Parallel Park AKA Reverse Park!
Struggling to figure out the Parallel Park? You’re not alone!! In this video we use client-centred learning (CCL) to help our lovely pupil, Rhea, park properly. Watch it now! This manoeuvre may be chosen by your examiner on the day of your driving test. It is regarded as one of the hardest to perform; let Rio show you how to do it easy! This is a remedial lesson. Instructor Paul helps learner Rhea perform this manoeuvre properly after she had attempted to learn it from her father. Driving Instructor Training: this is a useful demonstration of how client-centred learning (CCL) is delivered.

Driving Tutorial | Anticipation and Planning Driving
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. #Anticipation #Planning #Awareness #DrivingTutorial #DrivingLesson #Rio
