Revision from our last meeting
This is our first meeting so we will just instead cover what you have done in any previous lessons you may have had or indeed any driving practice you have completed to date.
Performance Objective – To practice the handling of a manual gear shift and to learn how to control the vehicle with very little power as we navigate smaller, quiet streets
Standard – In a motor vehicle ( LandRover) with a higher seating position
Conditions – In daylight, with little traffic.

Fault Symptom Fix
Fantastic to meet you. I was really impressed with your first lesson with me. You managed to navigate the first car park very well showing controls as you steered around as well as showing good foot control on the pedals to master clutch and accelerator in a much bigger car.
Some points for further consideration as you develop up your driving is to consider jumping out of the car to take a look behind you if reversing. There is no shame is taking a look outside of your vehicle to enable a better judgment. Start thinking about the over-shoulder checks and how you can do them that allows you to take in what may be in your blind spot. At the same time, practice keeping your steering steady whilst you take that split second to absorb over your shoulder so you can ask your hands to carry out any avoidance issues if you see something such as a hidden cyclist.
Remember to consider your gear change before you require all your energy to maneuver such as a roundabout, hill, change of lane to allow you to have dealt with the engine before you need to move the wheel, indicate and all the other little tasks you need to carry out.
I would imagine it would be good to consider a lesson in your own car at our next meeting so I can avoid having you get too used to one vehicle. I would imagine on the next lesson we can now commence the teachings required for the restricted test and therefore we can start lesson plans whilst at the same time allowing for plenty of manual practice. At some stage in the future I also think we should carry out a lesson in one of our automatic vehicles so you can also feel the difference whilst applying the same road and riving technique.
I hope you get some practice in. Maybe consider trying the same route we carried out and I look forward to meeting you again soon.
