Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Cheam

On your Driving lessons in Cheam area, your instructor will know which areas to take you depending on your ability and lesson plan for that day. A Suitable area is required for each lesson plan to go to plan. For instants it’s no good doing your reversing lessons on a busy road, thus be unable to perform the exercise enough times to master it independently. Below are a small example of Driving lesson plans and areas suitable in Cheam.

Lesson Plan: Moving Off and Stopping

Get the first Driving lesson right will make you feel on top of the world Your instructor will drive you to a quite area. On the drive, he will explain some controls he is using. A briefing on any new subject is as important as doing it. M.S.M. (Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre) and P.O.M. (Prepare, Observe & Move) are need for success. Your Driving School in Cheam knows many places to get this done. Perfect site would be Sandy Lane.

Lesson Plan: Clutch Control

Clutch Control is ultra important to pass a test. You will be taken to hills such as at Sandy Lane or Frederick Road areas of Cheam. For Clutch control you will have to combine your foot controls. Biting point is the buzz word for this lesson plan.

Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering

Major roads to Minor roads using the MSPSL routines are essential to success. You will be taken to an area full of junctions. Areas such as York road and Sandy Lane have the perfect roads to practise turns.

Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic

Meeting is a difficult skill and takes many attempts. You need narrow roads to do this. You will be taken where there are lots and lots of parked cars. The best area for meeting traffic is on the Cheam Park Farm Estate.

Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops

You will drive to a quiet area, where you will be briefed how to perform this exercise. I am sure your instructor will take you somewhere like the Sandy Lane area or Cornwall road. Skills required are quick reactions whilst maintaining control of your vehicle.

Lesson Plan: Progress / Hesitation and Driving Position

Progress can mean either driving too fast for the road conditions ahead or driving too slow. Hesitation is when you arrive at junctions not prepared to go or wait too long at the junctions. Slow sounds safe but can be dangerous too. Driving Position on the road is ultra important as bad position misleads other road users. Everywhere in Cheam is fine for these exercises.

There are many more places known to us for various exercises. There may well be occasions you need to be taken to another area for your test, for example Croydon. All our Instructors are just as familiar in any areas to give you the best places to go to
improve your chances of a first time pass!

Customer Testimonials

I lived in India for 20 years. When I came back the roads looked scary so even though I had passed my test many years ago I decided to take refresher lessons. Apex was great. I am confident in Towns and Motorways now. Thank you. I will recommend Apex to anyone.

Maddy from Cheam

Apex was the cheapest and the best I could of hoped for. I passed with ease and confidence. I have had my licence for 6 months now and not had any scary moments yet !!! Thanks and hello to Glen (my instructor).

Rachel from Cheam

I am a nurse and my shift work meant I could only do lessons at odd times. Apex was very flexible and prompt. I passed after 3 months. Its opened many work opportunities for work for me now. Apex rules!!
