Driving lessons can be stressful. That is why we have created a list of things to do during your driving lesson to ensure that you have a great learning experience and will successfully get your license.
Driving instructors encounter new and nervous learners on a daily basis. You’re not the first new learner they are teaching and you won’t be the last, so take some pressure off yourself. Take a deep breath, you’ll be fine – the instructor is there to help and teach you!
Go in With an Open Mind
Your parents or a friend might have taught you a few things about driving. While that knowledge is great and gives you an upper hand, don’t try to argue or dispute the way that your instructor is teaching you. They most likely know how a driving test is administered and what the testers are expecting/looking for.
Don’t be Afraid to Ask Questions
The best way to learn is to ask. Your instructor is there to help you become a great and safe driver. If you don’t understand certain concepts or need further clarification, your instructor will be more than happy to answer those questions for you.
Learn From Your Mistakes
Many people get discouraged when they make a mistake, especially when it comes to driving. Don’t let that be you. Always remember that your mistakes are the biggest learning opportunities.
Make Sure You Are Well-Rested
Make sure you get your full eight hours of sleep and a nice, healthy breakfast before your lessons to ensure that you are highly alert and ready to learn.
People learn at different paces. Don’t expect to be a great driver after a few lessons. Driving is a skill and takes lots of practice to master. Take the pressure off yourself to get everything in a short amount of time. As you learn, you will get more confident and that will show in the way that you drive. Breaking down your learning into smaller sizes, and focusing on a new skill each lesson, will ensure that you have a solid driving foundation that will serve you for the rest of your driving career.
Make Sure You Are Comfortable
Make sure you are in comfortable clothing and shoes. Choose items that are not restrictive and allow easy movements. You’ll want to avoid clothing that is too hot or too heavy, as having to adjust it will take away from your lesson, and will also reduce your focus. Wearing comfortable shoes will ensure that you can feel what you’re doing when you’re alternating between the gas and the brake.
