    Can you fail your driving test for going too slow? I had a mock test recently and I was in a 30 zone but I thought it was a 20 and so I was driving at around 18mph. He pointed it out but didn't tell me if I had gotten a serious or a minor because I know that I failed on observations so I failed anyway.

    Plez halp. Thanks.

    If you're driving slow, for no reason, then it may be counted as a serious/minor.

    This thread should be in the Learning to drive forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there

    Driving unnecessarily slow is typically a minor fault if the road's clear, but if you're holding up traffic behind you it becomes a major fault.

    If there is an enforced 20 limit you'll generally see it painted on the road and on signs at regular intervals.

    That said, driving at 20 in a 30 isn't necessarily a bad thing if you're on tight residential roads, generally if I see speed bumps or traffic calmers I'll go down to 20 anyway. Doing 20 on a 30mph arterial road on the other hand will almost certainly be marked down by your examiner.

    i usually go about 20 on residential roads anyway where there's lots of parked cars and my vision is kinda restricted. i think you'd maybe get a major though if you were on a main road that was 30 with traffic behind you
