Some Simple Effective Hints
Driving tests can be really stressful experiences. Here are some tips to help you get through your driving test and on the road!
First thing to remember is that there’s a written portion to the driver’s test. Your local registry or DMV have booklets to help you study. In Alberta, a learner’s license is called a class 7. You can also go online to the Government of Alberta website for the booklet and practice tests. Remember to not take the written portion of the test lightly, if you fail you’ll often have a waiting period before you can take the test again, and you’ll be out the testing fee. If you have a friend or parent to help you study, have them quiz you over the rules of the road, so you know that you’re prepared for the test.
Depending on where you live, you’ll usually have to get a learner’s permit or have some sort of driver’s education before you can take the test. Look on your local DMV’s web site to see what kind of steps are necessary in getting a license.
Next, sign up for a beginners driving course and in-vehicle lessons with an excellent and experienced driving school like Derek Brown’s Academy of Driving. You’ll learn from experts who know everything you need to know to become a safe and skillful driver and pass your your driving test with ease.
First start with experts, and then practice, practice, practice. In between classes get extra practice. Do you have a friend or a family member that is really calm behind the wheel? Have them teach you how to drive. People who feel calm and collected on the road and in traffic, will help you stay calm and collected in traffic.
Make sure to practice in all sorts of driving scenarios. You’ll need to learn how to drive on the highway, freeway, in busy traffic, at night, and in any other scenario you can think of before you’ll be confident on the road.
Remember to practice your parking. Here, again, it’s good to have a knowledgeable friend or family member help you out. Do you know someone that pulls into a parking spot perfect every time? Have them help you learn how to park.
Remember to remain calm about driving. If you need more practice to be calm and safe on the road, that is perfectly okay. Do not feel like you have to prove anything on the road. Driving is for getting from point A to point B safely, that is it.
