I don't shuffle the wheel anymore, so if I were to take my driving test again that would certainly be something I'd need to learn not to do.
Actually no – the days of feeding the wheel through your hands have gone, what test examiners look for is that you have at least one hand on the steering wheel at all times, use both hands whilst cornering and without crossing over your arms (which means you may need to shuffle whilst turning).

Driving with one hand, particularly on corners turn with the palm of my hand, used to work in a warehouse and through driving a forklift ive picked up alot of bad habits
notice alot of other drivers don’t always indicate off roundabouts, annoys me
and ive occasionally overtaken on the inside
Bad boy! Forklift steering is a real no-no and is one really bad habit that would fail you – stop it now before you reverse into something or someone!
As for round-a-bouts - failure to indicate is one of my annoyances, traffic would run a lot smoother if ALL drivers used their indicators.
Incidentally I passed my driving test again after driving for 25+ years first time and it was a more intense test you have to pass to become an Adi.
