Use of Signals

Why do we use signals?

Q Why do we signal?
ATo let others know what we are about to do.

Q – Why do we check our mirrors before we signal?
A – To check it’s safe before we declare our intention to change direction.

Indicators

Q – What’s the problem with indicating too early on approach to a junction?
A – If there is a road to the left or right before the junction. It might confuse.

Q – What’s the problem with indicating too late (especially on roundabout?)
A –  Other road users don’t know where we are going!

Q – Are there any times you can think of where it may be unnecessary to signal?
A – When we are moving off – if there is nothing around at all.

Q- Why do we always mirror and signal when approaching a junction or pulling up on the left?
A – The car is moving so things can change quite quickly. Its a good habit to practice!

Therefore, signals should be timed, necessary and correct.

4 Main Signals

  1. Indicators (for an intended change of position).
  2. Brake lights (intending to slow down).
  3. Road position
  4. Speed

Q – When do we use road position as a signal?
A –  When turning left or right at a junction or any other circumstance where we want to signal a change of road position. Often used in conjunction with the indicators.

Q – Why are the brake lights an important signal?
A –  If we don’t use them (say just use engine braking), then other road users behind us won’t know we’re slowing down!

Q – How do I use speed as a signal?
A –  Speed as a signal can be used in quite subtle ways. For example: edging forward at a junction. However, this one has to be used with care. For example: pedestrians waiting to cross and I slow down; they ‘may’ get the signal to cross.

Little Confidence in Myself

Little confidence

“After learning else where I had little confidence in myself and was about ready to give up but I’m so glad that I found Paul who was very patient and encouraging, I felt completely at ease and surprised myself by passing first time, would definitely recommend.”
Josie.

Josie first time pass

Josie passed FIRST time with 4 minors 14/02/17

Confidence

I believe that confidence comes from two things: knowledge and experience. If you don’t feel confident learning with your present instructor, ask yourself the question: is he/she giving me the knowledge I need? Then, ask: is he/she building confidence into me by taking me on different routes so that I can experience different challenges?

Of course, when we begin to learn to drive we won’t feel confident. No one should; only the over confident – and they are dangerous! Learning to drive is a ‘journey’ in self discovery as we learn, with the help of our instructor or coach, to overcome the mental and physical challenges of learning to drive.

For Example: most pupils dread ‘stalling the car’ but I will teach you the knowledge or theory of stalling ( why does a car stall?) and then, get you to practice or experience hill starts in an environment where the pressure and risks are reduced – so you can experiment.

Learning to drive therefore, is about learning from your mistakes. It can’t be learnt solely in a classroom or with a book!

Paul is a well seasoned driving instructor

A well seasoned driving instructor

Paul Noble is a well seasoned driving instructor who brought the best out of me during our lessons. I have continued to use his driving technique as a now licensed driver and feel very confident and safe on the road.

Elkanah passed with 2 minors

Tailored routes

He planned each session according to the skill level that I had reached at the time and tailored the routes we drove with an aim to improve my driving efficiently and safely; gradually building me up to more challenging roads to test the quality of my driving, until he became confident that I was both a competent and safe driver.

Vast amount of information

He covered a vast amount of information regarding the rules of the road, technique, the mechanics of the car and best practice in a very simple and easy to understand manner, using both a visual example with a verbal description which helped me to learn basic driving skills within the first few lessons and develop an advanced skill-set as we progressed.

Showed me where I could improve

When I inevitably made mistakes he never once criticised me negatively or made me feel as if I was unable to achieve my best; he showed me where I could improve and how to do it positively and constructively.

I was very happy with the service that Paul provided me with and looked forward to my weekly lesson with him. I would recommend Paul’s driving tuition to anybody looking for their first lesson or twentieth alike, he clearly wanted me to succeed and gave me every opportunity to do so.

Passed Advanced Driving Test

Diamond Advanced DrivingI am really happy to announce that I passed my DIAmond Advanced Elite Driving Test! I passed with only 1 minor driver fault! Now I understand the pressure that my learners feel when on the standard driving test!

What is the Advanced DIAmond Elite Driving Test?

The “DIAmond Special Test” is the UK’s toughest driving qualification, outside of the emergency services. The national pass rate is just 2%!

advanced drivingThe test lasts for 90 minutes and covers a variety of roads and where possible motorways, rural areas and an emergency stop exercise.

During the test, you are expected to complete: 2 manoeuvres involving reversing, demonstrate eco-safe driving and also perform a commentary drive for approximately 15-20 minutes.

A pass is awarded if you achieve no serious or dangerous faults and less than 2 driver faults in the same category.

https://www.advancedmotoring.co.uk/

Who is it for?

The test for anyone who wishes to take their driving to the next level or has a keen interest in driving. Maybe you are a member of a car club or drive extensively for work? Whatever your reason however, this test will make you a safer and more knowledgeable driver.

What are the benefits?

The main benefit of passing the test though, is being able to demonstrate the ability to drive to a very high and safe standard.

DIAmond training focuses on defensive and eco driving techniques. Therefore, a DIAmond trained driver is less likely to be involved in an accident with the less likely-hood of the expensive loss of no claims benefits etc. Having a Diamond Elite test certificate may give you substantial discounts on your insurance.

What about you?

So what about you? Could your driving benefit from taking Advanced Driving Lessons? Maybe you think you have what it takes to pass the Special Test Yourself?  For Advanced Driver lessons, give me a call on 0778 055 3078 or use the contact page.

I changed instructor!

Lessons elsewhere – changed instructor

I came to Paul at the end of October after having lessons elsewhere and I am so pleased I changed instructor. Paul is friendly and I immediately felt relaxed from the first lesson. He is patient, understanding and provides simple methods to follow, something I found invaluable.

instructor

Don’t feel rushed

The 2 hour driving lessons mean that you don’t feel rushed and can get experience with driving further afield. As a mother to a toddler with another on the way I wanted to get my license quickly but also feel confident driving my children around and Paul’s methodical approach prepared me in the best possible way in just 12 hours of lessons with Paul, I felt very confident in time for my test and passed first time with just 2 minors!
