*

“On my first test, they asked me to reverse into a bay of cones. I put my foot down, reversed at high speed and completely flattened the cones. I did the girlie thing and burst into tears, but the examiner was having none of it. He told me to get out of the car and apply for another test,” says film star Sienna Miller.

1. Observation at junctions – ineffective observation and judgement.
2. Reverse parking – ineffective observation and/or a lack of accuracy.
3. Use of mirrors – not checking or not acting on information.
4. Reversing round a corner – ineffective observation or lack of accuracy.
5. Incorrect use of signals – not cancelling, or giving misleading signals.
6. Moving away safely – ineffective observations.
7. Incorrect positioning on the road - particularly at roundabouts or on bends.
8. Lack of steering control – steering too early or too late.
9. Incorrect position to turn right – at junctions and/or in one-way streets.
