I’m a driving expert – here’s how TikTok could help you pass your driving test first time and save you HUNDREDS
A DRIVING expert claims that TikTok could help learners to pass their driving test first time, and save them a huge amount of cash.
With the test backlog caused by the Covid-19 lockdown still ongoing, learners who fail their driving exam face waiting months for a new test date.
A new survey by driving experts Vanarama found that one in eight drivers (12%) prioritises theory and practical driving test revision over academic exams such as A-levels and university exams.
A further one in five (21%) of drivers said they revised the same amount of time for their theory and practical driving tests and A-levels and university exams.
Handily, they have provided five tips to help you pass your driving test the first time.
Watch driving examiners on TikTok
In 2022, people in the UK spent, on average, 27.18 hours on TikTok per month, according to research from Statista.
Many driving instructors upload TikToks of their students’ mock exams and lessons for people learning to take tips from – so get watching now to give yourself a better chance of passing first time.
Don’t book the test centre with the shortest wait time
It can be tempting to book a practical test in an area you’ve never even been to before, never mind having driven there, just so you can secure the earliest date possible.
However, this could hinder your chances of passing first time.
Not only will it add to nerves, but it’s an advantage to know the driving test routes before taking your practical.
Keep your eyes on the road, not the examiner
It can be tempting to glance at your examiner whilst taking your practical driving test to try and gauge what they’re thinking and noting down.
However, this could result in you failing your driving test for not concentrating on the road, which could, in turn, cause you to veer off track and potentially cause an accident.
Don’t be afraid to ask your examiner to repeat themselves
Your nerves will most likely be running high throughout your practical exam, so if you mishear or aren’t sure what the examiner has asked you to do, don’t be afraid to ask them to repeat.
Don’t immediately assume you’ve failed after a minor mistake
Overthinking and being self-critical in your practical test will cause you more harm than good.
Sometimes you can be aware of a driving mistake you have made straight after doing it and assume you’ve failed your test, causing you to take the rest of the test less seriously and make further errors.
This comes after a driving instructor revealed the three things you didn’t know are illegal on the roads.
Plus, a driving expert has revealed why drivers don’t need to stop at all red lights.
