Driving Test and Potholes

It is almost april 2010, but a lot of the UK roads still have potholes from the january snow driving chaos and this needs to be taken into consideration while being assessed by the dsa examiner.

Things to avoid if you want to pass the driving test when on roads with potholes during your practical car assessment.

1. Don't swerve suddenly to avoid potholes, you need to use MSM before changing direction. If you are scanning the road ahead, you should be able to see the potholes early or notice the action of other road users avoiding them.

2. Avoid breaking suddenly as well without checking your mirrors, as there could be a close following vehicle behind you, and non of your actions during the driving test should affect other road users, and this includes pedestrians.

Don't fail the DSA driving test because of potholes on the road which the local council has not fixed!

Important! If you are not learning to drive with an instructor, it is important that BOTH you and the person teaching you to drive read The DSA official test guide, this book will greatly increase your chance of passing the driving test without spending too much money on lessons.
