Congrats. To me the written part was easy. I got nervous about the driving part, but it really wasn't that bad at all. I don't know about the UK, but here where I live, we have a little road course you go on, so you don't even go out on the streets. But not even the whole US is like that. It goes from region to region.

In the UK driving test, hitting the kerb is seen as not having full control of the vehicle, usually in the 3 pt turn, or reversing round the corner.

However I have mates that have hit the kerb, and just continued their test and still passed. Don't worry about because if you do focus on that, then it increases your chances of it actually happening.

i dont think ive even hit the curb yet. driving is starting to feel real natural. i just went on some random road for 30 mins and was talking to my dad the whole way. i hopefully shouldnt have any problems. i mean i can do reversing fine, hill starts, 3 pt turns and stuff so there cant be much more to learn
