Congratulations! You’ve passed your test and have a certificate to prove it! Your examiner will send your green license off to get the full license back, and this takes about 3 weeks, but you don’t need to wait for this to drive, as long as you have your certificate.
- Be sure to insure your car as a driver with a full license
- Ensure that your car is taxed
- Use P-plates for the first few drives, just to warn other road users that you might be slow, nervous or distracted to start with
- Remember to still drive sensibly as if you were on your test on your first few times alone while you get used to driving with distractions and using your own intuition and hazard perception.
- Leave a review for your LBoard instructor to say ‘thanks’
Enjoy your first drive and freedom!
Don’t worry! Not everyone passes first time. In fact, less than half of people in the UK do! Here are some tips to get you back on your feet:
- Go through your minors and majors with your instructor, to cover what could be improved on for next time, and to save you repeating the same mistakes.
- Remember that it’s not the end of the world, and that plenty of people who fail initially go on to pass their test a second, third or fourth time!
- Be patient with yourself in future lessons and try to spend some time really perfecting your technique. If you behave like it’s your driving test in every future lesson, you’ll be on the roads in no time — don’t give up!
