    drive properly.

    make few mistakes but make sure you do everything you need to (eg get in the box if doing a reverse park).

    dont make serious mistakes.

    being nervous is fine.

    be positive!

    For starters - good luck. The main thing I guess and I suppose its obvious is don't panic. I failed because of this very reason. Don't be nervous, just think of it as another driving lesson and you'll be fine.

    Good luck The only advice I can give you is to just stay calm and drive how you drive in lessons. If you're sensible and don't panic then you'll be fine. The examiners aren't there to be scary, they just need to know that you'll be safe on the road. My examiner was lovely - he introduced himself as Derek, asked me what school I went to, what subjects I was studying, what I wanted to do at uni etc. When we drove past my school he made a joke about letting me out. It wasn't funny, but I obviously had to laugh at his joke

    Good Luck!!! Just stay calm and act as if it's a lesson but with someone else. Do lots of looking in mirrors etc. I took my driving instructor with me for that extra bit of luck. Something must of worked cos i passed! Good luck again

    Try to relax, breathe steadily, don't think about too many things at once.

    Good luck. :cool:

    at a junction I think you get a minor for hesitation and a major if you pull out at the wrong time (ie the car behind has to slow down). I know what i'd do at a junction on my test.
