How To Pass Your Driving Test

The Driving Test:

When it comes to learning how to drive, I would recommend that you turn to a qualified instructor rather than a family member or friend. A spouse, boy friend or girl friend might be a really bad choice. Learning how to drive from someone who isn’t a qualified instructor can mean that you pick up bad habits.

It is very common that someone who has been driving for a long time becomes less focused on certain things. While these driving habits might not be dangerous or bad, they may still cause you to fail your test.

Everybody can tell you that driving to pass your test is slightly different from the way you will end up driving on a regular basis. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try to learn a better way of driving from someone who is trained to teach you.

If you pick up driving skills quickly or not, is usually up to you. A driving instructor can often tell which clients will do well, because those clients are usually very keen to learn, listen very carefully so as not to miss vital information, ask questions if they don’t understand, and read up on the subjects covering in the lessons.

The Written Test:

Most of the time you are required to pass a written exam as well as the practical. I see no excuse for failing the written theory. Every state’s manual or handbook is mandatory reading. And there is usually plenty of other material around, including the practice tests on this site.

To me it is simple, a driver’s license is not something you can afford to cheat your way through. The more you know, the better driver you will be. In addition, the better driver you are, the less likely it is that you end up in an accident.

Some details in the driver’s manual might seem irrelevant or insignificant for your driving skills. However, knowing your numbers is an important part of the examination. Typical questions will deal with speed limits and the distance you must keep to a fire post or a railroad crossing when you park your car.

Study everything carefully and you will pass the first time.

    how can i do to pass driving test?

  2. Wanted to ask you, that I was in the middle of a 30 question sample, and took a break between answerring my 21 questions out of the 30, then I came bak to my computer and by accident I back spaced out of the quesstion of 30 I was in, and now I was going to continue after my eye break(i am 73) AND NEED A BREAK, HOW DO I RETREIVE THE 21 QUESTIONS I ANSWERED SO THAT I CAN REVIEW WHICH MISTAKES I MADE FOR MY RECORD AND STUDY?



    • Unfortunately you cannot retrieve old questions, or even go back in your test, at this point. In a near future, there might be shorter tests for some states that currently have more than 25 questions.

  3. it is mainly common sense you just gotta look over the book and study and you will pass it.*

  4. Most of the stuff is common sense. Just read every question carefully. One alternative is always way wrong, exclude that one right away. Then read what the other two actually says. It is not difficult to pick the right one if you use your brain. People who fail just don’t take their time to read everything. Thanks.
