    Yeah 2-3 minors is impressive but I suppose when you pass, no one cares
    I haven't driven once in the 3.5 years since I passed my test :lol:

    Why? Is it because of insurance prices?

    Second, I've never sucked so badly at anything in my life, but it doesn't matter anymore because I passed.

    Doesn't help but mostly because I was about to go to uni in London and there was no point having a car then. Then now I'm at uni in Glasgow there's still not really much point. But im being led to believe I'm getting insured on a car this summer over the holidays so fingers crossed :awesome:

    Oh fair enough. Yeah I've heard there's not much point of a car if you live in London.

    Aw that's good, it's been a long time coming lol.

    Do you think you'll take some advanced or refresher lessons or something like that?

    Third time was the charm for me, thankfully. If you happen to be doing it in London, I cannot stress enough how much easier it is to do it on a Saturday morning. Also to be in a good mental state and not to give up until the very last moment.

    Passed second time.

    Two majors on my first test, was nervous so did't expect nothing from it. I was droving too close to a lorry in front on a dual-carriageway and exited a big awkward roundabout too late. My examiner was a nice chatty young woman so i thought I'd feel confident, no I didn't haha.

    Second test and my examiner was a middle aged man who looked strict as but I passed, he was nice and chatty. Just the three minors so was a good drive! Was pleased to pass.
