How to Position Your Hands on the Steering Wheel | Passing A Road Test Smart
 
02:02
For the purposes of a road test you must keep both hands on the steering wheel for the duration of the drive. Watch the video! Subscribe Today! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Your hands must be at either the 10 & 2 positions or 9 & 3. Current driver training theory is 8 & 4, as a result of air bags. In the event of a crash, and the air bags deploy, you could sustain injuries to your arms if they are in positions other than 8 & 4. As well, when turning you do not have to manipulate the steering wheel back; simply open your fingers—keep your palms in contact with the steering wheel—and allow the wheel to turn. When it is done turning, close you fingers and resume driving. For most curves during a drive, the steering wheel has to be turned only 1/4 turn, and both hands can remain on the wheel. Use hand-over-hand for turning corners. As well, keep you hands on the outside of the steering wheel.

Coupon "youtube30" CLICK LINK https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-your-driver-s-license-road-test-first-time-guaranteed For every road test, regardless of where you are in the world, there are 4 fundamental components for which examiners looking for competency: 1) speed management 2) space management 3) observation 4) communication Shoulder checking fulfills the observation component o the road test. Owing to the fact that any vehicle has blind spots--areas around the vehicle that cannot be seen with mirrors--you must shoulder check to see if there are other road users within proximity of your vehicle - especially other vehicles, cyclists, scooters or pedestrians. To shoulder check, you simply move your head 90° degrees in the direction you are going to turn or move the vehicle. You must shoulder (head) check every time you move the vehicle laterally. And before executing a manoeuvre, you must both communicate your intentions. Communicating your intentions to other road users is done via signals, lights, appropriate hand gestures, eye contact and the position of your vehicle. When turning or merging, you must shoulder check twice: once before the turn, and again immediately before merging or turning. And when merging or changing lanes, you must also shoulder check two times before moving the vehicle. Good luck on your road test! **************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

How to Pass a CDL Pre Trip Inspection Test | CDL Road Test Smart
 
07:32
Learn how to pass your CDL pre trip test, and complete a pre-trip inspection as part of your licence test. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest INTRODUCTION The pre-trip inspection for the purposes of a road test. The first thing I want to say about a pre trip for the purposes of a road test: you are not determining if the vehicle is safe! Let me repeat that: you are not determining if the vehicle is safe. What you are doing is demonstrating a competency, and what I am going to explain to you is the fundamentals of the pre trip for the purposes of a road test. MEMORIZE BY ROTE This is a class one vehicle and the first thing that we tell students is the sequence because you cannot have any paperwork with you for the pre trip inspection for the purposes of a road test. Most provinces on a class 1 allow 45 minutes for a pre trip, for class 2 and class 3 it's a half an hour, and for class 4— class E in Ontario and other places— small buses and ambulances they allow twenty minutes for a pre-trip inspection. So you need to have it down. an instructor teaching a student the pre trip inspectionSequence The first thing we tell students is sequence: so underneath the hood here, for example, what you do is you start at the top, at the back and it's a zigzag pattern - go across, drop down six to eight inches, come back across the motor, 6 to eight inches, all the way down the wheel, the inside of the tire, over the top of the tire, and down and out to be outside of the tire. So that is the way that you remember: top to bottom, side to side, is your sequence for the purposes of a road test. For example this section of the truck at the passenger's door: you start at the top, there's no damage to the top of the cab, the mirror is not cracked or broken, it's secure on the truck, not cracked or broken, glass is not chipped cracked or broken. The MVI decal is valid until September 2016 - the end of the month. The door opens and closes, the light is working, hood is latched, step is secure - give it a kick with your foot. And we checked the fuel cap on the last section down there. Nothing hanging down on the fairing - it's not broken. So when you do a section of the truck break it down in the section start the top, work to the bottom. That way you're not going to forget anything. When you get finished the section take a breath—pause—just have a quick look make sure you didn't forget anything and then move on to the next section right here. DEMONSTRATE A COMPETENCY Now the other thing that we tell students to do for the components of the vehicle because the purpose of the pre trip is to demonstrate a competency, to demonstrate to the examiner that you know the names of the major components of the vehicle - you know whether they're potentially damaged and what could be wrong with them. For example, glass could be chipped, cracked, or broken and you know that. What potentially could be wrong with it and you know that the component is working. So you have lights - the lights are working. Now it's a visual inspection or you're grabbing something giving it a shake to make sure it's secure. Now what we tell students is to say: "secure, not damaged, not leaking." "SECURE, NOT DAMAGED, NOT LEAKING" If you have a brain cramp during your examination and you forget what something is, just lightly touch, point to the component: "secure, not damage, not leaking." They're not going to ding you or give you demerit points because you don't remember the name of something, but you did check it. Now the reason we say "not damaged... secure, not damaged," secure on the vehicle. It's not damaged - a rock didn't fly up and put a big ding in the side or something smacked into it and hit it. Not leaking - 75% percent - approximately 75% of the components on the vehicle are either have fluid or air in them. That's why we say "secure, not damaged, not leaking." Now the purposes of the pre-trip inspection - most of it is a visual inspection. The pre-trip inspection is detailed and must be completed without aids. Learn the fundamentals of doing your pre-trip inspection here. ****************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Stop at the Correct Position at a STOP Signed Intersection
 
02:38
Drivers must come to a complete stop at a STOP signed intersection at the correct position. Watch the video! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest To see how to come to a complete stop, see: How to Stop Completely at STOP Signs | Pass a ROAD TEST Smart - https://youtu.be/NuxBYfI2rhs For an image of the stopping positions at a STOP signed intersection see: http://www.smartdrivetest.com/road-signs/stopping-position-at-stop-sign A driving instructor explains you the 3 stopping positions at controlled intersections: 1) Before the STOP line; 2) Before the crosswalk line or sidewalk (foot path); 3) Before where the two roads meet. When coming to a stop before the stop line, slow and allow the STOP line to just roll under the front of the vehicle. When the STOP line disappears, bring the vehicle to a stop. If there isn't a STOP line, but there is a crosswalk line, stop before the crosswalk line and scan for pedestrians and other road users before proceeding. If there isn't a crosswalk line, but there is a sidewalk or foot path, stop before the side walk or foot path. Give the right-of-way to other road users and pedestrians before proceeding. If you are turning, ensure you shoulder (head) check immediately before executing the turn. If there isn't a STOP line, no crosswalk lines, or sidewalk, then stop before where the two road meet. See image: http://www.smartdrivetest.com/road-test/pass-a-driving-test-stop-sign-stopping-positions On most intersections, you will not be able to see he cross-traffic when you are stopped at the correct stopping position; therefore, you will have to move forward to see the cross-traffic. you cannot see the cross traffic at the intersection after coming to a complete stop at the correct stopping position, treat the intersection as a yield. In other words, creep forward until you can see. Give the right-of-way to all other vehicles and road users, and when the way is clear proceed. Good luck on your road test! ********************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

How to Turn Right At An Intersection | Pass A Road Test Smart
 
05:50
Turning right is a fundamental skill to pass a road test! Learn how - watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest The steps for turning right are below. • Locate the turn – is it legal? • Move the vehicle to the right and slow in preparation for turning. • Check the mirrors, signal to the right and shoulder check. • Determine if you can slow without other vehicle’s potentially rear ending you. • Determine what controls (stop, yield sign or traffic lights) are at the intersection, if any. • Scan the intersection for other vehicles, pedestrians or fixed objects. • Shoulder check immediately before turning. Turn to the right when the post on the passenger side of the vehicle is in line with the cross-street. • Turn the vehicle. • Recover the steering wheel. Look up into the intended path of travel and accelerate with your right foot. ********************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.facebook.com/twitter

