Default Drivers Test

Anybody have any last minute helpful hints on a way to make sure that I pass? Im an amazing driver, everyone tells me that there is no way that I will fail, but I'm afraid of Dan the failing man. So any hints would be very nice!

Make sure you know how to parallel, and watch your speed on the residential side streets. I think it'* 25mph so make sure you stick to it. Make sure to check you blind spots when changing lanes and turning. Oh just in case if you park on a hill remember to turn your wheels toward the curb.

make sure all the lights and stuff work on the vehicle you are being tested on. I would have had 100% but I had a parking light out that they docked me for. Make sure you know the vehicle

stop BEFORE the stop sign, not after it. BEFORE the crosswalks, not in the middle of them

Be aware of the lane line types outside the DMV. Or local one is in a spot where you can't technically turn left out of the driveway because of the way the center line is striped. They like to tell new drivers to turn left then mark them down for it.

Thanks everybody so yeah, I passed, 8 pts off for not checking the intersection twice, and not checking my blind spot twice while pulling to the side of the road(which I did do so there is six more pts, but she must not have seen me) But anyway so i'm happy anyway!
