Are you ready to take one of the most important tests of your life? The one that guarantees freedom on the road, having your own set of wheels and, yes, sometimes (unfortunately) becoming the designated driver. But before you reach your goal, you’re looking at some long, tough hours ahead of you when you hit the books. Follow these tips during your practising driving theory test questions.
Chart out your goals and deadlines
Don’t wait till the night before your test to cram all the information. It’s a waste of money and effort on your part. Chalk out manageable deadlines for the different chapters, leaving at least two weeks for revision.
Get study material
This one’s obvious, but remember, aside from the basic material, there are also some great apps and online revision tools for you to work with. If you’re looking for a site to help you from start to finish, you can head over to UK Drive Test, where we provide study material, apps and mock tests.
Study with a friend
Let’s face it, you’d much rather be spending your evenings with your friends than being stuck in your room with these books. Try and combine the two. Chances are you know someone who’ll be taking their test too, so why not practice your driving theory questions together? Two minds are, after all, better than one.
Schedule regular breaks
Don’t wear out your concentration. Ideally, you should take a break every 45 minutes. Drink some water, do some stretches, check your Facebook for 10 minutes (not more, no matter how strong the temptation is!) before you hit the books again.
Don’t wait till you’ve completed the entire syllabus before you start revising. Ideally, you should spend the last 15 minutes of your each practice session revising what you’ve learnt. Schedule mock tests every week or month- just be sure not to wait till the last day. As a side note, plan how you’ll treat yourself if you score well on a mock test - it’ll do wonders for your motivation.
These are just a few tips to help you prepare for your driving theory test. Since everyone has a different learning style, you’ll have to see what works for you and perhaps even find other methods. Remember to keep your eyes on the prize (your driving license) and soldier on.
