A common reason test takers suffer from performance anxiety is inadequate practice. A test taker who puts off studying or who doesn’t practice driving regularly has deprived himself of the chance to prove to himself that he can drive well in a variety of different situations. Most often, test takers who fail their road tests on the first or second attempts fail because they didn’t practice enough. Practice driving every day if you can possibly. The more familiarity you have with various road conditions, the more confidence you will have on the day of your test that you can handle anything that comes your way.
