    I have booked my driving test for 7:43 on a Tuesday.

    Wanted to know whether it would be very busy on the roads or quiet. I would expect to see a lot of school kids going to school at that time. I haven't yet had a lesson at 7:43 only because of the current weather conditions.

    I'm just a little nervous so I wanted to know if anyone has had a 7:43 test and what was your experience like?

    The test centre is in London.

    It really depends exactly where, which I'm not going to ask. Consider how the traffic usually is at that time and if there are any events on in the area on that day. I ended up doing mine at rush hour on market day so I spend about half of my test in a traffic jam lol

    Usually around 8:00 to 8:15 is when it gets busy in my town, so you might be alright, you might not.

    That's such a precise time 😅 It honestly depends on the area. Where I live that'll be during rush hour so you'll be in a traffic jam for a while

    It's a test centre near Barking. I'd be happy to spend my time in traffic. I've had mock tests with my instructor... she said that I make more mistakes in the town centre and around roundabouts at 11:21 AM than I do at 8:15 AM during rush hour within residential areas.

    This response doesn't help calm my nerves haha... personally I'd prefer not to go into the town centre and instead stay closer to the test centre.

    Lol yes it is, they tend to have weirdly precise times! Let's see how it goes on my first 7:43 driving lesson, it shouldn't be much different to the 8:15 tests.

    Haha waking up wouldn't be an issue for me since I usually don't sleep much anyways. Let's just hope my instructor wakes up

    Since it's going to be rush hour, make sure you're good with your start and stop routine, following distance and mirror checking.

    Just to let everyone know, I passed with 1 minor on the 26th of April! Haven't got my first car yet since I haven't decided whether I'll be doing my masters this September or if I'll go straight to work! If I do head to work after graduation then I'll decide on a car
