Speed: Too Fast / Too Slow / Enter / Leave / Impedes

Speed is an essential factor in making turns safely. The process of turning requires the driver to co-ordinate the speed and steering to achieve the correct turning arc. Applicants who lack the steering skills to make a correct turn may overcompensate by driving too slowly, but it is important not to drive either so slowly as to impede traffic or in excess of the normal pace of traffic. Overconfidence or misjudgement could also cause drivers to enter or leave a turn much too quickly. In each of these cases, the examiner will consider the circumstances in assigning a score.
