Getting rid of your L plates will be one of the most monumental moments you experience in life. Of course, before you can do this you have to pass your driving test and you can make this easier by listening to sound expert advice from a DSA Approved Driving School. To help get you up to test standard as quickly as possible, we suggest you prepare for your driving lessons by doing the following.

Feel confident with your driving instructor

You need to have total confidence in the driving instructor you choose to teach you how to drive. If you can establish a strong bond with your instructor and feel at ease when they teach you during driving lessons, this is going to make things so much easier for you.  You’ll know if you like your instructor or not, and will also know if they are the ideal person to teach you how to drive. If you’re not feeling the chemistry for whatever reason, it might be a good idea to make a switch and this way, everything should click into place.

Listen and don’t take things personally

When you learn how to drive you are going to make mistakes, it’s how you respond to these errors that make you a better driver. There’s no point in dwelling on individual errors, just learn from them, and aim to improve so you don’t make the same mistakes twice. Your driving instructor is there to guide you and correct any slip-ups you might have behind the wheel, listen to them and be open to constructive advice.

Dress appropriately

Whilst you might think you look amazing as you learn to drive in seven-inch stilettos, are they really that comfortable? More importantly, are they safe to learn to drive in or could they be hazardous as you operate the individual foot pedals? Dress comfortably as a learner driver and wear appropriate footwear with a nice flat sole so you can feel what’s happening through your feet.

Be patient

Learning to drive is a gradual process, so don’t try to rush through your driving lessons. Sure, you’ll pass your test quicker if you take weekly crash courses, but take each day as it comes and gradually pick up the skills you need to become a competent driver. By adding to your skills and breaking the learning down into manageable chunks, you will soon reach test standards.  Your instructor will know when you are ready to take your test so listen to what they have to say and be guided by their advice.

Take a Pass Plus Course

Passing your driving test is a massive accomplishment but this is only the beginning of your journey. Once you acquire a full driving licence you gradually improve on the skills, experience and knowledge you need to become a confident driver.
