Warning: This course is will not teach you how to drive. This course will tell you what you need to do in order to pass the test, but you need to practice in order to develop your skills. You must learn and practice these maneuvers before you take the test. If you don’t know how to drive, you should take some driving lessons.
This course is divided up into nine lessons. Each lesson has a four to twelve minute video, as well as a cheat sheet to help you practice. Some of the lessons will cover the major maneuvers that you have to perform on the test, such as parallel parking and backing around a corner. Other lessons will cover the good driving habits that increase your chances of passing.
The maneuvers we will cover include
Starting and merging
Parking on a hill
Backing around a corner
The good driving habits include
Using good vision
Knowing how to control the car
Signs, signals, and lanes
We’ll also talk about how the scoring works, and how you can make that work to your advantage
Two Important Hints
1. You can totally bomb on a couple of maneuvers and still pass the test. So if you’re really bad at something like parallel parking, don’t worry about it! It’s just one small part of the test. As long as you do well on the rest of the test, you’ll do fine.
2. Using good vision is crucial to passing your test. Good vision means that you look where you’re going. It means that you look over your shoulder to check your blind spot, and that you turn around and look out the rear window whenever you drive backwards.
Vision is scored in many different places on the test. Which means that if you’re not using good vision, if you aren’t looking where you’re going, you can lose points over and over again. All of that can add up to a failing score.
