I failed my drivers test the first time, but passed the second time.

Although I was devastated when I failed, the extra month really helped me to become more prepared.

The reason why I failed was due to the fact that I did not know how to turn on my headlights and parallel park between the cones. I did not know how to turn on my headlights because mine are automatic, and I had to actually turn them on on my own. Most cars have automatic headlights, so learning to turn them on is a key factor in passing your test.

Another key to passing your test is parallel parking. I couldn’t parallel park between the cones because I was too nervous, so take my advice and try to relax and practice, practice, practice.

When taking your drivers test, be sure to know your car inside and out. Practice parallel parking. When you arrive at the test center,  take your time, relax, and have confidence in yourself.

Tips for passing your test:

  1. Relax and remember to breathe.
  2. Make sure you know your car inside and out.
  3. Use your turn signals when parallel parking.
  4. Turn off your radio while taking your test because it will help the driving instructor know you’re listening to them.
  5. Keep your phone at home.
  6. Make sure you have everything they might ask you for.
  7. Have confidence in yourself.

Good luck!
