How does the learner driver need to prep for the provisional driving tests?
- Get familiar with the areas around the test center. The test can last for 30-45 minutes, so the test may take place near the testing office. Take some driving lessons around the testing office to get accustomed to the environment. You get prepared psychologically as you will drive in a familiar zone without feeling overwhelmed by driving on new terrain, especially during the test.
- Put more hours in driving practice under supervision. The more skills you nurture the more prepared you will be to control the car. You will have to demonstrate some slow-speed maneuvers, which are simple but still candidates get trapped and fail the test. So, keep calm and focused on the test or you will make small avoidable errors.
- You will also need to demonstrate the function and location of different car controls, devices, and instruments. Using them competently is crucial but knowing how they work is crucial. Learn your car controls and tools inside out to avoid blanks when asked a relevant question.
- Make sure to collect the documents needed for the driving test including the learner’s license, logbook, or if necessary original international license.
- Get a sound sleep the night before to avoid physical and mental stress. Eat and drink moderately before the test. Feel confident and drive safely according to the NSW Road Rules.
