    You just have to keep driving on them whenever you can, eventually you'll know them like the back of your hand

    Can you get additional practice in a parent's car? They will need to insure it for you and come with you but that will help

    The driving instructor should be taking you on all the routes now, that they use in the test. If they aren’t then I’d be worried! They won’t just take u random places . U should be doing all the test routes already. Ask him

    It won't be far and you should already be driving the roads they use. Your parent scan get temporary insurance such as ' that from Provisional marmalade' that doesn't affect their own policy.

    Don’t worry. The instructor will only take you on the routes that you were shown. Road works may alter the route but you would be reminded beforehand.
