So when you
turn 17 in the UK you’re eligible to begin to learn to drive. To drive in the
UK you have to pass two tests; your theory and then your practical. You’re only
able to pass your practical once you’ve passed your theory, so most people
begin to revise when they’re coming up to their 17th birthday in
order to pass first time – for me this has not been the case.
around cars my whole life and I can drive very well – I just haven’t been able
to pass my theory; the test is now seeming to be becoming the bane of my life!
Today, I failed it for the third time and I’ve decided to set myself some
pointers which may also help anyone else struggling to pass as well!
1.REVISION. REVISION. REVISION. Obviously this seems like the most obvious one,
but I feel that many people including
myself, have tried to bluff it and been like ‘heck, I don’t need to revise
I’m going to pass.’ Then you fail. You need to remember that there are over
1000 different questions that could be selected for your 50 in the test. I’m
now setting myself half an hour a day on practise questions because otherwise I’ve
got no chance!
2.Hazard Perception. This is the annoying part where you can’t click too much and have to
make sure you click for a ‘developing hazard’, and not a ‘potential hazard’. In my test today which I failed this bit
screwed me over big time. I recommend downloading apps which have practise Hazard
Perception tests and also having a look on the DVLA website – they have practise theory tests too.
is everything when it comes to tests like these. Fortunately, I think if it’s
you give the DVLA 3 working days notice you are able to change the date of your
test if you do not feel ready. Not everyone will feel ‘ready’ as such for it,
but if you’re anxious or nervous you can always put it back.
a few tips to helping with learning your theory which I’m going to be using.
Let me know in the comments below how long it took you to pass your theory, or
if youre struggling and in the same boat I am aha.
been working full time now coming up to two years and being able to have my own
money it makes it a bit difficult to create a list of the things I want; so
below is my ultimate wish list – please
note they are a bit pricey hence why it’s the ‘ultimate’ wish list.
been a massive fan of the Classic Mulberry Bags and this one just settles my
heart for me. I adore red toned fabrics and this bag just does it for me. It’s
a Classis Mulberry in ‘Oxblood Natural Leather’. For a Mulberry as well it’s
not too pricey either. Fair enough it stands at £895 – but it’s definitely not the
money I have at the moment; so if I were to wake up to this underneath the tree
I’d be extremely thrilled.
Next is a
pair of shoes that every girl should have in their wardrobe. Christian
Louboutin. These are called the Very Stagram Shiny Calf and I think they’re
absolutely gorgeous. I’m not one for wearing glamourous heels like these; but I
know if I had a pair I’d definitely get my wear out of them. Yet again, they’re
£625 which is a heck of a lot for a pair of shoes but hey ho one day!
the gorgeous Double Heart Pendant from the Return to Tiffany collection. Rose
gold, elegant and absolutely beautiful, need I say anymore?! This necklace is
£595 but it’s available in gold and sterling silver as well, maybe I’ll opt for the cheaper one first.
three gifts which sit on my ultimate Christmas list this year, let me know in
the comments what would be the best gift for you to receive this year!