The first person to arrive, or give the right-of-way to the person on the right. 4-Way STOPs, however are more complicated - watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest All drivers must give the right-of-way to pedestrians and scooters. Cyclists and riders must obey the same rules as drivers. And remember: the right-of-way is never taken, it is always given. When 4-Way STOPs are busy, the lanes of traffic take turns proceeding through the intersection. If two left-turning vehicles arrive at the intersection at the same time from opposite sides, the two vehicles can turn left simultaneously. Turning vehicles must give the right-of-way to straight through traffic. ************************ www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

How to Stop Completely at STOP Signs | Pass a ROAD TEST Smart
 
03:14
You must come to a complete stop at STOP signed intersections. Watch the video to learn how! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest When a learner driver comes to a complete stop at a STOP signed intersection, the wheels must stop turning for a brief moment. For new drivers, this action of stopping the vehicle completely can be difficult to determine. The body and the chassis are the 2 main components of a vehicle. As the brakes are applied, the body actually moves forward of the chassis. To prevent whiplash and bring the vehicle to a complete stop, the driver releases the brakes in the instant before coming to a stop, and then reapplies the brakes. This technique allows the body to settle over the chassis in its natural resting position and brings the vehicle--any vehicle--to a gentle stop. Before proceeding, the driver scans the intersection. If she/he can't see, creep forward until you can see the intersection and the cross traffic, Give the right-of-way to other road users and when the way is clear proceed through the intersection. As you can see in the video, few--if any--drivers actually stop at a STOP signed intersection. For new drivers, this action of other drivers creates social pressure, which can be difficult for new drivers to overcome. Yet for the purposes of a road test, drivers must come to a COMPLETE stop at a STOP signed intersection. After coming to a complete stop at most STOP signed intersections, it is unlikely that the driver will be able to see the cross-traffic. Therefore, s/he has to move forward to get a clear view. And be sure to treat the intersection as a YIELD after coming to a complete stop and give the right-of-way to all other road users.

How to Do a 3 Point Turn :: K Turn :: Y Turn
 
08:20
A 3 point turn is a required slow speed manoeuvre for a road test. Watch the video to learn how. PASS YOUR ROAD TEST FIRST TIME CHECKLIST: https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-road-test-checklist SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Most of a passenger vehicle road test is in a forward motion – approximately 7/8th of the test is in a forward motion, however, the 1/8 that is slow-speed manoeuvres gives new drivers the most challenge. For the purpose of a road test, drivers are required to know how to do a 3 point turn. The step-by-step directions for a 3 point turn can be found here: https://goo.gl/vpx4EC Most of the time, a driving examiner will take you a dead end street, or a thoroughfare with minimal traffic to complete this manoeuvre. As well, the street will be narrow and will preclude you from doing a ‘U’ turn. It is important to go slow for this manoeuvre – no or little throttle is required. Often a driver will be required to apply the brake to control the speed of the vehicle. Other key components of the 3 point turn are observation and communication. In other words, you must not move the vehicle until the way is clear in both directions, and you communicate to other traffic what you are doing on the roadway. STEP-BY-STEP Instructions for 3 Point Turn You are stopped at the right side of the road • Select Drive • Check the left mirror, signal to the left and check over the left shoulder • Release the brake, don't give the vehicle any gas and steer all the way rapidly to the left • As you go over the centre line begin to straighten out the wheels • Stop near the curb • Select reverse and activate your right signal • Do a safety scan, check for traffic and look over your right shoulder - release the brake when the way is clear and steer rapidly to the right • When your reach the centre of the road, look over your left shoulder, straighten out the wheel and stop the vehicle near the curb (you are looking over your left shoulder because the rear left tire is the first to the curb - the rear tires are just behind the back seat) • Select drive, signal left, do a safety scan (left, centre, right) to ensure it is clear to pull out and drive away - Look into your intended path - Accelerate - Steer the vehicle *************************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Coupon "youtube30" CLICK LINK https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-your-driver-s-license-road-test-first-time-guaranteed For the purposes of a road test you must have 1 roadway lane between your vehicle and the pedestrian(s) before turning. When turning right on a 2-lane road with opposing lanes of traffic, the pedestrian(s) must reach the curb. The same when turning left onto a 2-land road, and the pedestrian(s) are travelling either toward or away from your vehicle. The reason that you must have this distance is in the event that the pedestrian forgets something and turns back. Or if there are children, who have not yet developed a "traffic sense", and may run out into traffic. On a multi-lane roadway, when the pedestrians are crossing away from you, the pedestrian(s) must reach the centre of the road. When turning left on a multi-lane roadway, the pedestrian must reach the curb if crossing away from you. If the pedestrian is crossing toward you and you are turning left, the pedestrian(s) must be beyond the physical median or at the centre of the two lanes travelling in the opposite direction.

How to Grease 5th Wheel | Trucking Smart
 
04:31
Learn how to grease a 5th Wheel - watch the video!! Subscribe Today! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Greasing 5th wheel must be done periodically to ensure safety & proper maintenance. It is important to maintain proper lubrication of the 5th to prevent the trailer from binding and potentially causing the unit to go out of control. Rather than applying grease to the entire surface of the plate, a moderate amount only needs to be applied on both sides, at the rear of the 5th wheel. Greasing a 5th Wheel 5th wheelThis fifth wheel is dry and what happens when the fifth wheel gets dry up underneath the trailer it binds on the bottom the trailer apron that is also steel and also has as you can see here on this bare spots of steel that this fifth wheel actually has been unhooked from the trailer for a few days and has been sitting out on the weather and has begun to rust. You need to lubricate the fifth wheel so that there is smooth movement between the trailer apron of the semi-trailer and the fifth wheel. Especially in the winter time when it gets cold and it freezes up, it will begin to bind on the fifth wheel and when you turn if you're going at any speed in those two things begin to lock up if you let it get dry enough the fifth, the trailer rather will actually push you through a turn it is imperative that you keep the fifth wheel on the tractor properly lubricated to ensure your safety and the safety of the road users on the roads which are traveling because if the trailer binds up it could potentially cause a crash. How to Apply Grease I'm gonna show you how to do that. One of the things that you can use is just go to the truck stop if you're out and you realize that the fifth wheel has gotten dry is just buy a tub of grease. What happens is a lot of people who lubricate fifth wheels lubricate the entire surface. You don't have to lubricate the entire surface. Put the grease right here at the bottom on both sides. When you go underneath the trailer and pick up the the trailer and then push into the kingpin, it will push the grease forward on the fifth wheel, and when you turn it will move in across the top up the plate. So it's... You don't have to spend all your time and energy greasing the entire fifth wheel you just have to put the grease down here. OK, so I got my bucket of grease here. I'm just gonna put some grease on the back of the fifth wheel on both sides at the bottom. And then I'll hook up the semi-trailer and I'll show you how this works. So what I'll do is I'll move the camera and I'll get a better shot of this but you can see I haven't put very much on both sides. You don't need a lot of grease. It just needs to be lubricated with a nice thin film of of grease over the entire fifth wheel. And as I said when you hook the truck up to the trailer the trailer apron plate will push the grease forward on the fifth wheel and as it turns it was smooth it over the whole thing. So, you don't have to spend your time greasing the whole fifth wheel, okay. I'll take a better shot & show you how much grease I've put on there and than I'll hook it up to the semitrailer. I'll drive the semi-trailer, and I'll unhook it & I'll show you how it's moved around. Lubrication So as you can see here, the tractors been driven around. It's been underneath the semi-trailer. I've pulled it back out from under the semi-trailer and you can see there's a nice even spread of the grease over the entire surface of the fifth wheel. and there's a nice shiny sheen. You can see the whole surface of the fifth wheel has been lubricated So again, the method to put the grease on the fifth wheel is not too cover the entire thing, but rather put it in the back on both sides when you push underneath the trailer it'll push it forward and when you turn with the semi-trailer, it'll spread it out and you get this nice even lubrication of the entire fifth wheel surface, which will keep you safe on the roads. ******************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

