It’s completely normal to feel overcome with nerves on the morning of your driving test. In fact, even the most capable drivers will feel some degree of pressure as the exam nears closer. So what can you do to fight this? The best option is to make sure that you use your time wisely before the exam. With this in mind, here are four things you should do on the morning of your driving test.
Relax before your driving test
OK, this is easier said than done. Your best chance of relaxing will be to give yourself plenty of time to get prepared. This can mean getting up at a reasonable hour and not stressing out over silly things. For instance, why not choose your outfit the night before when you’re not racing against the clock? You’ll appreciate not having to worry about this on the morning of your exam. See what our former students are saying about passing their driving test- as it might help!
Never underestimate the power of a hearty breakfast. Yes, you might be so nervous that you’ve lost your appetite. But you should try to eat something because food will increase your concentration. If you choose to dodge a meal, you could find you feel sluggish and are easily distracted on your test.
Don’t forget to answer the call of nature in due time. While there will be an opportunity to do this at the test centre, the window to do so is fairly small. The last thing you want to do is annoy an examiner by leaving them waiting to start the test. So ensure you go to the loo in plenty of time.
Your driving instructor will strongly advise that you get some practice in before the exam. Think of it as a warm-up. You never know what information you might learn or what skill you might master in this precious time. If anything, this pre-session should give you a nice confidence boost before your test.
