Capping Off Your Driver Ed
Your driver ed is in good hands when you ask us to give you professional tuition. Our instructors are fully qualified, and they have the ability to pass on their considerable knowledge to you. You can rest assured that you'll learn from the very best when you learn from us. But there are a couple of things you can do to get an ever better education, and to give you more chance of passing those crucial theoretical and practical tests first time round – enrol in a defensive driving course and undergo a pre-test assessment. We can arrange both of these things for you.
Driver Ed to help you think defensive
As part of your driver education, you should seriously consider enrolling in a defensive driving course. In fact, don't consider it....do it! The most attractive feature of such a course for you is the reduction in the restricted licence period – by six months for drivers under the age of 25 and by three months for drivers over the age of 25. In the long term, however, you'll recognise the outstanding feature of a defensive driving course. You'll notice that you're a smarter driver, able to manage risk and avoid dangerous situations. As a tool to get your licence sooner, a defensive driving is great. As a way to become a safer motorist, and stay alive on our roads, it's even better.
Ready For Your Practical Test?
There's nothing worse than going into any test with that nagging feeling - “Am I fully prepared?” Those doubts can lead to anxiety and poor performance during the test itself, which often results in failure. As you continue your driver ed, and approach an all-important practical test, there is no need to have those doubts playing on your mind. All you have to so is book a pre-driving test assessment with us and find out exactly how your driver training is going. During this assessment, we'll cover all the aspects of the practical test you're about to take. We can do the assessment in the actual testing area, so you can familiarise yourself and know what to expect on testing day. We can point out bad habits you might have picked up while you've been learning under the supervision of a family member or friend. Finally, we can give you an honest assessment of where we think you're at as a learner driver. Being prepared is the key to succeeding in anything, therefore a pre-test assessment is one of the best ways to prepare for your practical driving test.
Learn As Much As You Can
Driver ed should involve more than doing just the bare basics. You get out what you put in, and if you're not prepared to learn as much as you can then you should be prepared to fail when it comes to the testing stage. A defensive driving course and pre-driving test assessment are just two things you can to do to make you a successful learner-driver, and a better motorist. But they're not the only things. Why do 120 hours of supervised driving when you can do 125? Or 135? And if you have some time and money at your disposal, why not pay for an extra lesson of professional driver tuition? Think of it as a refresher course where you can check you're still on the right track. Take every opportunity you can to learn as much as you can, and you'll get the results you deserve.
