5 Ways to Make Your Driving Practice Fun

5 Ways to Make Your Driving Practice Fun

Admittedly driving lessons are not always the highlight of every learner driver’s day. The high of the first lesson has probably been and gone. As a result, your practice has become a little bit repetitious.

If you have learner driver insurance, having this kind of attitude will stop you from getting the most out of your money. We don’t want you to waste a second and that’s why we’re here to re-motivate you by disclosing 5 ways you can make your driving practice fun again.

Travel somewhere you love

If you’re a little bored of driving around aimlessly, make the experience a fun one by choosing a fun destination. Take the car to somewhere you really love, whether it be a restaurant, a friend’s house, or simply anywhere that makes you happy.

Prizes for good work

The main aim of driving practice is to make progress. If you’re not seeing any more progress, perhaps you need something to spur you on. Set yourself various goals and if you achieve one give yourself a prize after the lesson. For example, for every manoeuvre you do successfully you can treat yourself to an extra episode of ‘The West World’. Now that’s a prize I’m sure we can all get excited about.

Take a friend

If driving with mum or dad isn’t the best then why not experiment with driving with a friend? Learner driver insurance is not just for practising with a parent, a friend is just as capable of accompanying you if they fit our required criteria. Invite them along, show them what you can do, have a couple of laughs (just be sure to concentrate and drive safely) and if they can give you some pointers then all the better.

Practice in various cars

A single learner driver insurance policy can only be used to cover one car however, if you get bored of practising in the same car, you can take out a separate 1 day policy to try driving in a different car. Not only will this vary your practice but you’ll be able to get a feel for how different cars operate. This is particularly important if you intend to buy a new car after you pass and don’t know what it will be.


If you’re doing the same routes over and over again, we understand you might be getting bored. Take the opportunity to go and explore somewhere you’ve never been before. The world is full of great places and beautiful locations. Who knows, you might even find the perfect selfie spot?

Hopefully you can use these suggestions to re-ignite your passion for driving and avoid letting your learner driver insurance go to waste.
