Driver examiners have heard all kinds of stories and myths about road tests over the years. They’ve compiled some of the frequently heard ones and provided official responses to set the record straight and to hopefully help calm your nerves before your road test.
There are many Road Test Myths such as:
You can’t wear sunglasses, talk or turn on the radio.
We hear these all the time! If you’re a talker, talk. If the sun is in your eyes, wear your shades. If music makes you calm, turn it on, just not too loud.
Road test tip #1
- Traffic signals
- Red means stop. When approaching a red light, you must stop and remain stopped until the light changes. If you want to turn right, you may do so (unless there is a sign restricting this), but only after stopping and yielding the right of way to pedestrians and to any vehicles travelling through the intersection.
- Yellow means caution. When approaching a yellow light at an intersection, you must stop before entering the crosswalk. If you have already entered the intersection, or cannot stop safely, proceed with caution. The yellow light is not a reason to speed through the intersection to avoid stopping. You can often predict the appearance of a yellow light by taking note of how long the light has been green and by watching for the Don’t Walk light, especially if it is flashing or has a number count-down.
- Green means go. When approaching a green light at an intersection, you may turn left, right or drive straight through the intersection unless a sign prohibits any of these movements. If you want to turn left you can enter the intersection on a green light, but you must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. If traffic is heavy, you may be forced to complete your turn on an amber or red light. Running yellow and red lights make it difficult for drivers already in the intersection to turn left, which could result in traffic jams. Think about how your actions affect other road users.
