    PASSED 2 minors 1 for hesitation and 1 for speed (not going fast enough) had a 3 point turn. Cant believe ive done it! Not nearly as hard as the mock tests. The examiner literally didnt speak a word to me other thab directing me, i thought that would make it worse but i was so busy focusing on what i was doing i didnt really care!

    Good luck for your test hope you do just a good
    Well done!! I hope I'll be able to say the same on Thursday

    Thanks! I was feeling pretty relaxed before I got in the car, but the second I started driving, I just went to pieces haha! I think the combination of knowing it was a test and having someone totally unfamiliar in the car with me just made me panic a bit.

    I thought I'd failed right at the start, because I pulled over on some double yellow lines by accident and my examiner was shaking his head. Then about a minute later I took the wrong exit at a roundabout! After that I relaxed though as I really thought I'd failed by then, but it turned out I'd passed! I was so surprised! Well done for staying calm and getting through it

    There was a few times i thought id failed too, for some reason as i was coming up to red lights i kept taking it out of gear and just rolling thought after doing that a few times he would have noticed and failed me on it but i didnt even get so much as a minor for it. What were your minors for?

    One of them was for accidentally pulling over on double yellow lines (my examiner asked me to pull over on the left, and I was so nervous that I just went for the first space I saw, which I was kicking myself for afterwards!). I also got 2 for moving off 'safety' and 'control' on the report sheet. I think they were because when I was doing my hill start, a vehicle behind was approaching slowly, so I thought they were letting me go (I was signalling right to move off), but after I'd checked and started to move off, I noticed they had started to try and go round me. That put me off a bit, so moving off was a little juddery

    A lot! I don't know the exact number, but I had roughly 2 hours of lessons per week from October 2015 to August 2016
