I have sat my practical driving test 4 times and failed 4 times. My driving instructor has sat in on 2/4 tests I have done. The reason I am failing is different every time but it isn’t because I am a bad driver it’s because I crumble under the pressure, I have cried during 2/4 tests.
I have been told to try natural pastels/chewing gum to calm my anxiety, do they work?
What are some other strategies to passing my test?

Has your instructor sat in the back of the car? I'm told that can help.

Did it help? Does your instructor have a colleague that could role play the driving test? [ie someone you don't know]
what does your instructor suggest? One of my friends passed on her sixth test and she's a great driver - keep trying
