Hey , So I am going to take my restricted license test soon and I want to know if anyone has done the test at East Coast Road, At the soccer field. If so, What should I expect in my test? All my friends who have done it says its a piece of cake and all they had to do was pull up in a driveway go on the motorway and stop on the side of the road. No parking or parallel parking involved? Well I hope not because my parallel parking needs polishing up ;) . Also my friends have told me to indicate on ALL roundabouts when your going out maybe it was one off? Cheers for all the help

If your skills "need polishing" then maybe you should wait and sit later?

And, yes, you should indicate on all roundabouts (?!).

I did it there.. no parallel parking at all.  If you're in a manual be prepared to do some hill starts.  Also some of the intersections around there are a bit funny.. if you're unsure make sure you follow the road rules and give way to your right.  They often take you through road words there.  Stay to the speed limit (20 or 30, can't even remember now?) even if everyone in front of you is gone and you've got a queue of people behind you.
