Tommorow morning at 8:20, is my driving test. I'm pretty nervous. I'd quite like to hear any advice, or any tips to calm my nerves.

Also, straight after my test, I'm going to college to pick up my A-level results.

What's the worst that could happen?

Other than driving into a petrol tanker and dieing in a blazing conflagration of agony?

It's easy.

As long as you (or someone else) don't drop a bollock... Like going through a red light when the test is nearly finished >_>

damn dude, that's a big day for you

i would say try and get as much sleep as possible, not only so you don't think about it as much but so you're well rested and thinking clearly for the test.

heres some advice:

when parrallel parking take your time and what ever you do, do not hit the cones or the curb. you can try as many times as it takes as long as you dont hit them.

also stop before the stop sign and then ease out.

and use your turn signal

good luck.

Find your states DMV's website and look at the scoring sheet! I don't know if its the same everywhere, but mine was on the back of the application paper.

Try not to make a deal out of the A-Level results now, I know that sounds daft, but you have already done the tests and exams for them so concentrate on the driving test.

Try not to overthink anything during the test and pay attention to every sign you see, unlike me who failed my first test for not noticing a 20mph zone sign and driving at 30, then leaving my signal on during my turn in the road...

Mate, the worst thing that happens is you fail the driving test, you can always take it again, it doesn't mean the end of your life if you don't past first time.

Good luck!

The driving test was waaay easier than I thought it would be. You wouldn't be doing it if your instructor didn't think you were ready for it. So just go out and pretend its a regular driving lesson. You'll do fine! Good luck.

The fire brigade are about to cut your near-lifeless, charred husk of a body out of the car. All activity stops, as the guy in charge walks up to you and says "since your eyes melted, and your fingers have been burned off, you won't be able to read your exam results, even if you knew braille. So I'm going to tell you them. *clears throat* Chemistry - D"
At this point, you just go into the light.

Kinda. You need to do it slowly so you don't go up onto the curb. If you're going slowly, and bump against it, put it into first, go forward, and go back again at a better angle. I hit the curb twice in my parallel park and only got a minor, it's if the actual wheel goes up on it you're fecked

Just try to relax and treat it like a regular drive. The examiner isn't going to ask you to do anything you haven't already done driving around before. Also, when you pull up to a stop to make a turn, stop before the crosswalk, look left and right to be sure there are no pedestrians, and THEN pull forward to check for traffic. They get a lot of people on that because they go right into the crosswalk without stopping.
#16
i kind of thought the driving test was a joke. i passed the written test the first time but just by barely, and the driving test i got a 98 and only because i turned my wheels the wrong way on a uphill park. its super easy as long as you use your common sense... all though common sense isn't always that common haha.
#18
no worries man. It's easier than you think. Just stay cool. Once you're driving, you'll be calm. Maybe a bit nervous at first and towards the end. Good luck.

Hmmm, in Cali we dont even have to test on parallel parking. Actually, my driving test was less than 3 minutes. LOOK COMFORTABLE...If you don't know what you are doing, LOOK LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING HAHA.

I drove down the street, around the block, and right back into the parking lot and passed. When you make a lane change, look over your shoulder and make sure the instructor is looking over your shoulder...they like to not pay attention when you look over your shoulder and only see you make the lane change..and then mark you down for not looking before making a lane change..go figure!!

Stay calm...dont be like me and make sure you check your brake lights and signals before going..my pops and I were in a damn rainy storm at autozone looking like nascar pit crews changing out the bulb to one of the brake lights lmao...you should be good bro..just dont be nervous cuz they'll prolly notice that.

When you arrive at the test centre, knock your rear view mirror out of place, then when the instructor gets into the car with you, you have to fix it, and make a good impression

where im from you can touch the curb parallel parking but not go over. just let off the brake so the car goes but its not enough to go over the curb dont hit the gas just roll back incase you feel your tire hit the curb.
