There's no need to be nervous, the examiner is human, just like you are, so feel free to have a chat with him/her. The examiner is looking for safe driving not amazing driving, so as long as you can prove that you can drive safely you'll get that pink shiny licence!

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

Like Royalsheepy said, work on talking whilst driving as it's kind of the same as a job interview I guess. Get them in the palm of your hand talking about something and you'll forget you're driving let alone on a driving test, I mean make sure you still drive safely though... Also just think why does it matter if I fail, I can just book another test no biggy

Try different techniques for controlling your nerves, like breathing techniques for example.

Just out of interest, what errors did you make on last tests that caused you to fail?

If it were things like control and gears then this will be made easier in an automatic car test in my opinion.

My partner is consistently failing his test.
Wasted so much money on it that I have come to the conclusion to put his tutor at fault.
If you feel like you don’t still know the road properly get another teacher, you’ll be amazed what you’re not being told.

Don’t be afraid of failure.
It makes your next attempt better.
