What are the most common mistakes that people make in their driving test?
The most common mistakes made by learner drivers taking their test is not checking mirrors, not being observant at junctions and not responding to signals properly.
“Usually, mistakes are made with observational things,” explains Nick Smith, co-founder of Gold Driving Academy in Dorset. “Their mind is taken up with control of the car, and so they don’t see things, they don’t check around the car before moving.”
John King, from PASS driving school in Kent, agrees. “The mirror and signals, that’s the first thing that goes out the window. The next thing that goes is speed and approach. They come up to junctions a little too fast, they brake a little too hard.”
