Are you preparing yourself for the open road? Every student who starts learning to drive cannot wait to pass their test and then start driving on their own. As driving instructors in Liverpool, we have helped thousands of learner drivers pass their test.
Below is part of our on-going series of blog posts which feature tips for learning to drive, how to pass your test and general helpful hints that you'll find useful as a new driver.
1. A lot of nerves can spring from a lack of knowledge so one of the ways to combat your nerves is to learn more about the car that you're driving. Finding someone who can teach you about the inner workings of the car will help you understand the processes and mechanics of how the various controls of the car work, making you feel more at ease.
2. Frequent lessons. Like anything, the more you do something the more familiar you become with it and the more relaxed you feel. Similar to the point above, the more you understand things the more confident (and less nervous) you will be. In particular, if there are certain areas of driving that make you feel more nervous than others, driving on a dual carriageway for example, then book a two-hour lesson and taking a longer drive on a local dual carriageway will give you a chance to settle in and enjoy the experience.
3. Mistakes are ok. Remind yourself that making mistakes is normal and actually one of the best ways to learn. Often, if we do not do something wrong, then we do not experience it and our driving instructor cannot correct us. Each time a mistake is made, a lesson is learned and you will know for next time so embrace the learning opportunity and don't beat yourself up!
