    Do you feel ready to take your test?
    If your examiner said reverse around a left corner or takes you down a windy country road could you handle it?

    I think keep your test as it is for now, you can always cancel closer to the time if you're starting to see things you're not comfortable with..

    I haven't done many monouvers but my next lesson is 2hrs of manoeuvres hoping I can conquer them in that 2 hrs ... but apart from that I feel confident and I have like 12 hrs of lessons before my test date I'm sure I can get ready in that time

    You employ a professional and then ignore the professional's advice. Good idea! Your instructor is advising you to move your test. It may be that she is trying to extort more money out of you (unlikely) or she genuinely believes that you won't be ready to drive on your own and therefore you need more practice - this is what we are here for. I agree with my pupils when they are ready to drive independently and then they go for test. If we disagree, they can take my advice or go elsewhere. My standards are not up for debate.

    As for not being able to afford the extra lessons. If you can't afford the lessons you won't be able to afford to run a car...
