Dreading the day of your driver license test? You’re not alone. Stress is one of the leading causes of failure. As a matter of fact; approximately fifty percent of those who take a road test fails the first time around. This is actually thought to be due to a combination of nerves and lack of knowledge. Wondering what is the best way to combat that? To gain as much knowledge as you can of course! Going into your test with the confidence that you know exactly what is required of you will make the dreaded test day a lot easier and guarantee that you pass.
Getting practice is only a small part of the battle because if you are practicing without knowing the right way to do it just means wasted time. You need to focus on what will be expected of you during your driver license test. Along with practicing technique and mastering the practical skills, you will need to be diligent about safety since that is the most important part of driving. Your tester will not only be grading you on how well you can back your car up but also on what measures you take to ensure that you are doing it safely.
Not sure how you can show your tester that you are being safe? By making sure you turn to check your blind spot when needed and by using your mirrors often and properly. As well, things like not following too closely and avoiding abrupt stops will also work in your favor. Show your tester that you are aware of your surroundings and that you are being a defensive driver and trying to anticipate the moves of other drivers by leaving a space cushion all around you and never just assuming that a car will turn into the proper lane. These little things will play a huge roll in helping you pass your test.
