- Theory Test Top Tips (Part 1)
This video covers the most confusing road traffic signs and gives you ways to help you remember them properly.
- Anticipation and Planning
This driving lesson tutorial focuses on three key driving skills: 1. Anticipation 2. Planning 3. Awareness. Identifying potential driving hazards early (anticipation) is crucial to staying safe on the road. The “what if” question should be in your mind all the time. This in-turn will help you plan what to do next on your journey and help you to avoid serious driving problems. With practice, your awareness of potential problems will improve, allowing you to drive with more thought. Defensive driving is a skill we continually improve, day after day, long after you’ve passed your driving test! Remember: a hazard is any potential reason for you to need to change your speed, course or direction. This video is also useful resource for anyone trying to understand the Hazard Perception part of the DVLA Theory Test.
- Mock Test (Volume 1) at Featherstone
How good would your driving be after a 4 month break…? This mock driving test / assessment was conducted with Emily, who had not driven at all since Covid-19 lockdown had begun, some 4 months ago. This video highlights how your driving can deteriorate after taking a break.
- Mock Test (Volume 2) at Featherstone
This mock driving test / assessment was conducted with Emily. It was her second attempt at a mock test. She has just 2 weeks to prepare for her ‘real’ driving test in Featherstone, Wolverhampton.
- Driving Test Review
If you have been following Emily’s progress with Rio Driving School then here’s the video you have been waiting for. Here, we review the subtle detail that was incorrect and led to Emily not being successful on her first driving test attempt. We also re-trace her steps so you can see for yourself what not to do on your own driving test! During our discussion it was also noted that Emily was not keen on performing a few of the manoeuvres, so today we reinforced them. Therefore, this video also covers Parallel Park and Bay Park (reversing in).
