The typical blind spot for a driver is behind the left shoulder. If you are parked on the left hand side of the road and pulling back into the right hand lane then your blind spot will be over your right shoulder.

A driver's permit, learner's permit or learner's license, is a restricted license that is given to a person who is learning to drive, but has not yet satisfied the requirements to obtain a driver's license. Having a driver's permit for a certain length of time is usually one of the requirements (along with driver's education and a road test) for applying for a full driver's license. To get a learner's permit, one must typically pass a written test about rules of the road, although the process varies between jurisdictions.
Provisional waiting period is usually associated with a conviction for moving violations. It can result with the need to restart the waiting period, and completion of remedial driver education classes. It can also result with suspension or revocation of your license.

Minimum age for applicants is 15 years and 9 months. If the student is under 18 years, his or her parent must co-sign the learner's permit application. Applicant must then pass all required tests.
