The manoeuvres you are also likely to get on your driving test

Manoeuvres For The Practical Driving Test

During your practical driving test you will need to perform at least one manoeuvre. This could be either parallel parking, a turn in the road, bay parking or reverse to the left. Hence, we have tutorials on all the manoeuvres you may get on the day. However, you will not know which one you will have to perform until you are on test. So, you need to know how to do each one. Obviously, this will help you in your day-to-day driving after you pass the test.

There is also a possibility that you need to perform an emergency stop on your driving test. So we have listed that below together with a detailed tutorial. Also, while you are here for the reverse routines, we have a tutorial on straight line reversing.
