Driving test day and you are nervous?

Nervousness is the big reason for failure. Nearly everyone gets nervous and stressed out on their test day no matter how well prepare they are. It is generally observed that people who are cool and calm also get worried as the driving test day get nearer and their nervousness get worse.

People get nervous about taking their test because :

  • Fear of failure
  • Pressure from friends/family
  • Lack of preparation
  • Previous test failure(s)
  • Self-doubts and lack of confidence in your driving

Things to remember while appearing for the test :

  • Practice and practice and practice - The main reason of failure in a test is lack of preparation and practice. So don't rush into taking your driving test unless and until you're properly prepared and confident about your preparation.
  • Before appearing for the test at least once have a mock driving test with your instructor.
  • Book test in the early morning time slot - This will give you less time to worry about it.
  • Do not spread the news - Don't tell your friends and other people that you've booked your driving test . This will build the extra stress of trying to live up to your friends and others expectations. Letting your parents know will do as they will give you all the support you want.
  • Avoid listening to 'failure stories'. This would make you more nervous. Just focus on your performance.
  • Think positive about your driving test . Thinking can build an actual difference to overcoming driving test nerves
  • It's ok if you make mistake - Your mistake could be minor driving fault, wont necessary fail you in test. If you make a mistake, keep calm and focus on your driving.
  • Believe in yourself - Be confident in your own abilities.
  • Don't panic - Say to yourself in your head 'I CAN do this test'.
  • Don't take medicines to calm your nerves.
  • One day before your test get a good rest.
  • Don't drink too much coffee, tea and fizzy drinks; the caffeine will 'hype' you and make your thinking less clear.
  • Revise in mind - Perform coordinated tasks by imagining doing them, by practicing in your head.
  • Perspective - Overall, remember that although exams are important, they are not the be all and end all. You can always re-take the test.
