It’s not unusual to experience a few bumps along the way to getting your licence. All of us will experience our fair share of ropey lessons, of course. Meanwhile, statistically, more than half of us will fail a test at least once. As they say, though, “the harder the struggle, the greater the reward”. Persevere, and the feeling when you finally pass will be incredible. One person who certainly knows how that feels is Victoria. She’d already spent plenty of time...

Perhaps your driving test will fly by. It might seem like no time has passed at all between meeting your examiner and parking up at the end. Or maybe it’ll drag, as you slow-breathe your way through each skill and manoeuvre. However it may feel on the day, examiners make sure that all practical tests are, so far as possible, equal. That means equal in difficulty, equal in how they’re marked, and also equal in terms of length. Your test,...
