    minor mistakes include lack of observation in a manoeuvre or at a junction and not looking in your mirrors enough and excessive speed being in the wrong gear.

    major mistakes are if you get 3 or more minor mistakes in one category i.e observation or steering or if the examiner has to use the dual controls to stop the car for whatever reason or grab the steering wheel or do any thing in the test beond assesing you and issuing instructions.

    The common reasons vary from person to person and can range from nerves to making a silly mistake in the test that causes you to get marked down for it.

    The most common reason why people fail is lack of observation. You also have people who drive to quickly and people who drive too slowly.

    Then hesitation eg holding up traffic at an intersection because they are way too cautious, there are many other reasons why people make fail.

    Minor mistakes include not signalling, stalling the car, etc. There are too many to list.

    Minors can include - not signalling properly, hesitation.

    Major - if the examiner has to break for you.
