Be sure to make a complete, 100% stop at any signs. And scan the area (look both ways) before moving again.
Make sure to make a complete stop at a red light before turning right. Also give the intersection a good scan before moving again, once moving, never switch lanes in an intersection.
Pulling over, changing lanes, pulling into traffic, merging into traffic, and making right turns should always be done following a shoulder check. Ensure that nothing is hidden in the vehicle's blind spot before making any of these moves.
Regardless of being slow or unsure of their intentions, the pedestrians have the right of way.
Be sure to practice your turns. Cutting a corner or taking it too wide is not acceptable. Mastering the turns comes through practice, so it’s good to make time to do so.
Be sure to know your hand signals. You may find yourself in a situation with burnt-out signal lights on your vehicle and may need to use them.
Make a mental note of the speed limit for the road you are on and don’t go over. It may be tempting when merging onto a freeway or faster roadway, but never pass over the limit.
These can easily be the downfall of a driving test. Even going 1 km over the limit through a school zone will be noted as speeding.
A common maneuver is done when behind the wheel. But don’t underestimate parking; it does take practice and patience. When parallel parking, know the size of your vehicle and be aware of your surroundings. When parking the vehicle on a hill or incline of any kind, it is wise to make use of the parking brake.
When driving, you can be exposed to many new areas of the road. Try to get out as much as possible in new areas to practice and get comfortable driving in various different areas.
Look at the skills you have picked up and the rules you have learned while driving. Getting too nervous and cautious can lead to making mistakes. If you happen to make a mistake, don’t get distracted by it and make more. Be confident in your driving when behind the wheel.
