It’s bad news for Jamie Laing, as the former Made in Chelsea star has failed his driving theory test… for the third time.
The 34-year-old has been trying his hardest to get out onto the road, but he’s been left red-faced once more, although, he was able to laugh about it.
Jamie joked that the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) is ‘playing hard to get’ and teasing him by failing him a third time.
Refusing to be shamed, however, Jamie shared his results with the whole of the internet.
On the hazard perception part of the test, Jamie actually just scraped through, scoring 44 out of 75, with 44 being the minimum needed. But hey, a pass is a pass!
But, he also revealed he’d scored 41 out of 50 on the multiple choice part of the test, when the pass mark was 43, and passes in both parts are needed.
So close, yet so far!
Despite his humiliation, Jamie continued to see the funny side of things, sharing some information on the law in Switzerland on Instagram as a joke.
The message read: ‘According to Swiss law, if you fail the practical driver’s license test three times, you are required to consult an official psychologist to assess the reasons for your previous failures before you are allowed to retake the exam!
‘Once the psychologist reports that you are once again ready to take the exam, you can retry.’
‘Why is the DVSA playing so hard to get…. Actually embarrassing now’, he wrote in his caption.
Fortunately, famous friends and fans were on hand to offer support and to console Jamie.
A member of the same club, Strictly Come Dancing pro Kai Widdrington commented: ‘Still haven’t passed mine either 🤣’.
Offering advice, one fan commented: ‘You need the theory test app, and then you need to take mock tests about 3 times a day… they have the same questions as the test.’
Full of sympathy, another added: ‘I’ve failed twice & I was too embarrassed to do it again. But some of the questions were crazy difficult, I asked experienced drivers in my family & they got them wrong as well!’
However, not everyone was as gentle, as one stunned follower laughed: ‘Jesus Jamie, we’ll have to figure out some way to help you cheat or something?’.
‘At this point I think it’s safer if you just stay off the road’, joked another.
Jamie previously said he booked a shocking 40 theory tests – but couldn’t be bothered to turn up for them.
He told The Heat Podcast: ‘I just don’t know. You get up in the morning and you think, “Am I really going to go all the way to Kingston to do my theory test?”.’
Maybe it can be fourth time lucky?
