What To Do To Pass Your Driving Test The First Time
If you’re a learner drive and you’ve had your Ls for a while, you may be ready to take your drive test and get your Ps. But you may be anxious – and looking for driving test tips that will help you with passing your test on the first try.
It’s natural to be nervous, and to be worried about passing your driving test the first time. So in this guide, we’ll discuss a few tips you can use on your big day to pass on your first go.
1. Use A Familiar Car
Whether you have your own car or you’ll be using your driving instructor’s car, make sure you have experience driving the vehicle, and know how to operate all of its most important functions.
2. Practice Driving On Test Routes Near The Service NSW Centre
We highly recommend that you practice driving near the test centre where you’ll take your driving test. If you’ve practised driving on routes near the centre, you’ll learn more about what to expect when it’s time for your big day.
3. Pay Attention To Your Blind Spots
Check your mirrors and blind spots whenever you merge, change lanes, or make any other manoeuvers. Failing to check blind spots is a very common reason that points are taken off during the driving test. Also, always remember to perform an observation check after you’ve been stopped at a traffic light.
4. Try To Stay Relaxed
We know it can be intimidating to be in the car with a testing officer, but do your best to relax and treat your test like any other driving lesson. Nervousness and anxiety will only lead to more mistakes!
5. Signal Properly
You must signal for at least 5 seconds before you leave a parking space or a kerb, and should signal for several seconds when changing lanes or making a left or right turn while your vehicle is in motion.
6. Stop Completely At Stop Signs
Failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign and “rolling through” can result in major deductions. Always come to a full and complete stop at every stop sign.
7. Choose Gaps Wisely
Safely judging gaps in traffic requires time and experience. Trust what you’ve learned during your training, and do your best to choose gaps safely. Don’t be indecisive, though. If you take too long to turn, you could have points deducted during your test.
