Five Reasons to Consider Blogging about Learning to Drive

When people find out I’m a blogger, the first thing they asked me is ‘what do you blog about?’. The list is endless, I’ve written many posts about how you can find ideas for blogging, but this is an important one.

Name any topic; there’s probably a blog about it. Over the past few years, blogging has boomed in popularity, with people writing about anything and everything from their kids to their jobs to their holidays. So, you might be wondering if there’s anything that you could blog about, too. As it happens, if you are learning to drive, blogging about it could be key to boosting your confidence behind the wheel. It might even help you pass your test! So, here’s five reasons to blog about your learner driver experience.

1. Get Support

The best thing about blogging is you can get your experiences, ideas, opinions, and stories out there in front of people who wouldn’t normally hear them. When you are learning to drive, blogging can be a fantastic way of getting encouragement from people all around the world. Whether it’s a simple ‘good luck’ or tips and advice that you can use during your test (check with your instructor first, just in case), there’s nothing wrong with a little extra support.

2.Motivate Yourself

Every learner driver has probably found themselves at a point where they wonder if they can do this; perhaps they’ve handled a road situation completely wrong or even failed their driving test. If you feel like this, you might want to give up – but documenting your experiences can help. Since you won’t want to let your readers down, you’ll be more determined than ever to overcome any obstacles.

NOTE: Telling your blog readers the date of your test is not advised; this will put you under pressure that you don’t need!

3.Learn Something New

Writing a blog is often just as much about learning new things as it is about sharing them. So, whilst you’re sharing your experiences with driving, you might stumble across similar blogs or even get talking to readers who have driving stories, facts, and more to share.

4.Pass Your Best Tips On

Blogging about your driving experience isn’t just great for getting tips from others; you can also share your best advice with your readers. Have you learned something whilst on the roads that you think would benefit other learners? Or, maybe you’ve stumbled across the free mock tests and driving tips at toptests.co.uk and want to spread the word.

5.Earn Some Extra Money

How good would it be if you could earn the money back that you’ve spent on driving lessons and put it towards your test, or even your first car? With a blog, you can – monetising your blog via Google AdSense or an affiliate marketing program, for example, is a great way to earn some extra cash to put towards your car savings. You never know – if you’re willing to invest time and effort into creating great content and optimising your blog for search, you could even turn it into a full-time job.

Blogging can be a great way to track your progress when you’re learning to drive. Just remember to give your driving instructor a shout-out when you pass your driving test!

    I wish I had blogged my driving journey, purely because I think it could be quite funny to look back on! There would be so much to learn between learners and drivers, it could really help, especially test tips!

    I wrote a blog post about learning to drive from a different perspective. I was teaching my 2nd teenager to drive and it was really stressing me out because it was a newer car than the one I had with the first teenager. Writing about it helped me de-stress and put less pressure on her and myself.

    I wrote, I think, one post about learning to drive and I’m glad I did. It’s quite therapeutic to write about your experiences behind the wheel!
