I also failed getting on my road test twice.
Basically, I didn't look around enough. Over exaggerate checking your blind spots, and all 3 mirrors, every 5 seconds. And honestly, every 5 seconds, check them in the routine you were taught.
Look at any upcoming corners to make sure a car isn't going to accidentally miss the stop sign. When a railway crossing comes up, make sure to check both sides BEFORE you reach it.
Practice backing into lots of parking spots. Go to a mall parking lot, and back into several empty ones. Then one on your right side, then one on your left side. Eventually, a car on both sides.
If you are on a road that has 2 lanes one direction, stay in the right hand lane, unless you have a turn coming up. When you change lanes, let the turn signal click at least 3 times before you move over, and keep it clicking until you are completely in the new lane.
To the person who said that you don't do parallel parking anymore, but do 3-point turns...how are they even related? Did they take parallel parking out of the test, and replaced it with 3PTs?
