Complements of Canadian_gixxer

here's my(canadian_gixxer) quick and dirty guide of pointers:

Shoulder Checking:
(1). Do a shoulder check in both directions everytime you come to a complete stop (ie: stoplight, stop sign, etc, anytime you stop completely)
(2). Do a shoulder check when changing lane positions in your lane (signal or hand signal is not required)
(3). Shoulder check when changing into another lane.

Changing Lanes:
(1). Shoulder check, signal, shoulder check, change lanes, turn signal off.
(2). Same goes with merging onto highways or yield signs and stuff.

Turning:
(1). Left lane position when turning left, and Right lane position when turning right.
(2). Try not to drift wide in your turns.

Speed:
(1). Do the speed limt, regardless of traffic around you. dont go too slow, but dont go any faster than 5km/h over the posted limit.
(2). Watch out for school zones, playgrounds, construction zones, etc, do proper speed in those areas.

Turn Signals:
(1). REMEMBER TO TURN THEM OFF EVERYTIME YOU USE THEM!

Scanning:
(1). Always over exagerate your head scanning. (so they can see that you are actually scanning around).
(2). Try to do your over exagerated head scanning quite a bit. not all the time, but quite a bit.
(3). Scan the mirrors often too, exagerate this by doing the chicken dance (bending arms in and turning head to see into mirror)

after that, thats about all you need to know, just use proper lane position while you see fit, and watch your speed. They dont make you do figure 8s, but they should make you do 1 U-turn (shoulder and signal when doing this), and stop you and ask you to identify road hazards.

Good luck.
