    Hello everyone

    Its me Anya! Im a newbie to this forum. I joined up as i wanted to ask some of you for advice and tips on practical driving test! Its all booked for next month which is coming round pretty quickly.
    Those of you who passed it first time, how did you achieve this? Obviously you done all mirror checks etc but what made it go smoothly as well as being nervous

    Thanks

    Erm, sounds cliche, but seriously, practice as much as you can where you'll be taking the test, at the time you'll be taking the test, as that'll give you the best preparation for it!

    Make sure you can do the manoeuvres really well, as they can also make or break it...! Getting there early without the rush is really key (I actually went for a car wash with my driving instructor before my test, as it helped relax me!).

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply. I have just ordered some rescue remedy after reading an older post on tips and advice.
    Its just what happens on the day, although I always hesitate at junctions for no reason and not progressing into the road when i should be. Im extra cautious when there is nothing there lol maybe I just need a good nights sleep so im on the ball 😂
    I've already been looking at cars (secondhand) or leasing monthly. Insurance isn't as bad as i thought.

    Thanks again
    Anya

    P.s will let you all know how I do.
