Driving tests are without a doubt one of the most stressful things a teenager does. There is the pressure of not failing and being ridiculed by your friends. Couple that with the fact that driving is flat out nerve racking for teenagers in Canada.
That’s why I Wanted to give you Some Tips to help you get through your Driving Test
Most people don’t know this, but there’s a written portion of the driver’s test. Your local DMV will have booklets to help you study. You can also go to the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia’s website for the booklet and practice tests. In BC, a learner’s license is called a class 7. If you take the written portion of the test lightly and fail, you’ll have to wait before you can take the test again. You’ll also be out the testing fee. Get a friend or parent to help you study and have them quiz you over the rules of the road so you know that you’re prepared for the test.
In BC once you pass your written exam, you’ll get a learner’s permit or have some sort of driver’s education before you can take the actual road test. Your learners permit allows you to operate a motor vehicle, but accompanied by one adult only. It is suggested that you sign up for a beginner driving course and in-vehicle lessons with an excellent and experienced Westshore Driving School like Westshore Driving School. You’ll learn from experts who know everything you need to know to become a safe and skillful driver so you can successfully pass your driving test.
After your lessons the key will be to practice, practice and practice again. It’s all about getting comfortable and applying the lessons you learnt. Have a friend or a family member that is really calm behind the wheel teaching you how to drive. People who feel calm on the road and in traffic, will help you stay calm while learning how to drive.
Make sure you practice in all sorts of driving scenarios and road conditions. You’ll need to learn how to drive on the highway, freeway, in busy traffic, at night, in the rain and in any other scenario you can think of before you will be feeling confident behind the wheel.
Also, be sure to practice your parking, especially parallel parking. Once 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? I doubt that you have paid attention to those types of things like parking perfectly. But if you have, have them help you learn how to park.
In the end, it’s all about remaining calm and staying focused on the road ahead. Do not feel like you have to prove anything on the road. Driving is about getting from point A to point B safely, nothing more.
