Areas of Importance when taking lessons in Mitcham

On your lessons in the Mitcham 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 Mitcham

Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping

Your Instructor will take you somewhere very quiet and straight for this lesson. This may prove difficult in an area like Mitcham, but don’t worry our local instructors know all the best places near your home. For instants a small area off the Mitcham road is great.

Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering

Approaching  junctions properly is key to be ready for test. MSPSL is a routine that is necessary to be able perform junctions safely. When doing junctions (emerging and entering), the best places for this can be the area around Furzedown ares of Mitcham or off Albert road Mitcham/Morden.

Lesson Plan: Reversing exercises 

Reversing exercises in the Mitcham can prove frustrating when other road users constantly turn up. Your Instructor will be able to seek out places near to Mitcham for any exercise you are to learn that day.

Lesson Plan: Pedestrian Crossings 

Mitcham, with its many Traffic junctions is a good place to learn about Pedestrian crossings. There are two types Uncontrolled (Zebra) and Controlled (Pelican and Puffins)

Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops

Obviously to perform this exercise for the first time you need to go somewhere in Mitcham without there being other road users. Your instructor will take you somewhere like Phipps Bridge area. This exercise needs to have quick reactions, but still maintain control of your vehicle.

Lesson Plan: Clutch Control 

Its importance is second to none. Good Clutch control means more control of your vehicles speed at very slow speeds. Stalling is a result of bad Clutch control. Hills are an important subject to grasp. To do this Your instructor will take you to places that will help you understand Clutch control under different scenarios.
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!
