The Lead - Up to The Irish Driving Test.

Written by Robin Piggott

Continued from page 1

Provisional License………..A current Irish provisional license is required in order to sitrepparttar Irish Driving Test, Foreign licenses from countries outsiderepparttar 148573 EU will not be accepted .It is also worth pointing out that in order to be issued with a Provisional Licence one must first passrepparttar 148574 Driver Theory Test. All these aspects take time to complete and so it’s not something that you can accomplish in a couple of days and require thought and planning .Details ofrepparttar 148575 provisional licence and theory test requirements can be found onrepparttar 148576 Astral Driving School web site; details atrepparttar 148577 end of this article .

Perhaps all of this might seem just another load of bureaucracy but it indicatesrepparttar 148578 importance andrepparttar 148579 level of concern that is placed onrepparttar 148580 acquisition of an Irish Driving Licence byrepparttar 148581 Authorities. European legislation continues to fuelrepparttar 148582 changes to driving laws and there are a considerable amount of new laws inrepparttar 148583 can which are about to be rolled out. We are talking about Speed cameras Nationwide,repparttar 148584 full implementation ofrepparttar 148585 penalty points system, a dedicated Garda Traffic Corps, and mandatory tuition in line with most other European Countries. The regulation, examination and monitoring of Driving Instructors is another aspect currently about to be introduced and all ofrepparttar 148586 above is destined to make a coordinated improvement to our horrific road Traffic accident statistics.

The Driver…. There are occasions when, when onrepparttar 148587 days leading up torepparttar 148588 Driving Test disaster strikes… a change of car, a mechanical problem which cannot be resolved in time, or even an accident onrepparttar 148589 way torepparttar 148590 Test. This latter happened to a pupil of mine recently, who, while trying to circumventrepparttar 148591 long Driving Test waiting list by driving half way acrossrepparttar 148592 country to a strange Town, had a contretemps with a rather large truck. The moral here for Irish drivers is that it is not a good idea to attempt a Driving Test, miles away from your home location. It requires a good deal of practise and familiarisation ofrepparttar 148593 area and test routes close to your chosen centre to give you a good chance of passing first time.

What we are not saying is that practise on Test Routes will guarantee success nor are we saying that by practising on Test Routes tillrepparttar 148594 cows come home will takerepparttar 148595 place of good basic skills and professional Driving lessons .It is just one ofrepparttar 148596 ways that a keen learner driver can tiprepparttar 148597 balance in his or her favour. Another important tip is to reconnoitrerepparttar 148598 general area inrepparttar 148599 few days beforerepparttar 148600 Test and again onrepparttar 148601 day ofrepparttar 148602 Test if that’s possible to check for major road or building works which could create a difficult situation that may not be handled torepparttar 148603 Examiner’s satisfaction.

In Limerick as in many parts ofrepparttar 148604 Country there are significant building, drainage and other projects going on continually, resulting in much road network disruption. In fact I have often felt that Limerick wasrepparttar 148605 most dug-up City inrepparttar 148606 Universe. I am sure it’s all necessary and we will all benefit inrepparttar 148607 long run. It is not uncommon for a really excellent pupil who has allrepparttar 148608 hallmarks of becoming a courteous and skilful driver and who is deserving of Driving Test success to fall foul of such situations duringrepparttar 148609 Test and pick up a grade three disqualification. Stray dogs, stray Pedestrians (of whom there are many) and particularly very young children playing in quiet side streets all present very real and demanding hazards duringrepparttar 148610 Test.

All ofrepparttar 148611 above hazards can be planned for and an in-depth preparation forrepparttar 148612 Driving Test covering allrepparttar 148613 points mentioned will go a long way to achieving success.

We are going to end this article as we began by stating that passingrepparttar 148614 Driving Test is onlyrepparttar 148615 beginning of a career onrepparttar 148616 road and that it would be a good idea to contemplate taking some additional Night-time and Motorway lessons before embarking on any long journeys or adventures. There is an ever increasing army of novice Drivers coming ontorepparttar 148617 roads here in Ireland and this will continue to grow in line withrepparttar 148618 population increase we are currently experiencing .All new immigrants should regard it as a top priority to take professional Driving lessons and certainly not leave this until a couple of weeks beforerepparttar 148619 Test appointment.
