The Private Driving Practice Handbook (Teach Yourself 2 Drive).
An extract from this excellent handbook.
Setting out plans for the drive.
Before starting your drive it is important that you plan what you intend to cover, together with the route you wish to use. I have set out lesson plans covering the official learning to drive syllabus that you can use as a guide or you can concentrate on any areas a driving instructor has suggested during driving lessons. It is important that you do not ask the learner to run before they can walk. The lesson should therefore either recap on areas already covered or be a natural progression from previous lessons or experience.
The route you take must match the lesson planned. There is no point in taking the time to plan a lesson only to then take a route that does not allow the learner to practice the topic/skill being covered. There also needs to be sufficient time allowed to enable the learner to improve both their skills and their understanding of the topic. The time of day may also have an effect on the lesson. Is it going to take place in rush hour traffic or after school when there may be large numbers of children around? For some exercises a quiet time of day may be preferable others, for instance improving judgement of other traffic may require more traffic to really hone the learner’s skills (remember only when their skill level and understanding allows).
The more time and effort that is put into the planning of the lesson, the more benefit to the learner.
Planning and giving instructions.
When accompanying a learner driver for the first time many people find that the learner takes considerably longer to deal with an instruction or hazard than they had expected or allowed time for. It is therefore essential that you plan a long way ahead. Let’s look at an example. The learner is driving along a straight section of road within a 30mph speed limit with various side roads, pedestrians, other road users etc. Suddenly a car pulls out of one of the side roads about 20 metres ahead and into your vehicles path. The learner driver has a number of questions to consider helping them to decide on the correct course of action.
The distance between the two vehicles?
What are the speeds of both vehicles?
How close are any vehicles behind?
Is the road wet and will this effect the stopping distance?
All these questions can take quite some time for an inexperienced driver to consider and make a decision. Please bear in mind that many learners will simply brake hard in this situation regardless of whether or not it is the best course of action.
