Taking Your Driving Test in Wolverhampton
For some people the first thing they ask when learning to drive is – ‘how soon can I take my test?’ Other people will want to feel totally competent before even thinking about what the driving test will entail. This shows that everyone learns in different ways and why Homers Driving School, Wolverhampton, will tailor a lesson plan to suit your style.
Driving Lessons, Wolverhampton – preparing you to pass
Firstly, you need to know what the practical test will be like.
It lasts for about 40 minutes, includes an eyesight check (for obvious reasons), some safety questions known as ‘show me, tell me’ questions‘ and then off you drive. Included is a ten minute ‘independent driving section’. So, what are the examiners looking for? Well, they want safe and confident drivers. That’s where driving lessons in your local area of Wolverhampton will help.
Passing the practical test is not just about being familiar with the test route and driving that same route week after week during your lesson. It’s about giving you the confidence to feel in control of the car in any situation – during the test and afterward.
Homers Driving School’s Wolverhampton team make learning to drive fun. We are familiar with the local test centres in Wolverhampton and the routes they use; and we have access to all the questions that might be asked of you with materials to help you learn it.
We have experience with extra nervous drivers and over confidant drivers and your Wolverhampton driving lessons will be tailored to progress you to test standard at a pace that is right for you.
Practical Help from Your Wolverhampton Driving School
There are a few things that you must do before you book your test. You need to have passed your driving theory test and you then have two years in which to pass the practical test.
Your driving school (Wolverhampton) instructor will have a personalised driver’s record for you to check that you are competent with all aspects of driving and you are up to ‘test standard’.
When your instructor can see that you are ready to take your driving test they will be able to advise on the best test centre to book with. Homers Driving School Wolverhampton has a few different test centres within close proximity. Your instructor will be familiar with the test waiting times at each and be able to suggest where to book.
Although it is impossible to simulate how you will actually feel on your test day your instructor will be able to set you ‘mock tests’ during your driving lessons in Wolverhampton so at least you’ll know what to expect. It will also give you an added confidence boost that you will pass the actual test.
What Can You Do?
If you have a friend or family member that is able to take you out in their insured car take advantage of that to get additional driving experience. Let your instructor know what you did and how you felt it went and they can add it to your driving record.
Make yourself familiar with road signs and markings. It may seem like it’s just revision for a test but those road signs give you a lot of helpful information.
When you’re on the independent driving section of your test following the instructions of the signs and markings correctly will ensure that your road positioning is good and that’s one less thing to worry about.
How Long Will it Take to Pass?
How long it will take you to pass your test will vary from person to person.
Whether you’re a complete beginner or just need a refresher…whether you’ve just turned seventeen or are more mature…whatever your personality…we can offer lessons to suit you. An intensive driving course or lessons to fit around your busy life.
