I’ve been revising for my Theory test by completing lots of the example tests from the official CD. Over the last week I’ve been consistently scoring 33 out of 35 and then looking up about the 2 I get wrong. Only once in the past week have I managed to fail, 28/35 on a test I had loads that I hadn’t seen before. I was fairly confident heading over to Southgate.
First few questions go by, no problem, recognized them… then a few started popping up which I hadn’t seen and I began to worry. Anyway I plodded on, making educated guesses where necessary. There were perhaps 6-8 I really wasn’t sure about and by the time the Hazard Perception started I had convinced myself there was no point as I’d screwed up the first part.
I continued through the perception test, using the ‘3 click when you see a hazard’ method and felt it wasn’t really too difficult.
On coming out, they handed me a printout, pretty much straight away. The fist thing I noticed was it had a certificate inside the folded sheets On opening it out and reading the result, I got 34/35 and 59/75
Only thing that can stop me on the 29th now is a forgotten indicator cancellation or the dreaded U turn
well done!.. one thing that nearly got me on my practical was riding too slow, make sure you know the limits where you are riding and drive at that speed, if its a 30 drive 30, and so on, got 8 minors for being slow (driving 35 in a 40)
I remember the thing I was worried about the most was the u turn. When the time came, it had started to pee it down, my examiner was too busy putting on his rain suit at the side of the road to look at what I was doing, luckily though, I managed it without putting a foot wrong
