    My driving test is tomorrow at 13.35! I've got a 40 minute warm up and 20 minutes to relax and get to know the car controls before doing the exam. I am getting very scared now. I was considering taking Kalms or something but then they might make me sleepy so a nice coffee and breakfast might do the trick. Ahhhh! Is 13.35 a good time to do? If anyone has their tests this week, good luck to you any advice and tips are welcome.

    Good luck.

    Now to read your post...
    My advice is to avoid crashing into anything

    Apparently smiling is good - like not acting all grumpy but smiling and having a chat with the examiner (maybe not whilst doing that 3 point turn, but you know what I mean )

    Don't panic about going the wrong way on the independent driving. You can't get faults for going off route so long as you do it safely, the worst thing you can do is dangerously change lanes to try and go the right way.

    Other than that, just get some sleep and don't panic. My test really wasn't as bad as I thought, it only occurred to me that it was the test when I was driving on it Good luck!

    I failed!

    I had 5 minors and 1 serious. A lorry went and cut into me on the dual carriagway but unfortunately I was speeding up when it happened and did not check the mirrors quick enough to slow down.

    Next test won't be until September! So I really hope there's going to be a cancellation. I was so, so close!
