Do you know people who failed their driving test? It could be a close friend or a family member. It could even be you. Well, you probably don’t know a lot of people who failed their driving test. How could you? Most people are embarrassed to admit it. But you can bet they will go talking about it in the secret corners of internet forums where they know nobody really knows them. The most common reasons people give out for failing a driving test are parallel parking, dangerous driving, collision, too many errors, lack of confidence and anxiety. More often than not, people fail driving test due to test nerves. If you think about it; dangerous driving, collision, too many errors and lack of confidence could all be caused by nervousness. Instead of treating the symptoms, it is better to get down to the root of the problem and know how to deal with it.
Experiencing nerves during a driving test is nothing to be ashamed of. As a matter, it is normal and happens to more people than you can count. If it does happen to you, the question you should be asking yourself is what can you do about it? Remember, feeling nervous is just an illusion of the mind. Like when you’re trying to swim and the more nervous you are, the more likely you will drown. Driving is not so different. Whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve.
