4 Tips to Help You Do Well on Your Driving Test
The anticipation of an upcoming driving test is enough to make even the most confident drivers feel a little nervous. The good news is that passing the test and earning your driver's licence is entirely within your control. Just follow these 4 tips and you are guaranteed to do well.
1. Practice, Practice, Practice
Good driving, like any other skill, takes a lot of practice. Practice with a good friend or relative who you know is safe and experienced behind the wheel, and invest your time and money in professional lessons as well. Feeling comfortable in the driver's seat is an absolute must if you want to pass your driving test.
2. Use a Car You Are Comfortable In
Try to get as much practice as you can driving the car that you intend to use during your exam. Every car handles a little differently, and you don't want to be caught off guard on test day in an unfamiliar vehicle, especially if you plan on driving manual transmission.
3. Familiarize Yourself with the Testing Area
Driving tests are often conducted on the roads in the immediate vicinity of your chosen testing centre. Once you book your test, it is a great idea to spend some time driving around these roads and familiarizing yourself with the area. Take note of road hazards, speed limits, playground zones, and any other important road signs.
4. Fix Your Bad Driving Habits before the Test
Before taking your driving test it is important to recognize and drop some of the bad driving habits that keep people from passing. These habits include but are certainly not limited to: not having your hands at 10 and 2, failing to shoulder check, speeding, following too closely behind other cars, and not coming to a full stop at stop signs. Fix your bad habits before test day and you'll have no problem getting your license.
