Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
The airplane struck a taxiway location sign during landing rollout. On the student's fourth and final solo practice landing, the airplane touched down on runway 24L. The pilot maneuvered the airplane off the runway centerline and prepared to exit the runway at taxiway B2. Approaching the taxiway, the pilot applied strong brake pressure, attempting to dissipate forward speed, and began a turn onto the taxiway. The turn shifted the airplane's weight distribution, and the pilot, worried that the airplane would tip over, compensated by stopping the turn. The airplane overran the taxiway and struck the taxiway location sign.

Probable Cause: the pilot's failure to maintain directional control during landing rollout.
