Top driving test tips from instructors in Worksop
Local driving instructors in Worksop have given us the lowdown on passing the driving test first time.
1. Brush up on rural road driving
Our instructors in Worksop 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.
Make sure you practise judging what speed is sensible to drive at on country roads.
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.
Manual and automatic: which is best?
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.This flexibility can be handy when buying a car.
Manual lessons are often cheaper as automatic instructors are few and far between. Some drivers prefer the control a manual can give while driving too.
Automatic cars on the other hand are more straightforward to begin with as you don't need to worry about gear changes at all.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 Worksops busy streets, you may find an automatic easier.
Both transmissions come with their pros and cons, so think carefully before making your decision!
