Driving lessons Halifax handy tips for the day of your practical test
1. Use relaxation techniques
If you start to panic, focus on your breathing (most of us forget to breathe when we're nervous or scared). Take three slow deep breaths – this will calm the body, lower adrenaline levels and relax any tense muscles.
2. Deal with stress
Don't let stress drive you. If you feel panic creeping over you, slow down, take a deep breath, tell yourself you can do it and simply focus on the road ahead.
3. Listen hard
Focus on what the examiner says and don't be afraid to ask them to repeat an instruction if you're unsure of what they mean.
4. Don't pile on the pressure
Keep the tests in perspective. It's not the end of the world if you do something wrong or even fail. You can take them again.
5. Think positively at all times
How we think directly affects our behaviour, so picture yourself driving smoothly and confidently. Remember, thousands of people across the world pass their driving test every day – you can too!
Hopefully these tips help to calm your nerves on the big day. Put in the practice and don't panic – just make sure you're prepared. Good luck!
