I did a few thousand miles in a Reliant three wheeler on my motor bike licence before I took my test
driving a Triumph in Shrewsbury.
Not much of a test, as soon as we started off a lorry shot across the road and I managed to avoid a collision.
We were both shaken up and he said we were lucky to be alive. When we did start off again he chatted to me
for the rest of the test, asked me one simple question about the highway code and that was the end of the test.
He said the way you avoided a serious collision showed me that you could drive.
Hope that never happened to any of you good people.

Drove through a set of traffic lights at five ways on red whilst taking my test, next time same examiner and he talked me through my test, what a great bloke.  Passed my test in 1963 after lessons with Hanger Motor company school of motoring, main thing I remember was the instructor chain smoking, bit off putting as I've never smoked.  Learnt in a 105e Anglia, sloping back window.
