BBDC Test Route 1 (Part 1)

Test Route 1

Step 1: Once your car is out of the BBDC gate, the tester will instruct you to make a right turn at the traffic light junction. Check the rear mirror, signal right, check the right side mirror and check the right blind spot before doing a lane change to the first lane.

Step 2: Prepare to make a right turn. Move your car into the pocket if it is not occupied. Ensure your right signal light is still on; check the right side mirror and right blind spot before making a right turn into the first lane.

Step 3: Signal left immediately just when you've completed the right turn into the first lane. The tip here is to signal left early to tell the vehicle behind you that you are making a lane change to the second lane. Check the rear mirror, check the left side mirror and the left blind spot before changing to the second lane. Apply the same safety check before changing to the third lane.

Step 4: You will approach a bus stop. If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, do slow down to allow the bus to exit. Do this to avoid an accident because you are traveling at about 60km/h on the 70km/h speed limit road.

Step 5: Go straight. Before approaching the traffic light junction, release your foot from the accelerator pedal and prepare to stop if the traffic light turns to amber. Once your car has reached the last direction arrow, step on the accelerator pedal gradually to pick up speed to continue straight.

Step 6: You will approach a bus stop. If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, do slow down to allow the bus to exit and to avoid an accident since you are traveling at about 60km/h.

Step 7: Go straight. Stay in the third lane because you will be turning left after the junction. Before approaching the traffic light junction, release your foot from the accelerator pedal to prepare to stop if the traffic light turns to amber. Once your car has reached the last direction arrow, step on the accelerator pedal gradually to pick up speed to continue straight.

Step 8: Prepare to turn left. Notice the left turn only directional sign on the third lane. If you are going straight, remember to stay in the second lane before the traffic light junction. Signal left, slow down, look at the left side mirror and check the left blind spot about one car length before making the left turn into the lane.

Step 9: Left turn at the stop line. Signal left and stop behind the stop line. Once it is safe to make a left turn, check the left side mirror and check the left blind spot before turning left.

Step 10: Travel at about 25km/h. Be careful not to cross over the double white lane or overtake any vehicle here. Do not stop too close behind the buses near the bus stop.

Step 11: Prepare to turn left at the stop line. Signal left and stop behind the stop line. Once it is safe to turn left, check the left side mirror and the left blind spot before turning left.

Step 12: Slow down to about 20km/h before the zebra crossing over the road hump. Look left and right for pedestrians.

Step 13: Travel at about 25km/h. Do not stop too close to the buses near the bus stop.

Step 14: Prepare to turn right at the stop line. Signal right and stop behind the stop line. Once it is safe to turn right, check the right side mirror and right blind spot before turning right.

Step 15: After the right turn, note the road junction on the left. Do not change lanes at the road junction. Just after the road junction, check the rear mirror, signal left, check the left blind spot and change to the 2nd lane. Remember to move the steering wheel very slightly to the left to avoid changing lanes abruptly. If you are not able to change to the left lane due to heavy traffic, keep the left signal light on but remain on the first lane. This is because you will be turning right at the junction at about 200 metres ahead.

Step 16: After traveling for about 50 metres in the second lane, prepare to change to the first lane. Check the rear mirror, signal right, check the right blind spot and change to the first lane.

Step 17: Slow down, check the right side mirror and check the right blind spot before turning right at the junction into the first lane of the road.

Step 18: After the right turn to the first lane, signal left but do not change lanes at the zig-zag lines. Make the lane change to the left only after the zig-zag lines. Check the rear mirror, signal left and check left blind spot before making the lane change to the second lane.

Step 19: If you are not able to make the lane change to the second lane, be careful at the bus stop if there is a bus in the lane. If you are already in the second lane and there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, do slow down to allow the bus exit.

Step 20: Before approaching the traffic lights, release your foot from the accelerator pedal and look out for pedestrians.

Step 21: Notice the yellow box on the road. If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, you must slow down and stop outside the yellow box. You must always give way to buses exiting from the bus lane.

Step 22: Go straight. Before approaching the traffic lights, release your foot from the accelerator pedal and look out for pedestrians.

Step 23: Notice the yellow box on the road. If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, you must slow down and stop outside the yellow box. You must always give way to buses exiting from the bus lane. Also note that there is not enough space for one car length between the traffic light junction and the yellow box. You should stop behind the yellow box if the traffic light is red.

Step 24: Prepare to turn left at the traffic light junction. Before approaching the traffic lights, release your foot from the accelerator pedal and look out for pedestrians. Check the left side mirror and check the left blind spot before turning left.

Step 25: Signal right to prepare to do a lane change to the right before the junction. It is dangerous to lane change near the junction. You will be making a U-turn at about 150 metres in front.

Step 26: Before entering the U-turn filter lane, check the right side mirror and check the right blind spot before entering. Slow down when you are in the filter lane.

Step 27: Perform a U-turn here. Proceed to make the turn only when the first lane has no fast approaching car and the second lane has no car parallel to your car while you make the turn.

Step 28: After making the U-turn, pick up speed and immediately signal left. Do not do a left lane change in the yellow box. Check the rear mirror, the left side mirror and left blind spot before changing to the second lane after the yellow box.

Step 29: Go straight. Before approaching the traffic light junction, release your foot from the accelerator pedal to prepare to stop if the traffic light turns to amber. Once your car has reached the last direction arrow, step on the accelerator pedal gradually to pick up speed to continue straight.

Step 30: If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, you must always give way to buses exiting from the bus lane.

Step 31: Go straight. Before approaching the traffic light junction, release your foot from the accelerator pedal and prepare to stop if the traffic light turns to amber. Once your car has reached the last direction arrow, step on the accelerator pedal gradually to pick up speed to continue straight.

Step 32: If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, you must always give way to buses exiting from the bus lane.

Step 33: Go straight. Before approaching the traffic light junction, release your foot from the accelerator pedal so as to prepare to stop if the traffic light turns to amber. Once your car has reached the last direction arrow, step on the accelerator pedal gradually to pick up speed to continue straight.

Step 34: If there is a bus signaling right to exit the bus lane, you must always give way to buses exiting from the bus lane.

Step 35: Prepare to turn left. Keep to the left to enter the filter lane. Remember to look at the left side mirror and check the blind spot about one car length (distance) before entering the filter lane.

Step 36: Slow down before reaching the zebra crossing, look left and right for any pedestrians. Once you've passed the zebra crossing, look to your right for traffic. You can proceed if there are no cars approaching you. Remember to check the left mirror and blind spot before you turn left into the main road.

Step 37: After the left turn, you will be reaching BBDC on the right about 100 metres in front. Check the rear mirror, signal right, check the right mirror and check the right blind spot before changing to the first lane. Only change lanes after the zig-zag lines on the road.

Step 38: Slow down, signal right while in the right lane. You will be turning right back into the gate of BBDC.

Step 39: Remember to look out for fast moving traffic before making the right turn. Also, look out for any pedestrians walking across the BBDC gate. Before making the right turn, check the right side and check the right blind spot. If a pedestrian suddenly dashes across the BBDC gate after you've made a right turn, you must remember to sound the horn. If you do not sound the horn in such a situation, this may cause you to fail immediately.