How to Merge onto a Freeway, Motorway, or Interstate
 
09:07
Learn how to correctly merge onto a freeway. Watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest An on-ramp consists of two parts: the on-ramp and the acceleration ramp. The on-ramp is the section of road that connects the road from which you're coming onto the highway or freeway. The on-ramp can be short or long and no two are the same length. After the on-ramp is the acceleration lane. The acceleration lane provides a stretch of road for you to acquire speed so that you can get your vehicle up to highway speed or the speed of traffic flow - whichever is less. You will know that you are on the acceleration lane because you will pass the solid lane marking on your left . The lane marking on your left will become dotted and the dashes are twice as wide and ½ as long as road markings that separate lanes of traffic travelling in the same direction. These lane markings are called continuity lines. Continuity lines are twice as wide and ½ as long; therefore are distinguished. If you are in a lane that has continuity lines on your left, the lane you are in is either going to exit or end. In the case of an acceleration lane, it is going to end – therefore, hammer down!!

The Differential Lock Explained :: Diff Lock | Truck Driving School
 
02:02
Stopped on gravel, in gear and not going anywhere?! Learn what's happening and how to get traction. Watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest All big trucks are equipped with differential locks. Most vehicles only have a differential lock for the front rear axle. A differential is designed for the two wheels to spin at different speeds; thus, differential speeds. And often, the power is supply to the wheel with the least resistance. If one wheel become elevated that wheel will spin--and as in the case presented in the video--not have traction, and thus the vehicle doesn't move. Simply engage the differential lock to regain traction and the vehicle will move. DO NOT ENGAGE THE DIFF LOCK WHILE THE WHEELS ARE SPINNING!! If there are two differential locks and an inter-axle lock--as on Western Star truck--this will cause all 4 sets of duals on the rear of the truck to lock and spin at the same rate. When engaged, drive at low speeds - see owner's manual for best information. In the video game Euro Truck Simulator 2, they've added a differential lock - if you're unsure what a differential lock is, this video will explain how that works. The differential lock is often shortened to "diff lock". ************************* www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

And for the purposes of a road test, you often have to move out of your lane to drive around parked vehicles, fixed objects, or other road users. This manoeuvre is required in many residential and suburban areas. You must mirror, signal, shoulder check out of your lane and again when you move the vehicle back into your lane. If at any time during your road test, you are unsure of what action to do - STOP...simply STOP. If you "plow" forward and compromise the safety of other road users or yourself and the examiner, unfortunately, you will not be successful on your road test.

How to Turn Right At An Intersection On A Red Light | Pass A Road Test Smart
 
08:25
Learn how to turn right on a red light to pass your road test - watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest You can turn right at a red light so long as there aren't signs prohibiting such action. Do NOT turn contrary to a sign that prohibits right hand turns on a red light. When turning right at a red light, you must stop at the correct stopping position. For most intersections that are equipped with traffic lights, there will be both a STOP line and a crosswalk. Stop your vehicle just before the STOP line. When you approach the intersection, allow the STOP line to just roll under the front of the vehicle. At that point come to a complete stop. You know the vehicle is completely stopped because the body will settle back and come to a rest over the frame of the vehicle - see this video for compete stops: https://youtu.be/NuxBYfI2rhs If you just arrived at the red light, and the traffic on the other side of the intersection is turning left, that usually means that that traffic has an advanced green turning arrow. If so, the left turning traffic has the right-of-way, and you must wait for the left-turning traffic before you can proceed and turn right on the red light. Before turn right on a red light, give the right-of-way to all other road users - pedestrians, cyclists, scooters and whatnot. After coming to a complete stop, you will most likely have to creep forward to be able to see the cross traffic. Continue to scan, and immediately before turning, do a shoulder (head) check to ensure that there aren't any pedestrians or cyclists in your blind spot on the right side of the vehicle. Also be sure to scan thoroughly for cyclist and riders on motorcycles. When the way is clear and you have given the right-of-way to all other road users, you can proceed. Turn the corner and look into your intended path of travel. And accelerate the vehicle to the posted speed limit or the flow of traffic; whichever is less as quickly as possible. If there is a bicycle lane on the right that has a solid white line--and there isn't a right-hand turning lane, do not squeeze over there to turn right. On a road test, that will incur major demerits and could potentially cause you to fail. Good luck on your road test! ****************************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

How to Turn Right at Complex Intersections | Pass A Road Test Smart
 
05:27
On a road test, you will be required to turn right at complex intersections. Watch the video! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest For the purposes of any road test there are 4 fundamental components: 1) Speed management 2) Space management 3) Observation 4) Communication All of these skills are put into play when turning right at complex intersections. At many of these intersections, drivers are multi-tasking at a high level. It is not that the manoeuvre is complicated, but rather that there are numerous actions, skills and hazards that can present themselves when turning right at a complex intersection. And often this manoeuvre is further complicated the by the "WRONG" actions of other drivers. When turning right it is important that you mirror, signal, shoulder check approximately 1/2 block before the turn. If there is a cyclist lane, you must shoulder check before crossing the bicycle lane. And you must scan the intersection well ahead to ensure you see pedestrians and other vulnerable road users. If there are pedestrians you must stop before the pedestrians crosswalk and give the right-of-way to pedestrians and other road users. Often complex intersections will have slip lanes. And these slip lanes are equipped with YIELD signs. If the way is clear and there isn't any cross-traffic you don't have to stop, but ensure that you scan thoroughly before proceeding. When turning right and there are multiple lanes, be sure that you stay in the right hand lane. Do not turn right and then deviate over into the left hand turn. This action could potential cause you to fail a road test. And when turning right, if you drift or move over to the left lane - it is dangerous and may eventually lead to a crash. If you're turning right and vehicles are turning left from the opposite side of the intersection, do not turn in beside these vehicles. Again this is dangerous because many drivers making a left turn often deviate immediately over to the right-hand lane. Therefore, when making a right hand turn at a complex intersection always turn in behind the other vehicles as defensive posturing. In other words, it is a defensive technique that will lower the risk of being involved in a crash. Turning forms the basis for speed & space management. These are the fundamental components on which you will be tested. On multi-lane urban roads, there is a correct procedure for turning right. On turning lanes, there are several steps and procedures that must be followed correctly to be successful on your road test. Both the incorrect and correct procedures for turning right at slip lanes are outlined in this video. ************************* www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Covering the brake is an essential skill to pass your road test - watch the video! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest On a road test, you must identify potential hazards as these materialize on the roadway. “Covering the brake” pedal cuts down your reaction time in applying the brakes. On a road test, covering the brake is an essential skill, and its use demonstrates to examiners that you are competent. Because you are scanning well ahead in front, and are prepared in the event that a action on the roadway could potentially result in conflict. By covering the brake, you are being proactive.

