Getting a driver’s license is one of the most exciting landmarks in a person’s life. And, like with any test, preparation can give you your best chance at passing your exam the first time.
Here are a few points to practice and review before taking the driving exam.
How to Pass A Driving Test The First Time
1. Road signs: Everyone knows what a stop sign looks like, but other road signs are less common and could trip you up during your driving exam. You should be able to recognize all major road signs, including merging signs and lane-ending signs, and know the rules that correspond to each. For example, if your lane is ending, you need to yield to the drivers in the lane beside you.
2. Traffic laws: It’s important to review traffic laws. Remember to check things like the speed limit of unmarked country roads, what time of night to turn your headlights on, and the regulations surrounding window tinting. These laws vary by state, so pick up a copy of your state’s driving exam study guide and read it carefully. Knowing the traffic laws in your area will not only help you pass your test, but it will also make you a better driver once you have your driver’s license.
3. Maneuverability: The maneuverability test involves parking and navigating through cones that are set up by the instructor. To prepare, practice with cones of your own in an empty parking lot.
4. Driving: One of the most important things you can do in preparation for your driving exam is to practice on the road. If you’ve already obtained your learner’s permit, get out and practice turning, signaling, changing lanes and passing. These skills take time to master, and the more you practice, the more comfortable you’ll be during the exam. You’ll also be a more experienced driver when you get behind the wheel. Make sure to check your permit laws in our state. You most likely need a licensed driver with you.
Once you ace that driving exam, have your parents call your family’s insurance provider and ask about teen automobile insurance. Your insurance agent should be able to add teen coverage to their main auto insurance policy, which is generally less expensive than taking out a policy solely for a teen before you get your actual license.
Having a trustworthy insurance company on your side is so important. Nationwide is one of the best with a long history of working with their customers to provide the best coverage. Nationwide has been holding Member Connections meetings for over 60 years These meetings allow the members a chance to provide feedback – what they are doing well and the things they need to improve on. Different than a focus group, the conversations are based on what the member wants to discuss.
By holding Member Connection meetings, Nationwide delivers an even more enhanced experience for their customers. Past Member Connections meetings have yielded actionable feedback benefiting the member and the company and by taking action on this information, Nationwide delivers on the promise to listen and act. That’s why having a company on your side such as Nationwide is so important!
