I am over the moon. I have diagnosed anxiety and I've always really struggled with my nerves but I had my first test this morning and I PASSED! I only got four minors and I am SO CHUFFED.

DP is at work so I'm having a mini-celebration on my own!

Congratulations! Are you doing a little victory dance right now?

deepestdarkestperu Fri 20-Oct-17 11:10:31

I kinda am - so maybe it's a good thing DP isn't home right now grin

Congratulations!!

Well done. I remember that I was so nervous when I took mine. DD's boyfriend is taking his right now. I hope he passes.

Good show deepest. It took me FIVE attempts but I made it in the end.

Thank you! I'm so relieved, I was shaking when I got in the car but my examiner was REALLY nice and I somehow managed to stay completely calm throughout.

When he told me I'd passed, I made a weird squeaking noise and my instructor just looked at me...blush

Huge congrats!! I'm working on mine at the moment and know how hard it is, I'm a bag of nerves too. Really inspired by this thread smile go treat yourself!!

Great news! Glad you managed to stay calm. Hope you celebrate tonight.

Congratulations OP! star I'd love to learn to drive. Would save myself a fortune! 🚗

My mum is treating me to a champagne lunch in a bit! I booked the day off work and DP is working until 4, so I'll celebrate with him later too grin

Good luck to everyone who has tests coming up!

Congratulations! Seeing a lot of passes about at the moment.
I have mine on Tuesday and already feeling sick with nerves.

Congratulations flowers

Nothing like having your own independence smile

Good luck @highmaintenancefemalestuff! I'm sure you'll be fine smile

It went SO quickly, I couldn't believe it. I was only driving for about half an hour and before I knew it I was back at the test centre. Mine ended with a bay park, then he asked me to switch the engine off and told me I'd passed!

Hopefully you'll get a nice examiner. Mine was lovely and really calming to sit in a car with, even if he was silent most of the time!

The boyfriend passed his as well. Must be a good day for passing. Good luck to everyone yet to take their tests.
