How To Pass Your Test First Time

This is the questions every learner driver wants the answer to and the answers is within the expectations of the driving examiner…what do they want? What are they looking for?

Well if you are thinking the driving examiner wants to see you are a safe driver then you are correct, but what defines driving safely? This is what we need to understand, and we are going to help you this right from the very first lesson so you become a natural driver.

You need to be an independent driver and in short that means you can do all the driving skills needed and you can spot mistakes and improve what you do. Everyday drivers make little mistakes and its about not making them again or correcting them.

So on your first and every lesson, you are going to do the following.

1. Be in control of the car at all times
2. Be able to spot hazards
3. You will obey the Highway Code
4. You will have the desire to drive safely

By using that 4 step approach you will be able to pass your driving test at the first attempt.

How to save over £500 on getting your driving licence

Actually, you can save much closer to £900 but let’s not brag.
There are 3 areas where you can look to save money and each area is worth around £300 to you.

1. Reducing the number of hours needed overall.
2. Eliminating private practice.
3. Passing your driving test first time.

The DVSA say that the average learner driver needs 47 hours of professional tuition, 20 hours of private practice and 2 driving tests.
But the average learner will be taking 1 hour a week as well as missing out on lessons and that creates you a problem.

Just for the moment imagine you are taking one hour a week of tuition, when it comes to the following week, how much have you remembered? Actually very little and a lot of your lesson, well be on a recap. Let’s just say 15 minutes is spent on going over what you did before. So for every 4 hours, you are wasting one hour.

Therefore with the average being 47 hours, it is fair to say you could be wasting 12 hours, and that a lot of cash. What you ought to do is have a lesson every 3 to 4 days and make it a two hour lesson. Overall you will save a lot of time and money.

By learning this way you will also avoid the need for private practice. Learners insuring a parents car can expect to pay £30 a week when you add up insurance and fuel. Over just a 3 month period that is a lot of cash. But you will not need to spend that if you take lessons as we suggest.

Finally, passing your driving test first time.
50% of people fail every day and it is mainly due to the fact they are not prepared and not ready. What we will do is take you through a four step process on every driving lesson so you are ready, and you are prepared.

1. You will be in control of the car
2. You will be spotting hazards and avoiding them
3. You will obey the Highway Code
4. You will want to drive with a safe attitude

Right from the very first driving lesson, you will be using this process, so when it comes to the test you will have all the opportunity of passing first time. It is exactly what the driving examiner is looking for.

How to get the best driving lessons in Colchester

To get the best driving lessons in Colchester you need to know what questions to ask when speaking to a driving school.

Most people just like yourself are unsure of what questions to ask so that you are able to determine quality, you have probably thought about pass rate, price and the car, but what else do you ask and why?

1. You have got to ask if the driving instructor is a trainee or fully qualified. That’s right, some instructors have not yet passed there test to teach you.

2. All instructors are graded they can have an A, B or a fail. So ask.

3. More importantly ask when the instructor was last graded and additional training have they taken to maintain and improve their level of skill and service.

Use these questions and you will soon find out who is right for you.
