2.1.2.1. Uphill area (slope not being less than 16 %).
2.1.2.2. Limited width area of the movement part for returning back;
2.1.2.3. Box for the parking of the automobile at the back.
The dimensions of autodrome and closed platform and structures of elements are defined depending on the size of automobiles intended for the acceptance of the examinations.
2.1.3. Other areas may also be used, if there is no any permanent autodrome or closed platform. In this case, their element structure should be compiled with the help of portable devices.
2.1.3.1. “For returning back limited width of the movement parts” of cars and the elements of  “box for the maneuvering back parking space” are equipped with hung flags in the above and black - white color supports having sustainable foundation  from 1.2 m height. Such elements for freight cars are equipped with tight ropes and colored flags attached to the props.
 The height of the tight ropes should correspond to the height of the vehicle load platform.

2.1.3.2. “Ascented field” element designed for all types of vehicles can be made as an overpass that has sufficient stability and ensuring the safety of the movement when passing over it.  
2.1.4. In order to avoid the loss of time the placement of elements in platforms will be expedient if acceptance of examinations is available in two or more automobiles at the same time. Movement is organized with the help of the road signs and sign lines.
In order to accommodate the candidate of driving in advance, table of the movement scheme of the closed platform should be hanged in the well visible place of educational institutions showing the elements of experiment.  
2.2 On the condition of heavy traffic in testing routes;
2.2.1. Examination of the knowledge and ability of the driving candidate must be carried out accordingly in the testing route on the conditions stated below:  
2.2.1.1. Pass from the road junction in the zones of influence  in accordance with the Annex 4 of the Law “on road traffic” 2.4. “Give way” or  2.5. “it is forbidden to pass without stopping”.
2.2.1.2. Pass from the road area having other road signs warning, guiding and giving information to the driver.
2.2.1.3. Pass from the road junction regulated or unregulated with traffic lights.
2.2.1.4. Implementation of the turning to the left twice  or turning back once.
2.2.1.5. Implementation of the turning to the right twice.
2.2.1.6. Movement along the road that have two or more strips for the movement in one direction.

2.2.2. Testing routes for RED are defined depending on the number of the people being served, the situation of street road network and on the length.  
The number of routes:
Should be from 5 to 10 in the cities that have 500 000 people and more, and from 3 to 5 in other settlements.
Note: The area should be equipped with the relevant complex elements depending on the size for the adoption of practical examination in the first stage on the driving of the transportation means with the “E” category.  
2.2.3 The length of the route is recommended to be from 1.5. km to 4 km for each examiners, including the elements defined in the clauses of 2.2.1.1 – 2.2.1.6.  
2.2.4. Testing route, route line (route scheme) is compiled in 200x300 mm format. Number is issued to each route.
To start examination in one place and to finish it at the same place is considered expedient in order to save time and replace the examinees in timely (for example, examination department).
If the routes have been selected one after another, in this case the beginning of the first one and the end of the last one should be the same place.
It is considered expedient that testing routes have resource variants for the timely replacement.
Examiners familiarize the examinee with one of the route cards for the movement from the testing route by the random selection method before the beginning of the second stage of the examination.
2.3. The duration of the examination should be sufficient for the determination of the knowledge of the driving candidate on the driving the transportation means that he wants.  
2.4. Examinee implements the control of the fulfillment of the element in the first stage by the help of the visual or technical means. In this case he can use control technical means in examination automobiles or outside from them.
3. Content of the examination
The implementation of the following elements is considered in order to define the preparation of the driving candidate:
3.1. Autodrome:
3.1.1. Movement from its place in ascent: - must set aside the car in ascent, and then continue the movement. / in this case the automobile should move from its place fluently, the engine should not be stalled and automobile should not go back more than 20 cm./
 3.1.2. Turning back in the limited place of the width of the movement part / turning back from the first time in the road area with limited dimensions by making to work the back treadmill of the speed box/.
The car should be stopped in a way that its external contour is in the inside of the signed box (a sample of the closed platform and movement scheme should be relevant to the Annex 1 of this Methodology).
While implementing this element minimum side distance from the box should not be less than 1.5 times from the external template of the turning radius of the automobile from which examination is accepted.
