    How to Calm Your Nerves on the Day of Your Driving Test

    It’s quite normal to get those test jitters on the day of your driving test but what sets you apart from others is your confidence to ace the driving test.

    Almost 2000 people take their driving test every day in the Ireland. Even though the failure rate is low but the stress kind of builds up among the students as there is involvement of high fees of driving lessons and test fees.

    So, if you are getting cold feet and don’t know how to keep yourself at peace before the epic driving test takes place, then you’re at the right place.

    Here are some of the easiest ways to calm your nerves on the day of your driving test:

    1. Trust your knowledge – Often students tend to doubt themselves or the lessons they have learned during their driving classes. When you learn passionately without missing out the instructor’s advice, then there is nothing to be worried about.

    All you need is an ample amount of practice and faith in yourself. Motivate and tell yourself that you’re ready to face the test and be successful at it.

    2. Don’t skip breakfast – Being empty stomach on the day of your driving test will not only be harmful to your health but also for your mental strength.

    The brain should be fuelled for the D-Day to help you concentrate and give your best to the driving test.

    3. Don’t pressurise yourself on test day – Prepare yourself completely for the driving test, so that on the test day, you need not put further stress on yourself.

    Maybe a mock drive before the test can help you ease up. But by all means, don’t put any additional pressure on yourself to be perfect.

    4. Arrive on time – One of the crucial aspects of keeping yourself calm and motivated is to reach the driving test location before time. If you have reached 15 minutes prior to the test, then you can soothe your nerves without hurrying.

    Make sure you keep your test day free from other pending tasks as that might create an additional burden and a problem for your driving test. You need to concentrate only on your test and nothing else!

    5. Say NO to caffeine – On your test day, make sure that you are hydrated as that will help you keep your cool during the driving test. Drinking too much coffee before the test might make you nervous even more or agitate you and make you lose your calm.

    The examiner isn’t your enemy, so take time and give your best shot for the test to be excellent. Remember, a calm and steady mind can overcome any hurdle.

    💁 How soon can I start my lessons?
    The aim for us here at Ladybird is to match you the learner with a Ladybird instructor within a hour of your initial enquiry. Your matched Ladybird instructor will then be in touch with a specific date of availability and then they will get you booked in. All contact is then between you the learner and your instructor. With the large amount of booking our Ladybird instructors have pre-booking a few weeks ahead is always recommended.
    🚗 Can I choose what car I learn in?
    Our instructors are independent but we do maintain a strict policy on their instructor vehicles. 99% of our instructor cars are Ford Fiesta’s from 171 to present. This is so they teach in the most up-to-date and duel controlled cars. All instructor cars are well maintained, clean and ready!

    ❓ How many lessons do I need?
    Very common question with a very common answer. It depends. Our learners take on average 30 hours of driving lessons before passing their practical test – 17 hours fewer than the national average! So, if you’re new to the wheel, we’d recommend booking our 30-hour package. If you pass quicker, we’ll refund any unused hours (as long as you’ve used at least 20). And if you need a few more then you can top up by the hour to tide you over till your test. If you’d rather book a smaller lesson package to start with then that’s no problem – you can still top up by the hour once you’ve completed your first package to get yourself test-ready.
