Making the decision to learn to drive is a big and exciting step in anyone’s life. Driving is a valuable skill that brings with it many positive opportunities. Freedom awaits you, but first, you have to pass your test! We understand that the lead up to your first driving lesson can be nerve-wracking. So, we’ve put together a list of things to do before the first lesson. Just take a look…
1. Get your provisional license
It may seem obvious, but your provisional license is your key to learning to drive. Without it, you cannot legally get behind the wheel of your instructor’s car. Make sure you have applied for it with plenty of time. You will need to show it to your driving instructor on your first lesson, so it’s essential. You’ll need to show your license before your theory and practical tests too.
2. Book driving lessons at the right time
Driving requires full concentration and a clear mind. When you book your driving lessons be sure to choose times that are right for you. If you function better in the mornings, choose earlier times in the day. If you’re not fully awake until the afternoon, go later. Most instructors will offer times throughout the day and it’s important to get it right.
3. Choose an outfit
It may not have crossed your mind, but it’s worth considering your driving ‘outfit’. Being comfortable is essential so that you are not distracted on the road. This includes wearing appropriate, comfortable shoes. You won’t want to be too hot or too cold. You should also consider whether you’ll need to wear glasses, sunglasses or a cap.
4. Ask questions
Begin your driving lessons with confidence by asking any questions before you start. When you contact Retro Driving School, we fully encourage you to ask as many questions as you need. Our professional instructors are here to help and will gladly answer any questions.
