Yes, folks. There is another driving test after that one you took. This is now your practical exam. This is the test that you see in movies where the blonde girl is driving and the instructor is screaming for dear life. Kidding. This is the practical exam in where you will be graded on what you have learned during your lessons and theory exam.

Preparing for this exam is as vital as when you were preparing for the theory test. This is where you put in to action all the things you have learned. The guys at Andy1st Driving School gives students useful tips on how to pass this exam.

Preparation is the key that you will use to start driving.

Jumping in head first is never a good idea. Passing the theory test just got you one step closer to driving independently on the open road. Getting regular driving lessons leading up to your practical exam is always a good idea. It leaves you with fresh knowledge and makes you remember those oh-so-important things. It also gives you the feeling of confidence, just like that exact same feeling when you walk out of the house with fresh undies. As the old saying goes, “practice makes perfect”. Well, not exactly perfect but it’ll get you close enough. Practice tests are also a good way to prepare. Get someone to pose as the examiner, be it a relative or a family member. Just don’t get your friends to do it.


The time has come.

Ok, so judgement day has arrived. Make sure you’ve had plenty of rest. If ever there’s a party the previous night, skip it. You don’t want to go taking the test with a serious hangover, do you? Arrive at your test early. This will give you time to relax and go through everything there is you need to do. Remember to keep calm during the exam. Be focused and confident. Wear fresh undies and take a bath. Always think before doing anything rash and try to avoid going Vin Diesel while you’re at it. Remember that your every move is being watched, judged and graded. Everything you do will make or break the final outcome of the test. Make sure you are confident enough so that the examiner can see that you know what you are doing. Don’t be cocky. There’s a difference in being confident and being cocky. ALWAYS KEEP CALM. Never mind that guy who just cut your lane or that guy driving too slow in front of you. As much as possible, try to avoid road rage.

Passing the practical exam is a vital part in being ready to take on the world, in a car. Driving is a very big responsibility since you are putting not only your life but the lives of your passengers and pedestrians in your hands, and feet, and eyes. Always be alert when driving. There are a lot of unexpected instances that may happen so it’s never a bad idea to be prepared. Drive within your limits; never mind what you see in the movies, those guys are paid professionals. Always remember to drive smart and drive safe.
