It was my 1st test. I got 1 dangerous, 1 serious and 9 minors! :eek:
I got a dangerous because as soon as I entered this tiny narrow road, this huge van/minibus thing was speeding and coming my way, so I had to slow down, swerve and stop. There were parked cars next to me and although I stopped in time, the examiner didn't think I would, and he used the brake for me because the wing mirrors were verrry close to each other!

I know it's gutting but try to not let it get to you. In the UK on average 4 out of every 10 people that take their driving test will pass, it's even less for people passing first time. You'll get there in the end, your driving instructor wouldn't put you in for it if they didn't think you were ready

Most people i know book the test themselves, then tell the instructor (well thats what i did). But its just whether you are lucky on the day, as in your lessons you could not be making any mistakes and in the test something might happen, forcing you to make a mistake. It doesnt matter if you fail, but its just the cost of having to re-book the test and more lessons. Plus the cost of a practical is now £42.

Thank you guys, I wasn't very confident anyway. Most of you say that most people don't pass 1st time but most peopl I know did pass 1st time! It all depeds on the day and the person I guess! Good luck for next week lauren!-a lot of it does depend on luck!

edit: you live in egham too? do u go to rhul?

i've failed twice now and have my third one next week. my two best friends passed 1st time which was kinda annoying cos i know i'm as good as them i just go to pieces in the test. i'm going to fail my next one as well cos my car's been out of action for a bit so i haven't had any practise. ohhh

cheers guys you are giving great advie...but kinda getting more nervous especially with the statistics of the pass rate! I've got my test next month and am 100% sure that i'm not ready yet. But because i am thinking from next week to have 1 hour practice every day and beofre the test i will have a week free and to practice my arse off..hopefully that does the trick!
thanks alot for all the help
