How many tries does it take to pass a driving test?

How many tries does it take most people to pass their driving test? I know that I’m only allowed three tries on my test and I’m really nervous that I won’t pass.

You might also be required to retake the written portion of the test or wait for a certain period of time to pass before you’re allowed another attempt.
