Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in New Addington

On your lessons in the New Addington 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 New Addington

Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping

You will be taken to an area in or around Addington for this exercise. Don’t be worried and enjoy your first time of moving a car. You will be introduced to M.S.M. (Mirrors, Signal, Manoeuvre). You will get a first taste of Clutch control and steering a car too.

Lesson Plan: Trams and Buses

In Addington, you cannot get away from Buses and Trams. We will teach you how to recognize the signs and obey them, which is so unique to this area. Trams are silent and cant turn off their track. The sign posts for Trams are unusual too.

M stands for Mirrors, S stands for Signal, P stands for Position, S stands for Speed and L stands for Look. All important for success.

Lesson Plan: Reversing exercises 

It will not be difficult to reverse around Addington or nearby Selsdon. Your instructor will even take you to your chosen test centre and allow you to practise on actual test route roads with regard to Reversing exercises.

Lesson Plan: Dual Carriageways and Lane Discipline

Dual- Carriageways of Addington with test you on driving at higher speeds, your land discipline, overtaking skills and use of mirrors.

Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops
