    Have my driving test very soon and there's a number of 7ft width restrictions on the possible test routes I might have. I've realised a bit too late that actually I'm rubbish on them, fine when the instructor tells me what to do but when left to my own devices, I mess it up, and messing up a width restriction would be an instant fail. Instructor doesn't have any helpful tips for getting through them only just to 'learn how to'.

    So does anyone have any helpful tips for getting through width restrictions? Any particular reference points that can be used etc? I guess the same would apply for getting through a narrow gate. Problem is I have a complex about them now and am actually getting worse at them instead of better :mad:

    My only advice would be go as slow as you feel comfortable, and get as close as you can on your side. If you can practice driving through them as much as possible, good luck with your test
If you won £30,000, which of these would you spend it on?
