Even when and if you make a mistake, don't panic nor worry too much whether will you fail or not, or how many marks deducted, just keep your mind focus on the driving and drive safely. Cause the moment if you are too concern about your marks, your concentration on the road will surely be affected and then it's likely you'll make more mistakes.
Yes, I agree not all testers will be that mean and some are actually quite friendly and don't pressure or hurry you unnecessarily.
Most of all, just remember one basic simple rule, be polite, be confident, and never argue with the tester.
Also congratulations to you
This usually happens when one turn slightly early. He is 'fortunate' to get only 10 points, cause usually, once hit kerb is an immediate failure already.
BTW, after got my licence and whenever I drive on the road now, I still will hit the kerb once in a while, especially when turning at unfamiliar places. Hehe...
hmm.. i'm 19 this yr..
ya. i agree that have to keep calm. there's much to get angry abt even in a L-plate car.
there was once i was turning right into a major road. i was in the 3rd lane with another right turning lane beside me. den while turning this honda stream cut into my lane. luckily i jam brake and stall the car. if not sure hit and spoil my day. my instructor keep telling me to calm down and say is not my fault. after i got the car going, both of us were cursing the honda.
btw, if i stall the car, do i need to shift to neutral then restart car (as stipulated in theory) or can i just leave it in gear with clutch in and restart? leave in gear restart faster, but will tester dock points?
But after you got your licence, and do experienced engine stall once a while, like I do (driving a manual car), I just step on my brake and continue to engage my first gear and re-start, then move off quickly before some impatience driving horn at me. Haha...
Anyway, many new drivers will immediately throw away what they had learn about safe driving during their lessons and started to drive recklessly. I had seen P plated drivers zig zagging between cars at high speed, all without signalling, some without turning on headlight at night (and they cars were black!), cutting lane, impatience towards slow moving heavy vehicles, tailgating etc etc..
For me, when stall, I never touch the gear. I clutch in n also, right foot on the brake. Then move off as usual but stall only appear during test. During practise, want to stall also no chance.
Only Sony device mostly, haha!
