There’s a whole host of information out there when it comes to tips and tricks for passing your driving test, but one of the most important questions you might be asking right now is: What do I wear? It might not seem like such a big deal, but your clothes play a huge part in how comfortable you feel, which is important during your driving test. So, we’ve put together some tips and tricks for choosing an outfit that looks professional enough to take your test in but offers the best level of comfort.
1. Stretchy Waistbands Rule
When you’re under pressure to drive perfectly for around 45 minutes, the last thing that you need is the waistband of your jeans digging in around your middle. Maybe don’t go so far as to wear tracksuit bottoms or pyjamas to your test; stretchy jeans (or jeggings) are a good alternative since they look smart-casual but are comfy enough to sleep in (don’t do that on your test, though).
2. Consider the Weather
Before you decide what to wear, it’s a good idea to peek out of the window and see what the weather’s like, as you don’t want to be either too hot or too cold when taking your test. But, bear in mind that when you’re in the car, you’ll be able to turn the heating or the air-conditioning on depending on which you need. It’s a good idea to layer clothes; it’s likely that you’ll be taking a lesson with your instructor to get warmed up before the test, so you can use this time to gauge whether you should keep your sweater on or not.
3. Choose the Right Shoes
The wrong pair of shoes could mean disastrous results for your driving test! Seriously – you might not think about how much your shoes affect you when driving, but when you’re wearing the wrong pair, suddenly you will realise. If you’re currently having driving lessons now, it’s a good idea to find a pair of shoes that you’re comfortable driving in and then wear these for each lesson and eventually your test. That way, you won’t need to find out the hard way mid-driving that you’ve chosen the wrong footwear.
4. Look Professional
Ok – even if you turned up in a business suit, you’d probably still fail your test if you made serious errors. But, that doesn’t mean that there’s no need to give up on the opportunity to make a good first impression. Psychologically, first impressions about people hold a lot of value, and if your examiner has positive first impressions about you from the beginning, they’ll be a lot easier to deal with in the car. So, take the time to make sure that you smell fresh and don’t have bad breath, your hair is brushed, and you look confident and put together. Don’t forget that above all your examiner is looking for knowledge and ability; brush up on road signs, markings and more by taking some mock theory tests at Top Tests.
When choosing an outfit for your driving test, think professional but comfortable.
