Pass Your Driving Test: Ten Top Tips

  1. Don’t assume the cheapest lessons are the best.
    Concentrate on getting great value for your money. You should get a discount for block booking. Ask about offers on post-test tuition for motorway driving.
  2. Check out how long a ‘lesson’ really is.
    Some driving schools offer lessons that are less than an hour long, or pick up and drop off other pupils on your lesson time.
  3. Make sure your instructor is fully qualified Driving Instructor.
    S/he must have the necessary qualifications to teach you to drive.
  4. Check that the car you’ll drive has dual controls and is in good condition.
    Is there a spare car available in case of breakdown?
  5. Check that the instructor can help with your theory test.
    Maybe buy a good theory book or CD-ROM to help you practise.
  6. Make sure your instructor keeps a record of your progress and follows the official syllabus.
  7. Apply for your theory test as soon as you start your lessons.
  8. Agree with your instructor when to apply for your practical test.
  9. Take at least an hour a week, preferably two, of regular lessons with a qualified instructor.
    They will advise you on how much tuition you should need.
  10. Make sure your tuition car is available for a final lesson immediately before your test. Source
