Am I Ready for my Driving Test ?
A question I'm often asked ........
Ask yourself instead, 'Am I ready to drive on my OWN ?", without the extra experience, eyes, reactions, opinions, guidance, PEDALS and safety net of an accompanying driver be it your instructor, parent, friend or partner!! THAT’S when you go for your test, when all the decisions are YOURS.
You go to test purely to get a rubber stamp from an examiner that says you and your instructor made the right decision. A good standard of driving is something you should be doing naturally well ALL the time not just for a day to get through a test. The test itself, in comparison to reality, is nothing like the pressure of being out on the road on your own. If you can't handle the test pressure then how will you cope on your own? It's as simple as that. Naturally there will be extra ‘butterflies’ but if you feel swamped and can't feel that test as just being another lesson or drive, THEN DONT GO IN FOR IT TILL YOU DO.
