2 – Junctions

5 – Move off safely
6 – Steering Control
Poor steering control is one the reasons why pupils fail their driving test. You need to develop a uniform way of turning. Steering control is the big one here, steering to soon or too much is mainly what happens but some times people steer too late.
The main reasons to fail your driving test are:
Swerving, swinging to the right or left on your turns, swinging too far out into the street when pulling out of a parking spot, an apparent loss of control of the vehicle when doing certain manoeuvres, sloppy steering and poor hand position on the steering wheel.

8 – Reverse Park
9 – Respond to signals at traffic lights
10 – Junctions, Turning right
11 – Progress
Making progress is another major issue on the driving test, it is where you take too long to pick up speed when joining a new road, try and keep up with the flow of traffic.
