At GPS, we are a leading driving school in Sherwood, and provide a challenging and supportive learning environment to help you advance your driving skills. The main aim, especially in the lead up to your practical driving test, is to improve your abilities to judge, decide and respond to challenging traffic situations. For example, multi-lane roundabouts and high speed freeway merging located on the Western freeway at Jindalee and the Oxley roundabout on the Ipswich motorway.
If you reside in Indooroopilly, Graceville, Sherwood, Mt Ommaney or Jindalee and wish to take your driving test at the Sherwood Test Centre, you will need to be very good at high speed merging onto the freeway at Oxley.
It is important you follow some key preparatory steps to ensure the safest merge possible. These steps include:
1. Setting your right indicator early after entering the merge ramp.
2. Building speed quickly, up to or near the freeway speed while accounting for vehicles in front of you.
3. Look as early as possible into your right side mirror to gauge traffic flow and safe entry. Be sure to give way where necessary and shoulder check before entering.
If you are taking your test at Sherwood or any other test centre around Brisbane, it is important you know how to merge strongly onto a freeway.
Getting it wrong by misjudging the situation or not preparing early enough can have critical consequences. Your Indooroopilly driving school instructor will assist you in these areas if you are taking your test at Sherwood or Rosalie and emphasise the importance of knowing how to merge strongly onto a freeway. We will give you ample opportunities to practise on a variety of freeways, Motorways and speed zones until you are feeling confident and competent.
If you reside in Indooroopilly, Graceville, Sherwood, Mt. Ommaney, Jindalee and surrounding suburbs, you may wish to take your driving test at the Sherwood Test Centre. For this test area, you will need to be very good at recognising all relevant road signs. For example, Form 1 lane and Left lane ends–merge right signs and be able to apply the specific give way rules to these.
You must be able to demonstrate:
- Early recognition of lane line and sign changes ahead.
- Early mirror checks, signalling if required and a shoulder check into the blind spot of the lane beside you.
- Apply the correct give way rule, and importantly look to manage the fail to give way by other drivers.
These driving habits will ensure you are ready to take evasive action, especially if a vehicle fails to give way or is obstructive. These types of merges are numerous along Oxley Road and the Ipswich Motorway and will form part of your Sherwood Test route.
Being guided by your signs, lines and road markings is critical to a safe journey on the road. It also forms a large part of your assessment in your practical driving test. That’s why developing your ability to look and plan ahead and drive defensively, is a major focus of your driving school Indooroopilly lessons with GPS.
