Top Tips for Passing Your Driving Theory Test First Time

Thursday, May 19, 2016

     For many people, the theory test part of learning to drive is more frightening than actually driving the car itself. In many cases, learner drivers feel comfortable learning to drive on the road and getting into the habit of safe driving in order to prepare for their practical test, but can’t get their heads around learning all of the different facts and bits of information that they will be asked about during the theory test. But, the theory test is essential to learning to drive and getting your license – without a pass, you won’t be allowed to sit the practical test, no matter how good of a driver you have become. Here are some top tips for passing your theory test.

Top Tips for Passing Your Driving Theory Test First Time
Start Early

     Leaving revising for your theory test to the last minute is a recipe for disaster. Although you may learn a lot of the answers to the questions that you’ll be asked - such as identifying different road signs - whilst you’re actually out on your driving lessons, don’t assume that because you’ve had a lot of lessons you will know the answers to all of the questions. Beginning early gives you the best chance of learning as much information as possible and familiarising yourself with the type of questions that are asked. When it comes to revision materials, there is a huge range available. Along with the DVLA’s official materials, you can also get free access to mock tests and more at Top Tests. 

Ask Questions

     It is your driving instructor’s job to help you learn how to drive and pass your test with as little attempts as possible – and this includes the theory test, too. If you’re worried about any part of your theory test or have a question about any of the information included in the test, your driving instructor will be able to help. No matter how silly you think your question may seem, it’s important to make sure that you have a clear understanding of what is expected of you during the test and the type of questions that you will be answering. A good driving instructor will be knowledgeable about the theory test and able to discuss with you any problems or questions that you might have to help put your mind at rest. 

Drive First

    Many learner drivers take the theory test before they start driving in order to get it out of the way. Whilst this may be a good strategy for some, others fail on the hazard perception part of the test simply because they are not used to looking out for hazards on the road. Taking a few driving lessons before sitting your test can improve your response time, as you’ll be able to anticipate the types of hazards that you’re looking for and it will be less of an alien experience for you. Talk to your driving instructor about doing a driving lesson where you focus on hazards in order to best prepare you for this part of the test. 

Passing your theory test first time is easy when you put in the right practice.

Cannonball Run Circuit 2016: Run of a Lifetime

Tuesday, March 08, 2016

     I've seen real race cars in the past. I'm a self-confessed car enthusiast, although I rarely drive now because of trauma, my love for modified cars will always be in heart. To all my readers who are also race car fanatics, I want to share with you this article.

     Organized by six-time endurance run champion Joey Almeda, Cannonball Run Circuit 2016 brought together hundreds of car and motorbike enthusiasts, and put each participant through a gruelling 24-hour ride that traversed Northern Luzon, from Oxford Hotel, Pampanga to Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte.

     For the hundreds of participants, including car enthusiast/drivers Michael Sabido and Henry de Leon of Miata Club Philippines, Cannonball Run Circuit 2016 was the ultimate test of focus, endurance, and stamina. 

     TOTAL Excellium, the world’s leading fuel, was one of the proud sponsors of the premier motoring event. TOTAL Excellium, every driver’s trusted and reliable partner, wanted to prove that part of being a smart and responsible driver/ rider was ensuring that your vehicle is primed to conquer the road. 

     And with TOTAL, you will see the unique difference. Your engine will perform over and beyond expectation, maximizing fuel efficiency and delivering a smooth, clean run. Any race and road can be conquered. 

Crossing the Finish Line

     A second time participant, Henry de Leon, a car enthusiast since the age of 15, satisfied his need for speed by taking on the Cannonball 2016 with his Mazda Miata NB 1999-2000. 

     “The Cannonball event is a challenge for both man and machine. It requires physical preparation. You need the mental focus and quick thinking to navigate some of the hazardous roads along the way.” While the route provided all drivers scenic views of the country’s most beautiful landscapes, it also tested the mental and physical fitness of each participant.

     “You have to be 100% focused and committed. You have to clear your mind of anything that could distract and cloud your judgement as a driver,” shared 39-year-old Michael Sabido, who conquered the run on his Mitsubishi Strada 2015.

     “The experience was life-changing. It wasn’t only because I was able to finish it, but because I was able to share the experience and success with my brother, Mickz Sabido. We made history,” beamed Michael.

     In endurance runs such as Cannonball 2016, which give participants only 24 hours to accomplish the route, drivers work in tandem, taking on shifts as they conquer the open road. “It’s a partnership of trust. The whole run is very tiring, but the adrenaline is there!” he adds. Confidence in your co-driver, in your machine, and in your fuel provider is key to winning. 

     While a man can expend his energies for only a few hours, his body eventually giving way to tiredness, fatigue and sleep, thankfully, TOTAL Excellium delivers 24-hour continued performance, even on rough and strenuous roads. 

     According to the two experienced drivers, it is not enough to prepare yourself mentally, physically and emotionally for the race, your automobile must be equally in tiptop shape to overcome the extreme challenge. And for this particular race, the two drivers looked to the best fuel provider in quality and performance, TOTAL Excellium

TOTAL Service, TOTAL Efficiency

     Perfect for endurance races such as Cannonball 2016, TOTAL Excellium cleans and protects engines, delivers optimal engine performance, and has less carbon and harmful emissions compared to other competitor fuels. The result is a cleaner engine, which means greater performance from your car as it uses less fuel, lasts longer and produces fewer CO2 emissions. TOTAL Excellium is, indeed, the fuel of the new, modern driver, one that continues to deliver kilometer after kilometer.

     “Vehicle preparation is vital for this kind of event. An engine running for 24-hours non- needs to be fined tuned and be in exceptional shape. TOTAL Excellium fueled my car all throughout the journey. My engine as able to reach and maintain peak performance because of the high grade quality of TOTAL petroleum,” shared Henry. 

     Michael added, “Total Excellium is awesome. I only filled up a total of P2,500, and we covered 1,200 kms of hard driving. The fuel is really efficient and keeps the engine running without delay. My fuel is my engine’s base foundation, and even after 24 hours, the performance never faltered. That’s the kind of quality I look for in my fuel and oil.”
