Learning a new skill can be a little challenging, but with a few tips and tricks, driving school doesn’t have to be hard. Here are some pointers to help you succeed:
  • Make sure you study your driver’s manual so you know the laws of the road.
  • Pay attention during driving school instruction and ask questions if you don’t understand something. Chances are, another student is wondering about the exact same thing!
  • Practice your driving skills with your driving instructor or another trusted adult—and listen to any feedback they offer. The more real-world practice you get, the more confident you’ll become.
  • Find a good method to help you relax during class and behind the wheel. Visualizing yourself completing a drive beforehand can help.
Learning to drive can be a little nerve-wracking, but with plenty of practice you’ll be on the road in no time. And when the time comes to get your own car, you can use the
