Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Tooting

On your Driving lessons in the Tooting 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 it’s 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 Tooting.

Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping

Bring your License on your first moving off lesson so your instructor can view it. You will be driven somewhere quiet. Don’t worry before driving the car you will have a full understanding of the controls and procedures to be successful. An appropriate area for this lesson is not far from Tooting. Lesson Plan: Roundabouts

There are many types of roundabouts, some are mini and some are very big. Some have two exits and some have up to six sometimes. So Signal procedure change constantly. Lane discipline can be confusing and non-uniform. Some are open and some are closed (can’t see).

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings

Driving Lessons in Tooting has plenty of pedestrian crossing to practises on. You will be taught to check your mirrors, control your speed on approach, observe the crossing, know the law on the different types of crossings, understand the sequence of lights and be able to move off safely after.

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. Tooting is busy so you will need to be aware

Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic

Tooting is full of obstructions narrowing the road up. 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.

Lesson Plan: Clutch Control

Clutch control is too important to put into words. You will be taken to areas near Tooting with different gradients of hills. To master clutch control you will have to combine your clutch pedal and gas pedal (Biting point!!). 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!

Customer Testimonials

Apex is a safe school. I would recommend them. Great price, highly professional. Quick and helpful. Thanks for my freedom. My sister learnt with them 5 years ago with the same instructor. So will my brother.

Bobby from Tooting

I passed my test 20 years ago and never drive since. I was nervous to drive in my area. I contacted Apex. It only took 10 lessons to regain my confidence again. Thank you Apex. I drive everywhere now.

Mrs Patel from Tooting

My husband was from Iran, he spoke very little English. Somehow the instructor from Apex managed to teach him to pass the theory and practical tests first time. It’s a miracle. Thanks so much.
