    • Fail MY TP TEST 50 POINTS !!! 

       

      No points on parking and narrow course

      44 point on circuit and 6 point on road

      I have learn most of my mistake but what is fail to use engine brake on straight road does it mean I have to release my accelerator before traffic light or what because I did that already am I expected to do something else like down gear or what I thought we are not suppose to change gear when we are about to stop?

      and i got 4 point on fail to check mirror before turning i remember i check everytime unless they are not talking about the right and left mirror ???

      Means to slow down the vehicle by the means of the engine and gears.

      Assume at 50km/h, usually at 4th gear, you are approaching a junction. Instead of using the footbrake, u slow down the vehicle by downshifting the gears, from 4th, to 3rd, then 2nd, without stepping on the throttle

      Since ur engine will try to idle at approx 1krpm without stepping on the throttle, u will feel the vehicle slow down as ur gear goes lower + engine trying to idle back to 1krpm.

    • Are you learning manual or auto driving? School or private instructor? Usually if you are an driving school's student, they wouldn't allow you to take the traffic police test if you have these problem you mention during their training.

      Anyway, in future maybe we will travel in driverless vehicles if we are lucky. So try to relax and chill!
