Know These Secrets Before You Embark On A Road Test In Ontario

Preparing for a road test in Ontario will always begin with practice. Get accustomed with the various technical aspects of driving, drive as much as you can, learn the rules of the road, how to deal with traffic and be very familiar with the road signs. Do not presume you would always have someone more experienced with you to prompt or guide you with the signs and relevant.

After you have spent enough days and nights honing your driving, you must prepare for the road test in Ontario. The theory test is also imperative but let us confine our discussion to the practical test. Here are some secrets you should know to do well at a road test in Ontario.

  • Try to be comfortable in the car

    Take your time to get accustomed with the interior, the seat height, the inclined or upright position, the rear view mirrors, the seat belt and everything that you need to check. Just review everything to ensure it is alright to get started. You should not be unnerved. To be calm, you must first be physically at ease. Only then will you find the physical act of driving comfortable. If you have a car that has a tilt or telescoping wheel, then adjust it properly for the terrain or your height, perhaps both. If it is already adjusted, make sure it is ideal for you.

  • Do not be too slow and certainly do not be fast
  • You may know this that driving at speeds lower than the permissible limit is unacceptable, just as over speeding is. Try to find the right speed given your driving expertise. When there is a speed limit of 60 km/hr, it is best to stay between 40 km/hr and 50 km/hr. Inching closer to sixty will not be wise as you will risk over speeding and slowing down to 25 km/hr or even 30 km/hr will put you at risk of breaching the lower limit.

  • All modern cars have a handbrake, which is often called parking brake by some
  • It is not an emergency brake as some people may tell you. While the brake is your best friend during emergencies, it is also a perennial friend when you are driving up a slope or down a flyover, when there is a sloping terrain and you need to halt or even when you are trying to check your speed quickly.
