I have been teaching people to drive in the Clarkson area for about 9 years

Normally if you live in the Clarkson area and You are a complete beginner we choose the quieter streets to start on ,
until You can move off without stalling, park the car at the side of the road,and then move off.

When You are ready we form a fairly large block say, Along celebration Bvd/ Hannaford Ave around Walyunga Bvd to Liberty Dr and back onto Hannaford Avenue

When You are happy doing that we often go into an empty car park and Start “parking”
and learning our other exercise which we need to be able to do for our assessment
called “left Something behind” .

When You are ready we move onto driving in Your assessment area – Joondalup ,

Over the course of several lessons we will learn who gives way to whom and You will learn when you can and cannot go.
We need to be able to deal with,

1.Turning right at traffic lights with no arrow

2.Double laned Roundabouts

3.Stop lines

4.Sometimes a lot of traffic

To Maximise your chances of passing first time, You need to be able to demonstrate ,
1. Good Vehicle management Skills
a) Mirrors
b) Signalling
c) Road position before turning left or right (path)
d) Choosing the correct gear for the manoeuvre
e) Rechecking the mirrors
2. A good understanding of the road rules

There is NO test route as such , Assessors are able to take you anywhere they feel like, there is nothing that will definitely not come up
on Your test , You could go on the freeway, or end up doing a reverse parallel park up a hill , you need to be able to do everything,

HOWEVER usually its straight forward , some things we know will definitely happen
1) you will have to reverse your car into a bay
2) You will more than likely do the exercise “left Something Behind ”
3) An Assessor will check that you stop at stop lines
