If you are living in Phillipines, getting your driver’s license from LTO can be a little bit intimidating and frightening. However, you don’t need to worry, with a few simple guidelines you will be able to pass the test and hit the road properly. Therefore, today I will provide you a step by step guide on how to pass your driving test. For more information, check and pass the test!

The first step is make sure to prepare for LTO Exam Written test. Make sure to get the latest LTO guidelines and read them properly. In the guidelines you will find everything that will be on the written and the actual driving test. Generally, you will learn about the basic rules of the roads, speed limits, how to handle accidents and many other rule you need to remember. Read slowly chapter by chapter and makes notes to make you remember. Since LTO Exam written test are available in Tagalog and English, you are able to choose these two language. However, I recommend you to take driving test in english because it is easier to understand.

The next step is prepare for the practical test. Since LTO test will test how much experience you have behind the wheel, make sure that you practice a lot behind wheels or you can take driving courses, through school or professional instructions. This way, you will be able to understand rules and restriction on the road and allow you to understand how to handle the driving test properly. Make sure to practice your driving on the test route, generally you will need to practice all the basic maneuvers on the test. The basic maneuvers are including stopping, starting, signaling, backing up, parking, obeying the speed limit and all traffic control signs and signals. Make sure to have confidence in your driving, don’t make jerky starts and stops and don’t be intimidated by the car or you will get your point reduced.  Make sure to understand about all street signs, hand gestures, when to pass, how to pull over for emergency vehicles and check all your mirrors correctly. Ask help from LTO Tagalog reviewer to check every knowledge you have and correct them properly.

Focus, Remember All Your Practice and Pass The Test!

The next step is go for the real practical test.  I recommend you to get your own car and make sure your car is ready for the test. Check the car conditions, make sure tires are inflated properly, lights all working, windshield wipers functional and make sure your feet reach the pedal properly. Don’t be late and bring all your required document. Then, relax and be friendly with the driving examiners. Recall every practice previously and ensure that you confidently remember what you need to do on the driving test. Don’t forget to adjust the seat for your comfort and signal the way you are going when parking. This way, you will be able to pass the LTO Driving Test and finally its time to hit the road and going on adventure!

Surviving in the Desert with Little Versus Desert City Survival in Dubai

I took desert survival training a long time ago. I spent a few months in a very hot desert place out in a southwestern state. I remember nights cold enough that there could be frost and temperatures that soared over 100 degrees during the day. There were temperature swings on some days that were equal to around 100 degrees as it could go from 30 to over 120 in hours. I drove a vehicle in the desert that was specially outfitted for the environment. It had AC, but it was awful to use in that you felt worse after shutting it off and getting hit in the face with the desert heat again.

I learned to enjoy the shady spots and to shut down almost all activity during the hottest parts of the day. I became like the little mammals that survived out here moving only in the short windows of time where it was not too hot or too cold. (more…)
