    Hi, I have my test on Wednesday and don't have a lesson til Tuesday then one before the test on Wednesday. I had a mock test today with my instructor and got 2 serious faults - so failed. I hit the curb when reversing around the corner and left it too late to change lanes and caused a car to slow down.

    Do you have any tests for the day. I am trying not to be nervous but dont feel very confident...

    I would say just relax. seriously.

    On my last lesson before my test, not counting the hour before the test I did really bad on my manovers, driving etc, hitting the kerb a few times, just absoltely messing up my manovers, just driving all overr the place. Same goes before my lesson before my exam was just absolutely wroried.

    however, I thought within 10 minutes I've failed because I touched the kerb, but I didn't mount it therefore I passed, but I didn't realised that and thought I failed and basically didn't care and was trying not to make it any worse, but I've passed with 6 minors.

    um. I hope this is helpful...:o:

    I never actually passed a mock test and then passed my real test first time with only two minors.
    So the advice I would give is check your mirrors as obsessively as you have been taught, and just be super alert to everything going on around you.
    Hope you pass!

    :O I also have a test on Wednesday and just had a mock and haven't got another lesson till Monday. I failed my mock on 6 minors, 1 and a half majors (pulling up at an inappropriate place (bus stop) and not quite following the line of a roundabout, which he gave me a minor for initially but said should maybe be a major).

    TBH I think it's just the luck on the day, whether you happen to get nervous and get it a bit wrong, or whether you get some tricky situations. Good luck!

    That sucks

    My driving teacher would scream at me if I was going too slow, I think she'll kill me if I fail for going too slow. Why were you only doing 40?

    Yeah, that sucks, I know! One of my friends failed for doing 26 in a 30 :confused: Very weird!

    It just felt right on that particular road. In my lesson the other day we hit 50 on that road but it kind of felt wrong! It's a bendy country road. There were definitely stretches I should have hit 50 on but on parts of it, any more than 40 and I would be in the next field!
