    Anyone who can help .. I took my driving test around two months ago , I got very nervous and my leg began to twitch after that I told the test man that I couldn't do it so this meant that not only did I not even leave the test centre but I faild on control of the car from my leg shaking! I have my test on Thursday ... And I'm getting very nervous !

    My leg twitches like mad when I use the clutch, when doing certain maneuvers, however, I'm still in control of the car, it's just the positioning of my leg, hits a nerve behind my knee or something.

    Just breathe, do you feel confident? Or are the nerves taking over everything?

    Just totally forget about that test, or think of it as a mock test of some sort.

    I used kalms and rescue remedy. They just take the edge off the nerves. I also tried to pretend the examiner wasn't there, that actually helped, as I was totally focussed on my driving.

    There is something pretty tense about the driving test, but just try to remember it is no different in reality than being with your instructor. What about having your instructor in the car, googling relaxation exercises to help in advance or even getting advice from your GP.

    I took the kalms for a week before, but tbh, I found the rescue remedy better anyway