PASS YOUR ROAD TEST FIRST TIME CHECKLIST: https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-road-test-checklist SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest SEE DETAILS BELOW • Locate the parking space – is the space legal and is it approximately 1 ½ times the size of your car • Mirror, signal, shoulder check and ensure that it is safe to stop and that there aren't any vehicles tailgating you • Pull up beside the car (3 feet from the car—in front of the parking space you wish to back into--and stop • Line up the rear bumpers—you will be able to see the rear corner of the vehicle through your rear right window • Put the car into reverse so the reverse lights activate telling traffic that you are going to park • Put on your right signal to communicate to other traffic that you are going to park • Locate your 45° degree reference point, which should be straight out form the door post—the reference marker can be any fixed object • Release the brake pedal and back slowly, steering rapidly all the way to the right without any throttle and backing until your are facing your reference point • At this point the rear bumper of the stationary car should be in line with your steering wheel • Straighten the wheels and back until the bumper of the parked car is ½ to 1/3 the way down your hood or the front of your car clears the parked car • Steer rapidly all the way to the left and back until the car is straight in the space • Stop Put the transmission in “Drive” or a forward gear and pull forward • You should be able to see the top of the rear bumper of the car in front of you • When park your vehicle should be 6-9” inches from the curb • Secure your vehicle by applying the parking brake and putting the transmission into park (or a forward gear if you’re driving a manual transmission) When pulling up to parallel park off the other vehicle, take note of how far the other vehicle is from the curb. If the vehicle is far from the curb, you will have to drive farther into the space. If the vehicle is close to the space, you will have to drive less deep into the space. If it is a wide vehicle, that too will dictate that you drive farther into the space.

Turning Left at Complex Intersections | Road Test Smart
 
15:01
Turning left at complex intersection takes driving to its highest level of multi-tasking. Watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Complex intersections where left turns are permitted are equipped with turning lanes, stop lines, crosswalk lines, advanced green traffic lights, and often right-hand turning lane. These traffic management road components work to move vehicles & road users smoothly through the intersection and reduce conflict points. As a new driver, you must know the function of these components and how to navigate these intersections. First, get into the turning lane as soon as it begins- that part cannot be stressed enough. Check your mirrors, signal, and shoulder check approximately 1/2 block before the turn. Move into the turning lane immediately. And if there is a red light, stop before the stop line. As you're waiting, watch both the pedestrian crosswalk on your left, and the cross-road traffic light. You have 2 seconds from the time the cross-road traffic light goes red to the time your traffic light goes green. If you have the advanced green turning light, you can proceed when the light turns green. If you have to wait at the intersection for traffic to clear and you are the first person in line, wait with the front tires of your vehicle on the front crosswalk line - that way you are committed to the intersection, but not in the intersection. This strategy will protect you in the event that something goes array. If a gap in the traffic does not present itself, you will have to proceed on the amber light. Watch carefully for your light to go to yellow as 2 things must to happen: 1) you must check to ensure that the oncoming traffic has, in fact, stopped – in other words, a vehicle isn’t “ripping” through the intersection; 2) you must look in the path of travel and deftly clear the intersection. ************************* www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Do you want to pass a driver's license road test first time? Watch the video to learn how. PASS YOUR ROAD TEST FIRST TIME CHECKLIST: https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-road-test-checklist SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest On road test day, your job is to take away the driving examiner's right to fail you - nothing more, nothing less. If you've practiced, that job is a simple task. Driving is NOT a spectator sport, and you must practice to be prepared for road test day. Remember, we do what we practice, so the more you drive in preparation for your road test, the higher probability of success you are going to have on your driver's license road test day. If you haven’t taken driver training with a driving school, be sure to hire a driving school to take you out on a mock road test. A driving instructor will identify the gaps in your driving abilities, skills, and knowledge so you will be better prepared. Keep in mind, driving schools teach drivers how to pass a road test every day! Importantly, if you make a mistake on the road test, move on quickly - do not dwell on the mistake. If you dwell on the mistake, your distraction will cause you to make more mistakes. And some times the driving examiner may not have even seen the mistake. Speed and space management are the 2 biggest components of a driver's license road test. Be sure to drive the posted speed limit for the speed of the traffic flow - whichever is less. As well, stay away from other traffic, vehicles, road users, pedestrians and fixed objects. In addition to speed and space management, observation and communication are the other two fundamental components that make up a road test. You must demonstrate to the examiner that you have a scanning pattern that allows you to interpret and predict traffic patterns. As well, the scanning pattern is looking in the mirrors and monitoring the gauges on the dash of your vehicle. And for the purposes of observing, you must shoulder check at least twice for every turn and lateral movement. You must shoulder check two times when making lane changes. When communicating with other traffic, you must activate your turn signal approximately 1/2 block before making a turn. And it is suggested that you have three flashes on the turn signal before making any lateral movement or lane changes. To review...the 4 fundamental components of any road test are: 1) speed management 2) space management 3) observation 4) communication Demonstrate competency in these 4 basic components of the road test, and you will have taken away the examiner's right to fail you. Good luck on your road test. *********************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Therefore, it is important--and as soon as possible--that you locate the vehicle and take action to move out of the path of the emergency vehicle. Emergency vehicles are the proverbial "fly in the ointment" of driver's road tests. Driving is a dynamic task, and emergency vehicles can appear at any time. During a road test and all other times, drivers must pull over to the nearest edge of the road and stop. If you are waiting at an intersection and blocked in by other traffic, simply stay where you are. Often times the emergency vehicle will deviate into the other lanes of traffic to move through the intersection. If a driver does not pull over for emergency vehicles during a road test, it is unlikely that she/he will be successful. In other words, move to the closest shoulder: if you're driving in the right lane, move to the right; if you're driving in the left lane, move to the left side of the road. If you’re at an intersection or roundabout, you may have to turn the corner of proceed through to make way for the emergency vehicle. And keep in mind that emergency vehicles often travel in groups – so if there is one, there is often going to be another. The only time that you don't have to pull over for emergency vehicle is on multi-lane highways where the lanes of traffic are divided by a concrete barrier or median that would make it impossible for the emergency vehicle to traverse onto the other side of the road.

Watch the video to learn your hand signals! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest For the purposes of a road test in a car, light truck, or motorcycle you may be quizzed on your knowledge of hand signals. You must know the hand signal for right and left turns, and for slowing down or stopping. In this video, we demonstrate the 3 hand signals that you need to know for the purposes of a road test. • Left arm extended straight out indicates that you are turning left • Left arm out and bent upward at the elbow indicates that you are turning right • Left arm out and bent downward at the elbow indicated that you are slowing or stopping These hand signals will be used for drivers operating motorcycles, cars and trucks if the lights have stopped working, or even a horse and carriage. Also, hand signals can be used on slow-moving vehicles--farm equipment, industrial vehicles, construction equipment--to indicated to other traffic that they are turning or slowing. Drivers must know their hand signals and watch for these when around other vehicles. ********************* www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

