Maidstone – Reverse Exercise

The driving test from Maidstone will involve one or reverse manoeuvers. As the test centre has a car park with marked bay, there is a good possibility of being asked to carry out the bay park exercise right at the beginning of the test. If the bay park exercises not requested, the driving examiner may ask you to carry out the parallel Park or the stop on the right manoeuvre on a public road. Whichever manoeuver you are requested, it is most important remember the observations, before during the manoeuvre is vital. More learner drivers fail on the observations rather than the manoeuvre itself.

Manual or Automatic Intensive Driving Lessons

It’s easier to pass your driving test in a week by taking an automatic car compared to a manual. This is because you don’t have the extra task of changing gears, especially on approach to junctions such as roundabouts. This, in turn, means that you will have more time to focus on the speed and observations on the approach to such junctions. Once you’ve passed your driving test in an automatic, you will be restricted to driving only automatics. However, you are most welcome to upgrade to a manual license by retaking and passing another test.
