I'm doing my driving test very soon and due to various reasons I had to finish my lessons and prepare for my test with my dad in my car, which is a semi-automatic. When I was doing lessons with my instructor in an automatic car, he only told me to put the handbrake on. He never told me to put it into neutral or to take my foot off the brake to stop glare, so is it necessary for the test?
Many people online say to put automatic cars into neutral so that if your foot slips off the brake then it won't try to creep forward, but as mine is semi-automatic, it doesn't start moving when you take your foot off the brake like an ordinary automatic, but I don't want to fail my test for something like not putting my car into neutral! If I stop at the lights and wait for the recommended five seconds then put the handbrake on, can I take my foot off the break with the car still in drive until the lights change?
