    I did two tests... failed the first

    1. Bay park and turrn in the road
    2. Reverse around the courner and bay park

    No emergancy stops in either

    Parrell park is the most uncommon manouvre and bay park is the most common near me anyway

    My friend took hers yesterday and had to do emergancy stop.

    I did an emergency stop in both my tests!

    I know I did reversing round the corner both times too, but can't remember the others.

    I only did a Turn in the Road, and a Reverse bay park and yes it is 80% likely you will do an emergency stop.

    But it's all subjective, I failed my first driving test and on that one I did a Reverse around a Corner, and a Turn in the Road no emergency stop, but talking to friends they all see the emergency stop as standard and it's unlikely you won't get it.

    If you really want to be ready for your test, all maneouvres have to be practiced to the point of perfection, on the day there really is no room for error. That's why I didn't pass first time, one small mistake through poor observation, but I took it on board for my retest and it was alot smoother and I passed with 4 minors!

    Best of luck to you

    Passed first time with no minors

    Did a 3-point turn and a parallel park. On comming back to the test centre, did a bay park, but don't know if that counts as one as well?

    turn in road and reverse around a corner. A test center near me (not where i did my test) dosen't test the bay parking at all. Apparently they can't find anywhere to do it so many of my friends have never learnt to bay park, may be worth checking that your test center dosen't do the same.

    My test centre doesn't do bay parking, so I should soon be in the position of being able to drive with no bay parking skills!

    I had reverse around a corner and bay park. Bay park was in the driving school at the end of the test.

    I remember having an emergency stop, but the test was too long ago to remember what else

    Don't fret, on average emergency stops are asked to be performed on one-third of tests.
    I got parallel park and turn in the road. Reverse round a corner seems to be the least likely, although i do think this varies depending on the location of the test centre.

    The likelihood of you doing certain manoeuvres depends entirely on whether the opportunity comes up, i.e. whether there's a bay available, if a car is parked is the right place to parallel park behind it, and whether the roads are too busy to do an emergency stop.

    I haven't done my test yet, but I'm hoping to get my manoeuvres just right.

    First test : Parallel park and turn in the road.
    Second test : Parallel park and turn in the road.
    Third test : Parallel park and reverse around a corner.

    I never got the emergency stop in any of the tests but I had to do one on the dual carriageway in my third test because of this driver who pulled out infront of me from the other side of the road.

    And my friend hit the kerb, got 13 minors and passed first time, its a game of luck with driving tests and you know that.

    Another Examiner may have given him a serious, It's like hitting the kerb, some get punished, some get away with it.

    All in all, you don't want to be vulnerable when doing a manoeuvre as the examiner may look to mark you down for it, best not to leave it to luck and you will significantly improve your chance of passing.
