    Damn that stall was unlucky Seems like that really messed you up


    Awww no Did you just feel really nervous after failing the first time?
    I was like that too but calmed down when I got into the car. The third time my instructor told me to try and enjoy it, which does you give a more positive mindset
    Aww thanks and no not particularly and I'm not that bothered about passing it's weird D:

    Try getting into the mindset where you want to pass and know you can pass so you kind of boost yourself

    Sorry to hear that Do you keep getting the same major? or is it different things each time?

    Only just recently seen this thread and I was wondering from the perspective of somebody who has failed their test, do you think that the examiner out to fail you?

    I've got my second test next Friday, haven't driven since my first one... wasn't really planning on any more lessons, but my driving instructor seems to want me to do another one. Not sure what to do.

    Definitely have another one! Ive failed four times now and my biggest piece of advice would be to have more lessons in between each test. I was silly and only had one in between each of my last 3 tests! Have learnt now though and am having a month of lessons before my 5th! Good luck to you i hope you get it next time!

    The first time it was for hitting the kerb on my reverse around a corner, second was not signalling coming off a roundabout, third was getting too close to a cyclist and fourth staying to the lefy whilst turning right on a one way street! Its always something silly that lets me down, when im in my lessons i dont do any of these things!

    I would have one. I never had any between my first and second test, failed my first one on something stupid and didn't feel anymore lessons would help. But I took another lesson between my second and third tests and definitely found it helped. I had it the day before my test and found that I got most of the nerves and anxiety, that I'd built up, out of my system on that lesson allowing me to have what felt like an easier test.
    So I'd say have just one more lesson as close to your test as you can, you might not feel like it'll do anything but if your instructor thinks it's best then it probably is

    Just booked my second test for 10th February! Came home from school jumped straight on the computer looking for cancellations and there it was! Delighted

    Quite excited as I know I can do it, just one silly mistake that let me down last time. Hoping I don't get so nervous this time and this excitement helps me get through it!

    I'm so glad you feel like that because I did on my second attempt and passed because I knew what I did wrong last time and i knew I was more than capable of nailing it. Good luck!!!

    Good luck for your next test, hope it goes well for you... its really disheartening when you fail your first for something so stupid let us know how you get off
    Thanks im confident I'll pass next time as I change the test centre and no what to expect now. You are right it is very frustrating and disheartening, but you just have to take it positively and stay strong and not give up. I'll definitely be letting you know whether I pass or fail by wednesday. Fingers crossed.

    Good luck to you if you have your exam.
