Drive like a grandma!

If you are not sure when to make a turn, wait until you are sure.

If you are nervous you would tend to make mistake, I would suggest getting a driving instructor give you a mock test if you really really nervous. Rest is all on your being calm and following the rules and the examiner.

Be calm u can do it.

Hey K.D.

Remember me from Interview Waiting thread?....Good to see you getting on with life in US... I don't have anything new to say except, just practice and don't panic during test time. It's quite normal to get nervous during test time... Just remember, no one is going to judge you wrongly if you fail..... There is always a next time.... My hubby also makes mistakes during turns, specially left turns...

In terms of passing the test, I always tell him, you don't have to get things right at 1st try in everything you do... Like you, he also passed the knowledge (permit) test in 1st try and he is determined to do the same with road test... I've tried to tell him that it's not uncommon for people to go for road test for 2nd or 3rd time... Some people here has given great suggestion, like driving like grandma, and if you get confused about turns, wait till you understand or ask the instructor again, etc..

Good Luck with the test..

All the best on your 2nd attempt!

I just got my EAD and looking forward to get my permit soon. The last time I drove, back in my country, was like the day of my driving test, 12 years ago since I always had someone to drive me around! So I am kinda rusty and nervous. With driving the other side of the road is not helping at all. LOL.. And my husband is too cheap to hire me an instructor and told me that he will drive with me instead (Oh dear!)

Anyways........ stay calm and everything is going to work out fine! Cheers...

Just relax, drive slowly, and try to practice the one or two skills that you need to improve upon (based on the 1st test). I actually grew up right near where you took your road test and failed my first driving test there at age 16 for driving a bit too fast on the test course. It can happen to anyone and it's usually just nerves that can betray you.

Best of luck on your next attempt and drive really slowly near the Livingston Campus there (the speed limit changes from like 45mph down to 25mph and the cops are always waiting there).

The test in Trenton used to be on a closed course - not the actual road. If it's the track test and not a road test, just take it slow and easy. Stay within the lines - that used to be a BIG thing they would look for to fail people - people used to driving on the roads tend to take the track faster than they should.

Worst case, take some time and take private driving lessons. It will boost your confidence!
