If it's a 30mph speed limit then do 30mph and if it's 40mph aim for 40mph but you can aim for 37 or 38mph.


Don't forget to either your theory/hazard test or practical test with your provisional so when you come to renew it the parish hall can see you are active.


Please let the me know if you want me to listen to the debrief after the driving test. After your test then please let the examiner know that you would like me to listen it too. Just say "Can my instructor listen?" I can be then wait around the car for the examiner to call me. Only applies if you fail the test. 


If you pass your test in Jesey you can't exchange your Jersey License for a Spanish one and Italy are going the same way.


DVS times are changing and to DVSA standards in a major upgrade.


Make sure A/C is switched on when the examiner is sitting in the car.


Take each part of the test as a mini test. Give each part of the test 100%

Eye contact when they are giving directions.

The examiner will always judge your test to the road and traffic conditions it all depends on the suituation. If your safe thats all the examiner wants. 


Crossing your arms is ok as long it's. not escessive. It's not a fault if you do it.


You have 3 attempts to read a number plate, so make sure your eyesight is in good order.


At reversing bays you be about 8 inches from the kerbs it's not a problem at all.

If you hit the kerb and ask to correct it that's fine, if you pull forward and go back around thats's fine and if you want to pull forward by a few feet/meters that's also fine too. It's up to you.

Just avoid forward/back movements too many times.
