Best wishes to everyone from Fastpass school of motoring.
Hope everyone is safe and well. Whilst we can't teach anyone to drive at present. We can assist with learning still. Our objective is to help in any way we can, I know that many students will want to get into driving as quick as possible. As soon as we get the all clear to go back on the roads.
In the meantime if anyone would like assistance with Theory training, please leave a message and we will be happy to help.

Failed Driving Test

Posted on August 22, 2011 at 12:17 PM Comments comments (18)
A recent discussion prompted this, as a student of mine talked of a friends recent test failure. It's not uncommon as the Driving Standards Agency advice's us that on average 50% of tests end that way.
 
So why do so many fail?
 
Assuming you have studied hard and practised your skills. You know what to expect on the day. You should know how to handle it. You have done a number of mock tests and ironed out all of the problems before the big day. What can go wrong?
 
Have you done all of the above? Do you know what to expect? Because all to frequently I get students reffered to me who have failed tests with other instructors and they were no where near test standard. Consequences are serious, loss of test fee, dejected feelings, due to failure, Loss of confidence.
 
So why had their instructors put them forward for the test? Were they not aware of standard required? They should be. Have they assessed the student correctly before booking test, or was it done on a random timescale? I wonder. As a matter of profesional pride I want my students to pass first time. (See Testimonials)
 
So do not worry help is at hand. Consider hazard recognition, If you spot the problem first, you can take action. However if you do not recognise some thing as a problem you're unlikely to do anything about it.
 
How good are we at this? We should look at accident statistics, the cost of car insurance, why car repair company owners are so rich, why so many solicitors run claims management adverts on TV these days. It would suggest we are not very good.
 
My advice is this choose carefully your driving instructor. There are many good ones. They should be interested in dealing with your concerns, not just following a syllabus.
 
If anyone would like guidance after a test failure, whether personal or for a friend on family member, I am happy to talk to them without obligation.
 
Regards
Bill
