Common questions answered - Have I got to be perfect with my manoeuvres first time or I’ll fail the test?

Each month I will be posting a new help topic covering the more common questions I get asked. For the 3rd question of the series we're looking at:

Have I got to be perfect with my manoeuvres first time or I’ll fail the test?

No you don’t. Unlike driving you have a chance to correct and put your manoeuvres right before you fail them.

When driving, if you get a roundabout wrong, its wrong. There’s no rewind button or correcting it. Its done, its done wrong and it’s a fail. The driving bits you can get wrong are things like lane choice or directions, you can of course just go the wrong way safely and find a way to turn around and try again.

The manoeuvres are slow and controlled and can be put right.

For example you are reversing into a parking bay. You check once you’re in and notice that you’re over the line slightly. Simply drive forward slowly steering the opposite way to the line you are over and straighten back up. Reverse back within the lines now to finish the manoeuvre and get your pass!
