1. Practice makes perfect.
The more experience you get driving in different conditions, the more prepared you’ll be for your road test. Practice for the knowledge test on icbc.com.
2. Watch your speed.
The most common reason for failing a road test is speeding. Never go over the posted speed limit.
3. Keep your distance.
Your driver examiner will want to see you keeping a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you. Two seconds is about right on most city streets.
4. Observation is key.
Poor observation is the second most common reason for failing a road test. Make sure you’re always checking for potential hazards.
5. Make full stops.
A common driver error is failing to come to a complete stop at stop signs, but rather a rolling stop. This is especially important at busy intersections.
