Start your driving tuition Worthing based and you will soon be a good driver!

In order to take the driving exam, the most important part of the driving tuition Worthing based is the practical training. This involves performing driving hours under the supervision of a driving instructor Worthing. During the driving lessons, the student must learn the functions of the car, how to control the car, how to drive safely, how to make turns, how to park the car, etc

Before climbing behind the wheel, the student has to make a quick car control, by checking the visibility of the windscreen and of the windows, the pressure of the tires, the visibility of the registration number, the way the windscreen wipers function, the way the signalling lights function, the oil level, the fuel level, etc.

The next step is to get behind the wheel. After that, the driving instructor Worthing will tell you that you have to adjust the position of the seat, the position of the mirrors and then you will have to fasten the seat belt. The correct position of the seat should allow you to press the clutch pedal without stretching the leg and without moving it from the hip. The correct position of the backrest should allow the driver to reach even the most remote button on board, without detaching the back from the backrest.

After having finished all of these, the next step is to turn the engine on. Usually, the car is parked with the gear lever in stage 1 and the hand brake applied. In order to start the engine you have to insert the key in the ignition; the clutch has to be fully pressed, the gear lever has to be placed in the open position; then you push the gas pedal a little, turn the ignition key to drive the starter up, then you release the key, when the engine starts. After starting the engine, you can release the clutch pedal and let the engine run for a slight warming, accelerating slightly if it tends to stop.

A driver needs to have the ability to be careful at all times at what is happening around the car and to be prepared to act promptly in order to avoid any accident. This characteristic is called vigilance. Vigilance requires all the senses of the driver: eyesight (the driver watches the road, the road signs and the behaviour of other road users); hearing (the driver receives information about the occurrence of a failure or malfunction of the machinery or gearing of the car: beating, knocking, etc.); smell (he/she receives information on different systems or mechanisms); the sense of touch (helps with pressing the pedals, receiving vibrations, receiving vehicle dynamic behaviour). All this information will be processed by the nervous system and converted into a harmonious behaviour management that aims at a correct driving and prevention of traffic accidents.
Vigilance is reduced by talking on the phone, eating while driving, handling the CD player or the radio, turning to the other occupants in the back seat of the car, etc.

These are the basic things you will learn during your first driving tuition Worthing lesson with your driving instructor Worthing.
