That is why I failed on my first try. I didn't remember, or was never taught, that a stop must be made with your bumper even with the stop sign. I was taking the test on a 5-spd, so I'd stop further into the intersection so I wouldn't have to creep forward later. When I got back to the depot, the examiner told me I failed six times. He never said a word during the test.Chipsahui2 said:hmm....easy, follow the laws. i must stress this though, when stopping at the stop sign or traffic light, do not stop on the line, do not stop beyond, but stop before! i had several friends that failed because of such a stupid reason. and relax, even though i had a cop that seemed like he hated my guts, he still gave me the pass even though i didnt back up in a straight line perfectly.
