Faults on my 3 driving tests

I have been asked 2 post my faults from my driving test and hopefully ppl will have 'words of wisdom' for me  wink  wink so here it goes!:

1st test -

Moved out in front of a car at a junction, which consequently had to slow down because of me.

Took too long on the Reverse bay park in the test centre.

2nd test-

Forgetting to signal when moving away from the side of the road into the flow of traffic (major for moving away safely)

not stopping quick enough during the emergency stop excercise, apparently I "stopped as if I was stopping at a set of traffic lights" according to the examiner!!!

3rd test-

speeding!! 40mph in a 30mph (soooo stupid i know!!!!!!!!!!!) and turning right at a junction, I edged forward, made traffic go round me and got a major - another really stupid stupid error!!

4th time lucky, hopefully!!

Re: Faults on my 3 driving tests

On your third test, was your edge forward a major to  minor road or emerging?

You also had loads of minors what were the majority of them for?

BTW I had a pupil fail last Monday for thinking he was in a 40 when like you he was in a 30. The rest of his sheet was clean so think how gutted he was!!!

Re: Faults on my 3 driving tests

On ym 3rd test, i was emerging from a minor road to a major road (in barnet) i was going 40 in a 30, thought the same as ure pupil, although I thought the road was national speed limit, didnt notice the houses that were set back!!

On my 3rd test - 13minors my minors were for:

control on reverse park -1
control on turn in road - 1
mirrors 3 (1-signalling) (1-change direction) (1-change speed)
necessary signals -1
use of speed -1 (1 major as well)
undue hestitation -1
turning right at junction -1 (major for observation at junction)
cutting corners - 1
positioning during normal driving -2
position/normal stops -1

so a bit all over the place really!!!

it was snowing during my test tho!!, probs put me off a bit!

Re: Faults on my 3 driving tests

I find that while you should take heed of your serious faults and learn from them they are usually things you wouldn't normally do. Stupid lapses in concerntration and I normally find that the place to concerntrate on are repeated minors. You're the exception that proves the rule. lol  As you said they are all over the place.

Whatever the weather is doing you can't let it put you off. When you pass your test you will be driving in all sorts of conditions and be able to adapt. 

I'm sure your ADI has a plan to prepare you for your next test. Talk it through with him/her. As your faults are spread over the whole sheet and not confined to two or three areas decide with him/her want areas you need to tackle first.

With propper planing you should sail through the next one.

Re: Faults on my 3 driving tests

I have been doin exactly that with my ADI, I have been back 2 where I failed, and so now I know excalty how to tackle the junction. If only I had blocked the whole junction, not part of it, then I would have been alrite and got away with it!

I am only having lessons every other week, and Ive got about another 4 before by test, although I am finding that my mistakes never are consistent, I seem to have silly things that I do each lesson, like yesterday, I kept forgetting to change right down the gear when slowing down, I changed straight from 4-1, Ive never done that b4!!, dont know y i did it know!!

There isnt 1 particular area that I find difficult, so I am just practising general driving every lesson until my test,

Thank you for your replies!

What area do you teach in?

Re: Faults on my 3 driving tests

Sophie, have you been taught to go down through each gear when coming to a stop? Although you cannot be failed for it if you do it properly, it is preferred when a pupil block changes down through the gears. When this is done effectively it is far easier.

Well done on passing your test, Sophie. Having said that, given the speed of replies on this forum, you'll probably read my message sometime during 2006!!

Congratulations anyway and safe and happy driving!   wink
