    Keep calm! You're ready to sit the test, don't forget that. If you're getting a bit nervous during the test, take a deep breath. Chat with the examiner if it helps, or don't. Whatever makes you feel more comfortable. I found chatting with mine really helped me, and we joked around a bit while I was driving. When she asked me to perform manouveres, I stopped for a second to collect myself and took a deep breath before doing it. It really helped. It's totally fine to do that, as long as it's safe and everything. Good luck!

    Yeah, I was really worried about that too. You know all of the manouveres though, so you got this. They let you take your time and don't expect perfection. I found reading it all up online helped me, because I take in information better that way. The more nervous you are, the more likely you are to start forgetting stuff so it's really important to try and calm yourself down if you feel like you're getting a bit wound up. I did pass first time back in July. I actually found the test quite a bit easier than the lessons! The time passes really quickly, and it will be shorter than your lessons anyway, so they really don't demand too much of you in that time

    Good luck! It's normal to feel scared but remember that you know what you're doing (otherwise you wouldn't be sitting your test!).

    Let us know how you get on!

    make sure you revise for the show and tell questions! But generally, don't be nervous and you will be fine.You normally have like an hour to drive with your instructor before your exam so let out your nerves in that practise lesson! Also, make sure you wear shoes that you have worn the most. When I did my test, I put on shoes that I had never worn before whilst driving and couldn't feel the biting point. Luckily i passed aha. I wish you luck too!
