If you are interested in driving lessons Kenmore, or to familiarise yourself with challenging roads and intersections you may encounter in your driving test at Sherwood we can help.
To effectively prepare to pass first time, you will need to demonstrate competence in three main areas of your drive. These include:
Drive within the road rules and drive independently, being guided by your signs, lines and road markings. Know when to give way – hit nothing and do not let anyone hit you!
Drive in a smooth, safe, relaxed manner and apply the System Of vehicle Control when you approach and enter every intersection, turn or merge.
Drive to the conditions, stay up with the flow of traffic, control your speed and be ready to respond to other road users.
There are multiple traffic signs that you must recognise in suburbs like Chapel Hill, Kenmore, Brookfield, St Lucia, Taringa and Fig Tree Pocket.
Being guided by your signs, lines and road markings is critical to a safe journey on the road. It forms a large part of your assessment in your practical driving test. This is why developing your skills to actively scan and plan ahead is a major focus in your driving school Kenmore lessons with GPS Driving School.
If you take your driving test in Sherwood, our Kenmore driving school instructor will point out unusual signs and intersections you may come across, for example, a right turn from a slip lane, pictured below. Many learners in lessons simply do not recognise the need to give way to the left, potentially causing a serious accident.
There are multiple traffic signs that you must recognise in suburbs like Chapel Hill, Kenmore, Brookfield, St Lucia, Taringa and Fig Tree Pocket. These include school zones, work zones and varying speed signs. Also, single and double solid white lines, stop signs, railway crossings, keep left signs and so on. Your St.Lucia driving school instructor will teach you to observe and respond to these when driving and the consequences of missing these in your driving test.
At GPS we will help you develop the core skills of defensive driving. These lessons are designed specifically to strengthen your observation and awareness of the common fail to give ways and other hazards. These lessons are based on reinforcing active scanning of the three common accident zones as well as learning to apply the System Of vehicle Control in all lessons.
Many people report when they have an accident, “it happened so quickly, they did not see it coming”. In most cases, it is because they were simply not actively scanning to anticipate the potential ‘fail to give way’ by other drivers. This can include the taxi driver pictured. The driver was failing to give way. Fortunately we were scanning our green traffic light on approach, witnessed the taxi entering from our left and braked!
At GPS, we promote a proactive approach to considering the three key accident zones and thus increasing your chances of preventing collisions occurring in the first place. This comes free, as part of your overall driving lessons in Chapel Hill, Kenmore, Brookfield, St Lucia, Taringa and surrounding suburbs.
