    Re: Driving road test...

    Hi friends

    Passed the road test by god's grace:)

    They checked the following:
    If am signalling when necessary.
    Stopping at the stop sign,smoothly.
    Turning smoothly.
    Maintaining speed limit.
    Acceleration.
    How i'm applying the break.
    Perpendicular Parking & backing up.
    Obeying the signs.
    Right of way to the oncoming vehicle & pedestrians.
    Downhill Parking.
    Looking over the shoulder when necessary & checking the mirror often.
    If am alert all the time.

    My request is :Do practice all types of parking - Parallel,Reverse,Three-point turn& Two-point turn.It depends upon the instructor.Some may ask & some may not ask.Signally is very important while doing these turns & parking. I hope this will help you too.

    Hi Priya,
    Thankyou very much for sharing your experience. I wrote my written test on last friday and planning to take drive test soon . Did you remember on which route you gave drive test? Is it mandatory to learn parallel parking?Is perpendicular parking same as normal parking?

    Hi Rekha

    Seeing you after a longtime!
    Congrats on passing your written test:)
    Is perpendicular parking same as normal parking?
    Yes.
    Is it mandatory to learn parallel parking?
    Yes.Your Instructor might/might not ask you.We do parallel parking in few places.So,please learn it.
    Did you remember on which route you gave drive test?
    I took my test in Lombard (DMV),Westmore Meyer's Road.I think Jackson street,Addison Ave,Madison street(nearby DMV).,were the areas I covered..Parking test was held inside the DMV.
