Today a New Day Driving School student accomplished a truly amazing feat on her Point Grey Class 7 road test. After the examiner congratulated her and told her that she had passed, he handed her a truly rare thing indeed: a clean sheet, a blank paper – a road test paper without a single mark on it. Any driver examiner will tell you that this is truly a rare accomplishment. Not a single mark, everything was perfect.
When my client came back inside the Point Grey Licensing Office she looked a little glum and crestfallen. However, this was just the usual ruse of passing students trying to pull a fast one on their hopeful driving instructor. I told her before the road test that I would be shocked if she didn’t pass (I almost never tell my students that they will pass, just that I think they should pass), and for a brief second she had me fooled. When the truth of the matter was revealed, I was able enjoy the immense satisfaction of having had one of my students perform in such a spectacular fashion.
Your road test doesn’t have to be perfect; you just have to meet the minimum requirements. In fact, trying to be “perfect”, particularly in parking, has been the downfall of many examinees. I can show you the areas where perfection is not mandatory, and the areas in which it is critical to follow my guidelines and be close to perfection.
To get through the Point Grey road test with its usual array of pedestrians, buses, cyclists, and crappy drivers doing their best to make your road test miserable is not an easy task. Of course you need basic driving skill, but also necessary are discipline, focus, and good judgement in handling the multitude of situations that pop up in the course your time on the road.
