How to Prepare for Your Driving Test, Greece, New York

Learning to drive is an exciting but nerve-wracking experience. If you’ve already attended driving instruction classes, the next step is to sign up for a driving test. Before your big day arrives, there are a number of steps you should take to ensure you pass the test with flying colors. Here are just a few tips to help you succeed. 

3 Tips for Driver’s Test Readiness 

1. Gain Real-Life Experience

In addition to professional driving instruction, drive around outside of class to help build your skills. If you’re a teenager, have your parents ride with you. If you’re a late learner, have an experienced friend or relative sit in the passenger seat. For best results, have a professional driving instructor provide individual on-the-road instruction. This will help you gain more hours of experience and expose you to situations that will use what you’ve learned. 

2. Identify & Improve Your Weaknesses

If you have trouble parallel parking, drive to an empty parking lot, set up a few cones or markers, and practice the maneuver over and over until you’re confident you’ll be able to perform under pressure. If you have trouble switching lanes, make it a priority to spend more time driving on the highway. Repetition will help you build the confidence and expertise you need to improve.  

3. Study Test Materials

In addition to practice, review written materials to reinforce your knowledge of road safety and traffic rules. Make it a priority to dedicate a few hours a week to read over the driving guide offered at the DMV. Use a highlighter to mark any important details on right-of-way and safe signal use.
