  • Is this a transcript of an actual conversation? In real life people sometimes 'change course' in the middle of a sentence. The examiner may have started to say "I only want you to follow the road" and ended the sentence as though they had said "All I want you to do is to follow the road". Jan 18, 2021 at 12:31

You could either say:

If I do not say anything, then I only want you to follow the road.

or

If I do not say anything, then the only thing I want you to do is to follow the road.

In less words:

If I do not say anything, then just/simply follow the road.
