Behind-the-Wheel Lesson #1 starts from the first approach of the vehicle. New drivers will learn to look for potential hazards in the immediate area as well as how to do a quick visual inspection of the vehicle itself. Students will not only learn the controls of the vehicle, but also, when and how to properly use them. This lesson takes place on local, lower traffic volume roadways allowing students to learn how to handle the vehicle, navigate curves, and turns, in addition, to smooth stopping, starting, accelerating, decelerating, proper spacing, consistent speed, lane positioning, eye positioning/tracking, parallel parking and more. This lesson introduces new drivers to defense driving skills which will provide them with the knowledge and confidence they need to reduce the risk of accidents.
Behind-the-Wheel Lesson #2 takes place on city roadways. In addition to the skills the driver learned in the previous lesson students will learn how to drive in increased traffic volumes with city and highway traffic while learning how to drive at higher rates of speed, safely change lanes and merge, identify blind spots and pedestrian activity. In addition to handling complex intersections and sharing the roadway with large commercial vehicles.
Behind-the-Wheel Lesson #3 takes place on roadways similar to the testing location roadways and in a parking lot where the parallel parking maneuver can be practiced. In addition to the skills the driver learned in the previous lessons students will learn how to parallel park, reverse the car, pull in and out of parking spots, U-turns, and a basic review of everything that the student will be tested on during their Driving Skills Test.
We understand that every new driver begins driver training at varying abilities and some will progress less quickly than others and vice versa, therefore; the content of each lesson will vary according to the new driver’s abilities.
