Fault Symptom Fix
Make sure you are aware of the expiry of your vehicle WOF and Rego stickers and can clearly communicate the same to your testing officer as they are looking for clear verbal communication. Remember the correct position of the stickers on your vehicle. You have a great understanding of what is under the bonnet when it comes to oil, brake fluid and washer wiper fluid location. Remember it is important to fully go around your vehicle and check tires, any vehicle damage, lights are working and clearly demonstrate to your testing officer you know what to do. Internal pre-drive checks were good with you knowing your vehicle controls and having confidence where your hazard indicators are, indicators and washer stem is located.
Moving off in your vehicle is ok but you do need to practice a lighter foot technique as this will give you time to assess the road ahead in case you need to slow down. You managed to really master this as we neared the end of the lesson. You are a courteous driver and that will stand you in good stead.
Please ensure before we meet on our next lesson you practice your 3 point turn & remember to use your mirror and over-the-shoulder checks at all points of the turn, refrain from dry steering and use the maneuver to get into the correct position to reverse the direction you wish to travel away in. If you could also practice parallel parking that would be appreciated as we will cover these two maneuvers quickly in your next lesson to ensure you can carry them out fault-free.
Good Signal use, Moving off (straight) was well done although speed can be a factor as going too quickly, Stopping needs to be a little more gradual than heavy braking. Directional control was good, Moving off (at an angle) remember to check over your right-hand shoulder every time a few seconds before driving off. Head checks need to be worked on and good mirror use, Open Road Driving was good with good observation speed signs, 3 Point turns please practice. Roundabouts were good. Speed control is good on an open road.
