After a failed driving test you have to wait at least 2 weeks before you can retake the driving test again which gives you more time to practice.

Driving examiners do not fail you on purpose as driving examiners do want you to pass and move on to the next driver they are testing.

You can refuse a driving examiner but you can't take your driving test or pick and choose the driving examiner but you can always go to another driving exam location to get a new driving examiner.

Driving test examiners look for your ability to drive safely and to know the traffic laws and signals.

During a driving test the examiner will look for your ability to drive through an intersection, backing up, parallel parking, stopping at stop signs, right hand turns, changing lanes, and some driving test examiners may also test your ability to safely drive on the freeway and merge onto freeways from on ramps or merge off on on ramps.

Driving examiners cannot change their mind unless there are circumstances that would require a change in the normal test.

A drivers examiners decision is most often final until you take another test later and pass.

You can impress your driving examiner by practicing before the driving test and getting confidence and also being cautious and open with the examiner.

Also when when the driving examiner calls your name, walk over to them, be friendly and greet them.

Stay calm and focused: Nervousness is normal, but try to stay calm and focused during the test.

Driving test examiners work from a standardized checklist that guarantees each driver is comfortable, and safe, operating his or her vehicle on public roads.

You may have to take the test again if you are unable to perform some of the major items on the checklist.

Driving examiners do most often know how many times you've failed but not all of them will know especially if you're in a busy location.

You should talk to your driving examiner if it helps you but don't let it distract you.

A driving examiner will let you know if you should not talk and focus more on the driving exam and you can also just be quiet and focus on the driving.

The driving examiner will not think you're rude for not talking to them while driving.

Some driving examiners are so rude because they have a hard job and deal with a lot of people that are sometimes bad drivers.

Over time the driver examiners can become really rude as they begin to hate their job and just want the day to be over.

It's nothing personal against you so just do your best to pass the drivers exam and it will be over.

The method that will help you to center your vehicle in a lane is to avoid looking at the road directly in front of your vehicle and steer your vehicle while looking far ahead where you want your vehicle to go and the car will then keep itself centered in the lane.

To stay in lane when turning keep the vehicle positioned in the lane and then move from the left lane into the left lane if you are turning left or are moving from the right lane to the right lane when you are turning right then obviously the sharper the curve then the slower you are gonna have to go.

To make sure you are in the right lane check your rear view mirror and if it looks centered then you are in the right lane.

Another way to make sure you're in the right lane is to check your side view mirrors for how close you are to the line on both sides.

It will not take long to get used to how “being centered in the lane” appears when just looking straight ahead.

To maintain your lane while driving keep your focus head and you should focus on things far away from you.

It is easy to move away from the center of the lane if you keep looking close by.

Focus on the objects on the horizon before your vehicle.

The lane position you should be in most of the time is the center of the lane which is just right with a little space of cushion on both sides.

When changing lanes you should turn on your turn signal ahead of time before you plan to make the lane change.

This will allow other drivers to back off enough to allow you into the lane.

Check your mirrors and look over your shoulder to look for blind spots and check for merging traffic.

Change the lanes when safe to do so and then turn your turn signal off.

The most important thing when changing lanes is to use your turn signal, check your mirrors and check for blind spots by looking over your shoulder.

The lane that most accidents occur is the right lane because vehicles are merging, slowing down and accelerating frequently.

When you drive in the right lane and lose focus or fail to check for blind spots then accidents can occur frequently.

When changing lanes you should never move out too early, never slow down before changing lanes, never forget to activate or deactivate the turn signals.

You should also never cross the center line in an intersection when changing lanes and always check blind spots by looking over your right or left shoulder.

Lane discipline is the practice of driving within the boundaries of a designated lane, as defined by broken or solid white lines on the road.

It involves following the rules of the road and staying within the designated lanes while driving.

Lane discipline is sometimes a minor driving fault and not always a serious driving fault although in some cases it can be a serious driving fault if you don't maintain at least some good lane discipline.

To discipline a lane you position your vehicle in accordance with the edge of the road also known or curb and to also keep just left of the center lines of the road.

It is also essential that you stay within the white markings on the road.

Some of the lane discipline rules include.

Always be considerate, show a caring attitude, watch out for others, show good road side manners.
Be sure to keep your vehicle always in the center of your lane, don't hang to the left or right side of your lane.
On highways with multiple lanes you should keep to the right and allow faster cars to use the lanes left of you.

You can show and improve your lane discipline by planning ahead and moving into the correct lane in good time.

Adapt the road position to suit the road width and traffic conditions.

keep a safe position during normal driving, especially around bends.

Take up the correct position on a one-way street.

A lane is part of a roadway that is designated to be used by a single line of vehicles to control and guide drivers and reduce traffic conflicts.

Most public roads (highways) have at least two lanes, one for traffic in each direction, separated by lane markings.

Broken white lines in the road mean that you may change lanes if it is safe to do so.

Solid White Line: requires you to stay within the lane and also marks the shoulder of the roadway.

One way to know if you're in your lane is to check your rear view mirror.

If it looks centered then you are in your lane.

You can also check the side view mirrors for how close you are to the line on both sides.

It will not take long to get used to how “being centered in the lane” appears when just looking straight ahead.
