Hey guys, let me share my driving test experience with you all.
Test timing- 16:00
Test Venue- Shaan Cars, Nashik.
Although I was a bit late to the venue, when I reached there the sales executive guided me to the MDS room where the instructor was sitting. He greeted me and inquired about license photocopy (Albeit, I was not carrying it), he was kind enough to take a one from the showroom.
Then he gave me two papers, one of them carried few questions, actually they were not questions but few words written, and you need to tick in subsequent two boxes as correct or incorrect. I exactly did not understand the way the questions were put up, but did as the instructor said.
After that I was expecting him to start the simulator, and ask me to give a test on it, but to my surprise he gave me a key and I followed him all the way to the parking lot where Wagon R was standing which was used by people to learn driving. I pressed the unlocking button two times but nothing happened, then he said me it was not working and I need to unlock the car manually by inserting the key into keyhole.
Thereafter he asked me to open bonnet and put the strut up. Following are the series of questions which followed later.
1. What documents you need once you sit in a car.
2. Locate brake fluid tank, coolant tank, wiper water tank.
3. How would you check the oil level?
4. What do you do before sitting in a car?
After that he asked me to sit in car and drive. I sat on driver's seat, put seat belt on, adjusted all three mirrors, and then he asked me the meaning of symbols on instrument cluster (told him). Then I drove the car straight for about 100 m, reversed the car and parked it in it's original position. The car which I drove was one of the worst kind, the 1st, 2nd and reverse gears were too notchy and very hard to engage
That was all about the test. After little talking he told me that almost everyone is passed from our sides, and rest depends on your luck.
