Check off all the important points before operating the vehicle.
Adjust your mirrors, your seat position, steering wheel position, and of course fasten your seatbelt before leaving the parking lot. This will indicate to your administrator you are skilled enough to drive a vehicle.
Keep your hands on the wheel!
Keep your hands on the wheel at all times when you are operating the vehicle. Your goal should be for the administrator to feel safe. Keeping your hands on the wheel is a good habit when driving even after you’re licensed. The proper hand position is at nine and three when holding the steering wheel. If you drive one-handed at the twelve o’clock position you will fail your test.
Stop at stop signs and properly change lanes.
Be sure to stop completely at every stop sign or lighted stop sign. Don’t stop quickly and roll through the stop sign. Take your time and make sure you stop completely, you can lose a large number of points for running a stop sign. You can also get a ticket if you do this as a licensed driver. When changing lanes, make sure you turn your signal on, look in your side view mirror over your shoulder, and if it is safe then you can go. Once you’re in the lane you can turn your signal off. When approaching a yellow light at a lighted stop sign be sure to slow down.
Practice parallel parking.
This is a very important part of your driving test. Most beginners fail this part of their driver’s test. Ensure you are prepared for this segment by locking down the steps before taking the test. Be sure to avoid hitting the traffic cones and check both mirrors when backing up to pass the test. Should you run over traffic cones while parallel parking or during your driving test you will lose points. Practice using traffic cones at home if possible when learning to parallel park.
Being attentive and showing you’re paying attention will go a long way when taking your driver’s test. Drive the speed limit and practice as much as possible before taking the test. For more information on our company and how we keep the roads safe, visit our website at trafficsafetyga.com.
