When you have had enough driving lessons, you should be able to drive safely without assistance.
Drive at an appropriate speed for road and weather conditions.
Your driving instructor will send you for your driving test when you can pass.
Knowledge builds confidence
Know and obey the traffic signs and rules of the road.
Be aware of other road users and try to anticipate their actions and avoid accidents.
Areas you should practice and feel confident with:
- Light and heavy traffic conditions
- Traffic lights
- Pedestrian crossings
- One-way roads
- Town driving
- Rural roads
- Dual carriageways
If there are any areas you do not feel confident in, practice these until you feel more confident.
It is a good to have a driving lesson a day or two before your test.
