    Always look for pedestrian crossings with people waiting. I have my test tommorow and went over two when I shouldn't have done in my last lesson today.
    Oh when's your test? Good luck would be nice if we both passed

    Mines at 1:35 at the Farnborough centre . I've just been out with my dad doing an old test route (no independent driving) and it all went well, so its just down to the test now. I also saw a really good piece of advice on an old forum post here when I was searching for advice. Treat your test like you are a chauffeur, driving smoothly and carefully like you want to keep your passenger as comfortable as possible, that way you don't think of it like a test however still driver well and don't relax to much.


    Gd luck for tommorow, it would be awesome if we both passed.


    EDIT: Oh and good luck to Special Offer also.

    I passed (7 minors, 3 for observation at junctions where she said that I couldn't have possibly seen down the road, when I know fully well I could and did.)


    I'm guessing you will get getting in pretty soon, the tension

    I failed again Got taken on a really busy route with a massive dual carriageway and a huge roundabout that even my dad gets scared by. Instructor gave me really unclear and confusing instructions about 2 roads that both had the same name but went in different directions. So annoyed, if it wasn't for that I would have passed with only 5 minors!

    I had my first driving test two weeks ago, I took Rescue Remedy before it and had an hour with my instructor before, it helped me relax and get used to the car. I failed - 4 minors and 1 major, my major was for lane discipline (boo) but I have my next one next Wednesday after hunting for 6 hours for a cancellation. You could say I'm VERY nervous as the first one really knocked my confidence. I'm gonna give it my best shot, that's the only advice that could help! Just go into it thinking that the examiner is taking over as your instructor is ill today you will be fine! Good luck!
