        • Not really, cos i practiced sat nav stuff quite a bit with my instructor

          just go into your test like you don't care about passing and treat it like a driving lesson

          just drive... naturally

          it goes by really quickly

          im good driver maybe idk but i passed manual, first time, in one of the centres with the worst pass rates in the country

          but i dont have a car still

          i dont think i can drive tbh but theres only one way to truly find out... that is to take to the road

          in fact, i almost crashed into a bus during my test

          so i dont know why i passed but there you go

          lady was too nice

          • Oh... 

            Not sure what you can do, apart from practise like crazy.

            • yehh i never learned reverse around the corner

              the manoevres these days are not too bad

              in my test, i had to do parallel parking

              was good, i perfected the park first time, but it was slow and laborious process

              but when i was pulling out after parking, i think i got a minor cos i was too close to the car in front

              so i should have reversed a lil bit before pulling out but no biggie

                The last time I had my test the man was really nice and he gave me an easy manouvere and overlooked a lot of my mistakes but then I made a big error so he had to fail me

                  I made 2 big errors but lady passed me. When i almost crashed into the bus, i thought i failed, that was 5 mins into the test

                  even when i explained my faults to my instructor after doing the test, he agreed with me that i shouldnt have passed

                  i was doing 20mph below the speed limit cos i misread a 50mph sign as 30mph. That should have been dangerous/serious

                  but what can you do

                  i am not the examiner

                      You said it yourself. Also don't hate your lessons lol. Just try and make everthing enjoyable..that way you'll learn and not stress about it..May Allah make it easy for you. Don't give up :)

                      • Uffff. All my problems in my life are due to me not being able to drive lol. Anyway, are places like AA driving school and BSM good? Are they worth it? I’m looking at lessons with them and it’s like £33 an hour for an auto. Compared to £25 elsewhere but is it worth it? I WILL have a driving licence by the end of this year beithnillahi ta aala

                        • I never use to drive...I depended on my husband for everything. I forced myself to learn. Alhamdulilah it's the best thing I ever did for myself. Now I don't need to depend on anyone to take me anywhere. I wish I did it sooner. I failed a few times but eventually passed. Alhamdulilah it's awesome!! I hate driving but boy it makes life with kids soooo much easier!

                          Do not give up. Keep going back until you pass because eventually you will. I spent a lot of money learning but it was worth it!

                            Those prices are too much. I did my lessons with AA at a rate of £20 per hour

                            I suggest looking for something better, maybe ask friends/family if they know of any instructors, this is one of the ways to reduce costs

                              Yeah sis my issue was that I depended on my ex husband for everything as he was a bit controlling & didn’t like me even going to the corner shop lol. And I have a bit of a phobia of buses and all my money is goinn in Uber’s. I have been learning on and off for ages but my problem is that I lack determination and I give up way too easily. I wish I had a character which was motivated. But I’ve been given a lump sum of £500 and I think it’s best I use it for driving so Insha allah this time I won’t give up!

                                Akhi, the prices here are minimum £25. I did think the AA prices were way too much but then I did a calculation & figured that if I have £500 as a minimum amount I can spend on driving, I can have 15 lessons with AA and if I use the cheaper instructor then I’ll have 20 lessons. So id rather miss out on 5 lessons but have a really good instructor

                                did you find the standard of driving with AA good?
