A driving test will test your pre-drive checklist, intersections, entering or backing along the curb, turns, parking lot driving, and lane changes.
Pre-drive checklist: you’ll have to demonstrate the emergency parking brake, windshield wipers, emergency flashers, turn signals, foot brake, arm signals, defroster, headlights, and horn.
Intersections: this includes your speed, traffic checks, limit lines, yields, and braking.
Turns: turns could go up to four rights and lefts which include signals, limit lines, speed, full stops, steering control, turning to the correct lane, etc.
Tips to pass your driving test the first time
Passing your driving test the first time Is possible but in order to achieve that, there are certain things you must do. In this guide, I’ll be introducing you to those things in the form of tips.
Tip 1: Be on time
Arriving earlier keeps your mind at rest and it relieves or helps you feel less nervous and more confident. Arriving late has a lot of implications that can result in you failing the test. The first thing coming late does to you is that, it could make you lose the exam and secondly, arriving late has a way of affecting people psychologically making them all worked up or tensed which can also result in you failing the exam. So the first thing to do if you intend to pass is to arrive early.
Tip 2: Have a driving lesson before taking the test
There is no better way to prepare yourself for the test than to have a driving lesson before the test starts. Why is this important? Having a driving lesson before taking the test is no different from reading before an exam. Both of them have a common goal which is preparing you for the coming test or exam. Additionally, taking lessons before the test time also boosts your confidence.
Tip 3: Ensure you have everything you’ll need
This is very crucial. Before going to take the test, create a checklist and ensure that everything you need to take the test has been checked on the list and you have them with you. Carrying everything you need is crucial because every year, there are hundreds of tests that are not carried out because the candidates failed to bring everything that was needed for the test. Ensure that you have all the required documents, your car is properly equipped, and it’s up to the test standard. If you need further professional help, maybe consider taking a Safer Driver Course.
