I have been in this field of driving since long, so you can say that I have seen people panicking on the driving test examination day, like any other typical exam few people fail and others pass. But things turn out to be different when one of my pupil drives under pressure and is unable to give its 100%.
First of all as the driving test day comes near, do make sure that you sleep well and meditate. Practicing deep breathing and other stress management exercises for having a healthy and sound mind, making driving perform well to the finest level.
Many drivers think that learning driving is a simple and easy thing, as according to many of their close friends, they passed it with great ease. While it is not the case, only if the home work is performed well in past, only then you can succeed. For this purpose PRACTICE driving for good since the time your first lesson starts.
For your first driving lesson do make sure that you go in a quiet, traffic-less place, where you can learn the basics for better. Because it has been my experience that the greatly quiet place the driving learner goes, for its first driving lesson, the more are the chances of becoming a confident driver, so do try this. In addition to this, the maneuvers can also be practiced well at a quiet place. At this stage I recommend learner drivers to ask as many questions as possible. Because not many people realize, but a technique working for one driving learner does not necessarily work for other, so if you have difficulty in implementing a driving technique, tell your instructor openly. A good driving instructor generally knows multiple techniques for a single maneuver.
Aside from this, knowing routes is the best thing a driving learner should do, to pass driving test well in later stage. Many instructors only focus on making their driving learner familiar with the test routes places only, but as we all know, that driving skills are continually required even after passing of driving test. So rather than focusing only on ways to pass at the initial stage of learning to drive, think long-term.
Hence, if you have done your in-class and on-road home work well, no matter if it’s see and tell or hazard perception test you as driver will pass the overall driving test with flying colors.
