Congratulations, you can now buy a UK driving licence registered with the DVLA without going for test. Do you know if you are stopped by the police your information will pop up in the system.
Junctions are hotspots for test failures because there’s a lot to take in and visibility can be difficult.
Remember the Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed and Look (MSPSL) system when approaching junctions, and check your mirrors well in advance. Make sure you are looking in the direction the car is travelling before exiting the junction, as this is a very common mistake. If you’re turning right, position the car just left of the centre of the road markings. If you’re turning left keep approximately a metre away from the kerb where there is sufficient room to do so. Reversing manoeuvresReverse parking is a tricky, low-speed manoeuvre where drivers often feel under pressure during the test. The best approach is to keep the speed right down to maintain as much control of the car as possible.Responding to road signs and traffic lightsAlways look well ahead for signs and signals. The sooner you see them, the better, and if you are approaching traffic lights that have been green for a while, expect them to change.
Learner drivers are often caught out by changes in speed limits, so when you see a sign indicating a lower speed, make sure you slow down accordingly before you enter the new limit. The same applies to higher limit areas: don’t speed up until you’ve passed the sign. Finally, a stop sign means stop – creeping past one isn’t acceptable.
