Driving Road Test Tips
Stop Intersection: While approaching an intersection that requires stopping, check traffic in front and behind, slow down smoothly at a steady rate and keep a 2 – 3 second gap to any vehicle in front.
If there is a vehicle in front, stop with a gap big enough to drive around the vehicle if necessary, you should be able to clearly see the bottom of the rear wheels of the car in front of you, if you can’t, you’re too close.
While stopped, monitor the rear view mirror for traffic behind and all around for pedestrians. When the light turns green check left, center and right before entering the intersection. Use both hands on the steering wheel while crossing and check the mirrors after resuming traffic speed.
Through Intersection: On approaching an intersection with a green light, check the mirrors for traffic behind. Before entering the intersection, look left, center and right for traffic and pedestrians posing a risk. If cross traffic presents a risk, slow down or cover the brake, keep a 2-3 second gap to any vehicle in front. After clearing the intersection, check the mirrors for traffic behind.
Left Turn: While approaching the intersection in the appropriate lane, in this case the left most lane, check for traffic in the front and rear view mirrors before braking. Signal left and slow down smoothly, keeping a 2-3 second gap to any vehicle in front.
If there is a vehicle in front waiting to turn, leave a car length in space and monitor the rear view mirror. While waiting keep the front wheel straight and check the traffic lights, traffic ahead and to the rear, check your mirrors and the cross walk to the left for pedestrians.
When it is safe to turn use both hands on the wheel and look where you want to go. Turn at a steady speed and once on the new road check the mirrors and the new traffic situation and accelerate to new traffic speed.
Right Turn: While approaching the intersection in the appropriate lane, in this case the curb lane, check traffic in front and behind before braking. Signal right and slow down smoothly keeping a 2-3 second gap to any vehicle in front. Before entering the intersection, scan left, center and right and try to make eye contact with any pedestrians that pose a problem.
Check blind spot right and with both hands on the wheel look where you want to go, turning at a steady speed. Once on the new road check the mirrors and the new traffic situation and accelerate to traffic speed. If the curb land is blocked or restricted, turn into the next available lane, check the rear view mirror and accelerate to the traffic speed.
Offset Left Turn – S Approach: At large intersections with large set medians use the S approach to increase visibility. Enter the intersection as little as possible by turning left and then right and line up with the wheel straight opposite the other turning lane, now it is possible to see traffic coming through the intersection this position makes turning left much less stressful.
