Haha, oh dear silly me, thought you were on about an instructor's! Yea you just press and release then press again for non ABS (thats what ABS does automatically anyway). For ABS you just slam it down (or "Press firmly".......)

Just saw http://www.dsa.gov.uk/PressRelease.asp?id=4100 would imagine it depends really then. Probably about 8 though so you might well be first! Don't know if that's good or bad!!

What's the exact time of yours? I would guess anything before 9am (or should I say 9:04 or something random!) and you would be for that examiner, each test would have to allow about 50-60mins wouldn't they so they would surely only fit 1 in?
Mine's at 8:40! And they're about 40 minutes. Luckily it means there'll be traffic so I won't have to do too much. It can only be 40 mins so if you run out of time to go anywhere else, then lucky you!

You booked a date?

Can't see them taking one out at 8 as that would be pushing it. Would guess that examiner starts work at 8:30 then? Good luck anyway!

No not yet, dont know what to do about it

That's good news! Yea it's 8 weeks here (defined as when they have 10% choice available), but you should easily get one in 4/5 if you're flexible

Just booked yet ANOTHER theory for Tuesday! Better pass this time! If only my laptop worked could have taken that and had a go at Hazard in the waiting area!!! :p:

Still if I don't pass this time it'll be a few weeks til I can take it again I guess, as the 3 working days rule over xmas will be messed up! I just don't know what the best way is. If I was failing by miles then obviously take time to learn it all, but I failed by 5 when getting disqualified and 2 without, so think it's just going to be 50/50 whether I do or not every time until I eventually pass! I can still put it back as long as I do it before Saturday, but don’t know if I will or not.

Shame really, I do so well on the mocks, would love to go into it thinking oh great I have a good chance, but after Tuesday there’s no chance of that as I thought I would have done enough to pass, and I’m quite harsh when judging myself!!. Hoping I get a few of the same clips now though haha. If I don't I'll keep failing then I'll know the whole set inside out! :p: :banghead:

Yea that's probably the best way! No pressure from friends then!

Few weeks solid practice will be good! Hope you pass!

Yea that's probably true. Thanks

My mate was saying the same thing yesterday. She was saying don't treat it like a test so much by doing the hazard DVD loads. Even though I'm not exactly worried about passing it (as I'll just keep doing it until I do even though it's so expensive!) the determination I have to pass and the embarrassment of having to go back to that place so many times is making it harder for myself and is just as bad as worrying. Not that easy in practice though!

Tuesday is was my original date anyway, just a few hours later as that's not available (yet!), so hopefully I just pass then before Christmas, as I first planned!!

Grrrrr. Probably going to cancel the lesson tomorrow . Probably the theory Tuesday too. I landed on my arm/shoulder yesterday and hoped it would get at least a bit better overnight so I could try and drive tomorrow but doesn't seem like it! Had another load of painkillers but I don't think they are going to work, and have to cancel it 24 hours in advance so can't wait and see . Was supposed to be having practice today too . I doubt it's going to be good enough for a lesson on Monday/Tuesday either so looks like I won't have had a lesson from 15th to 29th!

Good luck AwesomelyPsycho!

Well you won't see this before your test so hope it went well for you!!!

Oh thats a real shame, i would cancell if you arent feeling 100% and if your on lots of painkillers your concentration may not be good for the theory. Bad timing hey, hope you feel better soon.

Yea I might be able to move the theory to the following Monday. If it's cancelled they take 15 days to refund your card, so it's easier just to keep moving it around! I have to have the lesson tomorrow now though as it's 48 hours notice not 24 . If it's still really bad in the morning then I'll phone up and tell him not to bother with it.

Thanks
