    I have been driving about 7 months and am very capable of passing my driving test, my instructor and dad cannot fault me usually when driving, however I have failed 2 tests for the worst reasons, such as I started driving up the wrong side of a dual carriage way on my first test and drove through a red light on my second both of which I have never done before I think my failures are down to nerves. Could anybody offer any advice or suggestions so I dont fail my next test as it is costing me all of my earnings! thankyou

    lol, that could be a problem, if all else fails, point of to the instructor that there's a flying pig, they divert their eyes, and completely miss your majors :')

    I nearly failed my test with a red light, I just did an emergency stop infront of the lights basically lol.

    Nerves wise, depends, take your dad or instructor with you if you need, might relax you more. If your good at multitasking, talk, it relieves some of your nerves, makes it less tense in the car, since we're all human. If you want, take some water, ask the examiner if you can stop somewhere to have a quick drink to loosen the nerves. Take it slow, I'd rather be slow, get the minors for slowness than run a light or make a bad judgement.

    Just remind urself that its just like every other time uve been driving. If your usally good at driving you have no reason to be nervous.
    Taking a deep breath when your startin to feel the nerves comin on also helps.

    buy some tablets for helping nervousness, or ask the doctor for beta-blockers or whatever else they can prescribe. Make sure if you buy any it is non-drowsy though.
