Here are the Top Ten reasons for Driving Test failure according to Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
Take a few moments to look through the list below and note which ones applied to you. You may find it useful to think back to your driving lessons and ask yourself which driving skills your driving instructor needs to keep practicing with you. When you have done this, you will have an accurate idea as to where your strengths and weaknesses lie and, if you haven’t done so already, you can then use the relevant exercises and techniques to help you.
Observation at junctions – ineffective observation and judgement
Reverse parking – ineffective observation or lack of accuracy
Use of mirrors – not checking or not acting on the information
Moving away – ineffective observation or control when moving away
Use of signals – not given, not cancelled or misleading signals
Incorrect positioning – at roundabouts, lanes and bends
Reversing around a corner – ineffective observation or lack of accuracy
Lack of steering control – steering too early or leaving it too late
Turn round in road – ineffective observation or lack of accuracy
Inappropriate speed – travelling too slowly
It could well be that your previous driving instructor put you through your driving test before you were really ready, or perhaps you felt you were ready and insisted on taking your driving test! Well only you will know the true answer to that.
What we do know is that most students fail through doing something silly that they would never normally do due to nervs so we focus on dealing with those nerves through several methods of practice and preparation with things like the Driving Mock Test reigate, working on weaknesses and making them strengths. Not telling family about your test so theres NO pressure to pass first time!
These techniques and many others have been learned by us over the many years we have been teaching student to drive in reigate, as we said before everyone is different but our expert training enables us to fully understand how best to train you so that you pass your driving test with ease and enjoy doing so.
