....well my mums car

Obviously with the no dual pedals, will the instructor give me an easy teat route because he isn't able to intervene?

I won't be taking my test till next year. I've already done 32 hours and I won't be doing anymore till next year..

I find it easy to drive in both instructor and mums car!

Lol, I didnt even think that was possible, to do your test in your parents cars. I thought a special insurance was needed in order for you to be able to use the car.

You can sit your test in your own car as long as you're insured on that car.

Chances are it won't make any difference. I think from an examiners point of view, they feel that they shouldn't have to intervene with the pedals seeing as your instructor and hopefully you feel confident enough to drive on your own. On my driving test, the examiner didn't have his feet anywhere near the pedals, so probably couldn't have reacted in time even if he'd needed to.

I was fairly sure the route was randomly selected before the test (maybe even at the start of the day). I don't remember them asking me what car I was even driving before we stepped outside either.

Besides, you should be in a position to drive independently, so that's what you're there to do. You're just a piece of paper away from being able to drive just about any car by yourself, so dual controls should not really be needed.
