Exclusive Tips from Danny Reid, Dublin Driving Instructor with Leinster School of Motoring.ie

Top Tips from Danny, our Dublin Driving Instructor

(1)   Use your G,O,S,H. routine when moving off from a parked position and  glance over your shoulder just before moving off.

(2)   Maintain your T.O.T.s when queuing in traffic and check both door mirrors before moving up in the queue.

(3)    After performing your M,S,m,M. and just before turning at junctions,                                  Look Once, Think Bike, Look Twice.

Common Questions from our Learner Drivers

Q1 At cruising speeds what are the combinations of brake and gears to achieve Progressive Braking in the long, medium and short notice times?

A1.  LONG  NOTICE=First commence deceleration, then select Gear 3 to influence the rate of deceleration, apply brakes to control the rate of speed on approach, followed by clutch before stall, continue braking to stop point.

MEDIUM  NOTICE= Apply brakes first, then select Gear 3 but continue  brake application to control the rate of speed on approach followed by clutch before stall continue braking to stop point.

SHORT NOTICE= Apply brakes, continue braking without gear selection apply clutch before stall continue braking to stop point, stop in the cruising gear.

Q2  How to bring the car to a stop without jerking the passenger forward.

A2   By using the brakes to bring the car to a stop the forward momentum pushes the vehicle and occupants forward beyond the point of the stop. As the pressure on the brake pedal is applied and increased to the stopping point the momentum builds up but can be gently lost  by softly releasing the pressure on the pedal just before the car stops.


Q3 Once clutch control has been practiced and achieved why then is stalling at traffic lights occurring.

A3  The early stages of clutch control still requires the thinking process, this sub-skill  has not yet transferred over to muscle memory, until this happens the thinking process is not completely free to deal with other tasks. Learner drivers finding themselves at busy junctions become apprehensive about delaying other drivers, and having to think through all the tasks at hand are prone to input overload. In these situations the thinking process becomes unable to perform all the tasks required, it becomes distracted from the mechanical aspect of moving off and coupled with the urge to go without delay can overlook the combination of gas/clutch application resulting in a stall. Recovery from the stall is achieved because the brain focuses on that particular problem.
