Top tips from instructors in Truro
Local driving instructors in Truro have shared thier insider tips for passing your test.
1. Practise driving on rural roads
Our driving instructors in Truro have highlighted rural roads as a tricky ""one to watch"" as you’re allowed to drive at the national speed limit, but sometimes that’s not the appropriate speed for the conditions.
Extra practice on country road driving will help you to set the right speed for the journey.
2. Drive defensively
When you’re driving in urban settings you need to be aware that not all drivers will drive well, or even follow the highway code! Make sure that you anticipate the behaviour of other drivers and adapt your own driving accordingly.
3. Directions aren’t the be all and end all.
You’ll receive directions from both the examiner and a sat nav at different points in your driving test. If you realise you’re in the wrong lane at the last minute, it might be dangerous to correct yourself. If that’s the case, it’s fine to make a wrong turn - it’s more important to drive safely than to follow directions accurately, and our local driving instructors say that you’re unlikely to be penalised.
Choosing between manual and automatic
Before you step foot inside an instructors car you have to decide between manual and automatic driving lessons.
Manual licence holders are able to drive both manual and automatic cars, however, automatic drivers are stuck with automatic cars only.Flexibility is the main plus point with learning in a manual.
Manual driving lessons are also cheaper, as there are more manual driving instructors available. Some drivers prefer the control a manual can give while driving too.
Taking automatics driving lessons may allow you to pass faster as you have less to learn such as clutch control.On top of this, the lack of a clutch pedal makes automatic cars easier to drive in heavy traffic, so it you’re going to be getting a car to run you around Truros busy streets, you may find an automatic easier.
There are pros and cons to both, so it's worth spending some time to research and decide before you start.
