Just say the letter never arrived. That way its not your fault. But remember to take your driving license with you obviously. Good luck.

Carmella, you don't need it...you can stop panicking!!

I had my test last week (I failed! ) and all I was asked for was the 2 parts of my licence.

P.S - If you have bus lanes on your test routes check the usage times and if you can use them, use them...this is what I failed my test for!!

Good Luck

Carmella...sorry to hear that. Hope your going to rebook?

I'm not a nervous person at all and in my lesson beforehand with my instructor we were laughing and joking and had the radio playing etc but as soon as the examiner got in the car I could not stop by left leg from shaking!!!! Bloody nerves!!!

I never got asked for my theory certificate either, I assume since its all on a database they can check prior to your test.

3 weeks to go until my next!!!!!

I second Rescue Remedy (you can get it in the chemist/supermarket/herbal shops). It certainly passed my test for me first time - without it I would have been an absolute bag of nerves and NEVER would have passed!

Just be wary of how much you put on your tongue though. It tastes like neat brandy because of the high volume of alcohol in it and I honestly cannot remember any part of my test whatsoever! I can assure you I was not drunk(!) but it does relax you that much that you totally forget what you've just done once you finish the route. I guess it's because you haven't got all the nervy-moments to cling on to!

I remember offering some rescue remedy to one of my classmates before he had to do a presentation at uni. He took the pipette out and swigged half the bottle. He lost his vision by the end of the 10 mins!

I use Rescue Remedy pastilles - easier to control the dosage.

I'm sorry to hear you failed, I had my 3rd Test yesterday, and thankfully I passed.

Don't get too downhearted at failing, In a way I am pleased that i failed my first test, the experience I gained in the since June (my first test) is probably more useful to the experience I had from the year before.

Good Luck next time
