    Did your instructor tell you that you're ready to pass now?

    In my opinion, it's best not to rush it. Get as much experience as you can between now and September, there's no point putting pressure on yourself and making it more difficult by rushing it.

    I'm in the same position as you as mine is also in September which is a long time. But I'd rather get more and more practice driving in different areas in case things do go absolutely wrong on the day!

    I did that. I knew the area kind of as my bf lives there. Took me 3 tries to pass my test and failed once because I was confused at some traffic lights and didn't know the area. If you can drive around a bit there first then do. I printed some old test routes out from online and had about 5 lessons in the new area and did the test routes and drove with my parents quite a lot. As long as you can drive you should be okay it was a massive change too from country lanes to massive motorway roundabouts and city style driving

    Please let me know how it goes

    By the way where do you live, it sounds like you can have access to different driving test centres? :confused:
