Wear a very short skirt and low cut top, then hope you have a pervy driving test guy who will not focus on your driving so much.

Spray loads of deodorant on the morning before, I sweated so much my t-shirt stuck to the seat and the steering wheel got slippery...yeah, not nice haha. Don't drink loads beforehand - I was bursting for the last 10 minutes or so :P. But do stay hydrated, you focus better. Lastly don't let the nerves get to you, stay calm and you'll do fine .

awwh dont worry! i did mine only a few months ago and i got really nervous but it was fine!! i just pretended that i was doing my normal lesson and tried to make myself think that the examiner was just my instructor. CHILL!! it will go brilliantly just remember that your instructor would never have entered you for the test if you weren't ready! just go for it! you'll be so proud of yourself when it's all over!
GOOD LUCK

I focused on the test and don't worry about doing things wrong, before my test i went through the structure the test and my general driving methods, also carry on even if you think youve made a mistake

Is that to make you scrunch your eyes closed when you see a fat pedestrian crossing in front of you?

OP, if you can, talk to your instructor beforehand (mine picked me up from my house to drive me to the centre because I was using his car for the test, are you doing teh same?), and s/he'll tell you what you need to look out for, if there is anything. Hopefully there isn't anything you need to worry about, and good luck

It is one of the most horrible feelings! Its my re-test as well. I failed on the most silliest of mistakes last time. I just have a feeling I will get the Chief Examiner and he is known for being a meanie!! But, I'm thinking positively. I have two weeks to clear everything up. Might look into getting that Rescue Remedy. Anyone tried it on here?

never worry...the day before my test i had a lesson during which i mucked up my parallel park (like 5 times), couldnt do the reverse park AT ALL and hit the curb at least twice during my 3 point turn!! and i passed my test the next day!!! i wouldnt worry, especially as there are still a few weeks to go until your test! i am a horrific driver and managed to pass first time so i'm sure you'll be absolutely grand!! good luck
