Basically, the overall impression of your driving skills will be evaluated in the practical examination. If this fits or you behave confidently in a complicated traffic situation, minor mistakes are sometimes overlooked.
Failure to pass the test may also result from repetition or accumulation of various mistakes, such as
- Poor traffic monitoring
- Non-adapted speed
- Passing school and city buses that stop at bus stops with hazard lights, at more than walking speed, but not more than 20 km/h.
- Incorrect spacing
- Failure to brake
- Failure to comply with the legal driving requirement
- Non-observance of traffic signs
- Long hesitation at crossings and junctions
- Incorrect or omitted classification in one-way streets
- Incorrect or omitted flashing
- Incorrect or neglected use of brakes and existing deceleration systems
- Mistakes during vehicle operation
- Mistakes in environmentally conscious and energy-saving driving.
If any of these mistakes happen to you, stay calm and don't go crazy. Nothing is lost yet. The calmer you stay, the less likely you are to make another mistake.
And don't worry - the Audit Directive states: "Rules should not be interpreted in a petty way; good performance should also be taken into account". This means that you can "iron out" mistakes by, for example, being particularly proactive in another situation.
The most important thing during the whole test is: Try to stay as calm as possible and concentrate only on the traffic. Don't worry about what just happened, turn all your attention to driving and traffic.
