Learning to drive is a great experience. It can be scary and some people become overwhelmed as there are lots of things to consider - traffic laws, the various controls of the car, learning to change gears, keeping an eye on the road, the theory test... it's a lot for anyone.
As a learner driver, it is quite common to find yourself worrying and feeling those nerve-wracking moments leading up to your driving lessons and your driving test as well.
However, we are here to help. If you are about to start your driving lessons in Liverpool, our series of blog posts will help you learn more about driving lessons, what to expect from your test and some general tips on studying and staying calm. These tips are provided by our experienced driving instructors and they will help you bid adios to your worries and help you pass your test like an ace.
One of the most important tips every student can use is simple yet effective and it is to practice, a lot. While this may seem obvious, it is important to practise every aspect of your driving and ensure that the skills you are learning stick. Remember, you're not just having lessons so that you can pass your test; you are learning skills that will last you a life time. The better you become now, whilst you have the chance to practise every week, the better a driver you will be for the rest of your life.
Keep taking deep breaths and enjoy your driving lessons. We realise there are lots of things going on and you are anxious but your driving instructor is there with you and will be making sure you're driving safely. Try to enjoy your lessons, soak up as much knowledge as possible and if you are concerned about anything, just ask. Remember, our instructors are professional teachers and there's no such thing as a stupid question.
Your instructor will guide you through every aspect of the skills that you will need to know but if you are worried and would like to practise any manoeuvres again, just let them know. Everyone has different areas that they struggle with or are not sure about so if you need extra time working on your reverse parking or three-point turns, just let your driving instructor know.
