How to Get The Most Out of Your Driving Lessons

Driving lessons are one of the most exciting periods of your teens or young adult life! Most of us start our learning process around this age. Learning to drive represents a new step in independence and autonomy as we prepare to leave college and enter the wide world and start seeking opportunities in employment or further education. If you’re currently undergoing or about to begin learning to drive, check out these tips below to help you get the most of your driving lessons!

Show up prepared

This one is usually helpful no matter what you’re doing, but especially for something as huge as learning to drive! Make sure you arrive on time and have studied up on the basics of your driving theory before you jump in and start driving. Your instructor will appreciate you reading up in advance!

Ask lots of questions

Never be afraid to ask questions! When it comes to something as important as learning to drive, you can never lose sight of the fact that you are learning to operate a huge machine capable of causing massive damage to property or great harm to people, so there are no stupid questions! If you are unsure, always ask.

Listen carefully

Asking the questions is only half the battle, you have to ensure you’re listening properly and engaging with what your instructor is saying, too! Do not go into your lesson with assumptions about how it works or try to cut corners in your understanding of the vehicle and roads, because that’s how people get hurt! Always listen to everything your driving instructor is saying and adjust your behaviour behind the wheel accordingly!

Relax and have fun!

Of course, the often-neglected rule of learning to drive is to try to relax and have some fun! This can be tricky when you’re stressing out trying to remember everything and listening to the instructor give you even more information, but it’s just as important to your experience and the associations you build with driving. If you have an awful time learning to drive, you’re unlikely to want to keep going when you finally get your license. So always try to have a little fun too!
