Failed Your Driving test ?
Why is the failure rate so high, you might well ask?
Driving Standards Agency has published a list giving the top ten reasons for the Practical Test failures, and not surprisingly, every manoeuvre features on this list. However, the majority of candidates who fail do so because of lack of planning. You may be physically able to drive to a high standard, but this is not near enough to guarantee a driving test pass.
Being able to drive is one thing, you have to have an awareness of what’s happening around you, and to act appropriately. However, this is where the problems usually arise during the driving test, because nerves play such a large part on how you are able to perform on the day of your test. So many people say after their test: ‘but I never do that normally!’ Which is usually the case.
A recent survey showed that over half of the people questioned thought that they would fail their test because of ‘doing something silly’ on the day that they wouldn’t normally do on a driving lesson. Furthermore, ninety percent believed that their negative thoughts and resulting nerves would have an impact on their driving test results. Everyone is different so confidence is KEY!
