Here at Apex Driving School we have a number of driving instructors in the Coulsdon area allowing us to offer driving lessons by local instructors that know the Coulsdon area and the test routes an examiner will use when on your practical driving test.
Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Coulsdon
On your lessons in the Coulsdon 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 Coulsdon
Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping
After you have been told what all the controls do. Your Instructor is now ready to get you driving. Moving off is combining hand and feet control to move off safely, drive in a normal driving position from the kerb and be able to park again. Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic Hard to grasp, Meeting traffic is when cars or obstruction narrow the road. In fact many pupils have failed the test on this, so you should be able to understand this to be success and a safe driver. You will be taken to many areas known to your instructor that have the perfect conditions. You will need lots and lots of parked cars. The best area for meeting traffic would be the Clock house area.
Lesson Plan: Clutch Control
Cant stress how important C/C is. You will be taken to hilly areas such as Clock house or Rickman hill. To master clutch control you will have to combine your clutch pedal and gas pedal. The Biting point is a phrase you will hear a lot.
Lesson Plan: Roundabouts
The procedure to enter a roundabout can be confusing. Not to mention whilst on and exiting one. Mini roundabouts can be the same whilst being quiet different. Signal badly on a roundabout can cause confusion. But don’t worry our instructors will make sense of it all for you.
Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering
To be able to approach junctions safely and correctly you will need to perform something called – Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed and Look. You will be asked to perform junctions numerous times on all your lessons. Approach may well be hampered by parked cars, pedestrians or road signs.Coulsdon has many challenging junctions.
Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings
The Brighton road, South and North of Coulsdon has many different types of crossings from Pelicans with flashing amber lights to staggered crossing. Pedestrian safely is paramount. They can do silly things but you will be taught the clues on anticipating their actions at crossings
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!
Mr O’shea from Coulsdon
My daughter passed with apex. I would have to say that when I sat in the back of one of her lessons I could see why she passed. The instructor was first class. Money well spent.
