How to Pass a Road Test in New York

7 Common Mistakes to Avoid During Your DMV Road Test

Driving Too Slow

>>sometimes, you can be so busy worrying about speeding that you end up going too slow. But driving slowly can be just as much of a safety hazard as speeding. If cars are passing you, it’s time to speed up.

Forgetting About Your Mirrors

<<>> checking a blind spot every time you pull out into the road and before turning the steering wheel, exaggerate a little.

Aggressive Braking

<<>> your braking should be gradual and comfortable. Be aware of how much time you need to come to a stop, and brake accordingly. A stop sign is your signal to make a full and complete stop.

Not stopping at stop signs

<<>> always come to a complete stop behind the stop line at stop signs and red lights.

Making a right turn without yielding to pedestrians

<<>> pedestrians always have the right of way. Pay attention to crosswalks and anticipate pedestrians, especially when you’re turning.

Parallel Parking

<<>> if your state requires demonstration of parallel parking abilitythe main factors to watch out for are not to hit other cars or to run over the curb. It is fine to touch the curb, but don’t roll over it. Even if you get points taken off for not successfully parallel parking your car, as long as you don’t hit a car or the curb too forcefully, you should still pass your test. Look back over your right shoulder.

Confusion at all way stops

<<>> it is simple: whichever vehicle stopped at the intersection first has the right of way. “First Come First Served”.
