Most of the trainees feel a butterfly when it comes to appearing for the driving test. If you think you belong to the same league you need to follow the instructions that our driving school at Drysdale would provide as guidance to overcome nervousness. What do precisely our instructors say?
Having confidence in Yourself
This is the first and foremost thing that you need to keep in mind. You need to be confident about yourself. You must tell yourself since the authority of the school has decided to put you to test, this itself implies that you are more than competent to crack the test with all the knowledge of driving. This very thought will give you the confidence to face the test. Tell yourself that you are competent enough to crack the test. This is one very effective way of getting over your nervousness.
Do not divulge the date and time of the test
Never reveal the date and time of your driving test to your friends and relatives. Expectations always run high and their curiosity will pin you down. They will keep on asking questions, wishing all the best to you, and believe me, these things take a heavy toll on your performance. You are not after all a professional performer, used to performing under the burden of expectations.
Consume a lot of water and other fluids…but no alcohol in the run-up to the test!
Keep drinking a lot of water or other fluids and this will keep you hydrated and hence, will lead to muscular and mental relaxation. In other words, it will help you keep calm. Do not consume alcohol any traces of alcohol while at the wheel lead to immediate cancellation. So to be on the safer side, stop consumption of alcohol 2/3 days prior to the test if you have the knack of consuming.
Do not have too much coffee and tea
Do not consume too much coffee and tea as the caffeine of the coffee and the tea aroma might get the better of your nerves, and keep them irritated. You need to be calm and composed during the run-up period.
Eat light and have healthy diets
Have light diets and more importantly, healthy diets that will be ideal for fast assimilation. Junk foods or too much fibrous foods might lead to digestive issues that may disrupt your proper thinking, which is imperative when it comes to preparing mentally for the test.
Last but not the least, you need to sleep well. Not only do you need a good night’s sleep, but you also have to take cat naps on the very day of the test, to keep any sense of anxiety or apprehensions at bay. Be confident and do not think too much about the driving lessons taught to you in Highton. This will mug things up. You will be driving on familiar routes and will be performing the same old steps that you have practised all these days.
And last but not the least, you must not consider the examiner as an alien. The examiners are extremely friendly and are always willing to help you crack the test. So when you enrol in Start-Smart Driving School, you can be assured of cracking the test at one go by all means. For further details, call us at 0418386090.
