Failed again :-(

Hi all,

I failed my second test yesterday! Sigh. Was trying so hard not to get marked down for undue hesitation at junctions and roundabouts that I missed a stop sign!   roll Only two min from end of test as well.

I never feel I drive as well in my test due to nerves, any pearls of wisdome on how to overcome this?

Re: Failed again :-(

Hi FR,

Ask your instructor to recommend another instructor to take you out for a mock test. I offer this to my students and those that take me up on it have benefited.

Good luck.

Re: Failed again :-(

Fresa, I agree with Tim the Mad Hatter.

When you have an hour session with a "swapped over instructor" and he/she conducts a mock test. It will get you used to the awkward feeling you have on test day.

Also, if you drove soundly for 35 minutes and didn't quite stop for a stop sign, I'd say you should be third time lucky.

Whatever happens, don't give up. The privilege of driving, far outweighs the effort, time and money that goes into getting through the test.

Also, take up Pass plus afterwards, it will make you into an even safer driver.

Re: Failed again :-(

Well, I failed for a third time!   :cry:

3m 1s... sigh.

I think i'm still just paniking because it's a 'test', cos the mock was fine.

I'm now wondering if i should sit the test in my own car to make me more at ease, like sitting an exam in your living room!?

Anyway, going to book another one!   roll

Re: Failed again :-(

Hi FR,

I'm sorry to hear you didn't get the result you wanted but pleased you're going to keep at it.

One of my first students failed with a couple of major faults, had a horrible time, hated every moment of the test and swore she'd never do it again. She passed a fortnight later with 1 minor! You will pass too.

Good luck.

Tim

Re: Failed again :-(

Hi again,

Took my little Fiesta (Twyla wink) out for a spin yesterday evening so got my first solo out of the way!  big_smile

Was thinking about my last test, I sat this in my own car. The first three tests (in a car with dual control) I was never asked to do an emergency stop, but when I sat it in mine I was, and only about two min into the test. I'm wondering if he was making sure I could stop the car if needed! Lol

Anyway, am now eagerly awaiting the arrival of my shiny pink licence...... big_smile
