Learning to drive with a quality Kenmore Driving School will give a Learner Driver the best opportunity to learn safe driving skills . It is ideal to learn the best skills early so you can take those skills with you all the way to a Driving Test and beyond.
Many Learners and Supervisors don’t realise that to be smooth with the brake and accelerator you may need to deliberately practice smooth braking and smooth acceleration technique. Good steering can be developed quickly with some deliberate steering drills. The task of moving and stopping near the kerb can be made simple, but many learners can get to 100 logbook hours and still not be very good with these basic skills. The real purpose of the 100 learner hours is to develop good skills and develop safe techniques. A quality Kenmore Instructor can accelerate this learning process and get you started on your journey and then the Supervisor can travel that journey with you. Foundation skills are so important for a Kenmore Learner.
Everything you do as a “good and safe driver” is the result of well formed habits. We use drills to form these good habits. When we repeat the drills the task gets into our subconscious as the way we do a particular task and then it becomes our habit. There are so many tasks to cover in learning to be this “good and safe driver”.
As an example, one of the early tasks you should learn is how to move parallel and near to the kerb. A half decent driving instructor can give you some tips or an approach to do this well along with all the other habits you should learn. However we find many learners that have completed their logbook hours , cannot do this basic task well (perhaps like the picture). If they didn’t learn this basic skill, then are other important skills missing? You may start to wonder if life saving skills are missing. Activities like smooth braking , good steering control , road position, observation and scanning need to be practised as drills and each need time as focus activities. Some 30 logbook hours of developing good safe skills may go into focus activities to develop the right habits. Simply driving to school 5 days a week is not a recipe for “good safe driving” habits.
If you do a Google search on “ centenary motorway accident ” you will soon discover like most places there are frequent motorway accidents. As a Learner Driver you need NOT participate in these accidents. If you learn best practice motorway skills then you should be able to avoid getting involved in dangerous situations created by a few other drivers sharing your road. A quality Driving School will teach you how to merge safely onto the Centenary Motorway from Westlake and exit the motorway to your destination. While on the motorway you will need to deal with other traffic on the motorway and those entering the motorway. You will need to be aware and on the lookout for unexpected hazards that can occur. A quality Driving School Instructor can show you a number of techniques to use as a proactive driver to keep you safe as you drive to Jindalee or other places beyond 4074.
