New Year’s Resolutions For Learner Drivers

New Year’s Resolutions For Learner Drivers
George Trout
  • On January 5, 2016

With a new year comes a fresh start for everyone. 

If you’re learning to drive and haven’t already set yourself a New Year’s resolution, you might want to consider angling it towards your driving tuition.

What Should A Learner Driver Resolve To Do?

There are so many things a learner driver could choose to improve upon; picking just one might be difficult.

If you haven’t already made a resolution, we’ve selected 5 different ones, relevant to 5 different types of learner drivers, you may want to consider.

Learner Driver Categories & Resolutions

The Timid Learner Driver 

This is the driver who can’t help but panic when they get behind the wheel of a car. Your resolution is simple, be more confident. Don’t act rashly of course, but try to make progress where appropriate. A dangerous driver tries to get to places too quickly. That said, a timid driver doesn’t get anywhere at all!

The Aggressive Learner Driver

The polar opposite of the timid driver, the aggressive driver is heavy footed, a little too cocky and always in a rush. Your New Year’s resolution can be to slow down and focus on taking your time in higher risk situations. These situations include: blind junctions, dual carriageways and roundabouts.

The Easily Distracted Learner Driver

This is the learner who easily looses focus. Instead of paying attention to what’s in front of them, they ponder on what they’re doing after the lesson. For these people we say you should resolve to pay more attention, in particular with your vital safety checks (MSM routine and 6 point checks).

The Perfectionist Learner Driver

This is the learner who completely beats themselves up whenever they get the slightest thing wrong. It’s good to try your best but also remember to revel in your success. You are allowed to make some mistakes, that’s why minor faults don’t necessarily equal a fail. We suggest you resolve to take pride in yourself more. We all make mistakes.

The Slow Learner Driver 

This is the person that is quite literally a ‘slow learner’; they take longer than normal to grasp concepts and to perform routines / manoeuvres correctly. These people need extra time and help. Every learner can benefit from private practice, however these are the people we would suggest make it their resolution to do more private practice.
