Driving Licence - Cleared 4 Wheeler DL test in first attempt

Reported on August 23, 2010 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #33311

I'd like to Salute all the honest officials in the various government departments. One of whom I met personally was - JP Gangadhar IMV - RTO West Bangalore

I was holding a LL for 2 wheeler and 4 wheeler for over 3 years with constant renewal. Appearing for the driving test for DL two-wheeler driving I was failed twice for silly reasons by other inspectors in the RTO-West (Rajajinagar) most probably because i did not appear through any agent or driving school. Finally in my third attempt 3 months after the 2nd failure i passed (though there was no change in my performance from earlier attempts).

In 2000 when I was to appear for 4 wheeler DL test (again on my own and not through diriving school) I was a bit jittery and also expected at least 3 attempts to clear the test. The inspector, Mr. Gangadhar, put me at ease and I drove and maneuvered as asked to do. I was delighted to find later that I'd passed the test.
Now 10 Years later I still hold the DL card with his name printed on the back. I've never had a any major challans (except for couple of traffic signal jumps) from cops and have always been a responsible driver (both with 2 and 4 wheeler). I do hope that more such officers populate the various govt. departments who take pride in their work and uphold the integrity demanded of the position they're in.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
