    Drivers must prepare driving test thoroughly with full concentration. During the driving test, reduce the nervousness and increase confidence level and pass the test.

    Sorry to butt in but....

    I did my test last Thursday and found it helped doing it in the middle of my exams as it made me not think about it. Then again I failed one and had another cancelled due to weather, as I was sat at the test centre. I was expecting this one to be cancelled due to the weather so wasn't holding out much hope and was expecting a march date or something. It wasn't until Thursday morning and it was like no frozen cars that it got to the point of 'oh crap I might actually be doing it this morning' all 3 of these tests were booked for 8:20

    But yeah, having it around exams made me not think about it, at the end of the day my a levels are more important than my driving test

    If you're not yet confident, rebook the test for a slightly later date and do as many lessons as you feel you need beforehand. My instructor said I was ready after I did 42 hours but I didn't feel ready until I'd done 50 hours. I did my test after 56 hours and I passed first time. I do not regret delaying my test by a couple of weeks as I didn't suffer any nerves on the day and I feel like it made such a difference.

    The show me tell me questions are very very simple if you just put aside an hour to learn all the answers. It's an easy way to impress your examiner, and a silly minor to get. Plus it's highly useful to know when you're driving your own car, so it would be in your best interests to learn them.

    I passed with 10 minors, 2 for gears (the examiner will make you pull up on the side and move off again several times during the test. My examiner spoke to me throughout those tasks and I forgot to change back to first gear when moving off, but I noticed my error straight away and fixed it), one for positioning (I entered a roundabout on the wrong lane and switched to the adjacent correct lane once I was on the roundabout) and the rest were for observation.

    Make sure your manoeuvres are perfect in your lessons as you will most likely mess up slightly on the day. Mounting the kerb is the easiest way to fail, and going back-and-forth to fix your manoeuvre won't impress your examiner.

    Most of all, BE CALM! And I wish you the very best of luck!
    Passed my test first time! I felt so superior and amazingly confident!
