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