From your perspective:
My teen is stressing out over her upcoming driving test. What are the most common mistakes she should watch out for?
– Mark H., Mill Creek
We checked driving-tests.org and were somewhat surprised at a couple of the mistakes that ranked in the top five: rolling stops, improper lane changes, steering with only one hand, reaching for a ringing cell phone or fiddling with the radio, and confusion at four-way stops.
On the day of the test, make everything as comfortable as it can be. Give your daughter plenty of practice driving the same car sheâ€™ll use for the test, especially on roads around the testing site â€“ noting speed limits, road signs, and potential hazards. Consider arriving early and taking a short walk to settle jitters before meeting with the examiner.
