screwed up.

As for the driving test--the written was a breeze, but I never took the driving test since the PTSD makes it impossible for me to pass it (as would having an ocular migraine and going blind and having to pull over for a half hour until it passed).

The written test I can pass. i have taken it almost 20x"s in the last 12 years. It is the actual driving test I cant pass. ( I even have flash cards made up for the written that coverrs both version a and b.) Trying blue springs may not be a bad Idea.

I took the test three times-one was totally not my fault though I was rear ended by an Indpendence police officer in the middle of the driving test.  It seems to me they are really hyper strict about every nuance of that test.  Do they tell you what parts you are having trouble with?

Holy crows! You were hit by a cop and they failed you? Um, did you stop really fast or something? (shouldn't matter) 'cause rear-ending is supposed to always be the fault of the person hitting from behind! (unless you're driving in 'weather' according to one stupid insurance company--long story, but it ended in my dh being accused of being at 20% fault because there was snow when the other person admitted she didn't try to slow down or avoid him... suffice it to say, we got a lawyer with our next accident).

Yeah, I remember my sister telling me that she lost points because she didn't turn on a red light--she 'hesitated' *rolls eyes* Good luck with the car!!

Actually yes-I couldn't complete the test because the car was totalled-bent the frame on it.  The policeman got out of his car screaming at me and telling me I was getting a ticket for obstruction of an officer going to an emergency-UNTIL he saw the Patrolman get out of the car and explain that I wasn't at fault in his opinion.  IT was a mess LOL and I was only 16!  I was on the verge of tears.
