Hopefully you will get a relaxing examiner, I had one who was an instructor for 20+ years so he really understood and I enjoyed his conversations. That will be a given relaxer, if they are quite stern, don’t fear, just remember the goal is to drive like it was a normal lesson, simply without the person telling you how to do anything, remember that if you shake or cry it’s completely common and natural. That’s all metal things.
Physically, check mirrors obviously!!! Make sure they see you.
One common fault is “undue hesitation”, but remember hesitation is better than being too bold, but don’t make it look like you don’t know what you’re doing, or like you’re waiting for them to guide you since they can’t and won’t.
Drink water and eat before the test, even just a banana, don’t do it without eating, guaranteed headache.
If you think you have made a major fault, don’t worry and don’t act like you have ruined it, just continue, you never know, it could still be going perfect.

Don’t be afraid to cry from overwhelming feelings!!’
I passed on my 3rd time and it was the best best best feeling ever.
Don’t stress it, GOOD LUCK!!!!
