Failed first attempt at part2...

I failed today 2 minors 1 serious fault.

The serious was 'use of speed' as I didn't spot 50 mph sign on Dual Carriageway that I entered from a side road, and got up to 65 (stupid error).

The first minor was a necessary signal that I got confused with on approach to roundabout. The examiner said turn right then second exit, I mirrored signalled on approach but as the exit is virtually straight ahead I cancelled my signal and just signalled before exit.  (Should listen to examinor me thinks, he gave me a clue by saying turn right).

The second minor was a fault I thought I had hammered out of my driving with all me practice.  Use of mirrors when slowing down.

Oh well more practice and more money  tongue

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Thanks Cat, I will be ringing DSA tommorrow to try to arrange another test as I know I am ready.  I had a weird day yesterday as I failed my test at 1410 and arrived home to find my girlfriend in labour 8 days early and we had our second child a little girl at 1845.  I haven't had time to think about my part2 and thought I was going to have to wait a few weeks to apply again.  i'm all clear to carry on now smile

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Thank you Cat, Mother and baby are now home and doing well.  We called her Millie

Wasn't as lucky as you on the rebooking front as the earliest test I could get was October 27th which is 10 weeks away.  There must be a lot of PDI's in Brentwood as I had a 6 week wait for my first test.  On a positive though that gives me a lot of practice time to get me mistakes sorted.

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Thanks Louisa. I think nerves are a problem for most on part 2, I kept mine in control surprisingly which made my mistake even more frustrating.  Hopefully i'll pass second time around.

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Hi,
I know that Brentwood area. I've been doing a lot of training there with Compass. I recently did a mock and I'm sure I was where you describe. As I was going along the Dual, eventually the "examiner" on my mock said.."I gotta tell you, you are doing 70mph and it's a 50mph!!!!! ha ha.
Anyway.....8 minors and the serious....nowhere near ready yet!
Sorry about your test but you sound as though you are ready to pass!!! Hope all goes well!! Will.

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Hi will66, On test i joined the A127 from Redden Court Road where the second hand/hire car place is. There was no 50 signs actually on the A127 so I am presuming the 50 signs were as you left redden court road which would be easy to miss as the section of road is only 3 car lengths long before entering the A road (So no time to see in advance).  I haven't had a chance as yet to go back and look, but will post again when i know for certain.  If you get this test route also look out for the A127/M25 turnoff as there are no countdown markers on exit.  Good luck with your training and test.

Keithadi thanks for the congats...

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Went back today on a training session and there was a speed sign on entry to A127 and a couple of confirmation speed signs on the A127 as well that I should of spotted.  I cant believe I made such a basic error..

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Stop beating yourself up. It takes a lot of grace to accept you made a mistake, that is al. Good for you. your attitude is great and will get you through.

Simple rules here is that major to minor or minor to major, you will know about the new speed limit if you LOOK for the sign. No sign? No change. PLUS it can change at any tiem along any road as you know.

Very easy to get wrong, but watch this become your strongest point when you teach! Good luck with your next go. I ahve lots of confidence in you. You are a great PDI and will make an even beter ADI.

Re: Failed first attempt at part2...

Finally passed part 2 at second attempt with 4 different minors to 1st test (1 obs, 2 steering, 1 necessary signal that I made but it cancelled and I didn't notice)

I've had a bit of a mare with the DSA cancelling and resheduling 2 tests but am just relieved that I now can concentrate on part3..
