So are there new requirements for tests now?

Funnily enough I've just bought Bach rescue remedy from the chemist

Yeah they are removing a couple of monouveres and adding a few new ones, they are going to be adding more rural driving so more twisty windy roads, and they will introduce the use of Sat nav. So I have a few things that I'll need to get to grips with.

I feel your pain. I failed my last test (my 2nd) with four major faults! I hate the tests. Trying to bring myself to start again. Good luck

Sorry you didn't pass hun. I hope that the Bach Rescue Remedy helps. I've used it in the past and it was quite useful with anxiety

I failed my test multiple times because of anxiety too- I get so nervous that I make the most ridiculous mistakes but I *know* I can drive. My test instructor even said it was a perfect drive if hadn’t made the silly mistakes (like too slow on a windy country road ). I gave it up when I was pregnant with my DD and I know it would be so much easier if I could drive now. Thinking about doing one of those crash courses that’s all condensed... don’t know if it’ll help though!

Good luck lovely xxx

I feel you!

What feels like forever ago... I failed 3 times when I did mine. I always had this cranky, older man, and I was sooo nervous! One time, after I had accidentally turned right on a red light when there was a "no turn on red" sign, he told me he thought the nearby state trooper was going to turn around and get us (I live in the USA so sorry if it's confusing! lol). What a nice thing to tell a nervous 15 year old.

Meanwhile, DH (my boyfriend at the time) had taken it with the same man and he passed first time, and the man was super talkative with DH and actually NICE to him. Felt like crap that day... Especially since DH speeds more and is more reckless overall. I'm pretty much a little old lady when it comes to driving. I rarely ever go over the speed limit.

Just try and get it over with. That's the best advice I can give. Once I passed (I went to another place and tested with someone else), I felt this huge relief that it was finally over with. Good luck to you!
