Get ready to take your driving test

On the DirectGov website, the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) state;

“Those who pass their driving test have had, on average, about 45 hours of professional training combined with 22 hours of private practice… Learners who prepare this way, with a combination of plenty of professional training and plenty of practice, do better in the test”

“Recent surveys indicate that nine in ten learners who passed both theory and practical tests first time were taught by an instructor.”

“It is important to learn safe driving practice from the beginning of your driving career because bad habits are hard to break…It is unlikely that anyone except an approved driving instructor (ADI) would have the experience, knowledge and training to teach you properly. Learning safe driving habits from the start will improve the safety of yourself and other road users.”

Professional driving tuition is the most effective way to make sure that you are fully prepared to take your Practical Driving Test

An important part of the structured learning process is practicing what you have learned during your driving lessons.

If you are having private practice with a friend or family member, get together with your instructor and the person who will be helping you to practice in order to discuss the best ways of helping you to learn to drive and avoid the passing on of bad habits or conflicting ideas.

In addition there are a wide selection of driving test books, software and DVDs which can help reinforce the skills you learn during your driving lessons.
