SGI Road Test Myths Part 2

Road Test Myths

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:

SGI pays jaywalkers to walk in front of road testers.

No, they do it for free! Kidding, they’re doing that on their own. If you do come across a jaywalker on your road test, tell the examiner you see them but do not wave them on or encourage them to cross in front of you because that could cause confusion to drivers behind you or in the lane next to you. If a jaywalker runs in front of you, slow down or stop for them – don’t hit them just because they’re not supposed to be there! Part of being a skilled driver is being a defensive driver.

 

Road test tip #2

Stop signs and stopping positions

  • So, where do you stop? At the stop sign? At the crosswalk? Sometimes stop signs are conveniently erected on a tree or post that’s already at the intersection and this placement may not be a good place to stop. Your stopping position is determined by markings on the road – at the nearest crosswalk, whether marked or not, or at a clearly marked stop line. If there is no stop line, sidewalk or crosswalk, you must stop within 3 m of the intersection in an urban area or within 10 m of the intersection in a rural area.

We want you to be safe on the road and stay out of accidents – but if the worse happens you can count on the Trusted Regina Collison Repair experts at Bergens Autobody!
