Top 10 Reasons For Failing The Driving Test

1. Observation at junctions - ineffective observation and judgement


2. Reverse parking - ineffective observation or a lack of accuracy


3. Use of mirrors - not checking or not acting on the information


4. Reversing around a corner - ineffective observation or a lack of accuracy


5. Incorrect use of signals - not cancelling or giving misleading signals


6. Moving away safely - ineffective observation


7. Incorrect positioning on the road - at roundabouts or on bends


8. Lack of steering control - steering too early or leaving it too late


9. Incorrect positioning to turn right - at junctions and in one way streets


10. Inappropriate speed - travelling too slowly or being hesitant


People who have failed tests on the following faults may benefit from driving an automatic.


Moving off under control - Faults causing rough moving away, stalling or rolling back on hills.

Usually caused by poor balance or co-ordination of clutch, accelerator and handbrake.


Gear Faults - Failure to select, wrong selection, coasting, looking down at the gear lever or poor steering control whilst gear changing.


Manoeuvres - Control. - Failure to maintain co-ordination with foot controls to keep the vehicle moving slowly enough to obtain the steering accuracy required.


Progress - Avoiding undue hesitancy. - Waiting when it is safe to proceed at junctions and roundabouts. When caused by lack of ability to move away quickly enough or the lack of confidence in being able to move away without stalling even though a gap is clearly safe to proceed in.


Using an Automatic vehicle basically eliminates the above faults.
