Take a step back. There are lots of things you can do yourself before you start to drive on our public roads.
When you’re in a car observe road signage and markings; try to anticipate what’s going to happen next; look out for pedestrians, cyclists, children and animals.
Learn to be observant as a passenger, it will help you when you become a driver
Ready to go
This for some is the most difficult part. You’ve got your provisional licence and your driving lessons are booked. You’re full of nerves and excitement. Take your time and relax.
You may not get the hang of clutch control straight away but it will come – millions have done it before you.
Practice the Theory Code. If you’re not sure of something, tell your instructor and ask questions. Most of all enjoy the experience.
The key is to relax and enjoy your driving experience
Here at last
89% of Approach School of Motoring’s students pass first time.
Theory Test – You’ve got to do this first. 50 multiple choice questions based on the Highway Code. You’ll need to get 43 or more correct.
Hazard Perception Test – 14 video clips of everyday road situations containing 15 hazards to identify. Spot the hazard early for maximum points. You need to score at least 44 points.
Practical Test – Have a driving lesson for an hour before your test. The examiner will test your eyesight so don’t forget your glasses if you need them. The examiner will also ask some vehicle safety questions.
Out on the road you’ll be expected to demonstrate that you can drive safely in a number of situations. You’ll be asked to reverse, stop in an emergency situation, followdirections and traffic signs.
You have got to this point through your own abilities (and of course our excellent tutoring) don’t get all wound up and nervous. Relax, be confident in your abilities as we are confident in you. We wouldn’t have said you were ready if you weren’t.
