Irish Driving Test Tips

Passing the Irish Driving Test today has nothing to do with how long you have been Driving, but how well you have been taught? how much you have learnt? and how much you put into practise on the big day.
The longer you have been driving without taking Lessons, the greater the opportunity for a Driving Test fail.There have been many changes and additions to the in the last three years, all for the greater good,and primarily fueled by EU Directives.

Three years ago the new marking sheet was introduced, which details the peformance of the candidate and is given to all on completion of the Test.This is an effort to highlight the areas that need improvement and for those that are unsuccessful a chance to practise the weaker skills before the next Test appointment.Previously only failed candidates received a marking sheet, so it led to the situation that a person who just squeaked through on the fault limit had no idea how close they came to failing ! This of course led to the common wave of the pass certificate with a false sense of achievement and a delusion that learning to Drive was now finished and you were a competent, practised skillful Driver.

Even Drivers today who have done exceptionally well on their Test still have several years to clock up behind the wheel before they can consider themselves competent.Its a fact that many serious accidents occur during the first year or two following the passing of the Driving Test.Those Learners who take several attempts to pass their Test are also at risk during this early period and quite often will become much better Drivers ultimately than those that Pass first Time. Euphoria, together with youthful exhuberance and enthusiasm is, in my estimation, a lethal cocktail.

Passing the Driving Test is not a endorsement of super-human driving skills but merely a statement of a range of basic skills that were demonstrated adequately on the day ! Competent and advanced expertise behind the wheel comes only after several years of regular Driving in all conditions and is allied to an understanding and appreciation and adherance to our Driving Legislation.
As a stark reminder to all Country Drivers, and a large part of the population live and drive most of the time on these Rural roads,every day of the week; I can recount at least six write-offs on my own stretch of road outside Limerick over the last few years...just a less than two mile long stretch.Included in these accidents were two fatalities. Enough said for now .. Drive carefully won't you?
