Areas of importance when taking driving lessons in Sutton

We have in place a lesson plan that make learning in Sutton so much easier. You’ll learn every aspect of driving in the right order and at a pace that suits you. Our driving instructors will know which areas to take you depending on your ability and driving lesson plan for that day. A suitable area is required for each driving lesson plan to go smoothly when driving in Sutton. Furthermore we have ALL the test routes mapped out in all test centres locally. Below are a small example of plans and areas suitable when you’re doing your driving lessons in Sutton.

Lesson Plan: Moving off and Stopping

Your first or second driving lessons seem scary, but here at Apex you need not worry. Our driving instructors will plan the lesson by taking you to a suitable place to carry out these exercises. One of the most popular areas to move off on a straight road is Cornwall Road.

Lesson Plan: Reversing Exercises

Reversing exercises such as Turn in the Road or Reverse Parking can prove difficult when carrying them out for the first time, so ideal areas for these are Sandy Lane area or Worcester Road. These areas will test you when doing the exercises on various widths and gradients of road.

Lesson Plan: Dual Carriageway & Lane Discipline 

The Dual carriageway by-pass is ideal for making sure you stick to the appropriate lane for your destination. Plus with the speed limit varying from 30mph to 60mph, you will be able to master the car at speed. Lane discipline is a common major fault on tests.

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings

No doubt you are aware that pedestrian crossings are found on main roads? The main types are Zebra, Pelican and Puffins. You will learn how to recognise them and approach them safely, and deal with pedestrians in a proper fashion too.

Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering

To be able to approach junctions safely and correctly you will need to perform something called MSPSL: Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed and Look. You will need to do these over and over again. So it’s no point driving for miles in a straight line waiting to turn. Therefore the grid of roads off Grange road and Mulgrave road can’t be beaten for these exercises.

Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops

Performing an Emergency Stop sounds scary and difficult. It does not need to be. Taught properly it’s easy. It has to be under control rather than just slamming on the brakes. The hardest part is remembering the procedure to secure the car and move off again. This enables this exercise go to plan. Quick reactions are key, and so is full control of pedals and steering.

At Apex Driving School in Sutton there are lots of test routes and we know them ALL. We’ve studied all of them and taken our pupils on them many times leading up to their test. It’s essential you learn to drive properly, of course, but it’s also important to know the area of your driving test. To improve your chances of a first time pass don’t just ask us, but read a handful of our pupils’ comments:

“I was learning to drive with another driving school, when a friend told me about how much cheaper his lessons were compared with mine. I am very glad that i changed to apex driving school, my driving instructor was so calm and relaxed, it made me feel at ease. I passed my test within 5 weeks of changing. I also completed my pass plus, which saved me just under 500 pounds on my car insurance. Thank you”
