How to prepare for your G drivers test

October 9th, 2012  |  Auto Insurance

While passing your G1 written drivers test is a very exciting time for most teenagers, true freedom as a driver does not occur until you pass your G road test and get your full license.

While most people feel prepared for their G drivers test, the truth is that once you complete your driver training course and start to drive on your own most teens forget some of what they have learned and develop a number of bad driving habits. Often it is these habits that cause drivers to fail their driving test.

To ensure that you stay on track and don’t lose sight of the tips and strategies that will help you be a safe and effective driver, it is a good idea to review what you have learned and take a few refresher lessons to ensure you are properly prepared for your test.

The following are some effective ways to prepare for your driver’s test:

  • Book your test well in advance: Booking your G test well in advance will allow you to properly prepare and practice any skills that you need to work on and improve.

  • Re read your drivers handbook: Re read your drivers handbook. This will be a great refresher when it comes to street signs, laws, and situational driving knowledge when you are on the road during your test.

  • Familiarize yourself with the test area: As part of your preparation, take a trip down to the driving test facility and familiarize yourself with the area. Drive around and make note of any tricky speed changes, traffic patterns and anything else that may creep up during the test.

  • Take a few extra lessons: Contact your driving instructor and take a few driving lessons before your road test to serve as a refresher. Many driving schools also offer refresher programs to help get you ready for your road test.

  • Practice: Practice makes perfect, right? The only way that you will be fully prepared is to practice and work on the driving skills that you need to improve.

Preparing for your driving test is just like any other test. Review your driver’s handbook and drive on a consistent basis and you build the confidence and skill needed to pass your G driving test.
