Driving advice 2 min read

Once you’ve got over the initial excitement of passing your test – you may feel a bit anxious about driving on your own after having the reassurance of your parent or driving instructor in the passenger seat. You may not be quite ready to try driving on the motorway on the day after you pass – the idea of this section is to offer information and advice, as and when you need it, on how to increase your confidence, develop your driving skills and start your new adventure on the open road.

Here are some helpful tips for new drivers who have recently passed their test:

orange_icon_driving_instructor_icon  You’re not alone – if it helps you feel more confident, take a parent or experienced driver with you on your first trip. Likewise, it’s important to take trips on your own – start with short trips maybe, and build up from there.

orange_line_icon_step_by_step  Set yourself goals – at some point, you will have to drive on your own, drive in adverse weather conditions and even take to the motorway. Set yourself goals to achieve these, and watch your confidence grow.

orange_line_icon_road  Learning doesn’t stop when you pass – in fact, this is the start of you becoming a great driver, which means it’s probably a good idea to keep hold of the Highway Code to refer back to when you need to.
