If you get the CD's and practice theres little chance of failing, go into the test unprepared then you will fail.
A mate has given me some CD's to practice with... they are the old style but oh well. I keep on getting 75% on the theory questions... which is alright I suppose
I bought a pair of trainers to drive in as I found when we did 2hr lessons focusing a lot on manoeuvres/clutch control, the lack of support in ballet pumps/flats made my feet hurt, but I do get that a lot from flat shoes anyway. The trainers do give slightly more grip which is good when learning although if you're really having trouble with the bite then perhaps try it in ballet flats to see if it makes any difference, personally it didn't. Now I've passed I'm starting to drive in other shoes which is weird! You can't really feel the clutch in Uggs and wearing heels felt weird at first but doesn't make that much difference now I'm used to the car, although I tend to take my heels off for flats if I'm doing a longer journey (40mins +).
I agree it does make it more difficult and a bit bumpier but I think once you get used to it it's fine. My friend cannot drive in them at all and has to keep flat pumps or Converse in the car for driving and changes when she gets in and out. My instructor would kill me if he knew I drove in heels sometimes, it was a huge bugbear of his!
phone them up and double check. Maybe they had to cancel your test for some reason and the cancellation letter hasn't come through.
ahhh im so annoyed. I had my mock test the other day in preperation for my second test next month, and i failed with one major and one minor.
How have other people faired in there mock test compared with their actual test.
my instructor always manages to fail people in their mocks - don't worry. Your obviously not doing the test tomorrow, the point of the mock is to identify areas to work on and focus on. 1 minor and 1 major is great.
Apparently my examiner is no longer available! They have over a week and a half to sort out a replacement! I have come to realise these people treat you like ****. But they can because it is a service that we all want and need so bad! If it was a competitive market of driving examiners/companies it would be a very different story.
They probably don't have any spare examiners in your area - look for cancellations.
Had my first driving lesson!! Went pretty well I thought, my instructor said I was learning quickly as well :P just wanna do it again now!
By the way from a standard stopped position, whats the procedure to start driving away, I keep getting mixed up whether its handbrake, mirrors, or brake which comes first etc lol
