Unexpected events

Predicting what will happen during your driving test is near impossible.

If something unexpected happens, you are expected to have enough experience in order to make a safe decision given the circumstances.

For example, if children are standing in between two parked cars, you should cover the brake and slow down and/or change lanes.
