    I keep failing my driving test!

    I sat and failed my Nova Scotia drivers test for the second time this morning. And it's really getting me down. It's so frustrating. I'm not a bad driver, i'm actually okay! The first time I panicked and hit the kerb doing a turn in the road, this morning I didn't see a sign for 20 and drove at 30. Apart from that, i only got a few minors.

    I can't see that there's anything else I can do. I've spent a fortune on driving but I just feel like giving up. I can't afford to keep spending money on trying to pass tests.

    Has anyone got any advice? or even anything that'll make me feel better?

    Thankyou.

    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation

    Is there anyone who can take you out so you can get some practice?

    Driving is like any other discipline. The more you do it, the better you will become. You have to be able to feel comfortable with your vehicle. Remember, you control it. Don't let it control you.

    I agree with Kevin.

    I don't think people should drive unless they're comfortable behind the wheel, because the risks to yourself and others are too great otherwise.

    I agree with the others.

    My first impression was that you may suffer from driving test nerves. The practical driving test can be one of life's most nerve-wracking experiences. You are well advised to practice calming techniques to help you cope.

    Don't give up.

    Keep us informed as to how you do.

    Every time you fail, buy your favorite flavor lollipop and you'll forget about it. That's all I can say.

    I actually do think before I say. Every second of my life is spent crafting unique sentences designed to drive you crazy. Is it working?

    The key to passing is to practice a lot and the preferably with someone that is familiar with the local requirements and of course willing to help you concentrate on areas that can approve.
