3 Ways to Get Ready For the Driving Test

It’s finally happened. The teenager in the family has blown out the 17 candles on top of their cake and now they’re ready to hit the road. However, getting ready for the driving test in QLD is going to take a lot of hard work.

1. Understand the dangers that young, novice drivers face.

Think about the risks that will be faced while driving. Not only does a driver need to account for mistakes other drivers could make, they need to consider teenage drivers are more likely to get into a fatal car accident than any other age group.

Progressive Insurance Australia found that injury from car accidents is the biggest risk of death young people will face. Death from accidents outnumbers every other cause of death for teenagers combined.

2. Study all the laws.

Think of a driving test as one of the most important tests a teenage driver will have to pass in their entire life. Just like someone might study hard before their finals in school, a student driver will need to study all the driving laws.

Make sure they can answer questions on who has the right of way at a stop sign, how late they are able to drive with a P1 license, as well as speed limit laws. Use resources like Your Keys to Driving in Queensland to make sure they are ready for their driving test.

3. Attend a good driving school.

Not all driving schools are created equal. Parents should make sure to enrol their teenager in a school that is known for promoting safe habits and offering as much behind-the-wheel time as possible. The more hours they can clock behind the wheel, the more comfortable and familiar they will be when it comes time to take the driving test.

The most important thing to remember is to always follow the law and drive cautiously to avoid any accidents. Having a driver’s license is a big responsibility. Don’t take it lightly.
