DVLA1 April 2001
We regret to inform you that your driving license has been cancelled.
Your driving examiner had been struck off our register and all passes between June and September 2000 have to be retaken.
A new test appointment has been made for Friday 4 May 2001 at 10:40am at the Wakefield Test Centre and you will not be charged for this test.
YOU MUST NOT DRIVE AGAIN UNTIL YOU HAVE PASSED THIS TEST.

Senior Administrative Officer
Telephone call between me and my Dad
Me (in tears): Oh my God I need to take my driving test* again, oh no, oh no, oh no
Dad: Your Mum isn't here, have you read the letter?
Me: Yes it says I have to take my driving test again.
Dad: Who is the letter from?
Dad: No who has written the letter?
Me: J King
Me: Josephine King
Dad: And her initials?
Me: J.O. King
Me: I don't know what you mean?
Dad: What is the date of the letter?
Me**: 1st April
Dad: What April Fool's Day?
Me (yelling): WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dad: Not my fault, not my fault, it was your Mum's*** idea, I told her not to do it.
*I'm a good driver however I'm bad at tests. I passed my driving test on the sixth attempt - reversing was also quite a problem. When I passed my test I was on beta blockers to try and stay calm so the thought of having to retake the test yet again was soul destroying.
** Ok yes it took me quite a long time to work it out.
*** She is of the don't take yourself too seriously club, if you can't laugh at yourself no one will laugh with you. I did eventually forgive her.
Have you ever been caught out by an April Fool?
