    On my third test my leg was shaking so badly that the guy started looking at it. After I changed gear it was fine, but it was weird because I didn't feel nervous at all.
    I had exactly the same. He let me pull over for a minute and said it's weird how people's legs start to shake. (He gave me e minor later on for jumping a bit moving off due to leg skaking on the clutch :mad:)

    I guess it's just the amount of clutch work that you have to do, and the fact that you're not used to it. It seems to be only ever the left leg that gets it.

    on my first test i failed about 500m from the test centre, right at the end of the test. id only got two minors otherwise so i feel your pain! chin up chook i'm sure you'll be fine the next time. the 2nd time i was a lot calmer simply because id done it before and knew what to expect. good luck! xx

    I think I've already posted this somewhere, but a friend of mine failed in the first second for putting the car in gear, then realising the car wasn't on, took his foot off the clutch and started it up, lurching forward into a stalling fail. He passed 2nd time.

    Same here. I didn't feel nervous, but my legs obviously didn't believe that.
