Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in New Addington
On your lessons in the New Addington 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 New Addington
Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping
You will be taken to an area in or around Addington for this exercise. Don’t be worried and enjoy your first time of moving a car. You will be introduced to M.S.M. (Mirrors, Signal, Manoeuvre). You will get a first taste of Clutch control and steering a car too.
Lesson Plan: Trams and Buses
In Addington, you cannot get away from Buses and Trams. So unique to this area you will be shown how to recognise the signs and be able to obey them. Trams are silent and cant turn off their track. The sign posts for Trams are unusual too.
Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering
New Addington, with its never ending roads and junctions is perfect for this subject. Its important to be able to get the correct procedure on approach using MSPSL. M stands for Mirrors, S stands for Signal, P stands for Position, S stands for Speed and L stands for Look. All important for success.
Lesson Plan: Reversing exercises
It will not be difficult to reverse around Addington or nearby Selsdon. Your instructor will even take you to your chosen test centre and allow you to practise on actual test route roads with regard to Reversing exercises.
Lesson Plan: Dual Carriageways and Lane Discipline
Dual- Carriageways of Addington with test you on driving at higher speeds, your land discipline, overtaking skills and use of mirrors.
Lesson Plan: Emergency Stops
The Emergency stop might come up in you test. Its not difficult or scary when taught properly. The procedure is to grip the steering wheel firmly, whilst braking firm and clutch down after the brake. The Instructor will find areas nearby to perform this safely.
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!
