Can you check if my sentences to turn into indirect speech are possible?

He invited me to...
2) “Shall I phone Mary for you?” said Bill.
He offered to
3) “If I were you, I’d leave tomorrow morning”, he said.
He adivised me to..
4) “Remember to switch off the light”, he said 5) “What about making pizza for dinner”,he said.
He reminded me to....
5) “I won’t drive you to the beach”, she said.
7) “Come in and shut the door!”, she said.
8) “OK. It was me who broke the vase”, she said.
9) “Ok, I’ll drive you to the airport”, she said.
10) Why don’t we go to the seaside for the weekend?, he said. 11) “Congratulations for passing your driving test”, Peter said to me.
