When teenagers first begin to drive, there is a lot of excitement and possibility — they can drive to school themselves, drive to soccer matches, to friends houses on the weekends, to the mall. They first get behind the wheel and there may be some initial hesitations about being in control of such a large machine, but after a few weeks, and then months, it starts to become more natural. But there’s one final step that they have to overcome before they can really taste the freedom of the open road — the DMV driving test.
At Pacific Driver Education, we have taught hundreds of students to overcome their initial nervousness, watched them become masters of the wheel, and have seen them pass their tests with flying colors. But for some, the nervousness that comes before taking that final test can be overwhelming, often enough to cause them to fail the test. At our driving school, we offer the tools and problem-solving skills for students to feel confident on the road, but it’s often a challenge to teach a new driver how to not be nervous for a test.
If you’re preparing for your final DMV drive test, here are a few tips to keep in mind that will help calm you down. If you want additional driving lessons before you take the test, get in touch with Pacific Driver Education in Gresham, OR to sign up for our driving school.
