25 Pulling up at the side of the road

Position / stoppingAt various points on the test the examiner will ask you to pull up in a safe, legal and convenient place on the left. You will be required to do this just before undertaking any of the standard test manoeuvres.

What the examiner is looking for
Once the examiner has asked you to pull up on the left he or she will be looking for you to

  1. Use the MSM routine correctly
  2. Select a safe, legal and convenient place to pull up
  3. Steer towards the kerb without striking it or being too wide from the kerb as you use the brake progressively to slow the car down
  4. Use the clutch just as the car stops
  5. Secure the car when stationary.
