  • Prepare yourself thoroughly for the exam. Read books, such as the Highway Code, Know your road signs and get familiar with driver hours. Driver hours, tyre tread depths and stopping distances are things that clients easily forget. Prepare, prepare, prepare and find ways to remember these. Things like mind-maps, convert the facts to images or maybe rhymes.
  • Practice. If you haven’t taken an exam for a while, then get into the habit of practicing. We supply up-to-date software, which although not identical questions to the test, are as close as you can get. It is important to read all of the material and practice the tests when you are ready.
  • Refresh your knowledge constantly. We learn in small chunks, so little and often. Don’t leave studying until the night before because this will not be effective for most people.
  • Relax on the day of the test. There is plenty of time to answer all of the questions so read them thoroughly before moving on.
  • When you are doing the hazard perception it is important not to click too many times because the system will exclude these.
