Changing to third on approach to traffic lights

I've read that you should change to third on approach to traffic lights if they have been green since you've first seen them. Do you agree with this? Today I got a yellow when approaching traffic lights going 50km/h while in fourth. I braked and changed to second before coming to a stop but it all

How to prepare for questions in practical test

But you are also asked Rules of the Road. You can be asked "When can you enter a junction box?" And you can get a blue right from the get-go if your answers are not to the tester's satisfaction. Would be nice to avoid a blue on this

Left reverse

Thanks for your advice! Tried the Left Reverse again today without putting down the mirror and I was fit to cry after about an hour of hitting the curb or going too wide. With the mirror up in its normal position, I couldn't even get a sense of where the turning point was anymore. Maybe the curb I

Left reverse

I can't see the back wheel so I get confused when people mention it. I know that the back handle is where the front part of the back wheel is.

Left reverse

I've completed my edts and the instructor told me that I'm ready for the test but that my Left Reverse needs to improve. I'm really struggling with it and want to practice it at home by constructing a corner with a length of hose. What is the typical radius of a corner used for this manoeuvre?

Proper use of brakes when stopped

I had one of my last EDT's yesterday and my instructor threw a spanner in the works for me when he said I shouldn't have my foot on the foot brake for more than a few seconds when stopped. So, I need to practice this a good bit before my next lesson and should have asked more questions after the
