    I know it's probably a given, but just stay calm and be confident in yourself. If you're ready then it'll all come naturally and you'll nail it.

    Ignore that the examiner is there and do your thing, you'll often find they will sit there in silence anyway, with the occasional instruction.

    you wont completely get over your nerves but try your hardest to contain them, use your mirrors lots, especially door mirrors before and during turns, dont be too hesitant, if there is a safe opportunity to go then go but always think safety, e.g. dont get too close to parked cars or other road users, remember less space equals less speed , good luck

    Just remember that failing is a costly business in both time and money. If you want to drive a car legally then you need a license. A driving license is pretty essential these days unless your a hedgehog or somethin. Just remember that whatever happens, ffs DO NOT FAIL! All your time and money spent learning and practicing, its all down to this moment and its so easy to blow it on a daft mistake. Just remember if you fail, your ****ed!

    EDIT: God dam it hes failed. Didnt read the thread before posting.

    I past first time yesterday, with only 3 faults! My advice would be to drive slowly but not too slow and to look into mirrors as many times as possible!

    Keep calm and be in full control of your car at all times. Be vigilant of other road users and show them consideration. Keep checking your mirror and pretend that the examiner is not there but only for the purpose of giving you instructions.

    Good luck Keep calm and cool.
