The Driving Instructor’s Handbook
Finding sensible places to carry out the teaching of different subjects can be hard. You will have found during the course of your part 2 training that finding a good place to practice the Turn in the Road, or reverse park for example can be hard.
Finding nursery routes
Understanding how routes fit in with what is already known
Avoiding problems outside the lesson plan
Safe Convenient and Legal Places – to perform manoeuvres
Seeing things from the novice’s perspective
Using the area where you intend to work as an instructor, find areas and routes where you could implement the following as first lessons on the subject:
Moving off and stopping for the first time (bearing in mind that you may well be able to progress to turning left and right).
The Parallel Park
With your trainer you will drive these routes and risk assess them.
