Good luck mate. If I end up not making a pilot I was thinking of going into coach driving or something of that nature.

Won't your work allow you two hours to go and do the test?

I work in the City so it'll be more like a half day. The company I work for definitely won't allow that, definitely definitely not.

Agreed, captain_flynn! (I know what it's like to be up to the eyeballs in work... :-? LME, it's just one more hurdle we have to get over, or shoot them...)

And GOOD LUCK for when you do YOUR test, me boy!!!! Look, you WILL pass - if anything goes wrong, I'll go round to your examiner's house and - ahem - reason with him... :oops: :P . Ok?

(C_F - I'm flying next May, ok? I'm NOT getting a coach next May! get my drift??? :P )

I failed my driving test on Wednesday morning. I knew I had though before I got back to the test centre. So in the end I just chatted to my examiner as he was an ex RAF aircraft engineer. We got on great, too bad he couldn't pass me on my test..lol

Oh dear...

Well, not many people pass on their first time! As long as you know what you did wrong, and where you can try again :)

Yeah, i'm fine about it. I'm not too worried because 1) I knew I had failed, so I obviously know where I went wrong 2) I now know what the experience is like and will feel better next time.

I've only got to wait until January 2nd. So not too long.

Just be cool and calm. Do what you've been taught to do and it should go smoothly. The most important thing is to be calm.

once again congratulations captain, on passing your driving test!! I agree it is all about being calm and not letting your nerves get the better of you!! They are trying to make it harder and harder to pass these things and the government are once again looking at ways to make the driving tests harder. They are thinking of introducing a system that is used in sweden where you have to have 50 hours worth of lessons before you can book your test, which i think is ridiculous becaus ei only had 30. Also I think it is a way for them to make more money. Anyway rant over!! well done and good luck to all learner drivers!
