Things don’t always go to plan… my driving journey has proven this true, too many times! If you’re not up to date with my story, then you should go and watch the previous video in which I, unfortunately, did not pass my first driving test attempt. Alas! I refused to give up. I kept practicing my driving skills with a second attempt booked a few weeks after. However, an incredibly early start, an injured back and a very frustrated Kimberley turned everything upside-down, making a second attempt into a third attempt, which is hopefully my last. Watch on to find out what happens… but there is a bit of a giveaway in the photo above!

'For me, driving means freedom. I passed my test a year ago and so I’ve been enjoying getting where I want, when I want. I’m now 18, so having my own car has given me a lot more independence: I no longer have to rely on the taxi of mum and dad!'  See more posts by Kimberley
