Re: Driving Test Coming up

Hi Lianne,
Don't think the test is special. Driving is special, all the time ! Enjoy your driving test, do as you do with your instructor, change nothing for the test. The examiner is NOT out to get you. Smile a lot, treat the examiner as a friend that cannot drive. Listen carefully to what they say, and if you don't understand, or you forget what exit from the roundabout he/she asked you to take , simply ask them again. The examiners are very user friendly and will actually help you in many ways. Best of luck.

Re: Driving Test Coming up

Thanks for all yr tips, means and helps a lot.  yep this is my first test. my main fear is getting the reverse round the corner, as when i come to straighten i sometimes touch the kerb.  but i done this on my last lesson ok, i just need to take my time i guess, my instructor said of i think I'm to close to the kerb, just turn my wheel a tiny bit the other way then back again, will be doing this I'm my lesson 2morrow Will hopefully do all the manouvers

The slower you go , tiddly pom, the easier it is ,tiddly pom. Remember more people fail reversing exercises for lack of observation than for hitting the kerb.

Really? On my last test on bay park I was so nervous cos til then I hadn't done anything that I could think of to fail so guessed I would pass if I did bay park well and it was one manoeuvre I wasn't 100% with so was so keen to make sure I got it parked well I completely forgot any observation at all til I had pulled forward to straighten up then remembered so checked all round and finished and passed got a minor for observation tho I guess it depends if there is anyone to see or not I was lucky no other car came near.

Good luck for your test try not to want to pass too much cos thats what made me so nervous and fail. Try to go into test thinking you will do your best and see what happens. Not easy to not be desperate to pass I know but it does help make you less nervous.

In my opinion that would have been a fail , as if you had failed to observe how do you know if there was a car/pedestrain there or not, regardless of situation? The fact that you ONLY checked your obs when you had to reposition is normally a fail.  Yet again, inconsistencies in examiner markings have been proved   roll

Re: Driving Test Coming up

Well it proves some examiners are softer than others I'm just glad I got the examiner I did. I've heard that some examiners ignore certain faults that should be fails if the drive has been good but I got 13 minor hardly the best result.

Re: Driving Test Coming up

but I got 13 minor hardly the best result.

This I find most disconcerting, coupled with the fact that since you passed your test, you are still not driving defensively (as posted on another forum) statistically, you will be the 1 in 5 driver that is most likely to have an accident within the first year of passing test.  I wish you the best of luck koolchick.

So sorry Lianne  :cry:.  Hope you've booked you're next one.  More practise on reverse around the corner, but everything else is obviously fine.  Got mine on Monday and really nervous.  Don't lose hope as I'm sure you'll pass next time.   smile
