They drove me to an area I had never driven in before. In one 30 kph zone along the side of a large school, I did 37 kph. I instantly fail.
I had never driven in that area before so I didn’t know there was a 30 zone there.
Speed is probably the biggest cause of failure on driving tests.
You are missing the point of the exam. This exam is a chance to show your ability to move a car safely and legally, anywhere because your license allows you to drive anywhere in this province, this country, this entire continent, and in fact throughout most of the world.
Knowing every sign and place BEFORE you drive is missing the more important issue.
You must be able to drive ANYWHERE safely and legally including both the places you are familiar with and the places you have never seen before.
