Lesson Plan

To achieve competency in driving one will have to frequently practise and improve the basic driving skills.

Mirrors Signal Manoeuvre (MSM) is the foundation of driving safely and responsibly. To be able to respond safely and sensibly to hazards ahead, drivers need to know what traffic is doing behind and to the sides of the car.

Moving the car off for the very first time has to be one of the most exciting and memorable moments for a new learner.

With good anticipation there should seldom be a need for any driver to have to perform an emergency stop as opposed to a normal stop.

Signals are the most obvious means of communication between drivers and all other road users. They are usually given by direction indicator but can also be given by arm.

Most traffic collisions happen at road junctions. This is because they are the most common place where motor vehicles and other road users come into close proximity with each other.

Most traffic collisions happen at road junctions. This is because they are the most common place where

Roundabouts are common type of road junction and are in effect one-way systems that allow motorists to move more freely with the flow of traffic. This tends to prevent large backlogs of traffic building up, as traffic lights can do.

Crossroads are a type of road junction. Many roundabouts are converted crossroads, designed specifically to help keep traffic moving.

Road safety is very much the responsibility of drivers. Stressing the role of planning ahead while driving and reducing speed to match the risks is part of our everyday tasks.

The key to achieving a collision free driving requires a combination of positive attitude towards driving and the ability to show awareness and anticipation of all road and traffic situations.

With the increase in number of parked cars on residential roads, meeting approaching traffic is an important practical skill.

Reversing is an essential skill for general driving, whether for changing our travel direction, parking in a car park or at the roadside or perhaps a turn in the road.

This lesson emphasizes on Reverse parking/parallel parking and parking in the bay, where you park between two other cars. Reverse or parallel parking makes use of the vehicle’s manoeuvrability in reverse gear.

Independent driving was introduced into the practical driving test with the objective of bridging the gap between learning to drive and driving in the real world in particular to create more competent and safe novice drivers.

The skills to be taught and developed as a learner driver are that they need to be driving at the right speed and be in the correct position for prevailing road and traffic conditions.

The objective of this lesson is to turn the car around to face the opposite direction using forward and reverse gears, without letting the tyres touch either the kerb or entering a driveway.

The objective of this lesson is to accelerate the acquisition of driving experience and thus improve the safety of new drivers.

Some of the factors that need to be prioritised are:

1. Familiarity with vehicle controls
