Practical Driving Tips for Your On-road Test

To complement your written test preparation, honing your practical driving skills is crucial for passing the on-road component of the NSW driving test. Here are several practical driving tips to keep in mind:

  • Practice Defensive Driving: Always be aware of your surroundings and anticipate the actions of other drivers. This means keeping a safe distance from vehicles in front, being cautious at intersections, and constantly scanning the road for potential hazards.
  • Master Vehicle Control: Smooth operation of the vehicle is key. Practice smooth steering, braking, and accelerating to demonstrate your control over the vehicle.
  • Follow Speed Limits: Adhering to speed limits is not just about avoiding fines—it’s also a critical aspect of safe driving. Ensure you’re always aware of the speed limit of the road you’re on and adjust your speed accordingly, especially in adverse weather conditions or in school zones.
  • Understand and Use Your Vehicle’s Signals: Using indicators for changing lanes or turning is essential. Also, ensure you understand and correctly use the vehicle’s headlights, hazard lights, and other important functions.
  • Stay Calm and Focused: Test anxiety can affect performance, so it’s important to stay calm and focused during the test. Take deep breaths, focus on the task, and keep a positive mindset.

Practicing these driving tips regularly before your test will not only help you become a safer, more competent driver but also greatly improve your chances of passing the on-road test on your first attempt. Remember, competence builds confidence, so the more you practice, the more confident you’ll be during your test.
