Practical Test Day

The day of the practical test is nerve-wracking for most. Here are Britannia’s top tips for your test day.

– When booking your test: choose a date and time suitable for you, choose the test centre you’d prefer (your Britannia instructor will be able to advise you on test centres).

– Get plenty of rest the night before: don’t think about your test, relax and take your mind off driving. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep.

– Before the test: Make sure you eat a good breakfast beforehand, remember your documents and leave early so you don’t have to rush.

– Relax: It’s normal to be nervous on your test day, it is important to not let the nerves affect your driving. Keep calm and just think of the examiner as your instructor; examiners are not there to fail you.

– Confidence: Your instructor would not have allowed you to go on test if they didn’t think you were ready; this means that you clearly have a good chance of passing. If you make a mistake, don’t dwell on it and don’t assume you’ve failed – you are allowed 15 minor faults. Most fails happen when the learner thinks they have failed when they haven’t, lose concentration and make a silly error.

Follow these tips and good luck from Britannia!
