Areas of Importance when taking driving lessons in Selsdon
On your lessons in the Selsdon 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 Selsdon
Lesson Plan: Moving away and stopping
In Selsdon there is no shortage of quiet roads to perform this exercise. Its important to understand the Prepare, Observe, Move (P.O.M). On your test you will be asked to park and move off at least seven times. Your instructor will teach this exercise in a clear and concise way so you won’t go wrong.
Lesson Plan: Meeting Traffic
In Selsdon Hill area there is many areas where there are parked cars narrowing the road, these areas are perfect for meeting traffic practice. This subject is one of the most difficult to grasp. Which mirrors to check when giving way and moving off again. Deciding if to give way or not. Deciding where to give way.
Lesson Plan: Clutch Control
Clutch control is too important to put into words. You will be taken to areas with different gradients of hills such as Sanderstead hill or Gravel hill. To master clutch control you will have to combine your clutch pedal and gas pedal (Biting point!!)
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). Our instructors will know the procedure to any roundabout you will ever come across.
Lesson Plan: Junctions – Emerging and Entering
Major roads and minor roads merge to make junctions. Crossroads, these need particular care as road users can come from any direction. To be able to approach junctions safely and correctly you will need to perform something called – Mirror, Signal, Position, Speed and Look.
Lesson Plan: Reversing exercises
Reversing exercises needed the following skills that you would have enquired to be successful. Clutch control, observational skills, steering accuracy and brake control. Selsdon in general is fine for these exercises.
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 Morden. 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!