How to Test Tractor Protection System  for CDL Air Brake Inspection

As part of your CDL air brake inspection, you must test the tractor protection system. Watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Get 30% OFF Air Brake Course. Coupon "youtube30" CLICK THE LINK https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-cdl-air-brakes-course Any truck or tractor designed to pull a trailer fitted with air brakes will be equipped with a tractor protection system. The tractor protection system consists of two valves: 1) the tractor protection valve 2) the trailer air supply valve The tractor protection valve is comparable to a sentry. It monitors air pressure in the trailer. If the tractor protection valve detects catastrophic air loss in the trailer, it tells the trailer air supply valve to shut off air to the trailer. The trailer air supply valve turns air on and off to the trailer. The misconception is that the trailer air supply valve turns the spring brakes on and off on the trailer - that, however, is a subsequent action. Think of the trailer air supply valve like a light switch. The light switch controls the flow of electricity and subsequently the light goes of and on. Like the light switch, the trailer air supply controls airflow to the trailer. The subsequent action is that it also turns the spring brakes off and on on the trailer. There are 3 tests to test the tractor protection system: 1) Chock the wheels, release the parking brakes and pump system pressure between 20 and 45psi - the trailer air supply and parking brake control valves on the dash will pop out 2) Go to the back of the trailer and ensure that the brakes are applied. If the brakes are applied the push rod and slack adjuster will form an approximate 90° angle. 3) Remove the gladhands and make service brake application. If the tractor protection valve is working there won't be any air loss for either the glandhands on the truck or the trailer. All the 3 tests indicate that the tractor protection system is working normally.

Rick with Smart Drive Test talking to you today about parallel parking between cones. I had a comment from nikelnichol. I also had a comment from Nicolas Mazer and both of those smart drivers wanted me to do a video on how to park between cones for the purposes of passing a road test. About a year ago, I also had requests from WorstNightmare666 who also wanted me to do this. And I should have done this a lot earlier. So I do apologize for the delay in getting this video up for you. So that's what we're gonna work on today. Now the first thing you're gonna need is you're going to need those 36 inch tall, 1 meter tall pylons. Sometimes called delineators. And you could pick those up at a rental shop for about $10 for four of them for the day So they're inexpensive. Now parallel parking between cones for the purposes of passing a road test. If you haven't seen the parallel park video already about parking behind a single vehicle or between two vehicles, definitely have a look at that. I'll put the card up in the corner for you and have a look at that video. Now parallel parking between cones tends to be a little bit easier because you got better reference points. And we're gonna go over that now. The first thing you need to do, is you need to set up the cones. You want to set up the cones, as you can see here in the video, approximately a foot wider than the width of your vehicle. You want to put the cone 12 inches or 20 centimeters on either side of the car; on the passenger side and the driver's side. And for the length of the vehicle you want to put the cones one and a half vehicle lengths. So simply park your vehicle where you want it to end up when you finish your parallel park and place the cones at the front and then approximately another half a length behind the vehicle. Put the cones behind the vehicle at approximately the same distance on the driver side and the passenger side. As you get better and better and more comfortable with parallel parking, you can move the cones in and narrow the space that you're going to park into. But for most of these driving centers, the cones are going to be one and a half vehicle length distance between the front and the back. And the reason for that is because any tighter than that and it's just too difficult for new drivers to be able to do that. So that's how you set up the cones. It's not a specific feet and inches or a specific measurement for setting the cones up. Just put them around your vehicle and make them relative. And as I said, as you get better and better and you're working on this aspect of preparation for your road test, just move the cones in a closer and essentially that's all it is. So what we're gonna do here is we're gonna hook up the cameras--the other camera--so you can see everything going on here, and we're gonna do a couple of parallel parks. And I'll go through it step-by-step and give you instructions on how to do this. Good luck on your road test. *************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/ Music: BoxCat Games Nameless: The Hackers RPG Soundtrack - Epic Song

Air Brakes Explained Simply :: Service, Parking and Emergency Brakes One & the Same
 
10:20
The brakes on your car are the same as air brakes, only the power source is different - watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Get 30% OFF Air Brake Course. Coupon "youtube30" CLICK THE LINK https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-cdl-air-brakes-course On a hydraulic braking system that is fitted to most passenger vehicle, there are three brake types: 1) service brakes (brake pedal) 2) parking brakes 3) emergency brakes. All braking systems are divided into two independent sub-systems, therefore it is rare that service brakes fail. When you're going up and down the road, you apply the foot pedal and the vehicle comes to a nice gentle stop. Or if you find yourself in an emergency situation, you have the brake pedal and the vehicle comes to a screeching halt. Although 85% of vehicles in North America are fitted with automatic transmissions and 90% of those drivers don't use the parking brake, all vehicles have parking brakes. And drivers should use the parking brake to prevent undue wear on their transmission when the vehicle is left parked. And in the event that the brakes fail going up and down the road and the brake pedal doesn't work, the driver can apply the parking brake. When the brakes fail and the driver uses the parking brake to bring the vehicle to a stop, the parking brake is now an emergency brake, because--oddly enough--it is now an emergency situation. Ai brakes have the same three types of brakes: 1) service brakes (brake pedal) 2) parking brakes 3) emergency brakes. What has confused students since air brake courses were implement in the 1970s is that instructors refer to service brakes as air brakes and spring brakes as parking and emergency brakes. There has not been a clear terminology, and this lack of clarity has served to confuse air brake students. So, the three brake types are the same. What is different is that power source that applies the brakes. On a hydraulic system, hydraulic pressure applies the service brakes. The parking/emergency brakes are applied with a cable and lever. The energy to move the lever comes from the driver. The only difference between the brakes on a hydraulic system and those on an air brake system is the power source and that the emergency brakes on your car are applied manually - on an air brake system, the emergency brakes apply automatically. On an air brake system, the driver pushes the brake pedal and applies the service brakes going up and down the road. When the driver parks the vehicle, she/he pulls the parking control valve on the dash and exhausts the air from the spring brake chamber. Exhausting the air pressure allows the large, powerful springs to expand which applies the parking brakes. While the vehicle is going up and down the road, the large powerful springs are held in the released position by air pressure. If the air pressure is lost, the large powerful spring will expand and begin to automatically apply the emergency brakes. Both hydraulic and air brake systems are the same. Both have parking brakes where the parking/emergency brakes are one and the same. The only difference is that the emergency brakes on your car are applied manually and on an air brake system these apply automatically. What has confused students is referring to parking/emergency brakes as spring brakes. Good luck on your road test! ********************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Basic CDL Air Brake Components | Air Brake Smart

Learn about air brake basics - watch the video!! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Get 30% OFF Air Brake Course. Coupon "youtube30" CLICK THE LINK https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-cdl-air-brakes-course There are 6 basic components on an air brake equipped vehicle: 1) compressor; 2) governor; 3) air tanks; 4) air lines; 5) brake pedal; 6) foundation brakes. The air compressor on an air brake equipped vehicle is exactly the same as an air compressor you would find in a garage. The only difference is that an air compressor on an air brake equipped vehicle runs the entire time the motor is running; therefore, it is controlled by the governor. The governor controls the maximum and minimum setting of the air compressor because the air compressor is capable of pumping up to 500psi (pounds per square inch). The governor must return the air compressor to the load or cut-in phase by a minimum of 80psi. And it must return the air compressor to the cut-out or unload phase by a maximum pressure of 135psi. All air brake systems are equipped with a safety valve, which blows off excess pressure at 150psi. You will know it is the safety valve because it makes a sound like a machine gun. The air tanks or reservoirs store compressed air. As well, the air tanks are the first fail-safe of the air brake system because these store enough compressed air for 10-12 full service brake applications. The air lines direct compressed air through the air brake system. The air lines are not coloured coded except the service and supply lines that connect the semi-trailer to the tractor or truck. The brake pedal applies the service brakes, which are the brakes that bring the vehicle to a stop while it's going up and down the road. And the foundation brakes are the components of the air brake system that are actually responsible for bringing the vehicle to a stop: • brake chambers • push rod • slack adjuster • 'S' cam • brake shoes (pads) • brake drum • rotor • callipers And the foundation brakes can be any of the following; however, drum and disc brakes are most common on today's vehicles: • drum ('S' cam) brakes • disc brakes • wedge brakes • CamLaster brakes • air-over-hydraulic brakes The foundation brakes—in this day & age—will be 2 basic types: drum or disc brakes. Foundation brakes also consist of air-over-hydraulic and wedge brakes - you will need to know the latter for the purposes of the air brake knowledge test.

