Feeling unprepared for drivers ed? But you want to walk into the class like you own the road, and life in general? Follow these simple steps:


1. Deep breaths: be ready to calm your road rage.

Although you will probably be the butt of most of the fury. Sorry newcomers, it's just the name of the game. Don't fret, you will soon find out very shortly why patience runs thin on the road.

2. Practice your license photo pose.

You want a photo that you can look back at and proudly show your friends when you're 20 - "Yea, that was my prime."

3. Get your permit.

This may sound obvious, but you need a permit to start driving. (Just in case you were driving under the influence of ignorance before.)

4. Bring your permit.

Not only do you need to get a permit but you also need to have it ON you for your drives. This means you shouldn't leave the house without it. So tie it to a string or tape it to your pocket. Wear it as a necklace. Staple it to the back of your shirt. Just do whatever you need to do to remember to bring your permit to every single drive.

5. Learn the basics of driving.

This means you should know things like you only drive with one foot. If you didn't know that yet, stay off the road please and thank you.

6. Master the art of outsmarting and spotting the cops.

7. Get comfortable shoes for your drives.

Don't pull a Cher from Clueless...

8. Bring snacks for class.

...not the road. Multitasking is an art, and no matter how much we like to think so, we are not all artists. Sorry, Chipotle but that burrito will have to wait. 

9. Learn how to fake it 'til you make it.

Find your driving poker face and practice it in the mirror. Confidence is everything, no matter how questionable your driving skills are.

10. Have the parental guided freak out drives BEFORE you start drivers ed.

Back seat drivers not welcome.

11. Master your driver attitude.
