Today three New Day Vancouver Driving School students passed their road tests at the Point Grey ICBC location. Not only did they pass, in each instance their ICBC driver examiner was very impressed with their performance.
First up was Natalia from Russia. She had been unsuccessful on her first attempt of the Point Grey Class 5 road test some time ago; this time she contacted me in order to try for a happier result. She purchased a package of seven ninety-minute lessons, even though I felt that three or four lessons should be adequate. She really wanted to pass this time, and went for the seven lessons. On successive weekends she diligently followed my advice and focused on the areas that are critical for safe driving and a successful road test. This morning she was a little nervous, but unless something really unusual happened, this to me (I would never tell my student this before the road test) was a guaranteed pass. It was truly a joyful scene in the Point Grey office when she returned from her road test.
The second client was a high school student from Kitsilano Secondary taking the Point Grey Class 7 road test. She was a parent-trained driver, which is not necessarily a bad thing. This young lady was definitely a competent driver, but she hadn’t been taught the things that are crucial to a successful road test. She had originally planned on taking five one-hour lessons, but three proved to be enough for her. After her final lesson yesterday afternoon, I knew she was ready and things should go great. With her mother waiting in the Point Grey office, it was definitely a treat to enjoy the happiness of success.
My final client was Carlos from Brazil taking the Class 5 road test. He had been referred to my by a former Brazilian student. I don’t know exactly why, but all of my Brazilian students have been very successful on their road tests. Carlos was no exception. This was his first attempt, and all he needed was a one-hour lesson a few weeks ago. He went for an hour-long tune-up before his road test, and pulled off his success with just a couple of miscellaneous marks on his road test paper. I am now looking forward to helping his wife prepare for Point Grey road test.
Of course my students don’t always pass; I cannot control what happens on the road. But if you want your best chance of success on the Point Grey road test, try a session with me, Perry, the Point Grey road test expert.
