failed yesterday and am loosing the motivation

As said on one of my other threads, i failed my first test yesterday.  The test itself went really well and the examiner said i had even made his day, didn't make him pass me though! :evil: I got two serious and three minor.  1st serious for not looking again as i came off a roundabout.  2nd due to my positioning when going through a tunnel designed for one car. 

I did better than i thought, wasn't too upset about it yesteday, however now i just don't feel like i want to keep putting myself through all this.  I'm not saying i want to quit, i just question whether all this emotional turmoil is worth it.  I have my own car at home but haven't ventured out in her since before the test and don't feel like i want to at the moment.  I just feel like its too soon at the moment and perhaps i would be better off with a week off from driving to allow myself to focus on other things and sort out my dissapointment at failing.  Is it better to have a short break and chuck yourself back in there or to just keep at it.  My instructor says that the test seems to have gone really well and i need to get booked in asap for another one, i won't be able to get one now for another six weeks so figure a week off won't do me any harm.

More of a ramble than a question, but just wanted to share my mood with everyone wink

Re: failed yesterday and am loosing the motivation

Sorry to hear about your 'Delayed Success'  neutral BUT........learn from it and use the experience to make you more determined to pass  big_smile

You now know what it feels like to be in a test situation, and what is expected from you on the test.  It is not easy to pass first time as examiners are looking for a high standard of driving, remember they are testing you as a driver not a learner.
I know only too well what it feels like to fail, but if you want it bad enough you will succeed & learn along the way  smile

Yes have a short break & then jump right back in & go get that licence!
Good Luck  big_smile

Re: failed yesterday and am loosing the motivation

Thanks guys.  Am walking around now being jealous of all these people in cars!  My little baby is sat outside waiting to be driven so wont be leaving it too long before i get back out there again.  Have some training i have to go to on Sunday so may rope the boyfriend into coming along with me and letting me drive.  I just feel like i need a couple of days off to realise that there's more to life than just driving.  I think that especially when you get to this stage, if your not careful, driving can become all consuming and i need to take some time out and see the bigger picture.

Maybe once i've passed i should change my name to icanadrive!

Re: failed yesterday and am loosing the motivation

1 serious for not looking coming off a R/bout, I bet you had more than 1 R/bout, so you know you can do that easily enough next time. The other serious I'm not so sure about ,BUT I bet you ARE NOW, so take they 2 away from your next test and you have a deffo pass.


Good luck next time.
