hmmm to chime in....my examiner told me during mine it is legal to take part of the other lane with proper signalling to avoid curbs and other obstacles.

especially in slow turns ...18 wheelers do it everyday

So if a curb-hit is an automatic fail and your buddy didn't know that he was to cross lanes, I think that was a fair test and a fair failure. I know that the Class-A written included information on "wide" turns..

I'd simply go back and not make the same mistake twice...

The re-test was with a more experienced, realistic examiner who didn't issue stern, cryptic instructions.

Just to be safe, Doctor R sat down with the guy and briefed the roundabout, applicable rules. The examiner grinned, and told him they'd just avoid that area entirely. And, he asked how the failure occurred in the first place. After hearing the explanation, he suggested returning to the spot to explore viable options.

The two took the bus to the traffic circle, and discussed ways to negotiate the route legally in varying traffic conditions. It turned out to be a positive experience, and tacitly acknowledged the core issue: that motorhome operators who opt for the Class B are a compliant minority interested in respecting the letter of the law.


Something for our archives: this location is a temporary setup. And, going to Hurst or Waco might still expose a candidate to arbitrary/capricious grading criteria. Nonetheless, it's probably worth the extra distance, for now.
