You should always learn driving from someone who has sufficient experience. There are many realms of knowledge that would only be acquired through experience. You can read all the books you want, hone your knowledge and practice any skill. Unless you put your knowledge to use, encounter realities and have enough experience, you will never know how good you are. Learning how to drive from an experienced driver is imperative, so is seeking firsthand help before a driving lessons Brisbane.
Now, what do we mean by firsthand help before a practical test? You would definitely go to the local test center. You certainly wouldn’t be traveling to another city or state. Chances are very high that people you know have undertaken the practical test in recent months or years. There could be someone in your school, college, neighborhood, work or just a person you happen to know. Even if there is no one you know directly, you can always ask for a reference from people you know. There will always be someone who knows someone who has recently taken a practical test at the given test center.
We are not talking about a practical test in general but one that is being held at the center you have chosen and where you would be going to prove your driving skills. The reference you get will offer firsthand help. You need to know who the examiner or instructor is, you should know what their preferences are, what kind of instructions they issue and when, if they are cordial or appear to be very stringent, if they have the tendency to keep pushing you towards the maneuvers that you are not necessarily good at and anything else that you think is important.
There are standard instructions that an examiner or instructor must abide by during a practical test. However, nothing prevents the instructor from repeating one instruction or changing the order. It is absolutely normal to personalize a practical test if the instructor thinks that you have some weakness. Those having trouble with reverse may be asked to reverse more than once, just to find that chink in the armor.
When you get firsthand feedback, you would get to know these realities. These realities can very well be your challenges so you must prepare for the practical test accordingly. Even the best aspiring drivers can make mistakes during a practical test. You cannot be too prepared.
