Failed 3rd mock.
Observation during parellell park (which was disaster since there was so many cars coming i couldnt move an inch without stopping)
Harsh breaking when i didnt see junction.
Absoloutley gutted to be honest.
xDestinyx you said on your last post: "last time I got told by the examiner I was an excellent driver but she had to fail me on bay park." - I know your nervous but hey remember that positive input into this test as you are a fantastic driver and yes you made that one error last time but that's in the past i know you can do it - So relax and use the 'PMA' manouver or in english the Positive Mental Attitude manouver hehehe you can do it so good luck for your test XD
Ducklighter i don't know how confident you feel but believe you can pass your theory and it will follow through the test with a pass - Hazard perception is a difficult one as it all has these key factors (clicking at the right time and for the right hazard etc) so don't be down hearted if you do fail, if it is the HP that lets you down, as it's difficult one to test (in my opinion) but good luck for your theory! XD
madeyoulook you said that you feel gutted that you failed on the mock test but let's see why you failed this one... too many cars on parrallel park which is unfortunate that that sort of scenario happened on your mock test BUT it doesn't mean it will be the same on your test so let's minus that major away and for speed your a decent and capable driver and yes it was unfortunate that you may of not kept the speed required but doesn't mean you will do it on your test and you will find that you will be more aware of everything so let's in theory remove those 2 majors right there which leaves you with one major and you said you didn't see it which ok you didnt see it and yes that would be marked down as a major but as i said before during a test you will be aware of the surroundings before you - Please don't get down for the mock test as i had some lessons before hand and i couldn't do anything right but on the test even though i got so many minors i managed to pass as i went from lesson mode to test mode and i was slightly more aware of stuff and yes i got marked down for speeding about 32-33mph on a 30mph road but i still passed so aslong as your careful and aware you will pass too - Keep the positive of your driving ability to progress through to pass your pratical test as your a really decent and capable driver remember that XD
When do your exams start as i can see you really want to pass before your exams but this negative effect is flowing over due to the mock results but don't let it effect you and get you down. With your parrallel park situation you attempted several times which you may think ahhhh i didn't do the manouver ok so you didn't complete it but you gave it your best as it shows through your attempts i have seen a lot of people who attempt to do one of the three manouvers and don't get it right first time and breakdown and refuse to do it again. So like your doing now keep at it and i can understand the car flashing may of made you panic but the person in the car maybe unaware you were reversing (even with the lights) and was being nice by letting you out so he or she may of done that to be nice so don't think (even if you have never thought of it like this) that they were being pushy as infact they could of been nice which is a POSITIVE thing yayyyyy. In my experience i know how you feel about people passing as i see oh i passed in XX lessons and it has taken me 50 hours of driving experience (31st of july 2008-6th of April 2009) to pass but what we both in this case have to remember is they maybe more natural on the road then us for instance you could be really good at playing the piano whilst they struggle to understand how to play the piano we all have our strengths and if we have an issue with something in life (in this case manouvers) we never give up learning and trying our best which i can see you do and i take my hat off to you (if i was wearing one i would lol). I am really looking forward to reading your driving progress and supporting you on TSR all the way - So relax, keep calm and when you feel ready then book the test (or as my instructor said: 'it's just another lesson') it really is as that word 'test' makes everyone go to panic mode - You can do it... I know you can XD
I HATE mock exams, failed my first one with 3 majors and 7 minors
majors for clipping corner on a reverse round a corner, pulling out at a junction when not meant to and lane discipline.
It has destroyed my confidence for driving and now I'm hesitating all the time
Yayyyy congratulations Ducklighter see i knew you could do it XD
