Driving Test Tips Revisited.

We have been running our Blog now for just four months and it has been an illuminating experience punctuated with lots of hard work and many hours at the Computer. The purpose behind our blogs and indeed our Web Site has been to help the many hundreds, nay thousands of Drivers who are preparing (!) to sit their Driving Test. The information that we disseminate freely has taken a lifetime to build and collate and certainly is of great value to all Learner Drivers, whether just starting off or finally getting ready to sit a Driving Test because the Law now insists that we don’t spend twenty five years on a Provisional License.

Just a week ago an anonymous blogger came across a post I made to a forum and took exception to my comments, branding me a racist, to which I take great exception. Unfortunately the scourge of Anonymous blogs allows anything to be said about anybody without fear of retribution. Not only was my post printed out of context but a photo was stolen from my Web site which is in breach of copyright. I view the comments levelled at me as libellous but if anyone out there happens to stumble on this post(or indeed mine) and takes offence I apologise in advance.
I am not Irish but my two daughters were both born in Limerick and I myself do happen to come from an interesting multi- cultural background with a Stepmother who was Hungarian and spoke seven languages. I have therefore been very used to mixing with many different nationalities throughout my life and business career and continue to do so very happily.
All in all, not a happy situation for myself since I have from an early age grown up in a multi racial environment, been to a multi racial school, had multi racial friends and indeed looked after many Learner Drivers from many countries and several Continents.

There has been quite a lot of media coverage in recent days of the fast changing Irish Society in which we all live and prosper and of the far reaching changes that we will face as Ireland opens its borders to all nationalities in the coming months and years. This changing environment, which finally takes Ireland out of the dark ages and into the 21st century as a country to be reckoned with, is already having an impact on our Driving Environment. The long waiting list for a Driving Test Appointment is not going to change in the short term because of the huge Demographic shifts which we are experiencing. This is creating a much more difficult situation for Learner Drivers than a few years ago since, having applied for a Driving Test, the date is so far into the future that it is forgotten about and then only resurrected a couple of weeks before the Test which is much too late to be preparing.
We have written much, in great detail, about Driving Test preparation and it is all available in our archives and in our articles published on the Web.

Here is a summary of the Top Ten Tips:-

1. Take Professional Lessons at least six to eight weeks before your expected Test Date.

2. Familiarise yourself with all the areas that Tests are conducted in, at different times and different days of the Week.

3. Know the Rules of the Road inside out.

4. Know all your secondary controls and how to switch them on or use them with out taking your eyes off the Road.

5. Ensure that you are totally familiar with all the New Technical Checks that you will be asked to demonstrate. These came in on 14/02/05

6. Get your car cleaned up and ALL loose articles removed.

7. Ensure all your paperwork is in order .License, Insurance, N.C.T.

8. Perfect both Reversing Manoeuvres so that you can do them in your sleep. This will take a lot of practise but we are talking about 25% of our marks here if you pick up one fault on each exercise.

9. Practise the Box Junction technique with reference to major Traffic Light intersections. This is not easy especially if you have thoughtless and unskilled Drivers making a thorough clown of them selves behind you.

10. Don’t change your Car or book a strange Driving School Car just before your Test; use the car that you are most familiar with.
