Driving lessons Nottingham, Moving off (POM)

26 Nov
This is an easy to follow, step by step method to move off safely.
P – Prepare. First of all get the vehicle ready to move; clutch down and select the appropriate gear, set the gas (one to one and half revs), then slowly bring the clutch up so that you feel the bite point.
O – Observe. Check it is safe; if moving away from the left hand curb, look in your interior (centre) mirror to see what is behind you. look in your offside (right) mirror to see what is coming from the right, finally look over your right shoulder (blind spot), the area that the two mirrors cannot see. Before moving off look ahead.
M – Move. Signal away from the curb, release the handbrake and keep your feet still.
When you move off safely you will have to judge that you will not slow down or make another road user change direction. (Just like when you cross the road safely) Therefore do not give a signal until you are about to move, otherwise it could be misleading. (‘Are you signalling to go? or to let people know that you want to go?)

Driving lessons Nottingham, using the MSPSL routine, to approach a junction.

14 Nov
Using the MSPSL routine, to approach a junction
Firstly identify the junction and assess the type of junction that it is:
• Open/closed.
• Emerge/Turn.
• Controlled/Uncontrolled
Check for road signs and road markings and use the MSPSL routine .
M – Mirrors. Look in the appropriate mirrors to assess what is behind and to the left/right.
S – Signal. Signal left or right, as apprpriate, in good time.
P – Position. When turning left, assume the normal driving position (either in the middle of your lane or 1 metre from the curb, depending on rd size). When turning right, position yourself as soon as it is safe to do so, to the right of your lane (just to the left of the centre line). In a one-way street move to the right-hand side of the road.
S – Speed. Reduce your speed, if necessary and select the appropriate gear. Be prepared to stop: you must give way to traffic on a major road.
L – Look. Look in all directions, at the earliest point it is clear to see (ensure that your position and speed remains correct for the type of junction and direction you intend to take).
