Many people find it easy remembering facts and figures, so they may pass their driving test more easily, whilst others are by nature more practical as remembering any long details is more tedious for them. So, whatever your approach may be, here are some essential tips to help any learner drivers pass with flying colours:
(1.) In order to boost your memory, you can use your mental associations by creating visual associations and making lists. For example: for every road rule attached a visual picture to it such as a mental snapshot of a scene where the application of the rule has been initiated. And then imagine yourself taking the right action for every traffic sign.
(2.) Repetition is the key be used. On the driving test day you’ll really hail all the work you put in such as practising manoeuvres and repeatedly going over the theory information.
(3.) Study with a friend not with many friends who can disrupt you. A study shows a person learns faster with a good study buddy. So, you better team up with a friend and then test each other with many relevant questions and some tricky scenarios which are very possible to come out in the test. Because if what you have studied won’t likely be included in the test, then you’ll just be wasting your efforts.
(4.) Observe other motorists driving. So, to test yourself about the real-life scenarios, think of what you should have done if you had been the person behind the wheel.
(5.) Use some relaxation techniques. Many people worry that their minds might go blank during their driving test. But remember that if you start to panic, the best thing you have to do is focus on your breathing. Most people, when they were scared or nervous, they forget to breathe. So, take three deep breaths slowly. This lowers adrenaline levels, calms the body, and relaxes any tense muscles.
6. Don’t pile on any pressure. Keep in perspective the driving tests. Remember that it’s not yet the end of the world if you fail or couldn’t do something right on the tests because you can take them again in some other time at your convenience.
7. Deal with your stress. Never let your stress drive you out from your path to success. If you can feel that panic is creeping over you, slow down to avoid stress. Simply focus on the road ahead. Take a deep breath and tell yourself you really can do it. This is positive thinking that will create you to be truly successful.
8. Get a good night’s sleep before taking your driving test. Being tired due to lack of sleep can really affect your driving and your memory to recall anything essential that you’ve studied to pass your test.
9. Listen hard to your examiner. Have focus on what your examiner is saying and never be afraid to ask him/her to repeat an instruction if you’re not sure of what he/she means.
10. Think positively at all times during the test. How you actually think in certain situation could directly affect your behaviour. So have a picture of yourself driving a car confidently and smoothly. Remember that every day thousands if not millions of people across the globe pass their driving tests, so think positive that if they were able to succeed, you too can be successful.
