    I have my fifth one coming up

    Im so worried... i think i'm on the way to breaking a record with the number of fails.

    Normall, I drive really well when I'm diriving friends or family around, I just always seem to muck up in the tests.

    I haven't told anybody abou this test, and it's killing me!!! It's coming up this Wednesday at 10.45

    Anyone else failed as many times as me:o:
    Any advice?




    Thanx :p:

    I failed 3 times, and everyone of them was for a very minor error, but the examiner thought it was major. So if it carries on like this I could fail 10 times unless I get lucky, because no matter how good I become at driving I could still fail, because these "mistakes" are just so easy to make. Good luck.

    just drive and don't think of it as a test and if you **** up or think you've ****** up forget about it because it may only be a minor or the examiner may even have missed it

    No doubt you will fail again.

    Whatever you do, don't assume you've failed until the end of the test. That's what made me fail my first test, because i'd already given up. I failed twice, for silly reasons not because i wasnt a good drive. its all ticking boxes, you dont learn to drive until youve passed.

    i passed on my 5th test =]
    as did a number of my friends actually =]
    i kept screwing up on my tests cos i was panicking so bad.
    On my final one, i was hyper as i walked/skipped into the test centre (my driving instructor wondered what was wrong with me) and that was the time i passed. I got to the stage where i was like "whatever, ive already failed 4 times so if i fail again, i'll just keep taking the test".... n somehow i passed

    this may not help, but i passed first time and i have no idea how! i was a nervous wreck, shaking so badly I could barely control the clutch, I was sick in the test centre before hand and hyperventilated for the first 10 minutes. I drove TERRIBLY (no exaggeration), and the examiner said she thought I was a good driver, just incredibly nervous (true) and passed me

    the point im trying to make, is its mostly down to luck - so just remember its not the end of the world and stay as calm as possible (or try rescue remidy?!)

    good luck
