What does it mean to ‘’Roll’’ on my Driver’s License test?

Most students that fail their Driver’s License test is because they were marked on a “Roll’’ action. A ‘’Roll’’ means that your vehicle moved in the opposite direction of what the gear was selected.

So this means that if you select the first gear your vehicle needs to move forward and if you select the reverse gear your vehicle needs to move backwards. If your vehicle moves in the opposite direction you will be marked on a ‘’Roll’’ and therefore fail your test immediately. This action can be marked during your drivers license Yard or Road test.

The only way to prevent your vehicle from rolling is to have proper clutch control. Be sure to practice this as much as possible and use a vehicle that you are most comfortable with for your driving lessons and drivers license test. Your driving school should give you one vehicle for doing your driving lessons and the same vehicle for doing your drivers license test. Also note that Testing Stations tracks differ and you might get some that are on a slope making it easier to ‘’Roll’’. Your driving Instructor should be able to prepare you for this and give you advice regarding different Testing Stations.
