Good luck mate.

Are there any points you feel you not happy with i.e. U-turn, emergency stop?

Just treat the test like a lesson and relax, it's amazing just how relaxed you are made to feel. If you think you have made an almight boo boo just forget it and carry on, you probably will be OK.

I found that my test was so much less stressful than my lessons.
If a made a slight mistake I was expecting to hear a bit of advice in my ear like in a lesson but it was silent
I actually rode the worst I ever rode since starting to ride a bike due to nerves and second guessing myself but passed very comfortably.
So my advice. Enjoy your 35 mins on the bike and you'll be fine.
Also it felt like it took 5 mins.

I did fine on the U-turns and emergency stop on my first DAS day but I don't want to get complacent and know it could be a lot different on the day. All i'm worried about is that it only takes one dodgy u-turn and that's it!.

Try not to over think about what you can do wrong, relax. If you find yourself getting uptight do as I do when I go round a bend I hate ......... sing LOL

They can't hear you ..... but don't nod your head to the beat LOL they will fail ya !
