Can I take the practical test in my own car?
My instructors car had these cool mirrors on the left hand side, which were angled down towards the gutter. Perfect parrallel park.
It really calmed me down before the test having a double lesson to “get into the zone” and practice all of the parking manueovres correctly.
The only reason a person should go with their instructor is to feel more comfortable if you have been driving that car mostly. Its best to do the drive test in a car you are familiar with and have done a 3 point turn AND reverse park in. It makes no difference to the testing officer if the instructor is there, it does not influence the test in any way!
