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 Mitcham.

Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings

Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops

Obviously to perform this exercise for the first time you need to go somewhere in Mitcham without there being other road users. Your instructor will take you somewhere like Phipps Bridge area. This exercise needs to have quick reactions, but still maintain control of your vehicle.
