Specifically, I want to know if this phrase is correct, it's a piece of advice to pass the driver license test: "From my point of view, you should go more slower than faster, so, you have time to steer under the examiner's instructions".

Thank you very much in advance.

  • Steer seems fine. Also "turn" should work. You might consider saying "so you have time to steer when the examiner says so". – Em. Jun 7 '16 at 21:59
  • more slow = slower ---- more slower is not correct. – tom Jun 7 '16 at 22:58

    Steer means move the steering wheel to the left or right, so I'm not sure how the title of your question relates to the body. – Alan Carmack Jun 7 '16 at 23:47
  • Regarding "move the wheel”, I would use "turn the wheel". – user3169 Jun 8 '16 at 0:29
  • Note that (unless you take both hands off the wheel) you are steering the entire time that the car is moving, including when driving along a straight road without turning the wheel. – nnnnnn Jun 8 '16 at 0:48

Breaking apart your sentence

From my point of view

is fine

you should go more slower than faster

is incorrect, as natives we are taught not to use "more" with "-er", more correct might be

you should drive slower rather than faster
you should drive more slowly than fast
you should drive more slowly

"drive" might be a better choice than the informal "go"

so, you will have time to steer the car

as pointed out, "steering" is to move the car to the left, right or straight ahead

under the examiner's instructions.
under the examiner's directions.

is fine.

Regarding your one word for "moving the wheel left or right", one

turns the (steering) wheel

in order to steer the car left or right.

    Good answer. An extra note for the OP: "From my point of view" is a common expression, but when giving advice I prefer "In my opinion". Or perhaps "I suggest that you drive slower..." – nnnnnn Jun 8 '16 at 0:55
