BERLIN (Reuters) - A German man failed his driving test after attempting the examination while three times over the legal alcohol limit, police said Tuesday.
When the man arrived for the test Tuesday morning, both his driving instructor and the examiner detected the smell of alcohol on him, though the 27-year-old assured them he had not been drinking, police in the western town of Bendorf said.
"But his driving was rather bad, so the examiner directed him to toward the police station without him noticing," the spokesman said. "Once there, he had to get out and take an alcohol test, which revealed he was well over the limit."
The man will now have to wait "a long time" before he can take another driving test, the spokesman said.
