Mod 2 struggles, Tips?

Hey all. Had 2 years on cbt riding every day come rain, shine, snow or ice, took the plunge 2 months ago and started going about getting a proper license.
Managed to pass Mod 1 no minors 2nd time round (locked rear wheel on emergency stop 1st go). Managed to fail Mod 2 twice now and wondering if it might be time for more lessons? (although the school I'm with assure me there is no need). 1st Mod 2 I failed with one serious fault and no minors for turning nearside to nearside with an oncoming vehicle (both of us turning to our corresponding right) at a traffic lighted crossroad. My instructor asked me to take him to the junction after I failed and was surprised the examiner failed me on it as the road was wide enough to safely turn that way. Second Mod 2 I racked up 5 minors for undue hesitation, stopping at give way signs (in pouring rain) to get a view of each road I was crossing. I was more annoyed second time as I wasn't going to go blasting across a road I had no view of till the last minute and would negotiate any give way sign the same way again on a test or not. Anyways, this is an essay now. Do I need more lessons or shall I go buy a pushbike? Plus, going on holiday with the missus to italy in 2 months and not holding any hope of passing before then. Can I hire a scooter in Italy without a full license? TA!
