We know you are excited to get your driving license. This excitement can easily turn into nervousness as your RTA road test comes closer. You are anxious about how it will turn out. Fingers crossed? You bet. Yet, you need not have anxiety about this one. If you keep a few things in mind, you will do fine. Here we have compiled a list of 5 most common mistakes you should avoid during a driving test in the UAE.

Let’s get to it.

1: Letting Fear Rule You

The biggest mistake you can make during a driving test is to let fear overpower you. Having a little fear about how the test will be is natural. But if you find yourself overwhelmed by the fear, then it’s counterproductive. Fear ruins efforts, and you are more prone to make mistakes when you are fearful. Remind yourself that it’s just a test of driving and not something to overly stress over. Just relax, sit back, and confidently give your test.

2: Wasting Time Unnecessarily

When you are nervous, you waste time unnecessarily. You may take extra time to adjust your seat and car mirrors. You think this makes you feel extra careful. It does not. Examiners find this behavior a strong indicator of low confidence. Don’t waste time and get going with the test directly.

3: Carelessly Changing Lanes

One important criterion that examiners consider is how you change lanes. If you are not careful while changing lanes, you are likely to fail the driving test. Make sure you make use of all the car mirrors – left, right, and rear. Change lanes only if the road is clear. Taking too much time in deciding whether to change lanes or not will result in failure. Make quicker decisions.

4: Not following examiner’s instructions

One thing you need to understand is that you must follow the examiner’s instructions during the test. Sometimes the examiner may ask you to break a rule (or you think it is so). While it may seem obvious not to break the rule, understand that the examiner is more knowledgeable about the rules than you are.

5: Stopping or slowing the car unnecessarily

Do not stop or slow down the car when there is no need to do so, it is very important that you don't panic brake! Stopping suddenly or slowing down suddenly without checking your rearview mirrors may lead to road accidents.
