We share your goal of wanting to prepare for your test in double quick time because we don’t want you to have to pay for a single lesson that is not needed and to help speed up your progress, we have drawn up our list of the 5 best ways to prepare for your test quickly.
No. 1 – Get Your Provisional Licence Application In Early
Nothing can slow your progress quicker than not being prepared and the very first thing that you need to do is obtain your provisional licence. Despite the fact that you are not eligible for a provisional licence until you are 17 years old; many people are unaware of the fact that you can actually submit your application two months before your 17th birthday. So as soon as the date arrives, get you application in to the DVLA asap.
No. 2 – Study the Theory Test
You do not have to wait until you start your lessons to study for your theory test and the moment you are in possession of your provisional licence, you will be eligible to take the Theory Test.
This test can often be a roadblock that slows things down for learner drivers but studying early can actually help with your lessons and as it will teach you rules of the road before you even get behind the wheel of a car.
No. 3 – Take More Lessons
Reducing the gap between lessons can often prove to be essential when learning to drive so if you are taking one lesson a week and feel as though you would like to speed things up, try increasing the number of lessons that you take each week.
No. 4 – Practice As Much As Possible
This should never be used a substitute for driving lessons but during periods when you are not learning to drive with an instructor, your provisional licence will allow you to have a car insured to use as a learner. If you have someone to accompany you that is over 21 and has a minimum of three years driving experience, you will be able to practice things that you have learned during lessons.
No. 5 – Find Out Waiting Times For The Practical Test
Few things can be more frustrating that feeling as though you are fully prepared for your test, only to find that the first available date for your driving test is weeks away.
For this reason it will plan to think ahead by keeping in regular contract with your local test centre to see what the waiting list is like currently.
