    If you have to go out with a trainer, why do you have to road test?

    They want to make sure you can drive a large vehicle in a safe manner. They are expecting a very base level of skill and expect you to miss gears and a need to fine tune all of your skills, including backing. They do expect you to understand how to make proper turns with a trailer and if you miss a gear be able to get back into a proper road gear quickly to prevent an unsafe situation. They are not expecting perfection, but unsafe driving will not be tolerated. They just want a base line they can build on.
    P.S Practice making a nice smooth stop in school, this will impress your evaluator. :)

    Because many trainers have low experience .. in some megas the trainer learns more from the trainee than he taught him

    How do they know you didn't pay off your trainer to say that you can drive?
