Driving Test Preparation
This is about expectation and response for Driving Test Preparation i.e. the prior you see something the sooner you respond to it. Ensure you look well in front of you.
A danger is anything that may roll out you improvement your speed or your course. There are moving perils and static risks e.g. people on foot, cyclists, hindrances, potholes and so on
Get however much driving knowledge as could be expected in all street, activity and climate conditions.
Some examples of good anticipation:
- Never take the actions of another road user for granted. Be prepared to stop even if you have right of way!
- Always look several cars ahead of you rather than at the car that’s directly in front. If you see brakes light ease of the gas while having a quick glance in your middle mirror and then apply the brakes if necessary.
- When driving in traffic be wary of the vehicle in front is they are driving unusually slow, they may be looking for somewhere to pull in and park. Leave them plenty of room to man-oeuvre. Often they may drive passed a parking spot, stop and reverse into the spot to park. Remember reverse lights are white so be ready to react if you see reverse lights coming on. You don’t want to stop to close and have to reverse yourself.
- Watch out for your vulnerable road users i.e. pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. Pedestrians often walk in between vehicles (if raining they may be running) cyclists may swerve to avoid potholes / puddles.
- Always leave enough room between you and the vehicle in front, make sure you have enough time to stop within the distance ahead of you that is clear.
