The information provided in this book has been taken from THE OFFICIAL HIGHWAY CODE, KNOW YOUR TRAFFIC SIGNS, THE OFFICIAL DVSA GUIDE TO DRIVING THE ESSENTIAL SKILLS, ROADCRAFT THE POLICE DRIVER’S HANDBOOK, and also from fellow Driving Instructors, Because the information used is from official publications you can rely on this publication for accuracy. The sole reason for me producing this book is because I couldn’t find any training material that stuck to the official publications so I decided to compile my own.
This book takes you through the learning to drive process used by the vast majority of Driving Instructors in the UK. You may notice that all the manoeuvres are near to the end of the book. This is purely to keep them together and separate from the other training material as Driving Instructors choose to cover manoeuvres at varying stages of the learning process. I personally aim to begin covering the manoeuvres very early on, as I find it helps to understand clutch control and boosts confidence in learners making the learning process much easier. But it really is up to each Instructor or Trainer as to when they prefer to cover the manoeuvres.
