I've managed to book an earlier test date which is in mid October. Have been monitoring
the test date at the website for the past few days, very tiring
I have problem turning the steering wheel 1 round to the right or left without looking at the
steering wheel...it always not a full 1 round or I turn too much become more than 1
round...it becomes a serious problem for me esp. when come to parking, out of alignment
most of the time...any experts can help to enlighten me ?
Thanks in adv !!
Yesterday was my 3rd attempt.. failed again. I'm taking at Ubi. Damn difficult to pass.. Sigh.
If you are really good at parallel parking with a 3/4 turn of the steering wheel, but the manual says you should do a full turn, what would you do? And do you think all cars have the same steering characteristics?
I notice that in this thread, a lot of attention is paid to small technicalities, e.g. how to release the clutch, when exactly to shift gears, etc. I would argue it's infinitely more important to focus on road safety. Stalling the engine is mildly embarassing and may hurt your ego, but an accident may result in physical harm.
Here's a true story (although admittedy I may not remember all the details accurately) that happened a few years ago in Germany. In poor visibility, a BMW driver relied on the instructions of his fancy GPS navigation system, which told him to turn. The car ended up in a river, as the GPS didn't tell him that after turning, he had to wait for the ferry to arrive.
If the driving centres really emphasize blindly following standard operating procedures, they are IMHO in need of a big whack with the clue stick.
