How to pass the driving test with ease.
It’s cool to drive your own car that is if you’ve never driven on your own. Getting the driving licence is not the reward one would assume but rather to satisfy your legal obligations to drive that car. Having ones own car is what motivates most of us to go and learn to drive a car. The rewards of having your own driving licence and driving your own car are tremendously exhilarating.
It is true that a ones own family and friends become ecstatic when a learner driver passes their driving test. It is always a positive outcome when a test is passed. Any positive outcome benefits not only the learner driver who has done well but also those whom she/he comes in contact with. To do well in a driving test you’ll needs lots of practical driving lessons in all kinds of traffic conditions.
120 Hours of Driving Lessons
Here in Victoria you’ll need at-least 120 hours of supervised driving lessons and at-least 10 of those hours during night time to get you ready for your driving test. You’ll become a good driver as you practice driving daily on a regular basis. To develop your driving skills you need to give lots of attention to the environment you’re driving in. Your awareness needs to be developed and increased to a level where your hazard perception skills are strengthened to a degree where the hazard perception test just becomes a formality.
The importance of a Driving Instructor
It is also equally important that you take driving lessons from people who have abundant road knowledge together with clear teaching abilities to pass that knowledge onto you. A good teacher can only educate those students who are willing to learn, and vice-versa.
It is very also necessary that you go for your driving test with a driving instructor. At-least your last dozen or so driving lessons should be with a driving instructor to insure you benefit from the accumulated knowledge they possess not only about the driving lessons but also about the driving test itself.
Enroll with a driving instructor who has the test route knowledge and is willing to share with you the necessary skills required to educate and help you to pass the driving test.
When should you schedule your driving test?
This will be evident when you are confident in your driving abilities. You are driving and keeping up with the rest of the traffic. It is also necessary to be certain and honestly self analyze your own readiness. Your driving instructor will also have a response and give you the green light to go for your driving test. Leave the last decision to your driving instructor as to when to book your driving test. If they think you’re ready then expect that and book your driving test.
What to do during the driving test.
Treat it like any other driving lesson but with a atmosphere of confidence and calmness. We at Rahma Driving School expect our students who are going for the driving test to have a good rest the day before and have enough sleep the night prior to the test. You should not worry how you will do, Just be yourself and do not try to impress anyone with anything. Drive as expected like any other day.
Having a good breakfast.
Do not attempt your driving test without having a good breakfast. It’s all about keeping your body in control. Some people can get themselves all stressed out because of poor diet. Also, bring along a bottle of water just in case you need to hydrate.
Arrive Early Prior To Your Driving Test.
Arrive early and be at the testing office half hour before the drive test. You don’t want to rush at the last few minutes. This would be very bad and stressful for everyone concerned with the driving test.
Be Positive During The Driving Test.
Leave out all negative thoughts. It has been proven that negative thoughts can create make you fail the test. Be in an atmosphere of positivity and stay calm.
You’re nearly there getting your driver’s licence.
Turn off your phone and imagine passing your driving test. On this day wear comfortable clothing and shoes for driving which means avoiding high heals or thongs. If you’ve calm, ready and happy then you’re almost there.
Good luck in your driving test!
Learn to drive at the roundabout with
Rahma Driving School Melbourne!
You will come across quite a few roundabouts driving in Melbourne and for that matter in most large cities in the world. Personally, I find roundabouts a great way of letting traffic flow steadily without too much of a hold up. Unlike traffic lights, one does not need to stop and wait for any traffic signals to move through.
When entering a roundabout be sure to decide which direction you need to go and have a good idea because some roundabouts can be complex an require one to move into a lane that is designed to meets the requirements of the area in question. Roundabouts are designed to address the local area traffic needs.
The most important rule after knowing where you’re heading is to give way to all vehicles already in the roundabout that are approaching from the right. It is like a T intersection and one really needs to give way to the right.
As always, take care to observe vehicles of all sizes, especially motor cycles that can move fairly quickly. When there’s a safe gap in the traffic and if you think you have more than enough time to make your way through then proceed to enter the roundabout. We should emphasize here that roundabouts are a hazard situation and your hazard perception skills need be always on high alert.
Use your signals to indicate the direction you will be going. The only exception is when you’re heading straight through without any minor turns on the roundabout. If you’re turning to the right or left then you need to indicate before you enter the roundabout and maintain the signal until you’ve turned into that direction.
Roundabouts are intersections that control traffic and allow that traffic to flow in all directions without too much waiting. In Australia all roundabouts are clockwise flowing. We stick to the round left of the island in the middle. The island in the middle of the roundabout is designed and is not part of the roadway for vehicles to travel over.
The video below is made for the UK drivers and is equally valid here in Australia too. There are much more tips in the video to help you with your driving skills at roundabouts.
In Australia we have road signs that help drivers have the best road experiences in the world. There will be roundabout signs way before you approach one. Those signs are designed to help motorist in their decision making. So, choose the lane that will be best suited for your traveling path.
Learning to drive through and around a roundabout requires a new special skill in ones driving knowledge. It requires lots of practice when early in ones driving life. If you’re a learner driver then it is very important that you take many driving lessons to learn to drive through roundabouts. These driving skills come very handy in avoiding road hazards in your future.
