Small fault

Minor offenses are those that do not pose an obstacle or a danger to the circulation of other vehicles. These faults are the ones that you can accumulate the most throughout the exam, since they are not serious.

Some minor offenses that are often committed regularly are those related to not correctly checking the general condition of the vehicle or its systems, having an incorrect posture while driving or a poor grip on the steering wheel, not adjusting the rear-view mirrors properly, not wearing the seat belt properly before starting off, not looking at the mirrors correctly while driving, using an inappropriate speed, stopping inappropriately, etc.

As we can see, there are many ways to get a minor fault during the practical driving test, most of these are not very dangerous, so you can continue with the exam, but you have to be careful and not accumulate too many, since you will end up failing if you exceed the fault limit allowed.

Poor fault

Deficient offenses are all those behaviors or breaches of the rules that hinder, notably hinder the movement of other vehicles, or directly prevent it.

Non-compliance with traffic regulatory signals. Provided they do not constitute an eliminatory fault, and behaviors that affect safety distances are also considered deficient faults.

A moment where many faults usually occur is in the incorporation to traffic, since it can hinder the circulation of other vehicles or pedestrians. Special care must be taken with these maneuvers, carry them out with great care and at the appropriate speeds, without taking too long.

Another typical deficient fault is usually when driving, by not taking the lane that corresponds to us and thereby hindering the correct circulation of the rest. Of course, not giving way to pedestrians in authorized crosswalks is another faulty offense that is often given a lot in practical driving license exams.

You have to be careful and pay close attention at all times and not get carried away by nerves, you have to take the exam as if it were just another class and focus on driving.

Qualifying fault

Eliminatory offenses are those that are considered behaviors or breaches of the rules and that pose a danger to the safety of oneself or the rest of the road users. Not complying with the signals considered serious or very serious infraction are also considered eliminatory faults.

You have to take into account that with only one of these faults you will have the exam failed. Again, you have to be careful as soon as you start the exam, when joining traffic, not to make a sudden maneuver or to brake abruptly. You also have to be very careful with pedestrians and not endanger them at any time.

If we exceed the speed of more than 30 kilometers per hour, it will be considered an eliminatory fault. As well as not keeping the safety distances with pedestrians and cyclists on the road. Overtaking, lateral movements, intersections or changes of direction are the moments in which greater care must be taken, since an error in these maneuvers can pose a danger and we will be eliminated immediately.

Vehicles that can be taken with a driving license b

The driving license B is the most requested in all driving schools. With it you have access to cars, so it is the permit that everyone seeks to obtain when they enter a driving school for the first time.

However, this permit gives us the possibility of driving other vehicles, of a different nature. Despite being the driving license that we all usually have at home, many of us do not know which vehicles we can drive with the B driving license.

Today we are going to see with the class B license that other vehicles can be driven in addition to passenger cars and thus know what our possibilities are after passing the B driving license.

If you want to sign up for our driving school to get this or any other permit, go through our website and make your reservation, do not run out of your place.

Automobiles and trailers

With the driving license B you will have the possibility to drive cars whose maximum authorized mass does not exceed 3,500 kg. These vehicles must be designed and built to transport, at most, up to 8 people, in addition to the seat occupied by the driver.

The B permit also allows you to drive with coupled vehicles, always with a towing vehicle. The trailer must have a maximum authorized mass that does not exceed 750 kg in any case, provided that the maximum authorized mass of the set, of both vehicles, does not exceed 4,250 kg. Therefore, with the permit, you can drive a car with a trailer that weighs less than 750 kg of maximum authorized mass (MMA).

The driving license B allows the driving of mopeds and motorcycles with a displacement of up to 125 cc, a maximum output power of 11 kW and their power / mass ratio not exceeding 0.1 kW / kg. This would be the same as what can be obtained with the A1 permit, although obtaining the B permit does not grant you the A1 permit.

We can also drive and circulate with light tricycles and quadricycles, such as quads. In the case of tricycles, as they exceed 15kW of maximum power, it will not be until we are 21 years old that we can drive them, even if we have obtained the B driving license when we are 18 years old.

Special vehicles

A series of special vehicles can also be driven by obtaining a B driving license. To better treat them, we are going to divide them into two large, well-differentiated groups, special agricultural vehicles and special non-agricultural vehicles.

Special non-agricultural vehicles

For non-agricultural special vehicles, the B driving license allows and authorizes the driving of vehicles and vehicle sets that do not exceed the maximum authorized speed of 40 km / h, provided that the maximum authorized mass does not exceed 3500 kg.

Neither of these two limits can be exceeded, neither the maximum speed, nor the maximum mass. In order to drive specialty vehicles or non-agricultural specialty vehicle assemblies that exceed these limitations, a different driving license will be required. As a rule, they will be the C or C1 driving licenses, which will correspond to the highest maximum authorized mass of the vehicles.
