This is just a little post to say, I passed my driving test!
Some of you will know that I have been learning to drive and I recently failed my first test a few weeks ago. I was so frustrated with myself and felt like I was NEVER going to pass, it's such a horrible feeling! So I re booked straight away and have been a little quiet this past week, because I've been trying to keep a clear head and concentrate on passing and that, I did ahhh!! 
I just want to share my excitement and say, I will be back on track with blogging now that the test is out of the way and I can breathe again! So my first test, I was waaay too rushed and completely messed up, I couldn't even turn into a blimmin' road! I tried to turn right into a road, rushed, didn't look and went passed the point of turn, then ended up on the curb in the middle of the street, oh dear! I can safely say I deserved a fail with a big fat F on that one! 
So I rebooked as soon as I got in the door after my massive mess up. I was so frustrated with myself for being such an idiot! I have never done anything like that before, I couldn't believe I lost my cool so much in that split second. I felt like I was never ever going to pass after that, I just wasn't lucky enough. 
I then had my next lesson after failing and breezed it, what an annoyance! The next lesson wasn't so good according to my instructor, then my test came up quickly after another lesson or 2. I just thought to myself, 'You can do this, you're capable, you're safe, just keep a clear head and relax and don't over think!' So that's what I did, I tried to keep my cool and take it one step at a time.
I was very lucky to have a chatty outgoing examiner, he was a big guy with tats and that eased me a little because I could have a laugh with him, he was a big teddy bear!
I just wanted to tell you the good news and apologies for the lack of activity lately and I shall be back now hopefully! Also if you're learning to drive/taking your test, don't give up you will get there! Just keep calm, relax and be safe and you'll breeze it.Good luck!

I'd love to read your driving test experiences.

  4. Oh my god! Well done! You did exactly the same as I did. I couldn't believe it when I passed. I sat there in disbelief while the grumpy man gave me a grilling about my (three!) minors, and I kept asking "So, you're sure I passed?" until he confirmed like 5 times. It was only a few months ago for me, and I'm 28, bit late hey! Are you getting a car, or are you driving someone else's? I can't decide what to do.... xxx

    1. Thank you!:) It still doesn't feel real and I've been driving everyday since haha! I already had a car whilst I was learning but I never drove it. Then the day after I passed I drove and it felt soooooo different and weird, I'm only just starting to get used to it a week on. I'd get your own if it's possible, just so you have your freedom xx
