Product Description

THE DRIVING TEST is like no other test we take in our lifetime. We're scrutinised for forty minutes by an examiner sitting close by who monitors our every action, from the way we control the car to dealing with all the other road users. Add in the reversing exercise and having to follow road signs or a map and it adds up to a truly nerve-racking experience. A dry mouth, a racing heart and sweaty palms make us very self-aware and we begin to doubt our own abilities. And what is it they're looking for? What do you have to do to be successful? All of the above concerns, and much more, are dealt with in this new DVD which contains crucial information about the practical driving test. It addresses key issues such as test nerves, myths and what is needed to be successful and pass first time. It has been designed for learner drivers, instructors, and parents or grandparents who may be supervising learners. It covers all aspects of the examiner's requirements, including every manoeuvre, the emergency stop and independent driving. Features: - Deal confidently with test nerves - Know the real secrets of test success - Learn the truth about test myths - See all the manoeuvres demonstrated - Understand all new changes to the test - Experience a 'test' in action - Hear feedback about independent driving on test - Watch rare footage of the first 1935 test - Discover 25 fascinating facts about the test - Prepare for the 'What Ifs' on test - Save money with Eco-Safe driving tips What makes this DVD unique is that seven different instructors explain matters from the perspective of new drivers, whose concerns and worries are addressed in a straightforward, user-friendly style. In-car filming shows a 'test', with running commentary, from the driver's point-of-view. Learners' questions are answered constructively with precision-engineered advice. This DVD has been scripted and produced by Brian M Stratton ADI (Approved Driving Instructor). A Grade 6 (highest grade) instructor, he is one of the UK's most qualified and experienced instructor trainers. Having been teaching since 1986, he has helped many learners through the L test and has tutored hundreds of instructors who, in turn, have taught many thousands of pupils. This DVD is the latest in a long list of acclaimed publications for learners and ADIs - written by Brian M Stratton. Current titles for instructors include: Core Competencies Made Even Easier, 6 Easy Steps to a Higher Check Test Grade and Blueprint 19 Diagram Book. Brian is one of a select few instructors who have been trained by the Driving Standards Agency - the people who set the driving test - and this has given him a very clear understanding of the examiner's test requirements. Costing less than half the price of an average driving lesson, this DVD is packed with information which will ensure test candidates are confident and well prepared. The advice and guidance provided is applicable to both manual and automatic vehicles. All content has been verified by a former DSA Supervising Examiner.
