Are you ripping up your L-plates today?

If you've just taken your driving test then there are only two possible outcomes. But whether you passed or failed, FirstCar has you covered with these top tips.

If you’ve just failed.

It might seem like the end of the world right now, but the important thing to remember is that more people fail their driving test than pass. Sure, you’ll be gutted to have spent time and money on a failed attempt, but you’re far from alone and you can use all your experience to improve your chances of passing next time. Here are FirstCar’s top tips to get you moving.

#1 – Get more private practice

If you’ve not done this already then speak to your parents or a family friend about taking you out to clock up extra road miles before your next test. Insurance is nowhere near as expensive as you may think and the DVSA recommends at least 20 hours of private practice before taking your test to boost your experience and confidence. Check out FirstCar’s guide to supervising a learner by clicking here and then get insurance quotes from our partners below.

Whether you’ve passed or failed, these FirstCar tips are for everyone!
