A special thanks to almighty allah :-) for passing me in rta road test conducted at BELHASA, Al wasl (10:00Am).
So, I am Wajahat from dubai ya3ni local, I went to driving center at 9:30am and threw my Learning permit and RTA test confirmation letter in the queue box the box is located just left side of the theory center gate, The confirmation letter is to collected from the room number 3, RTA dept. And i did :-).
At the time when my examinar ya3ni شرطة he called my name and i stood up and said 'salam' I know arabic so introduced my self, Well maybe if you're lucky inshallah you may get few examinar like this as i got alhamdulilah he was really great and cooperated, It is recommended to innitiate a small talk if possible as they would really appreciate.
After i am done i went, Most of the time your name is in the order amd examinar will say you to sit in the car but i was second and got chance to second drive.
We were 3 guys (1 Uae, 1 Pakistan, 1 Bangladesh) The pakistani got his named called at first and he went to the driving seat, The drills which is to be done before car or engine start was all perfect but the sudden, He made a slight collidable mistake while getting out of the RTA parking lot his car's bonnet was about to touch, I said see front then examinar said me 'no words please' i said 2sf (sorry) And we continued,
Pakistani guy's waypoint:-
Parking lot exit.
Stop sign, Turn right.
Right, Then merging.
2 times line change Left to right suddenly and emergency parking.
Then my turn, He called my name and i said 'afwan' Means welcome.
Emergency parking exit.
Turn right, To merging roads (100 kmph speed).
Then finish, I was so surprised that he drove with me only 2:56 time lol.
Bangladeshi guys waypoint:-
Emergency parking exit.
Roundbout straight, Right bend towards merging.
Then Exit towards our school.
Then left, He made a mistake here, read full post i'll tell :-).
So, When turn came i looked behind through the left mirror and then rear view mirror, Please note that never move the vehicle untill your shoulder/head check is completed. I did and went to the road and he said me Go right, I indicated and whild braking i looked into center mirror by moving my head not just eyeballs, Here most of the people just get bumped ya3ni fail. So i did this and then i had road mergings in this place or task many many of them fail the test because they are going into the yellow zone and this is major one :-). You're failed. (Advice:- Ifyou can't find enough gap/room for your vehicle so just damn stop your vehicle complete stop or else if traffic is not much just slow down to 70 or 60 and see and go, Process is needed same as line change.)
The bangali guys turn-:-
His 3rd try, I said him that dont worry this is your final and last he smiled at me and i just got slight feeling that he will pass because he was really good guy tho.
He sat inside the car, Examiners want safe drivers so While entering your vehicle please check the left mirror in order to avoid crash, This is also de-merit point :-). (12 De-merit minor points you are pass).
He drove off and was going and all of sudden i noticed a mistake but alhamdulilah examinar did not and i did not want to tell him because he will fail and thats not good :-) the mistake was while merging he accelarated damn hard that our car was roaring hard i thought this is major mistake and comes under sudden accelerate but no because we have to and the other mistake was no head/shoulder check this is also minor point, But oh my god He passed the exam without single fault :-D.
My tips to you people is just easy please read carefully,
- Remember to initiate a small talk between you and examinar (Not all get this chances as some examinars are really serious and strict).
- Listen to music not like titanic or some, Listen arabic song or its better to read quran or holy book :-).
- Never say a single word unless you are told to.
- Never argue, If he points a mistake say him 'Yes ya sir i wont repeat' <smile>.
- Dont be over smart or feel too over confident, Examinars want small reason to fail you.
- Wear great clothes, Apply perfume or attar, Dont wear sunglasses, No funky clothes, You must look like a manager of a bank lol :D.
- Arrive early in the school and observe other trainee users and imagine that you are in seat of them and what you will do.
- Make sure to look in your dashboard lights as i mentioned that they just want to fail you for silly reasons, He may remove his belt while your eyes are on the drill and you may not notice 5alaas, You are fail.
- As shams mentioned thinking of mistakes will ruin your test, Just think you will take your girlfriend or wife withyou after you pass inshallah.
- Before leaving or entering your vehicle check your back and observe your surroundings.
- In road dont sing or look here there, Fokus on the driving.
- Silent your mobile phone, Dont take photo or video this is serious case and may leads to license BAN.
- Dont shake your car, Dont brake hardly, Dont speed up suddenly unless you are in heavy road.
