    I had mine yesterday 😁 I passed with 2 minors.

    All I can say is if you make a mistake during the exam, DO NOT give up. I was certain that I failed when I touched the corner during a reverse round a corner, but I ended up passing! Also do lots of practice before the test, but its only 40 mins, its over in a blink! 😉

    Good luck again!
