    Oh hun its been the bain of my life. I failed twice before years ago and only took it up again because of the fear of having to lug baby around on public transport. I convinced myself (and everyone) i would pass before my due date...

    WELL!... Test no 3 at 7 months went swimmingly all the way round untill i was literally a 2min drive away from the test centre and i had a total mind blank after seeing a speed sign, messed up a gear change without using mirrors to slow doen and subsequesntly got a "S" and failed. I was so mortified. The guy was apologetic as he gave me my fail papers *sob*

    Fourth time round, this time i thought i'd play it clever and not tell anyone i was taking my test - less pressure - and it'd be a nice surprise me bounding through the door... Er wrong! At 8 months i was not feeling so good, it was a hot day i was feeling a little flustered this time i got 5 mins into my first manouvre and didn't look left when doing a 3 point turn (THEE most obvious mistake!!) The woman grabbed the steering wheel (instant fail) so i asked to return to the test centre as i was not in the mood to continue and felt uncomfortable and flustered. The stupid cow made me continue. I was so fuming at the end i got out of the car and told her i didn't care about her evaluation!!

    So now i'm due in three weeks and wondering whether to bother giving it a final go??!!

    It has cost me an absolute fortune and i am FINE in lessons. Never crash, stall, mess up gears or mirrors. I'm just a total loser in tests.

    My OH teases me mercilessly about it, its soo embarrassing!!!

    I really really hope you have more luck than me and keep you nerve. Oh and just to let you know they do not care about your bump! I tried the pity vote lol.

    :dohh:

    Gotta laugh or i'd cry!

    Miss Yorkshire its got to the point now where i want to book back to back tests just in case! lol, unfortunately not possible ;) Its a numbers game now, the more i take the better the chances (weird logic!)

    Let us know how you get on.. :flower: and weirdly enough they never gave me emergency stops in the last two. Must be the individuals choice.

    I don't know if i could face one whilst overdue :dohh:

    i took it while pregnant and passed... yea it made life more difficult but it's so important to have this independence before baby comes. i'd hate to be home alone without a car and license once she's here.

    I passed my driving test when I was pregnant with my first.
    I think I was only about 4/5 months pregnant, but I was feeling so sick! I think it helped me knowing that I HAD to pass coz I didn't know when I would get another chance when baby came along. It made me a lot more focused and determined to practise and pass first time. I passed on 2nd January 2004, the year where it have snowed heavily all new year, I thought they were going to cancel on me too! That would have been bad!
    Good luck!

    I passed mine at 35 weeks pregnant with DD1!

    And he told me I didn't have to do emergancy stop because he didn't think it was safe with a bump :thumbup:

    Funny thing was this examiner had previously failed me twice (before being preg) & he asked me if that was my first test. I was like "no, you failed me twice :haha:"

    Anyway, GOOD LUCK!!

    PS. I highly recommend Rescue Remedy spray/drops (from Holland & barrett), I was a nervous wreck in my first 2 tests, always drove well in lessons, but fell apart in tests. I honestly believe the Rescue Remedy was what kept me calm & resulted in me passing :thumbup: Either that or the examiner just didn't want an emotional pregnant woman wacking him for failing her :haha:
