If you think you will be consumed with driving test nerves and anxiety taking over on the day of your driving test, how will you deal with them?
Well from personal experience and feedback from others I’d like to offer a few small bits of advice on helping to combat pre-test nerves on the day.
Bananas, there are a lot of people swear by eating a banana or two pre test helps calm them down and relieves the anxiety they feel to a certain extent.
Green tea, maybe have a cup of tea to help calm those nerves. Maybe even along with your bananas.
Brazil nuts, been told that these are also good nerve calming food.
Dark chocolate, another well know food item that is known to help suppress nerves. Forget the calorie count for a few hours.
Deep breathes, as you probably already know, but don’t always think of actually doing it, deep breathes are great for realising those pent up feeling of anxiety. How many times under pressure have you been told, “take a few deep breathes”?
Don’t think of things as a test, it’s basically just an assessment to confirm you are safe to be on the road, just think you are going for another driving lesson with me and drive the exactly the same way. After all, I wouldn’t be putting you up for test if you were not ready.
Lastly, try all of the above, it may help is some small way.
Good luck and enjoy the freedom of motoring when you pass.
