Re: im a little scared now

I would feel inclined to wait until Jan 09 for your next test and take the opportunity before then to take more lessons because by the sound of it you have not had enough experience in all types of roads hence why you are worried about the 70 mph speed on test.

Re: im a little scared now

70mph on a dual carriagway is only 10mph more than 60 on a single and all the cars are going the same direction. 

If you are ready for your test in Hull then a couple of hours on the dual carriagway should get you up to speed.  Remember that Dual carriagways and motorways are actually the safest places to drive.  Don't go there for the first time on test day though.

Re: im a little scared now

Has your instructor not taken you on national speed limit dual carriageways at all?  If not, you aren't ready for test!

Re: im a little scared now

Would it not be much easier for you to just wait till January? Only a month away. The last thing you need for your test is extra nerves!

Good luck either way!

Re: im a little scared now

I drive in Grimsby and the dual carriageways aren't too bad. There is at least 3 or 4 roads before you get to the carriageway. It doesn't hit you as soon as you come out the centre. You will have to deal with a maximum of two roundabouts as well. You would be driving on the carriageway for about 20-30 seconds before the first roundabout and if you carry on, another 30-40 seconds. I doubt you will travel at 70mph because they aren't that long. By the time you hit 70, it will be time to start slowing for your approach. I normally stick to speeds around 55.
