Driving Test Tips Continued......

There are a number of simple things that you need to check on your Car before presenting yourself for the .The examiner will do an inspection of the vehicle before getting into the car for the drive and if any of the following are found to be not up to standard, then its bye bye Test and come back next year!

Yes.. the waiting list for the Irish Driving Test is approximately one year and more in some areas.This is due primarily to our unique Demographics here in Ireland and not to most of the Examiners being on Holidays!

(1) Check that your windscreen is free from Cracks.A cracked windscreen will continue to spread and will be in a dangerous condition before long ..Answer= Replace.

(2) Tyres should be well above the legal limit of 1.6mm Tread Depth (across the central 75% of the tyre).No cuts splits or bulges should be visible.As soon as you see any of these the Tyre should be replaced.

(3) The best Tyres should always be on the front Axle.The front tyres do all the work and wear out twice as quickly as the rears.So if you have good tyres on the rear and semi-worn on the front then switch them around.

(4) All loose rubbish and clutter should be completely removed from the car and nothing on the rear parcel shelf.All "Danglies" no matter how attached you are to them, should be removed.That's furry dice, air freshners, nodding dogs, humourous stickers, cushions, and anything else! Why ? because any of these items can be distracting and in a worse case scenario can impede controls.

(5) Brake light and indicator light bulbs must all be functioning perfectly .You should always carry a couple of spare bulbs in the car so that when they do blow you can fix them in a jiffy.Don't know how? Ask your Instructor to show you ..its not Atomic Physics and only takes a minute or two.

(6) Electrics must all be functioning perfectly. Why? Well you will be asked to demonstrate all your secondary controls before the drive and if something isn't working it is quite probable that the Examiner will abort the Test An electric Drivers window must be functioning. It's vital to be able to wind down the window in bad weather conditions to check if the road is clear when turning right.You can't see adequately through a wet window!.Also it's useful to get a better audio impression of approaching traffic at a blind junction.

(7) Know how to open your Bonnet.Remember the weekly checks you should be doing under the hood( that American for Bonnet!).These technical checks are now part of the Irish Driving Test since February 2005.

(8) All of the above and some more are contained in my Articles published on the Web and hidden in the Archives on this Blog.All our writings you can find at Ezine just click on the Boxlink at the end of this post.We also write about other subjects that are not related to Driving or Learning to Drive

That's it for now come back soon.
