« on: 01/10/2010 13:07:45 »
Some tips to how to overcome the nervousness at the time of the driving test

1) Practice and practice and practice - The main reason of failure in a test is lack of preparation and practice. So practice well before booking for driving test once you are confident then try to book your driving test.
2) Before going for the driving test do at least once mock driving test with your instructor.
3) Avoid listening to 'failure stories'. This would make you more nervous. Just focus on your performance.
4) Think positive about your driving test. Thinking can build an actual difference to overcoming driving test nerves as the nervousness is also one of the reason of failure.
5) Don't worry if you make mistake - Your mistake could be minor driving fault, wont necessary fail you in test. If you make a mistake, keep calm and focus on your driving.
6) Believe in yourself - Be confident in your own abilities.
7) Don't take medicines to calm your nerves.
8) One day before your test get a good rest.
9) Take a test time which is more suitable for you considering the traffic and etc.
10) Don't tell your friends and other people that you've booked your driving test. This will build the extra stress of trying to live up to your friends and others expectations. Letting your parents know will do as they will give you all the support you want.
11) Revise in mind - Perform coordinated tasks by imagining doing them, by practicing in your head.
12) Perspective - Overall, remember that although exams are important, they are not the be all and end all. You can always re-take the test.

I find here that some apply a modicum of lubricant to the palm of the examiner, and, with a sufficient amount of the appropriate lubricant, the test is so easy it is as if you did not do it at all.
