    Hi, new to this!

    Due to take my driving practical test, in a weeks time. I can properly drive, but not amazing at manoeuvers. Was wondering would I automatically fail if I did mess up on my manoeuvre, or is it classed as a minor. I'm really confident driving generally and do a great job I am just scared about the manoeuvres. Also sometimes stall, for stupid reasons like clutch control Or being in wrong gear!

    Thanks, all replies are appreciated

    Considered with

    "I'm really confident driving generally and do a great job... also I sometimes stall for bad clutch control and being in the wrong gear".

    (paraphrased the last one, but the meaning is the same you'll agree)

    These are contradictory sentences. Have you voiced these concerns with your driving instructor, or have they raised them with you?

    I'm surprised that they're entering you for a driving test when there are such basic mistakes being made.

    haha passed the driving test - got run into by a van from behind while waiting on a red light. Since it was near the end of the test, she'd already completed the maneuvers, and the collision was no fault of her own, there were no black marks to be put on her test and it was passed. With a written off car. But passed all the same.
