What’s Included In Your Short / Refresher Course
A typical course will begin with you re-gaining an understanding of the controls and instruments of the vehicle, including basic movements such as how to drive away from a parked position in safety; the use of mirrors; how to use the gears, clutch, and brakes; and get you to a point where you are reasonably confident driving on a quiet back road.
Once you have got a grasp of the basic controls and movements the instructor will progress on to teaching you a hill start, what to do at crossroads and roundabouts, (including correct signalling on a roundabout dependent on which exit you are going to use), T-junctions, and difficult turns.
Next you will begin to focus on the manoeuvres that feature prominently in the driving test such as reversing around a corner, reverse parking, parking in a bay, handling pedestrian crossings, and a three point turn in the road.
After this you will be taught how to drive on dual carriageways, how to overtake, how to brake in an emergency, and you will be required to drive independently without instructions from the instructor. You will spend several hours working on enhancing your skills, and going over any points on which the instructor may consider that need improving.
The last hour of your course will be reserved for your test (where required). If you have any questions about our refresher / short driving courses please contact our team on 01262 650 181.
