I've never taken the test in Switzerland but in the UK any mistake which effects other motorists is classed as a 'major' which is a instant fail.

Indicating is definitely a major

Had doctors appointment at 7.45am. I arrived at 7.43am. I was back in the lift at 7.47am after seeing the doctor and had my regular medication in my hand! I was told next time I just have to ring for the medication. Absolutely amazing. TIS

Okay cool, but my driving instructor told me that it wasn't enough to fail you. It is basically the only that I made. I agree it is a major but doesn't make me fail? if its the only one besides taking the wrong direction (language barrier) which anyways is not a mistake. If you all gonna say that I deserve to fail the test for forgetting the indicator once and that is normal, then please pay attention when you drive and see how many times do you forget to indicate per day.

I can forget to indicate as much as I want. I've got my license ;)

Saying that people who 'forget' to indicate are one of my biggest pet peeves and if you aren't indicating in your driving test then you're only going to get worse. So you definitely deserve to fail.

Okay so it was enough to fail me, right?

Who said I wasn't indicating? I was all the time except ONCE which is definitely not enough even after the test the driving instructor appealed and Strassenverkeresamt agreed it wasn't enough but I cant pass after the decision was made. So next time my teacher will be in the test with us and if it was right to fail me in the first time then they would not have accepted this request.

This is my last comment about this cuz you have made it a long argument and its not worth it. In the end of the day if your opinion is that it is enough reason to fail someone while there are a whole lot of driving rules which were followed perfectly by me then your opinion won't make this decision less TIS.

Thanks for your opinion anyways

A few years ago I was at the Lutry Wine Harvest Festival, lot's of celebrating including lots of wine drinking. I saw a group of youngsters (late teens) very drunk and drinking wine from bottles, one lad finished his bottle and was about to throw the bottle in the garbage.

But he sobered up for one second, held the bottle up to the light to check the colour before throwing it in the correct recycling bin. TIS
