Here are a few facts about the driving test that you might not know which you should bear in mind on the day.
1. You don't have to talk if you don't want to. If you think that talking to the examiner will not help your concentration during the driving test, politely let the examiner know that you'd prefer if they didn't make conversation with you during the test.
2. You are in control of the car, and are not being supervised! Contrary to what many learners may believe, the examiner is not supervising you during the driving test, thus if you are driving your own private car you MIGHT not be insured unless you have specifically cleared it with your insurance company that you are going on a driving test.
3. You can stop the car if you are not comfortable, or need to take a quick breather during the driving test. If you find out that your seat/mirror is not properly adjusted or that your driving test nerves are getting the best of you, it is acceptable for you to stop the car on the left (you of course will use SCALP to select the spot). Just explain to the examiner why you stopped, and as long as you stopped safely and moved off safely, you won't be penalised. You can't take a 5 minute break though!
5. The examiner might not remember you from a previous test. Many learners remember who they had their last test with, but the examiner conducts so many tests that they don't remember everyone, so unless you did something extra ordinary like physically assault them or crash the car, they would not remember you. So if you are having another attempt a the driving test, treat it as if it were your first.
