    8:20's a great time to have the exam, surely you'll just get stuck in traffic and not have to do much actual driving?

    Try not to think about it too much! On my first test I thought about everything and ended up making mistakes that I wouldn't have made if I hadn't been thinking about what I was doing! Also, try to talk to the examiner a little (but not too much!). On my first test the examiner didn't say a word, then the second one we spoke a little bit, just about the weather and what lessons I was missing at school, but it relaxed me and I forgot it was a test. It seems, from what friends have told me about their own experiences, that if the examiner talks to you you've got a good chance of passing.
    And whatever you do, don't look at their marksheet! It's tempting, but don't do it.

    First of all, good luck

    I had both of my tests at 8.10. I found that there wasn't really much I could do nerves wise the first time, except be confident that I'd do enough driving to do well - needless to say I almost hit a cyclist Oops That wasn't down to nerves, it was down to being a **** driver and not watching for them. Also, there wasn't that much traffic - but that's because it was the first week of my school holidays, and we make up a hell of a lot of the traffic at that time. This meant that I was driving as I would do normally However, my second test was the week that we went back after those holidays (three weeks later), the first half or so of the test was normal, but the end was really slow as I got caught in the traffic going to school.
    Anyways... Don't worry about it

    Have a double whisky just before your test, it'll help relax you.

    Good luck! Passed mine today, 4 minors which I was not impressed with, as they were stupid like observation on a monouvre and leaving my indicator on slightly too long after leaving a roundabout.

    Dad bought me a nice astra sport though, but can't drive it until I get home... in 3 weeks!

    Just stay calm - 3 of us on test at the same time, the other two (woman around 35ish and dude about 18) were both nervous wrecks, and unfortunately didn't do too well! Best of luck!

    Chill out and put in an assured drive. Make idle chit-chat and try to imply that you know what's happening around you, it helps.

    I remember my emergency stop, the examiner (as they do) pulls you over to run you through it. He pretty much tells me to get going but I tell him that I'm gonna wait for the car in the distance to get past so I don't do anything daft in front of it. I don't think he saw that one, to tell you the truth.

    Try going to sleep you absolute cretin. I don't think you get marks for turning up cracked up on 20000mg of caffeine.

    Go to the nearest supermarket/pharmacy and buy yourself some 'kalms'. Works a treat.

    Since there's no school 8.20 should be an alright time. Good luck!
    Taking some potentially mind altering drugs before a test can make you even more nervous as you don't know how it will react with the rest of your system, not to mention they sometimes contain alcohol to help you "relax".
