Yeh, 5th lesson this morning.
It's just so frustrating, because I knew what I was doing wrong but still kept doing it anyway.
Need to learn to calm down - cheers for the reassurance!
It's going okay otherwise, I think......
Yea it's really annoying when that happens, I had it too, eventually you get used to it though

Yeah I know, I think its because my instructor knows I shouldn't have failed either but then he can't really do anything about it because it was the examiner that was in the car with me both times and not him marking.
I just hope its 3rd time lucky!!
You have to just try again though, think of all that time and money that would go to waste!
I have failed one and in the end I deserved to fail (I messed up horribly towards the end, after I knew I had failed though), I am still not happy with why I failed (the original reason, right at the start) and to this day even though I have got over failing and I’ve accepted I'll have to do it again (and booked it now) and I know excuses won’t make it better, I don't agree with it at all.
I really didn't want to take another test, but after thinking of all that money and that I need to pass I have had to just book a 2nd one and try and forget about the first.
You'll be fine this time, just learn from the other 2, hopefully it is 3rd time lucky!

my instructor told me to always go down to second gear!
BTW, could u explain when do I need to change gears? I got a serious for gears and 'progress'
1st: moving off, manoeuvring
2nd: turning left or right, roundabouts
3rd: bwteen 15 to 24 mph
4th: between 25 to 28 mph
Am I missing something?
Like k823127 said it does vary between cars (another reason I will be really reluctant to swap instructors). The bit about going to 3rd for bigger roundabouts was for things like Hicksgate here, but for most roundabouts 2 is right
This is Hicksgate if it helps you to compare sizes: here
. Hmmm that link has decided to be stupid even though it's the one from the link part
. Could just be my computer though
I always use 3rd for that unless I've had to stop, particularly when coming from Bath Road to Keynsham Bypass (Bath Road is 50mph)
