I have been teaching people how to drive in Padbury for about 9 years
Normally we begin to learn how to drive on the quieter streets in Padbury , when you are ready we move to a larger “block” say up Gibson Av,
along Giles Av to Grey Rd along to Warburton Avenue and along to Gibson Avenue again.
When you are happy doing that we go to a car park 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 ,
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
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
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
