All in-car lesson are private, no more than one student in the car!!!!!

This is where the fun begins!

The Driving Instructor has a huge role to play in this. If a new driver is taught the life skill of driving by a good Driving Instructor who can motivate and inspire them, then they get off to the best possible start. Not only that, a good instructor can also influence how their students  drive for the rest of their life by developing a safe and responsible attitude towards driving. That is where PRO DRIVING SCHOOL can help. We focus on road safety and teaching it from the grass roots; it will be logical and comprehensive to ensure success.

Circle check, 5 F's control gauge assesment

Before entering the vehicle , walk around it in a circle and check for the 5 F'S:

  • Flats (air pressure, cuts, Tread wear)
  • Fluids (any leaks)
  • Fractures (windshield, vehicle body, glass, bulbs)
  • Filth (dirt, snow, mud)
  • Freedom (space behind or in front of the car, to be able to move off safely)

Proper engine start

Place the car key into the ignition, keep foot firmly on brake pedal, turn ignition switch to "ON " position, turn ignition switch to "START" position, releasing immediately when engine starts. Start position should not be held for more than 3 seconds.

Hand-over-hand steering control

For a sharp turn, turn the steering wheel with one hand and cross the other hand over it. Grip the wheel on the other side and continue turning. This is called "hand over hand steering."

Steering turn recovery

When you have completed the turn, relax your grip on the steering wheel and let it slip or gently feed it through your hands to return to the straight-ahead position.

Lane changes MSB

Never change lanes without giving the proper signal and looking to make sure the move can be made safely.
Here are the steps for making a lane change:

  1. Check your mirrors for a space in traffic where you can enter safely.
  2. Check your blind spot by looking over your shoulder in the direction of the lane change. Signal that you want to move left or right.
  3. Check again to make sure the way is clear and that no one is coming too fast from behind or from two lanes over on a multi-lane road.
  4. Steer gradually into the new lane. Do not slow down - maintain the same speed or gently increase it.
