I've got my road test tomorrow.

I normally would be excited except I failed the same test twice already. The driving instructors there are incredibly picky and it's gotten to the point where I was failed for appearing uncomfortable around heavy traffic, when I did everything else right.

My parents can't drive me around anymore as they're really busy and I need a car to get to classes and cover some of my parents errands.

Any tips? I keep hearing the same thing over and over "don't be nervous" but on my last test this lady found a problem with every nuance of my driving. How the heck can I not be nervous? I'm screwed tomorrow.

Seriously though, anyone know what I can do?

you could've looked at the paper they gave you with all the mistakes you made and work on those... but the test is tomorrow so you're pretty much screwed

good luck, though

Yeah, you're pretty screwed.

Good luck, though.

Just hope that your instructor tomorrow isn't mental. You'll do fine. Drive like you know what you're doing (even if you don't), and you'll do fine!

Good luck!

if u get to a 4 way at the same time as the other person, person on the right goes 1st.... use turn signals EVERY time ur going to turn.... check ur blind spot before changing lanes.

thats all i can remember from drivers ed now. but when in doubt... try to seduce her/him.

Drugs? Alchohol? both are good to calm the nerves! Just no good for driving skills!

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

You're too nervous. Driving isn't a big deal. If you're not ready to drive in heavy traffic, don't get your license. The last thing needed on the street is a scared teenage driver.

that sucks

Unless you're sure she likes you, telling her you like her has a 110% chance of failing.

But hey, at least you have a 10% chance of absolutely guaranteeing failure.

Im gonna be doing the same thing in December. Im so jittery when Im driving with an instructor, but when Im driving alone, I perfectly fine. Luckly for me, the area I drive around has virtually no traffic, and passing it will be a breeze.

This thread doesn't make me feel much better about my roads test coming up in a few months.

I passed on my first try, easy as cake. Where did that term come from? What exactly about cake is so easy? Does it sleep around?

Oh, and I'm aware this does nothing to help you, but what can I do

Thanks for the posts, you either had good advice or made me laugh.

So update: I've been driving around the empty neighborhood for the last half hour. I can parallel park alright and do a double u turn. I also spent some time reading through the manual for right of way etc..

BTW i've been driving for nearly two years now and alot of people think I drive very well. I can do the maneuvers and know the rules, but I just mess up with an instructor.

I guess i'll let everyone know if I fail tomorrow...or pass (unlikely).

Fap. Actually it's a serious advice as it relieves stress and releases Endorphins, which in turn helps you to focus.

^ Wish you the best of luck.

I honestly didn't think I could make it but the instructor only marked me off for one thing. I couldn't believe it when she said i'd passed.

I guess that last minute driving I did at midnight helped.

Congrats.

Thanks.

Nice job. My road test is in a week..I still can't to stall parking properly!

I had to practice for about two days straight to get parallel parking right. I'm sure you'll be able to pick it up.

Good, I take full credentials and responsibility for your license.


Of course, if it wasn't for you guys in this thread....would I have passed???
