    So tomorrow I have my test at 9am and I went out today in my instructors car. Prior to this I went in my boyfriends car over the weekend as my instructor was busy the weekend gone. I thought I drove pretty good in his car, he wasn't telling me what to do (that much) and let me drive in my style and I felt pretty confident. Today in my instructors car I thought I was confident and ready to go but some reason I was completely different. I was more nervous and more hesitant than I was this weekend. I don't know if it is because I have my test tomorrow or something else.. On my way to work after the driving lessons I was thinking about it and started to feel really really sick and wanted to vomit on the train. I don't want to feel like this when I do my driving test.

    Urgh, I just feel like I'm going to fail tomorrow because of what happened today :/

    Failed 10 days ago because I didn't give way to another car when there was a parked car on my side of the road... The guy ended up beeping and swearing at me... Apart from that 2 minors next test is Friday!

    Also... Did any of you have your driving instructor with you in the car when you did your test? I'm not sure on whether or not to have my instructor with me in the back seat. Worried it might add more pressure tomorrow or if it will help as I will have 2 opinions on my driving?

    What do you guys think/ did in your tests??

    I thought it was easier with hour him just a lot less pressure and as low not as your examiner isn't a douche it will be fine

    I had my instructor in the car with me when I passed. I found it calming Its also good as if you do fail, they will be there to give you support on what you need to improve for next time. Sometimes feedback from examiners isn't clear/you don't understand them so your instructor can tell you from their experience.

    try not to panic too much, if will only make you drive worse. Try to find a 'happy place' in your head to drive so you're comfortable and happy I was really nervous the day before and morning of my test which is normal!

    Good luck!! Let us know how you get on tomorrow :hugs:

    I passed!!

    I got 3 minors overall, one was for speed, I went 30 in a 60 because I didn't see the sign and there wasn't a national speed limit all along the road and my examiner said that if I had a car behind me it would be a straight fail but that didn't happen. And my other 2 minors were for positioning in the road which were really petty things.

    I think I was really lucky in getting the examiner I had and I thought I failed so many times!

    But yeah, so happy I passed first time

    Failed for the first time today. I was 5 minutes away from the test centre on my way back and was turning right into a side road on a dual carriageway. When the traffic lights changed I went to go, but people from the side road started coming out & turning right so I couldnt go, then I waited and held up traffic behind me 😭 So annoyed, I would have passed with 4 minors otherwise. I can't get another test until May either

    I failed mine last week as the examiner said I had breaked harshly at the pedestrian crossing. The car behind me could have hit me. I left wondering why didn't the car behind me leave a safe gap despite following a learners car. Anyway I think the examiners follow certain guidelines and can only pass a certain numbers every week/month. Does anyone agree/disagree??

    I failed once because of idiot drivers and I'm sure these tests deliberately fail people

    Yep I agree, I failed once for the silliest of reason. I am a perfect driver but this car decided to cut in front of me making me break harshly and the examiner failed me because of that
