Tips to know how to pass your practical test -

Part 1 - top tips and the emergency stop

• On completing a manoeuvre, if the examiner asks if you are happy with where you have finished, and you can make some adjustments. You can always ask your driving instructor to teach you how to ensure to finish in the right place and how to make those adjustments.

• Another essential tip is the "2 second rule". The observation is a necessity when doing the manoeuvres. You should not look in the same place for long, and the examiner will check how you react to potential hazards. You need to react most safely.

• Also, while doing an emergency stop, it is important to remain in control. Your reaction must be swift. You should be able to feel the seatbelt working to keep you in your seat; you do not want it to feel like you’re just pulling up. You must make sure you remain in control of the engine and do not stall the car – remember to use the break and clutch properly.

Part 2 - Two parking manoeuvres

Reverse parking into a bay
Reverse parking in the bay is all about safely parking the car in an available bay with smooth control of the car. It helps to have reference points in the car to use as easy turning points and get an idea of how much you need to turn to fit into the required space.

Parallel parking
For parallel parking, you must have smooth control of the car and have different reference points for this manoeuvre. Ensure to turn properly and park safely and correctly.

Have an all-around observation to stay safe and pay attention over the shoulders, check the side mirrors for the white lines and ensure your car is not going into the bay. Practice makes perfect and following these tips, and the advice of the driving instructor, helps you to pass your driving test even better.

Part 3

Reverse Right

This process helps to practice reverse driving, to help learn how to drive with two car lengths back by pulling up on the right side of the road. There are 3 parts of this manoeuvre - pulling up on the right-hand side of the road, reversing for 2 car lengths and again joining traffic. It is important to ensure that the learners are taught how to perform this movement safely and rightly. You might be asked to complete this during the driving test. The examiner ensures that you learn how to safely move across the path of continuous traffic & park within a reasonable distance of the kerb.

Part – 4
Forward bay Parking

Forward bay parking might seem easier and more convenient if compared to reverse bay parking. When you are ready to leave, you will need to go out of that, reverse out of that space and potentially into traffic and pedestrians.

You can always choose a bay that has the cars parked on either side or a side that is clear of vehicles on both sides. This will help you to make proper observations while reversing far easier. Throughout a manoeuvre, keeping the car very slow is advised. This will help you to remain accurate while observing & dealing with potential hazards around you.

Another important factor to follow is to look into the mirrors and around the vehicle continuously while driving. You need to check if any cyclists, pedestrians, or any other vehicles and stop accordingly. Then the driver needs to wait until the road is clear and others have moved out of the way before continuing further. Continue & check all-round to ensure that it is safe to move forward.

Reference points for forward bay parking area – 

  • Evaluate and determine what parking bay can fit your vehicle (check the width & depth)
  • Slowly place your car on the left-hand side of the parking bay & find your reference point
  • Maintain a space enough for your vehicle to enter the bay
  • You must check your mirrors & blind spots for the safety of other road users
  • Don’t forget to put the indicator on the signal before parking
  • When the way is clear, move quickly, put a full lock right on the steering wheel and bend slowly into the bay.
