Driving test on friday - any tips?

My driving test is this friday, taking a Class 3A test at SSDC at 3.20pm. I chose the timing as it is after the lunch crowd and before the evening go home crowd. Was wondering if anyone has taken the test there before and have any tips to share. Not that I doubt my own driving skills, but i heard the testers have a quota to pass candidates and private candidates are often the ones to meet the axe...

The feeling I got when I was using the circuit was that it was very tight! So hard to look out for the left side! However, circuit shouldn't be much of a problem if you tune your mirrors down and keep more to the right, where you are able to see the curb better

Re: Driving test on friday - any tips?

I often wonder about the quota as well. By right the testers are under traffic police, so there shouldn't be any bias, especially against private candidates... However, it seems that testers are 'attached' to schools and hence could lead to such rumours. Anyone able to clarify this?

Re: Driving test on friday - any tips?

Seems quite ridiculous to have quotas leh..... why wld they implement such a system that will obviously come under fire if found out?

Re: Driving test on friday - any tips?

Not sure if the system has changed.. But when I took my test 10 yrs ago, I got my result almost immediately after the test. The tester didn't go discuss with other testers, so it was impossible for them to check on the quota and see who should pass and who shouldn't..

One advice.. When the tester give you the feedback, scold you for certain mistakes that you make.. Give the apologetic and regret look and just agree with it. Got this feeling that if you try to defend yourself and fight back, they might think that you shouldn't drive with that kind of attitude and just add a couple more points to fail you.

The computation of test scores is done electronically nowadays... you see testers walking around with tablets but how do you explain plenty of stories of testers purposedly failing students? My friend did not make a single mistake and ended up with 43 points, it seems a bit ridiculous here...
