"I took a Driving Test 3 years ago in a different town. When I moved to a new location and started a new job, I decided it was time to think about re-taking this test and booking some lessons.  Although I felt I could drive, taking the Driving Test gave me such anxiety that I didn't feel I could achieve my dream.
