    Just over 2 weeks ago I completed my class 1 driver training. The full course in Winnipeg. MPI failed me twice, once for trying to complete a left hand turn while in the intersection and the second time for not completing the exact same turn. No excuses, just mentioning the reasons for 2 failures.
    I would still like to get my license but I need some help with the third try.
    I would like to know if there is a company out there that would be willing to help in exchange for work for them when its completed.

    Thank you

    Go back to the driving school you used and pay for a couple more driving lessons , that’s what i did and never give up took me 4 or 5 times to pass the road test .It was always something stupid why i failed like almost passing but i screwed up the backing into a spot test and having my front wheel hitting the curb /side walk in front . Don’t give up i had to do a refresher course at cross roads in barrie because schneider and all the other big companies didn’t recognize the school i used . i couldn’t get hired any where so I sucked it up paid another 3500 for a new course of schneider choice and got hire now 14 years later is a distant memory

    I remember them messing with me like that too. The truth is no one is ready to drive straight out of lousy driving school, there's not enough time behind the wheels to do everything proper and stress of an examiner on top. Eventually they pass you cause they have to, so long you don't kill anybody. Just keep at it. I went back to my driving school and insisted on more hours. I told them the training was bullshti and I needed more time, so they gave it to me, and I passed. You just gotta beat it out of them, don't pay more, just go in there with a stiff upper lip and speak truth to face. They know you're not ready, but they'll try to string you in for more $$$ .. the schools are a mess, and many in cahoots with examiners, it's a racket
