The written exam: not easy, but doable
Don't be mad if your driving instructor doesn't give the go-ahead for the driving test yet. He will only do that if he's sure you’re ready, which means he's acting in your own interest.
The computer-based test is very similar to the question sheets you have practiced on at home or during lessons. This means that the questions you will encounter are very similar, too. If you are well-prepared, they should give you no trouble at all.
Don't let the time limit throw you off your game. There's plenty of time to complete the whole test, so don’t blunder through the questions, but work attentively to solve them one by one. It's better to invest a few more minutes than to make careless mistakes.
Sooner or later, the big day will arrive!
Most probably, you will be a bit nervous. This is perfectly normal! Here are some things you should do to make sure everything goes smoothly:
- On the day of the test, be sure to arrive on time, well-rested and not in a rush. Bring your German ID or passport (essential for candidates from non-EU countries) because the examiner will have to establish proof of identity.
- Think positive: an optimistic attitude will make getting through the test much easier.
