At an intersection controlled by a Stop sign:
I had a student fail his Restricted Test at Manukau Driver Test Center
2 Critical Errors:
1 - Vehicle Position: Leaving the car park, first left turn too wide (wrong side of the road)
2 - Signalling: When parallel parking, failed to indicate out, after parking.
Main faults during the simulated test and driving lessons:
1 - Signalling: out of roundabouts / 3 point turns / Parallel Parking.
2 - Searching: more searching required at intersection.
3 - Shoulder Check / Blind Spot Check ( always check whenever moving half the width of the vehicle )
-> too wide when passing parked cars and not taking into account oncoming vehicles .
-> positioning at roundabouts
-> positioning at left turns
Changes To Parallel Parking Marking Outline (April 2013)
The change in the wording clarifies, that the student has 4 movements to park the vehicle.
The first movement starts when they start reversing backwards into the car park.
The minimum number of 2 movements has been removed as this was also misleading (so there is now no minimum number of movements listed anymore).
I had a student fail his restricted manual driving test at Manukau Driver Test Center today. He had 2 Critical Errors.
Reason for failure:
1. Stalled vehicle during a left turn on GSR
2. Speed Limit - Exceed speed limit by 5km (60km zone -> went to 65km for 5seconds)
