Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Waddon

On your lessons in the Waddon 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 Waddon

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.

Lesson Plan: Crossroads

Crossroads in the Waddon area based around the Purley way area. M.S.P.S.L is the procedure that your instructor will teach here. You will need to look at parts of the junction that don’t have priority on  you. What if ? is the phrase here. Anticipation skills will be developed upon too.

Lesson Plan: Meeting traffic 

Meeting vehicles coming towards you on different types of roads can be difficult to master. A road in Waddon will have a different layout of parked cars one day to the next. Even so there are procedures to follow, one being defensive driving. Knowing M.S.P.S.L will help you master this subject.

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian crossings

Pedestrian crossings are limited in Waddon to a few zebra’s and light controlled crossings. You need to alert yourself to a crossing ahead, check mirrors, reduce speed, scan the crossing area, understand the zig-zag lines, stop in the safest way and move off safely.

Lesson Plan: Anticipation and Awareness

Anticipation is so important to safety on the roads. In towns you won’t be able to drive more than 20 meters without the possibility of a “what if” coming up. What if that parked car moves off or opens it’s door. What if that pedestrian runs out. In Waddon being a residential area it’s important to master anticipation.

Lesson Plan: Reversing exercises 

On your test and in future driving you will have to carry out either a turn in the road, reverse around a corner or reverse park. Waddon has a few areas to practise and your instructor will know where they are.
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

I thought my female instructor from a different school was not patient. I decided to ask Apex to let me try a male instructor. The tutor given to me was polite, unfussy and so helpful. I mastered my fear of main roads within two hours. I enjoyed my lesson with Apex very much. Thank you.

Mia from Waddon

My instructor from Apex was a pleasure to drive with. He was happy to pick me up from where ever I could get babysitters from. He always knew where to take me around the Croydon test roads. I even did Fairfield roundabout on my second lesson without crashing. Thanks to Apex I passed quickly.

Uma from Waddon
I took three weeks off my University to get my test done. Apex helped me book it and taught me from scratch within two and a half weeks. I had passed by the time I got back to university. My pass plus is arranged for the summer, then a car and then my freedom.
