    Funny thing is.. like on my first test if you just tell yourself not to panic you'll be okay.

    i couldn't start the engine of the car on my test and i thought i was going to fail on that. then my left leg started to tremble and i stalled it. i almost rolled backwards :eek: and had to keep pulling forwards on the reverse round the corner because the examiner chose a reeeeeeeally busy corner.

    but i still passed!!

    (and the next week my best friend passed with the same examiner...vvvv good luck to have her )

    you don't need special checks you just need an extra mirror like the one on instructors cars so the examiner can check your blind spot (i think)

    Good luck, just relax and you'l be fine!
    So did I, it's not as uncommon as you might think.

    Yea you can take any car you want on the test.. as long as it has seat belts, head restraints, a mirror for the examiner and L-plates.

    Oh yea does anyone know if you can get a diagram like in the handbook of whats inside the bonnet of a Micra? Because it's NOTHING like my instructor's car.. no colour-coordinated signs and stuff! argh what AM i going to do! :P
