    I have my third driving test im just over 2 weeks and I am beyond nervous already

    Failed my first test with 6 minors and 1 serious and my second with 3 minors and 1 serious. Waiting times in my area are 3-4 months and its rare to get cancellations, so my first test was in February and my second in May. I have been learning for a year.

    I rarely do things wrong in lessons/when out with my parents but I overthink things on the test and make silly mistakes.

    To top it off, I move to America for a year the beginning of November, so if I don't pass it will be over a year until I can do more lessons, by which time my theory will have run out.

    I feel like I have SO much pressure to pass this time that I literally feel physically sick all day every day thinking about it, I don't know how people keep doing tests upon tests they are awful.

    Does anyone have any tips to get rid of the nerves, and should I go in with a determined attitude or thinking I will fail? I am generally a confident driver and am driving with my mum everyday.

    Do it again and remind yourself that this is the last time your going to be taking this driving test as your theory will expire etc. I did that on my retake maths test and I passed.
