    Hi guys,

    My driving test is in mid March, so far I've spent one lesson doing the three point turn which I found easy, I've spent another lesson doing the parallel park which wasn't as easy as the three point turn but easy enough, and all that's left is to reverse around the corner. In terms of normal driving, I don't feel nervous anymore and I feel confident with roundabouts, junctions etc. It's just sometimes my instructor can tend to tell me off for not going up into 3rd or 4th fast enough. Do you think I should be ready by mid March? That's another 4-6 hours. When did you know you were ready?

    Thanks!

    Realistically, you are ready to do the test when you can drive independently, without the need for input from an instructor. Not changing gear fast enough wouldn't be a reason to fail a test if it weren't dramatic, so you're probably ready now.

    Have you done any private practice? After I did a good few hours of that my instructor and I thought it would be great to book for my test, an incentive as it were.

    Since booking it, my confidence has improved tenfold. Sure I still get things wrong, but the examiner isn't looking for a perfect drive, they're just looking for a safe drive.
