    Driving Test Tomorrow Afternoon...

    I actually feel very confident that I'm going to pass, I just hope to god the traffic isn't busy and the drivers out there make that 30 minutes so much easier!

    Been looking at cars to get along with insurance and got my eye on an 05 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Petrol (Hatchback) - its one of the newish models/shapes. Got a quote for £600 off comparethemarket which I'm guessing is a bug but gonna see if the company honour it.

    Look well and turn your head so he/she sees that you are looking.

    I failed my first 2 tests on observation so please be obvious when looking.

    Good luck!!!

    hopefully doing mine next month as passed my theory at the weekend and just going to hammer the lessons and double up to get me to test standard

    Good luck

    I passed almost a year ago, and have a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 (older than the one you have your eye on) insurance is just under £600 with Admiral

    it does help that the car isnt a boy racer type car

    Citroen saxo's and such, fiesta's all bad to insure for first timers, go for the old fuddy duddy specials

    Bad advice, you would be insulting the experience/ intelligence of your Driving Examiner, not a good idea.

    Just drive normally.

    Cheers everyone.

    Just having my morning coffee and I have to say I feel pretty relaxed, very confident in my driving so it should be no problem. Just hoping it's not something silly that lets me down.

    Done my theory test for my motorcycle this morning, got 47/50 on the theory and 60/75 for the hazard perception. 10 minutes ago the DVD from the DSA on how to do the test just came through the post, bit bloody late!

    Luckily I had done the theory before for my car, back then I got 34 and it was out of 35 questions.

    I pushed my way into traffic during rush hour got a major fault for it :lol: what a waste of money that test was :roll:

    how did you do? i passed just over 2 weeks ago and got my car on saturday. i was so nervous on the morning. if i hadnt passed i dont think i could have handled going in for another test. its a fantastic feeling when they say youve passed

    good luck to anyone else who will be taking tests in the near future too!

    congrats on passing! i started blubbing like a baby when she said id done it as i was convinced id failed. up until the test i was so stressed and nervous, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

    ive got myself a fiesta st, bit ambitious for a first car but ive wanted one for over a year so wasnt going to settle for anything else. you got a car yet then or got your eye on one?

    I thought I'd failed too Luckily the examiner was busy chatting away and missed the fact I went through a red light :roll: Haven't got a car yet. Looking to get a Fiesta too, if not then a corsa.

    Cheers everyone....

    A quick question...when I'm out and about looking for a car tomorrow, how am I supposed to check the insurance on them? I don't suppose there's an iPhone app for comparethemarket or confused.com is there?
