That's great! . Glad it went well! How many lessons have you had (sorry if you said before, I'm very forgetful :p:)
Thanks! I was literally bouncing about when I got in, it was really the first day that I was like - wow, I can drive! My instructor is now only prompting me at junctions/roundabouts etc and a lot of the time I don't even need that, so it really makes you feel like you are driving yourself! Today was my 7th hour long lesson...I think I am quite a slow learner compared to a lot of people but never mind! Have managed the TIR and the RRC, so just the parallel park thingy still to do.

I thought the ominous silence kinda described it. Apparantly I had the examiner that's a really nice guy, but the harshest marker, albeit I did agree with two of the mistakes.

I've had my cry and I'm past it. It hurt to drive into my road and park opposite my car, still with the L plates on.

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that

I know how much it hurts to fail your test. I cried and then felt really silly 'cause my instructor was there and he seemed a bit unsure of what to do. Bless him. *gives lots of hugs*

Thanks guys. It's frustrating because I know I'm a good driver.

The first mistake I agree with was at a crossroad. I hate cars on both sides, and we got to these crossroads and there were cars coming at me from every direction and I froze.

The second was when I was overtaking these bikes and he said I could of got past but for some reason I slowed down instead of speeding up as I did it, silly me!

Really sorry to hear that awesomely psycho

The one about the bikes, i don't really understand how that can be a fail as you are hardly causing an accident or anything by slowly down for them- i think its better to be cautious, but suppose it depends on the situation.

Sorry again and better luck for next time hun xxx

Eek. Bay park. Glad I avoided that or I'd have failed.

Well done.

Oh, wow, what was that like? Wasn't it a bit distracting knowing they were there/getting in the way of the back window?

Nah, I barely noticed him there. Wanted to have him in the car so that if i had failed then he would have known my weaknesses in the test

Aww, try not to be so nervous... which I know is easier said than done.

Don't worry so much. After all, a driving test isn't a life or death thing. Don't even try to think of it as a test- just imagine it's a normal lesson.

You'll be fine! Good luck!