These 10 tips will give you that abilities, skills and knowledge that you need to know to be successful! The 4 basic components of any road test are: 1) speed management 2) space management 3) observations 4) communication To be successful on a road test you must manage both speed of the vehicle, and space around the vehicle. On a road test, you must drive: 1) the posted speed limit 2) the speed of the traffic flow 3) the capability of the vehicle WHICH EVER IS LESS! And you must drive to the conditions of the road. If there is high pedestrian traffic, or it is snowing or raining you will reduce speed. For space management, you must maintain a good distance from other road users and fixed objects. Observation is a key component of a road test. You must shoulder check two times for every turn and every time you move the vehicle laterally. See the videos: https://youtu.be/uJ4w63wZyFQ and https://youtu.be/MzQAmiEtXzk and https://youtu.be/OpiZNRU8gKE Driving is not a spectator sport, and you must practice, practice, practice. And do not overlook or speed past doing slow-speed manoeuvres - these will improve your overall driving. Although, 7/8 of the road test is in a forward motion, it is the 1/8th of the road test that is slow-speed manoeuvres that gives new drivers the biggest challenge. Parallel parking is probably the most difficult slow-speed manoeuvre that requires practice. See video: https://youtu.be/U0uAFVeDUjs and https://youtu.be/LhB0yfD1ePI and https://youtu.be/O0J8AFn3akQ Practice backing. Being able to back well will improve your overall driving. And the steering, throttle and brake all respond differently when the vehicle is in reverse. See videos: https://youtu.be/9NRbMTST6-8 and https://youtu.be/9NRbMTST6-8 Parking is an is a fundamental of any road test. You will be required to park at the licensing center where you will take your test: https://youtu.be/qn1oIDW4rH0 If you are not taking driving lessons, you should do a mock road test with a driving instructor. A driving instructor will give you precise feedback about your preparedness for a road test: https://youtu.be/wPUPciPP46c and in the winter: https://youtu.be/BPpRKeheX00 On the day of your road test, do a pre-trip inspection on the vehicle you are using. Ensure all the lights work, that the seat belts are operational, that the horn, windshield wipers and brake lights all work. And ensure that the registration and insurance papers are in the vehicle and there isn't any damage. Be sure that both license plates are attached. If your vehicle doesn't pass a pre-trip inspection you may not be allowed to take your license. Paperwork: ensure that you have your license and 2 pieces of identification. And bring money - there is a cost for the road test. Finally, go to the toilet before the road test. And breath...if you focus on your breathing, it allows you to relax. And visualize yourself passing your test and earning your license. Good luck on your road test and remember, pick the best answer not necessarily the right answer. Practice these top 10 tips to pass your road test. Practice your road test skills: do slow speed manoeuvres, parking, backing, and breathing will all ensure a higher probability of success.

How to Determine the Right-of-Way to Pass a Road Test and Stopping

Do you know what to do when you are faced with a complex traffic situation on your road test? Watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Pass Your Road Test First Time Coupon - youtube30 Click for COURSE - https://goo.gl/m8zBsR "GUARANTEED Pass Your Road Test "First Time" Hi there smart drivers. Rick with Smart Drive Test talking to you today about right-of-way and stopping when in doubt on a road test. Now one of the things that I tell students on road tests in terms of right-of-way, even though you have the right-of-way doesn't mean that you can go. Because the right-of-way is always given, it's never taken. So if another vehicle is going to push through and go forward, do not go because you're going to risk a crash. As well, remember you can be right or you can be 'dead right'. Because if you go because you think that you have the right of way and the other vehicle should give way to you, they may or may not. And remember, failing to give the right-of-way to other traffic on the roadway is one of the top reasons for crashes. So it's better to stop and wait and let the other traffic proceed - the other road user go and then proceed. And finally, I caught this on dashcam here at this intersection behind me...There are other road users there and I just simply stopped and waited, even though when I came up to the intersection--as you'll see in the footage here--I had the green light. I could have gone, but there was a vehicle around the corner that had stopped and pulled up on the sidewalk; there was a pedestrian; and there was a vehicle in the intersection making a left-hand turn. All of that created a complex traffic situation where I simply stopped and I waited and I figured out what the other road users were doing before I proceeded. And I got eye contact with the pedestrian on the side of the road before I proceeded around the corner on the right-hand turn. So without further ado, let's go to that footage. And now we're going to turn right at the next intersection here. You can see the solid line. Now you cannot cross into the bicycle lane. So you've got to go right up to the corner. And of course this guy's pulling up onto the sidewalk here. And I just waved that guy on because he was sort of sitting in the intersection and the light was going yellow to red. And I've got a pedestrian here. And I don't know whether the pedestrian's going or not. No, okay. And that's what you do if you're not sure. And as you saw I waited right until I got to the intersection. You almost have to do a 90-degree turn there to not deviate into the bicycle lane because of that solid white line. You cannot deviate into that bicycle lane. And as you saw there, I wasn't sure what other people were doing. So you saw that I just stopped and I waited. And that's what you have to do for the purposes of a road test. If you're the least bit unsure of what other road users are doing, just stop and wait for them to clear, or for them to get eye contact with you to ensure that you're going to be safe. That you're not going to go around there and that pedestrians going to step out. And she got eye contact with me and sort of nodded that I could go then I proceeded around the intersection. As well, the other guy that was turning - he was already sort of committed - his vehicle was turned slightly so I didn't turn in front of him because it's a defensive move on my part that I was waiting to see what that driver was going to do. And that's what happened. CONCLUSION Quick review of right-of-way on a road test. If you're in the least bit of doubt in any traffic situation, particularly at complex intersections like this one behind me here simply stop and wait for the other road users to clear the intersection. And then proceed and make sure that if there's a pedestrian or cyclist or some other road user on a scooter or whatnot that you get eye contact with them. Appropriate hand gestures--don't tell them to number one--and after you're certain that you have the right-of-way--that everybody else is giving you the right-of-way--then you can go. Because remember, you can be right or you can be dead right. And as well, the right-of-way is always given, it is not taken. If you take the right-of-way and expect other road users to give you the right-of-way you're going to be in a very high-risk situation where you could be involved in a crash. Because failing to give the right-of-way or failing to yield is one of the top reasons for crashes. Good luck on your road test! ******************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/ Music: BoxCat Games Nameless: The Hackers RPG Soundtrack - Epic Song

