Are Driving Tests Realistic?

As a learner driver, we are all aware how much pressure the impending driving test can put on you. With the theory revision, lessons with your instructor and private lessons combined, it can really be a stressful point in your life.

But how realistic is the driving test, really? Many argue that the strict test conditions do not in fact mimic real-life driving, and that this additional pressure is likely to cause the candidate to drive differently than they would normally, and that being less relaxed behind the wheel may possibly result in them making mistakes or errors they would not normally make when driving.

What are your thoughts on this? How realistic is the driving test?
