Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Sanderstead

On your lessons in the Sanderstead 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 Sanderstead

Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping

Up Sanderstead Hill there is many straight roads and hills to make moving off and stopping easier to learn and master. Our methods start you with a solid base to kick on with your lessons. You will be introduced to Prepare, Observe and Move (P.O.M).

Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering

Major to minor junctions & minor to major too. To be able to approach junctions safely and correctly you will need to perform something called – Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed and Look. Done in the correct order you should be able to perform junctions safely and correctly.

Lesson Plan: Reversing exercises 

Reversing  exercises in the Sanderstead area can prove frustrating when other road
users constantly turn up. Our instructors will know of enough places to perform all the reversing exercises safely for beginners.

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings 

Sanderstead does not have a major shopping area for pedestrians. So you instructor will have knowledge of any areas nearby to carry out this exercise. M.S.M. is very important here. Pedestrians are vulnerable road users that need more of your attention. They sometimes misuse crossings so you have to be aware and anticipate them.

Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops

You firstly need to learn how to prevent an emergency stop happening. Defensive driving is the key. Good anticipation skills are the making of a safe driver. But we still need to teach you how to do an emergency stop safely and under control. Also skidding will be explained to you in full.

Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic

There is a saying – the driver who drives defensibly and gives way first is the driver that controls the situation. So often you see arguments on the road when drivers are aggressive. Mirrors, assess, pull in or hold back and then mirrors to move off again. Our instructors will be able to talk you through many varied meeting situations.
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 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!