How to Turn Left and Right to Pass A Road Test | Pass a Road Test Smart
 
07:29
Turning is a required skill to pass a road test and learn how to drive. Learn how to turn - watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest For new drivers, turning pose the biggest challenge when learning to drive. Turning combines the 4 fundamental components of any road test: 1) space management: 2) speed management; 3) observation; 4) communication. When turning, the driver must know the rules for right-of-way. He or she must demonstrate due care and control of the vehicle at all times. And to showcase this ability, the driver must be competent with the primary controls of the vehicle. The most common challenge is speed control. It is important to slow to the appropriate speed before commencing the turn. In other words, brake first and then steer through the corner. If you look in your path of travel, the vehicle will go where you are looking. When turning right, the vehicle's speed should be no more than 10-15kph (8-10mph) and when turning left the vehicle's speed should be 15-25kph (12-18mph). Getting the vehicle to the correct speed first is one of the key components of turning successfully. As well, the slower you travel with any vehicle, the sharper it's going to turn. Every turn or lateral movement in vehicle requires 2 shoulder (head) checks minimum. One head (shoulder) check approximately 1/2 block from the turn, and another immediately preceding the turn. Good luck on your road test. ************************ www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

8 Steps to Adjust Controls of Vehicle to Pass Road Test First Time :: 1st Lesson | Road Test Smart
 
10:13
For new drivers, setting up the vehicle is a must for control and comfort. Watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest These 8 steps will work for any vehicle; follow the steps to set up the vehicle in preparation to learn how to drive. 1) Key 2) Seat 3) Seatbelt 4) Mirrors 5) Dash 6) Vents 7) Brake 8) Locks 1) Place the key in the ignition; therefore, you will know where it is and you can locate it easily. If your jurisdiction does not allow the key to be in the ignition, put it in one of the cubbies that is easily accessible. 2) The seat is 2 pieces, The bottom piece should be adjusted so that the your foot easily touches the floor behind the brake pedal. And there should be slight bend in the knee. The back of the driver's seat should be adjusted so that when you have both hands on the steering wheel at the 9 and 3 position, there is a slight bend in the elbows. And you should be sitting--at minimum--25 centimetres from the steering wheel in the even that the air bag deploys. The head restraint should be adjusted so that the top is in line with the top of the driver's ears. 3) The seatbelt must be fastened. It is law now in most places in the world. The lap portion should be over the hips and low. The shoulder strap should be over the shoulder and not rubbing against your neck. Most vehicles have a height adjustment on the seat belt. 4) Adjust the centre mirror so that the top of the mirror is lined up with the top of the rear window. In the driver's side of the mirror you should be able to see just a tiny bit of your head. The two outside mirrors on the vehicle should be adjusted so that you can see just a tiny bit of the vehicle on the inside of the mirror. And the horizon should be across the centre of the mirror. Adjusting for the horizon in the mirror may take some practice, but essentially the horizon is where the ground meets the sky. 5) There shouldn't be anything--sunglasses, tissue boxes, paper, etc--on the dash that could potentially fly off and cause a distraction. As well, there shouldn't be anything on the rear window ledge either. In the event of a crash, a tissue box has the the same impact as a brick, and could potentially cause serious injury to the vehicle occupants. 6) The two outer vents should be pointed to the outside of the vehicle and vertically at the mid-point. The two centre vents should be pointed to the centre of the vehicle with one pointed vertically up and the other vertically down. This arrangement of the vent will provide optimum circulation in the vehicle, and in the winter the best arrangement for maximum defrosting. 7) Push the brake pedal all the way to the floor with your right foot; you should be able to put the toe of your left foot under the brake pedal. And when you depress the brake pedal, it should not drop farther after it stops. If it either stops or your cannot fit your toe under the brake pedal, take it to a mechanic and have the brakes check by a qualified person. 8) Most modern vehicles will lock the doors automatically after attaining a slow speed. Still, it is a good practice to lock the doors before departing. If you are involved in a crash, the locked doors will ensure your safety by keeping the doors closed and maintaining the integrity of the vehicle. In other words, the vehicle is stronger with the doors closed. As well, locked doors keep you in and thieves out. Good luck with your driving lesson! ***************************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Coupon "youtube30" CLICK LINK https://www.smartdrivetest.com/pass-your-driver-s-license-road-test-first-time-guaranteed SEE TOPICS BELOW Use practice driving test questions to identify gaps in you knowledge, not as a measure of your ability. After taking the test, and determining which questions you got wrong, go to the driver's manual and look up the specific topics that you need to research and better understand. Do not read the driver's manual cover-to-cover. These driving manuals are technical, terse and quite frankly "boring as sawdust." Most driving tests in this is day-and-age are going to be computer based. Only in remote areas are driving exams to earn your learners are these tests going to be paper based. All the questions will be multiple choice. When taking a multiple-choice test, read the question carefully and identify the keywords. After identifying the keywords, read all the choices carefully. Too often, students will pick the first answer thinking it is right, when in fact there is a better choice farther down the list. And like driving, practice, practice, practice taking multiple-choice exams. The internet has many practice sites, and these questions will help you prepare. Use the practice test questions as a tool to identify gaps in your knowledge and learn the language of driving. When undertaking the test, ensure that you read the questions carefully, identify keywords, and read all the questions before making a selection. Good luck on your road test. Finally, "pick the best answer; not necessarily the right answer." *************************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Do you know the basic rules for CDL log books in the United States' - watch the video? Subscribe Today! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Outlined are the rules for driving, work and rest time in the United States. This log book information will keep you in compliance with hours of service regulations in the United States. In the United States, you are allowed to drive a maximum of 11 hours. The 11 hours of driving must occur within a 14 hour window. In other words, if you start driving at 8am, you cannot drive after 10pm at night. As well, you must take a 30-minute break at or before the 8 hours of your work day. For example if you start working at 7am, you must take a 30 minute break at or before 3pm in the afternoon. And between each work period, you must have 10 consecutive hours off-duty. For example, if you stop your work day at 6pm in the evening, you cannot drive again until 4am. And again, the off-duty time must be consecutive. In the United States, the 2 work cycles are 60 hours in 7 days if the company for which you work does not operate 24/7. If the trucking company operates 24/7--in other words it never closes--you can work 70 hours in 8 days. The most common violations for CDL drivers is working more hours than allowed by the work cycle. Learn how to calculate your work cycle here: https://youtu.be/QauNRJtsEfo Log sheets must be handed into the company every 13 days, but most companies have drivers hand in log sheets at the end of every trip. And the driver's log book must be supported by other documents - bills of lading, fuel and lodging receipts, etc. See video: https://youtu.be/P6xKGi04xmI You must have the number of log sheets in the vehicle with you as per the cycle on which you are working. For example, if you're working on the 60 hours in 7 days, you must have 7 days in the vehicle. And for the other cycle 8 days in the vehicle. Supporting documents only have to be kept in the vehicle for the current trip. ******************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Learn how to correctly merge onto and off a freeway, motorway, or limited access highways. Watch the video! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Some on-ramps and off-ramps to the freeway or interstate are obstructed by trees, berms or other fixed objects. It is important for drivers to look as far down the freeway as possible and get their vehicle up to the posted speed limit, or the traffic flow, whichever is less. In North America, the on-ramp transitions to the acceleration lane when the yellow line goes to white. At this juncture, you are on the acceleration lane and should be picking up speed. When exiting the freeway, do not slow down until you are completely in the deceleration lane. Once there, then you can begin to slow the vehicle. If you are unfamiliar with the off-ramp, obey the cautionary signs so that you can maintain control of your vehicle.

How to Prevent being Rear-Ended in a Traffic :: Defensive Driving
 
09:23
Do you know how to protect yourself from being rear-ended in traffic? Watch the video! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Where to Stop in Traffic for Defensive Driving | Passing a Road Test :: https://youtu.be/KW_R-MkNqKU Distracted Driving - Facebook :: https://www.facebook.com/AmazingOrFunny/videos/vb.401527696578764/1323463247718533/?type=2&theater Sitting Duck :: Driver Education Video - If you know of this training video, could you drop us a note - thank you. When teaching new drivers to drive, driving instructors teach learner drivers to stop approximately one vehicle length from the vehicle in front. When stopping the driver must be able to see the rear tires of the vehicle in front making clear contact with the pavement. In doing so, the driver controls the space in front of his/her vehicle. There are several reasons for leaving ample space between you and the vehicle in front: • prevents the vehicle in front rolling back into you if the driver is a novice driving standard • if the vehicle breaks down, you can drive around the vehicle without backing • if all vehicles at an intersection allowed one vehicle length of space between vehicles, all the vehicle could move off more quickly when the traffic light turned green • most important, that space is good defensive posturing to prevent being rear-ended by the vehicles coming up from behind When you stop in traffic and you are the last vehicle in the queue, you must be looking in your mirrors to ensure that the traffic behind is stopping. If you see that the vehicle behind is not stopping, you can move forward or around the vehicle in front to prevent the runaway vehicle behind crashing into your vehicle. As well, when you see the vehicle coming up from behind, tap your brake pedal repeatedly to flash the brake lights. The flashing light may get the other driver's attention and allow him/her time to stop the vehicle and prevent you from being rear-ended. When stopped on highways, freeways or motorways, be sure that you are keeping a vigilant lookout for traffic behind to ensure that it is coming to a stop. Activating your 4-way flasher is a must. The flashing lights will attract the attention of other drivers due to the fact that our eyes are drawn to light and movement. Tapping your brake pedal too will flash your brake lights and alert the drivers to the rear that you are stopped or stopping. Any time that you are stopped on a high-speed roadway, be hyper vigilant and somewhat afraid. You are in a dangerous place and should be at the highest level of defensive posturing. Good luck on your road test! ************************ www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

Here, alternative reference points are offered for parallel parking. When learning to parallel park, start in a parking lot where there are few vehicles and use cones or other fixed obstacles. When you get comfortable with that exercise, move to parking behind one vehicle. After becoming comfortable with that, move to parking between two vehicles. Remember to go slow so that you have time to both observe and operate the primary controls. ********************************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/ Frontier Driving Academy: "Perfect Parallel Parking to Pass the Road Test"—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39wNzDlW9Kg Conduite Facile: "Parallel Parking - Aligning Yourself Properly"—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mpo6fcaWfC4

SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Of the slow-speed manoeuvres required for the purposes of a driver's license road test, the 2-point reverse turn is one of the easier requirements. Essentially, you are turning the vehicle around simply by backing around a corner. And the manoeuvre is similar to the set-up for the parallel parking setup: How to Parallel Park | Pass a Road Test - https://youtu.be/U0uAFVeDUjs When the driving examiner indicates that you will execute a 2-point reverse turn, you mirror, signal, and shoulder check and move over to the side of the road past where you are going to turn around. Immediately upon attaining the side of the road, put the vehicle into reverse to activate the reverse lights. When stopping on the side of the road, you should be able to see the cross street through the rear passenger window of the vehicle. Leave your signal on, do a 360° scan and turn the wheel all the way to the left and proceed to back around the corner. When the vehicle is around the corner, look forward and bring the steering wheel back to straight. Steering wheels on passenger vehicles move 11/2 to 2 turns in either direction. On most passenger vehicles, it is 1½ turns; therefore, if you bring the steering wheel back 1½ turns, and when the logo is upright, the wheels will be straight. Bring the vehicle to a stop and signal to the left. Do a 360° scan. When the way is clear you can proceed in the opposite direction. Those are the step-by-step procedures for a 2-Point Reverse Turn, which is a required skill for a road test. ********************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest Music by: BoxCat Games Nameless: The Hackers RPG Soundtrack - Epic Song Mean Streetz— Downloaded from YouTube Audio Library

Road Sign Classifications | Passing a Road Test
 
10:42
Road signs are divided into broad classifications. Watch the video to learn these! SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest REGULATORY SIGNS The first and most important are regulatory signs. The root word of regulatory is regulations, which means these signs are the law and must be obeyed. CAUTION, ADVISORY, or WARNING SIGNS The next class is cautionary signs, which often warn you of hazards, changes to road conditions, and obstructions along the roadway. CONSTRUCTION SIGNS Next are construction signs which are most prominent during the summer time. Many construction zones have reduced speed limits and these must be obeyed, especially during a road test. As well, reduced speeds in construction zones are often accompanied with increased fines. Action permitted and action not-permitted are another class. DESTINATION & SERVICE SIGNS And the final class are the destination and services signs. These signs convey information through shape, colour, and/or the symbols there on. Knowing your road signs are critical to being successful on both a learner’s and on-road road test.

To pass your road test do NOT drive on painted islands when making a left-hand turn - watch the video. SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest Painted islands are most often found preceding intersections that have a left-hand turning lane. And these painted islands are often yellow, which means these separate traffic travelling in opposite directions. To pass your road test, treat a painted island as if it were constructed of concrete & raised curbs. The purpose of the painted island is to create a buffer of space between opposing lanes of traffic. It increases safety near or at an intersection as traffic transitions from 2 straight through lanes, to 3 lanes – one of which is a turning lane. If the traffic in the left lane prevents you from moving into the turning lane, but you have to drive over the painted island to get to the turning lane - DON'T! If you drive over the painted island on a road test, you will lose major demerits, or you could outright fail your road test. Never, never drive over a painted island on a road test! *************************** www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

If no curb is present, you must situate the steer tires so that the vehicle rolls off the roadway in the unlikely event that the brakes release. There are 4 hill parks: 1) uphill with a curb 2) downhill with a curb 3) uphill without a curb 4) downhill without a curb For three of the hill parks you turn the steer tires in toward the curb. ONLY on the uphill with a curb do you turn the steer tires out toward the centre of the roadway. When a curb is present, you control the vehicle's speed and allow the front steer tire to rest against the curb, thus securing the vehicle against inadvertent movement. If no curb is present, the steer tires are turned towards the shoulder of the road for both uphill and downhill parking. It is the 3 & 1 rule - 3 of the 4 hill parks the steer tires are turned toward the shoulder of the road. ********************* www.smartdrivetest.com www.facebook.com/smartdrivetest www.twitter.com/smartdrivetest www.instagram.com/smartdrivetest/

SUBSCRIBE TODAY! ► http://youtube.com/c/smartdrivetest FOR YOUR ROAD TEST - DO NOT--DO NOT--TAKE OFF YOUR SEATBELT!! When reversing, you do not have to wear your seatbelt, And it is difficult to have your seatbelt on and move your body into the correct position in order to look out the rear window of the vehicle. Most backing crashes occur because drivers move the vehicle before looking. It is important that you look before moving the vehicle, and look and observe the entire time that you are backing. As well, back slowly—no more than a walking pace—for several reasons: First, the vehicle turns sharper the slower you travel. Second, travelling slowly gives you time to observe. Third, going slowing gives you more time to react. And finally, if you do hit something, a slow moving vehicle will do less damage than one travelling faster. If you are having difficulty reversing go to an empty parking lot or other area where there isn’t any traffic and set up some cones. Practice reversing in a straight line first, and then practice reversing around a corner. And after you’re comfortable with those manoeuvres, practice reversing into a stall park.
