Driving test tip.

Keep calm and carry on. It sounds simple but worrying about what you have just done rather than what you need to do next really is a major factor in people failing their driving test. If you have made a mistake try to correct it, but when it is in the past leave it there and concentrate on the now. Your mistake may not have resulted in a failure mark, but if you worry about it, you may become distracted and then make a mistake that you do fail your driving test for.

We can help you pass your Driving Test.

We all want to pass our Driving Test first time so let us use our 21 years experience as DVSA ADI to show you how to increase your ability to pass your practical driving test way beyond the current pass rates for your local driving test centre.

Firstly a great way of improving your driving and your confidence is getting some extra practice with family or friends. The more good driving practice you get the more confident you will be when taking your test. However, it does need to be good practice, as practising with someone you has not been trained as an ADI or has not received advice in how to help the learner can do more harm than good.

The good news is that the advice needed is readily available from The Private Practice Handbook. To find out more Click Here.

The next way is preparing for your Practical Driving Test using The Driving Test Secret. This is a system devised by a highly experienced DVSA ADI that helps learners preparing for the test to become more capable, confident and reduce driving test nerves.

Just take a look at just one the recommendations we have received from learners who passed their test with the help from The “Secret”.

“Thank you so much for recommending The Driving Test Secret it was great preparation for the test and really helped to beat my nerves”. Catherine. Passed 1st time using the Secret.

Results have shown that regular use of the “SECRET” in either format can dramatically increase your ability to pass your driving test.

So whether you are taking your practical test in Hamilton or Glasgow Click here to find out more about how you can Pass With The “Secret” or Click here for The Driving Test Secret Revision Cards.

Cheaper car insurance for new and young drivers.

We all want to get the best deal when arranging car insurance. Whether it is insurance for your first car or you are looking at your renewal and thinking ouch that’s a lot of money, we can show you how to get the best deal.
