Speed, Signal & Blind Spots

Passing the driving test requires a lot of driving practice. If you are under 25 you need to do at least 120 hours of driving.


When practice making sure you understand road signs, signals completely. Please, read this Service NSW Driving Test handbook before your driving test. Link here:

To understand the road rules completely including giveaway rules is very important.


Speed the the common problem students fail the driving test. Making sure not to go over the speed limit making sure you have a good vision at least 5 seconds. Scan the road to see the speed warning signs before you turning into a new to you are going to. If you go 1 km over the limit it is considered as immediate fail. Don’t drive too slow, as it will impact the traffic flows. Say, if it is 50 km speed limit, driving say, less than 30 km is not okey (on a good traffic/ weather condition one should not let other cars slow down.


Signal is another issue can not be taken lightly. Making sure give proper direction signals. There is no specific timeframe when and how long to give signals. The main purpose of signaling is to let everyone and road users aware the direction you are taking. Better to give signals earlier than late.


Blind spot checks one of the most common problems students tend to miss. You only can miss 2 blind spot checks and 2 signal errors. If you miss three observation checks and three signal errors including head checks it is an immediate fail. Making sure to turn your head over your shoulder completely when turning left, right, change lanes, moving off, parkings. please remember to look back window (not rear mirror) and turn your head back to check as is considered blind spot when cars are being reversed and going back.
