I have been teaching people to drive in Kingsley for approximately 9 years

Normally we begin to learn how to drive on the quieter streets in Kingsley , when you are ready we move
to a larger “block” say down Kingsley Drive along Hepburn Avenue ,up Barridale drive
to Whitfords Avenue and down Kingsley drive again.
When you are happy doing that we often go into the Kingsway Sporting Complex and Start “parking” and our
other exercise which we need to be able to do called “left Something behind” .

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

Over the course of several lessons we will learn who gives way to whom and You will learn when you can and cannot go.

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
