What time of day should I book my driving test?
This is entirely up to you and so there is no right or wrong answer to this.
Many of us function either better in the morning or in the afternoon. If
you are a morning person then you will want to take the test in the morning
when you are at your best.
If however you are an insomniac or find it hard to get to sleep when you
have something big coming up the following day, then it would make sense to
book the test for the afternoon so you are not anxious about having to get
up early in the morning. However, if you are someone whose nerves will
build steadily during the day, then it might be best to do it in the morning
to get it over with, as it were, one way or the other!
Of course, most people will want to take the test in the daylight. Another
consideration for some can be road traffic conditions. Now, whilst most
roads are busy most of the time these days they do of course vary
considerably, and so you might like to avoid certain times of day when you
know all the roads near the test centre are really busy, as many find it
easier and less pressured to take a test on quieter roads when there is less
traffic about (and in turn less potential and developing hazards around).
Try not to put too much pressure on yourself - the good thing about the
driving test is that, if you do fail, it is easy to arrange another one:
although you have the cost of the test which is not to be sneezed at, it is
much easier to retake than school exams for instance.
