Wow the UK tests you guys on reversing around corners? The American road test is much easier.. oh well.
Congrats dude_se on passing the written exam!

It is easier...sometimes to easy I think, I had a friend from a small town in south georgia and their whole road test consisted of leaving the DMV parking lot and taking a right turn onto the towns main road, going down the road and taking a right at the stop light, going down the road and taking a right at the stop sign and a final right turn back into the DMV parking lot

so in short, 4 right turns...that's all it was and he passed

Practical is ok aslong as you keep your cool, it took me 2 times to pass my test and I failed on the first one cause a taxi was up my arse on a roundabout..

Usualy all the examiners put you at ease anyway so you should be ok good luck!!!
