Ridiculous rule as you don't need headlights in day light

Best of luck for the test

You still need a car that meets all relevant regulations and the examiner is responsible if you haven't passed.

Make sure your seat belt will fit a fat person , a few years ago a test in a moggy minor was cancelled due to the seat belt not fitting the fat examiner

To the OP, are you learning to drive in the mini?

I’d be doing the test in whatever car your most familiar with. Have you been learning and taking lessons in your mini?

I passed my test in a Ford 100E Anglia, but that was in 1959!

My dad passed in a mini in the late 70s
