Confidence in Driving Skills

Do you think you would pass your driving test?

Studies have shown that most drivers who pass their tests are more confident that those who fail at first- suggesting that a there is a strong dependence on your own assumptions of your ability.

If you consider yourself to be a good driver, you are less likely to make mistakes, as you will be more likely to concentrate on your positive driving skills, whereas a nervous driver will be constantly thinking about potential mistakes they could make, leading to them being more likely to make said mistakes and therefore to fail their test.

Other than learner drivers preparing to take their tests, another study has shown that many legal drivers are still concerned about the level of their driving ability, with a large proportion being unsure that they would pass their test if they were to take it again.

What are your thoughts? Are you a good driver, or do you need a couple of refresher lessons?

Safe driving this weekend from Britannia!
