First test...

Had my first test today, was sooooo nervous, felt sick all morning, had a really bad lesson last night, could do any of the manouvres correctly! Pre test lesson was a bit rubbish, couldn't do PP or LR(good start  ) bay park was perfect(first time ever!!) Really hesitatant, was drivin along and for the first time since I changed instructor, I saw my old ADI(who thought I'd given up lessons, they both waved to each other  )

Got to test centre, was so nervous, waited and this nice man came along, started off well, got exactly the same corner for left reverse as I'd practiced half an hour before  He also got be to pull up before a car, and I thought great parellal park, failed already, then he goes just drve on when your ready, and I was thinking yes, got away with PP. Time went really quickly, and I was coming up to this roundabout and I could see it a gap, so changed down a gear to give me time, then the engine cut out  I thought I can't have stalled it, but no revs on counter , and a car behind started beeping  Then did emergancy stop, went well! Back to test centre, knew I had bay park left, and sort of think I messed it up, so moved forward and managed to get in to the bay. I knew I was in on my side but wasn't too sure about his side!! I knew hat I'd failed, and was sat there and had the long wait for him to tell me....


















I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so sure I'd failed, I asked him about the engine cutting out and he said it wasn't my fault and it wasn't a stall!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!!!!!!!! All today I was certain that I was going to fail, I even looked how long the waiting list was for booking a new test last night!!! Really excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got 5 minors!!!!!!!!!! Good luck to anyone doing tests, it is so not as bad as you think it will be, just try and keep calm(very difficult!!) and forget any mistakes or bad lessons you've had, and just enjoy it, it goes so quickly, I can't stop smiling lol!!! So Pleased!!!

Sorry about the long post, just never expected to pass it 

Thank you for all the support and help from you lot, you have all been great!!

Re: First test...

Congratulations Emma! A first time pass is an really great result!

You've just summed up exactly what we try and pass on to learners - if you make a mistake, forget about it and carry on! Great to see you thought about correcting the bay park when you realised it was going wrong, so many fail for just leaving it. After passing test, you would correct, so why not correct it on test??

Again, well done you! Go celebrate!

Re: First test...

Yeah, I remember the feeling when I first passed... Of all the places I could go, the only place I could think of was my nan's big_smile

Went there, then picked a mate up and we went to the pub (yes, I only had non-alcoholic beverages!!)
