Hints for the Florida Driving Test
Some of the things to expect are sticking points OR tasks which most new student drivers find difficult to master.
Vehicle Not Passing Inspection
- This is the most commonly overlooked part of a road test. Failing to pass the initial vehicle inspection will keep a new driver from even beginning the road test. The vehicle inspection is important, not just to satisfy the examiner but to ensure that your vehicle is safe enough to be on the road with other vehicles.
- You may have to show your ability to successfully park your vehicle both in a standard diagonal or straight in parking space and a parallel parking spot. Both take a lot of practice because, if you should hit the cones that signify the position of another car, you will automatically fail the test.
Slowing Down and Braking
- Waiting too long to brake will cause wear and tear both on the brakes themselves and on the driving examiner. Know when to start braking so that you can smoothly bring your vehicle to a stop at exactly the right place. You will probably also have to demonstrate your ability to make an emergency stop.
Not Stopping Completely at a Stop Sign or Stop Light
- This is probably the most common reason for failing a road test. Drivers who think they have stopped for a stop sign but are actually still slowly moving forward. When you have to stop for a stop sign or a red light, stop completely! To make sure you have stopped, once you think the car has come to a complete stop, press down even harder on the brake pedal and count to four before releasing the brakes to proceed.
- A part of safe driving operation is letting other motorists know what your intentions are. Always use your turn signal not only when you are turning a corner but when you are changing lanes and even when you turn into or back out of a parking spot.
