that sucks man, sorry to hear.
I think ash may be right about some possible bad habits, when I was doing my lessons 3yrs ago I'd sit in 3rd gear a lot because I would cruise in 3rd on the bike, took a bit to break that habit.
its too bad the idea in the UK is "to teach just enough to pass", so if you do a perfect drive in a lesson, then replicate it on the test then you can't fail, sure explains why there is so many idiots on the road doesn't it?
I went to school with a guy who passed his test at 17 at 1pm, then the car was a write off by 3pm the same day. the UK standard doesn't make you a good driver unfortunately, it just gives people the idea that they now own the road because of that little pink card.
I hope you get it sorted soon mate.
P.S. try to find an examiner thats also a biker, I lucked out with my examiner, she rode a bike & it was winter, so I laid it on thick about using a bike in winter being too much risk for me, 2 minor faults lol. (sorry, that wont help right now)
