Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Coulsdon

On your Driving lessons in the Coulsdon 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 its 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 lesson plans and areas suitable in Coulsdon.

Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping

After you have been told what all the controls do. Your Driving Instructor in Coulsdon is now ready to get you driving. Moving off is combining hand and feet control to move off safely, drive in a normal driving position from the kerb and be able to park again. Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic Hard to grasp, Meeting traffic is when cars or obstruction narrow the road. In fact many pupils have failed the test on this, so you should be able to understand this to be success and a safe driver. You will be taken to many areas known to your instructor that have the perfect conditions. You will need lots and lots of parked cars. The best area for meeting traffic would be the Clock house area.

Lesson Plan: Clutch Control

Cant stress how important C/C is. You will be taken to hilly areas such as Clock house or Rickman hill. To master clutch control you will have to combine your clutch pedal and gas pedal. The Biting point is a phrase you will hear a lot.

Lesson Plan: Roundabouts 

The procedure to enter a roundabout can be confusing. Not to mention whilst on and exiting one. Mini roundabouts can be the same whilst being quiet different. Signal badly on a roundabout can cause confusion. But don’t worry our instructors will make sense of it all for you.

Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering

To be able to approach junctions safely and correctly you will need to perform something called – Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed and Look. You will be asked to perform junctions numerous times During your Driving lessons in Coulsdon. Approach may well be hampered by parked cars, pedestrians or road signs. Coulsdon has many challenging junctions.

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings 

The Brighton road, South and North of Coulsdon has many different types of crossings from Pelicans with flashing amber lights to staggered crossings. Pedestrian safety is paramount. They can do silly things but you will be taught the clues on anticipating their actions at crossings.

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 Sutton. All our Driving Instructors in Coulsdon are just as familiar in any area to give you the best places to go to improve your chances of a first time pass!
