On a road test you must come to a complete stop at a STOP signed intersection at the correct stopping position. If there is a STOP line, you must completely stop the vehicle before the STOP line before proceeding.

Introduction

The stop sign for the purposes of a road test you need to stop at the correct position at a stop signed intersection. There are three positions & will let you know what those are in a minute. Hi there, welcome back, Rick talking today about the three stopping positions at stop signs that you need to know for the purposes of a road test.

1) The first stopping position is just before the stop line. The front tires must stop just before the stop line.

2) The second position is before the crosswalk. If there's no crosswalk painted on the roadway, than before the sidewalk.

3) And the third stopping position is where the two roads meet. The vehicle must come to a complete stop.

On a road test, at a STOP signed intersection without a STOP line, you must bring the vehicle to a complete stop before the crosswalk line. If there isn't a crosswalk line, you must stop before the sidewalk (foot path). After stopping treat the intersections as a YIELD.Complete Stop

Unlike the fact that most people at STOP signed intersections do not come to a complete stop; for the purposes of a road test, you must come to a complete stop. The way that you can tell the vehicle is at a complete stop is that the body will settle back over the chassis of the vehicle when you come to a complete stop. you'll feel it sort of set back because the vehicle is 2 pieces and as you brake the body moves forward of the chassis. When you come to a complete stop it'll settle back over the chassis. That's how you know you come to a complete stop.

Complete Stop - Treat it as a Yield

If you stop at the correct position at the STOP signed intersection and you can't see oncoming traffic, stop in the correct position than treat it as a YIELD. Move forward it to you can see and when the way is clear you can proceed.

On a road test you must come to a complete stop at a STOP signed intersection at the correct stopping position. If there isn't a STOP line or a crosswalk line, or sidewalk, you must completely stop the vehicle before the point where the two roads meet before proceeding.Conclusion

So the three stopping positions at a STOP signed intersection:

1) before the stop line just the front tires just before the stop line;

2) before the crosswalk lines if there's no crosswalk lines, before the sidewalk;

3) and finally before where the two roads meet.

If you can't see when you stop at the correct stopping position at the STOP signed intersection come to a complete stop at the correct stopping position and than treat it as YIELD Move forward into you until you can see and than proceed with the way is clear.
