    are you doing your test in watford? i did mine in pinner. don't worry about it, just stay focused.

    the saftey questions though can be quite specific, like knowing how to check oil levels (if you don't know, just ask your instructor to show you before the test). also, they can ask how you check the horn/headlights/indicators are working, but that's pretty simple - you just say you'd turn them on (hazard lights to check indicators) and look. if you want to be extra cool, you'd say that you look out for traffic when opening the door to get out and check them.

    I was about to say that if its Watford or St Albans you going to have to be good to pass.
    Wood Green in North London has the worst fail rate whilst down the road in Winchmore Hill has the best!

    I took my test 4 years ago when we never had to answer all those quesions prior to getting into a car. In fact, it should have been brought into existence ages ago.

    Yeah it was absoultely fine, although i had to go right out of the test centre, up the horrible road with double parked cars, a petrol station, and then had to turn right onto the highstreet, which is a complete *****! But it was all fine so wooo!

    I wanna book my test in Pinner. My insturcotr says it is the easiest one, whereas watford is the hardest. Anyone here describe to me the sort of roads pinner has (i live in stanmore but tend not to go anywher near pinner). Are there lots of junctions? or just easy, quiet roads with minimal congestion??

    Thanks

    Just book your test wherever you've been learning.
