Common mistakes and tips for success

Signalling

Don’t just flick your indicator and drive off, you must signal for at a least 5 seconds before leaving a parking space or moving from a kerb.  

Blind spots

Drivers often forget to check their left-hand side blind spot when turning left off wide roads.   You need to check your blind spots and mirrors when merging, changing lanes and during your manoeuvres. 

Stop signs

 Stopping behind the line at traffic lights and then creeping forward does not count – you have to stay behind the line.   You can move forward at stop signs when the view may be obscured, but only after you've come to a complete stop. 

Parking manoeuvres

One word – practice! They all get easier with practice. Practice in different locations - don't always reverse park in the same street and on the big day don't over-think the manoeuvres
