  1. When you start your road test, make sure you are calm and attentive. Keep on going straight and do not make any right or left turn untill examiner ask you to do it.
  2. Fasten all your seat belts.
  3. Keep on driving attentively and do not try to talk with the examiner and make sure you understand the examiner instructions clearly.
  4. You keep on driving safely, effectively and smoothly. Follow the speed sign posted on the road. If there is no speed sign posted then speed limit will be 50 Km on the city streets and roads. Most commonly speed limit for the residential streets are 40 Km.
  5. Your observation is very important and critical during the road test. Check your mirrors every 5 to 8 seconds and when you are approaching at an intersection or railway crossing, make sure you check and look  to your left, right and left again to  make sure nobody is shooting through the intersection or breaking a red light.
  6. Make sure keep a good following distance behind the vehicles in front of you. Try to avoid the unnecessary lane changes. When you are approaching a stop sign or red light, make a full stop and do not make a rolling stop.
  7. Keep your both hands on the steering wheel and do not drive with one hand or never palm steering.
  8. Never accelerate through at an intersection and be ready to stop if the light changes in to amber.
  9. Follow the traffic control devices like stop sign's, traffic lights, pedestrians's signal, yield sign etc and be very careful close to the school zones and  school crossings.
  10. During the road test drive in the right lane. Don't change the lane untill examiner ask you to do it or if the lane is block, lane is ending or any break  down vehicle is there. Then you will change the lane automatically and after that you will have to come back into your initial lane.
  11. The use of the brakes and acceleration during the road test must be smooth, gradual and gentle.
  12. Be very careful for the pedestrians at the intersections  specially when you are making turns.
  13. When  you change  the lane, make sure check your mirror, signal to your intention and check your blind spot, because blind spot is the key of your life. Never ever change the lane without mirror, signal and blind spot check.
  14. If you make any mistake during your road test , don't be nervous, afraid and upset because examiner only want to make sure that you are safe and defensive driver and will not fail you for minor mistake untill you do any violation of law or hit the curb or another vehicle.
  15. Do not ask any help in difficult situation. Use your own observation and skils. Try your best as much as you can do. The meaning of road test is to make sure that you are very defensive, observer driver, you know the rules of the road and you are not danger to other road users or public.
