To have the best chance of passing your driving test first time we need to take a look at what the driving examiner is going to be looking for on the day of your test and we will work back from that.
The test is an assessment of your driving ability, remember if the examiner passes you they believe you are good to drive without assistance and to do that you need to tick a few boxes.
Obviously you need to be a safe driver, so just exactly is safe?
The learning to drive syllabus has many parts and for whatever you do, whether it's parking on the wrong side of the road, experiencing on coming traffic at a cross roads or parking toy need to do the following.
Show the driving examiner you are in control of the car and aware of your surroundings. If they are confident you are managing the drive and keeping safe you will pass. Along the driving test you can pick up faults known as minors and as long as you don't pick up too many or 3 in one category you'll be fine.
There are also serious faults and that counts as a test fail. A serious fault is where you are no in control of the car or aware of your surroundings and you potentially put you and others in danger.
Did you know reversing up a kerb is not a serious fault as long as you were still safe and aware of your surroundings. So if there were no pedestrians, you were miles away from hitting anything and you just crept onto the kerb, as long as you recognise and correct you ought to be fine.
