This is just a reminder
I’ve seen many people making this mistake. When a controller says to exit the runway you actually exit it. Do not stop with the back of the tail sticking on the runway!
This afternoon I was controlling on expert and there were quit a few that made the mistake.
Here are some examples of the mistake:

Because if the tail is on the runway no one can use it for obvious safety reasons.

Here are some great tutorials if you still don’t understand:
Remember this is really important!
