    Hi there - I just failed my first driving test. I think it would be really helpful if we got a list of people's reasons for failing, and manage to compile a "list of mistakes to watch out for" for people who are about to take their test. I know it is a depressing thing to talk about but I would have found something like this really helpful

    My reason: Came up way too fast to a roundabout with limited visibility in a place I'd never been before. (Dangerous fault)

    Not being funny but there are 7000 replies in the thread at the top of this forum and the vast majority of them are from people explaining what had happened in their test.


    If you constantly think about the huge number of things you could potentially fail on you'll panic and will never pass. You're human, you're allowed to make mistakes.

    One of the reasons that i failed a couple of my tests was because i messed up on manouvres (paralell park and bay park).
    Another reason i failed once was for going around a tight bend too fast on a country lane.
    And of course there was nerves.
