Hi mummies. I am need some help, advice, tips regarding driving test. I am due to have my driving test tomorrow and my nerves is cracking me now. I am 6 months pregnant and been driving for a while now. I didn't get any instructor as I learned to drive when I was 18 yrs old but different on how it is here. I am practising with my DH every weekend. I was used to left hand drive and no roundabouts. I am quite unsure if how to wear seatbelt when pregnant? My blind spot, eg. If u pull the car on the left which side is the blind spot? Any tips will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance 😊 xx

I think you really need some proper driving lessons as well as practice ones with your husband. A professional instructor will be able to teach you the correct rules of the road.

Belt should be under bump not across it. Blind spot is the bit just out of your peripheral vision that causes you to turn your head to see if anything is there. You will have a blind spot at both sides

I agree you should have had a few lessons with a proper instructor too so you know what the examiner is looking for

Could also be worth verbaling that you know you should look round further for reversing / 3 point turns but are using you mirrors as that isn't physically possible, so attempt to look round even if its just for show.

I'm all for supporting posters, but seriously, if you don't know what the blind spot is you shouldn't be on the road. Postpone your test and get some proper lessons!

thanks all for your thoughts. Apparently I haven't got enough time to re schedule or cancel my driving test as my theory expires June.
Update, I did my driving test, failed sad I've got 10 faults plus serious fault. I might consider attending a driving lesson maybe after giving birth.

Hi OP, I had been driving for 10 years in Canada before moving here and still needed to take several driving lessons before doing a UK test. A lot of the stuff they look for is opposite to the Canadian test, so I had to unlearn those habits and learn new ones. Just book a few lessons and redo the test.

please book a course of driving lessons, not just one. You'll get there but you need proper teaching.
