    Clackmannanshire car accident

    How to pass your driving test and avoid a car accident

    It is natural to be nervous about taking your driving test, as it is not uncommon for people to fail their test on the first try.

    However, all your instructor is looking out for during your test is proof that you can drive safely and cautiously, and can deal with potential hazards without causing a Clackmannanshire car accident.

    If you are able to prove that you are a competent driver, then one or two small mistakes will not cost you your licence, and remembering this is key to preventing you panicking and failing your test.

    • Practice. Whether your test is still weeks away, or tomorrow, you can never have too much practice before you head into your test. Make sure that you get out with your instructor as often as possible in the run up to your test, to help calm your nerves and increase your confidence.
    • Know what the examiner is looking for. If you know what you need to demonstrate then you can focus on this rather than trying to impress them with moves that they don’t care about. Your examiner is mostly looking for competence, politeness, and consideration, so practice these things.
    • Ask for a mock test. Your instructor may be happy to run you through a mock test, or even a couple of mock tests in the run up to your real exam. Treat these as real so that you can get used to the exam conditions and learn to feel calm.
    • Keep an eye on your speed. It would be a shame to pull off your test flawlessly but then fail because of speeding. Make sure to keep an eye on your speed at all times, and never let it creep up above the legal limit. Your examiner will be watching!

    Making a Clackmannanshire car accident claim

    Whether during your test or after you have achieved your driving licence, a Clackmannanshire car accident can be very upsetting, and very costly.

    However, if your Clackmannanshire car accident was caused by the negligent actions of another driver, this should not cost you your licence, and you can pay for damages on the other person’s insurance, and perhaps even make a compensation claim for your injuries.
