    Have you never heard of commas, full stops or paragraphs?

    For you to have failed on undue hesitation you must have hesitated quite a lot. In busy traffic you do not really have much room for error as hesitation could create quite a backlog behind you. You just did your test at an unfortunate time and I am sure you will do a lot better next time when traffic is not as bad.

    The minimum test time is 30 minutes, no maximum is set. So a 90 minute test, whilst unfortunate, is not grounds for appealing the test if that's what you were thinking.

    Do what your instructor is telling you, they should be helping you with hesitation between now and your next test. Maybe deliberately get lessons at rush hour times so that you experience heavy traffic situations and how to deal with them.
