You want to pass your driving test, you want freedom and independence and so much more, but the question is…are you ready to pass?
Learning to drive is a journey, one that can be easier for some individuals than others. At the end of this journey lies the driving test, which serves as an assessment of your capabilities and confidence to drive independently. It is vital to be adequately prepared and ready for the test.
If a driving instructor says you’re not ready to take your driving test, listen to them. Driving instructors are specially trained road safety experts. They’ve got lots of driving experience – and they know what it takes to pass the driving test. Remember, they want you to be a safe driver. Taking your test when you are not ready can lead to negative consequences for both the instructor and the learner, disappointment, extra costs and delays. For these reasons if you book a course with us we strongly advise that you book sufficient hours in order to hopefully reach the test standard. We cannot guarantee that you will be ready for test at the end of your course, but we will teach you to the best of our abilities to try to become a safe driver for life.
How will I know if I am ready to take the test?
You’ll usually be ready to take your driving test when:
1. You do not need prompts from your driving instructor.
2. You do not make serious or dangerous mistakes when you’re driving.
3. You can do well on mock driving tests.
4. You have practised ways of managing your nerves.
5. Your driving instructor agrees you’re ready.
