A few weeks ago, i got a date for my driving test.
It’s 10 days away now.. when i thought about it and looked through all the forum questions and sites packed with information on it, i began to get a little hot under the collar. I haven’t taken a lesson in about 9 months Although i’ve lessons booked for next week.
But then i came to my senses and said, ‘hang on a second, i CAN drive, and i’ve been driving safely for almost a year with no problems’ 🙄 All of this information just hypes the test up and puts you inder false pressure imo.. have a look at the marking sheet – what a load of rubbish.
looking at that, you’d think, oh flip, there’s about 100 different areas i can be marked down on. In reality there’s about 5 big areas and the rest is all common sense or common driving sense.
If i was mentally weak, i’d crack up looking at these websites and the amount of questions and answers on them.. i’d be a bag of nerves for the test and probably fail. It’s no wonder we have a 50% failure rate here..
But being as laid back as i am, nerves won’t come into it. I’ll just treat it as another trip around town with a tonne of semtex in the passengers seat 😆 I’m not going to sit here and tell you i’m all nervous and don’t expect to pass and bla bla – i don’t play that sly card where secretly i expect to pass but i’ll tell everyone i think i’ll fail just to lower expectations. That’s a cowardly way of doing things and certainly not my style.
I’m telling you now, i expect to pass as the test is too easy. If i fail, big deal, i won’t be the last. I’ll continue driving either way 😛
