What’s covered in a typical driving lesson?

 

Each driving lesson is structured differently depending on the needs of the learner. Our instructors follow strict lessons influenced by the RTA on the following areas to ensure learners receive appropriate guidance in the following areas:

 

Speed management:

 

   The driver demonstrates their ability to manage speed and maintain a crash avoidance space. 

Maintains space to the front:

With a gap of at least 3 seconds when following another vehicle an d increases the gap in poor conditions

When stationary behind another vehicle

Reduces speed: 

When vision is limited (e.g. blind crests and curves)

When space to the side is limited

Maintains traffic flow:

When traffic, weather and road conditions allow

 

Road positioning:

 

The driver demonstrates their ability to position the vehicle by selecting a safe and legal path of travel 

Buffering by: 

Maintaining space from parked and oncoming vehicles

Avoiding driving in the blind spots of other vehicles

Inspections:

Manoeuvres:

Maintains sufficient distance (between one and two metres) from other vehicles

 

Decision making:

 

   The driver demonstrates the ability to select a safe and legal gap 

When joining the traffic flow, lane changing, merging, diverging and manoeuvring: 

Chooses a safe and legal gap at intersections, leaving the kerb, changing lanes and merging

When crossing the traffic flow: 

Clears the intersection 3 seconds before another vehicle arrives.

The driver performs the necessary observation checks. 

When joining the traffic flow, lane changing, merging, diverging, manoeuvring and proceeding through traffic lights.

 

 

Responding to hazards:

 

   The driver demonstrates their ability to protect their crash avoidance space by responding to hazards with one, or a combination of, the following actions. 

Responds by managing speed, ‘sets up’ or ‘covers’ brakes, slowing down

Responds by managing position, buffers away from hazard

 

Vehicle control:

 

The driver demonstrates the ability to maintain smooth control of the vehicle by correct seat adjustment, use of the accelerator, brakes, clutch, gears, steering, auxiliary controls and signals.
