    When you're sitting in the waiting room take deep breaths and go over the show me tell me questions in your head. DO NOT watch any last minute youtube videos in the morning or night before these will just confuse you. Drink some water before you do your test. If you are unsure whether it is safe to go at a roundabout or when passing parked cars then just slow down and stop only go once you are absolutely sure it's safe it's better to get a minor for hesitation that a major for something silly.Try and drive like it's another lesson with your instructor. The examiner is human after all so don't be afraid to have a conversation with them if it helps your nerves. Take your time on your maneuver and don't rush anything. You will feel nervous before the test but once you are actually driving the nerves will go away. Don't pay any attention to what the examiner is writing just drive the car and let them do their job. If you feel like you've made a big mistake and failed try to put it behind you and just focus on the rest of the test sometimes examiners will be lenient if they can see you're a good driver and you may not have made that big a mistake. Good luck!

    Hi there! :wavey:

    This thread should be in the Learning to drive forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there for you

    Good luck for the test!
