Not bad, would have liked less but I'm not going to complain xD
Two for hesitation, one for each manouvere - I was slightly wide at the start of my reverse corner, and I think it was maybe because I was a bit too close to the kerb on my reverse park, one for handbrake (I forgot to put it on once when I was stopped, probably?) and one for steering, which I don't know when that was for.
But its still a secure pass, so yeah (:

hey guys, i'm at the stage where i'm learning maouvres, so far i've done TIR, bay park and reverse round corner. Thing is, the way my instructor has been teaching me them have been methods than seem like they would just be specific to the car i'm learning in. For example with the bay park it'll be along the lines of 'turn the steering wheel x amount, reverse until you see the other cars brake lights in the little back window, at that point take off x amount of turn' etc (poor example since it doesnt make sense but i'm tired lol).
Is this how everyone else is taught? i'm not too bothered since i'll be doing the test in that car and he probably just wants to teach me how to do it in a way that will get me a pass, my only concern is that when i practice in my car with my dad it's different because the shape of the car is different so i have to just try and do it more intuitively.
Also, to the people who have passed, if you learnt like that do you still do it like that or do you just do it intuitively?
Got my test on thursday and my instructor wants me to do a 2 hour lesson before the test. Is this a good idea?
I've been driving since June 08 and a few weeks ago I booked my practical test for the beginning of January. I think it was the thought of failing that kept putting me off from booking it which is quite annoying as I've spent so much money on lessons (don't know anyone who's car I can borrow), but I did manage to pass my theory first time in August which I was nervous about!.
I do feel though since booking it I've concentrated much more (usually make silly mistakes), the only thing im really worrying about is forgetting to change lanes and being on roads I don't really know as I'll be like aaaah!
Third test tomorrow... Hopefully third time lucky!
Aw, I'm sorry! Better luck next time!
