Driving Tips

Steering

On the above graphic click the left or right buttons to see how to turn that direction using the Push-Pull method of steering.

To steer accurately you should look well ahead at where you are going. You must be able to operate the main controls without looking at them. Looking down will result in your car wandering from side to side.
Try to keep both hands on the wheel when braking or cornering.

Although you should keep both hands on the wheel as much as possible, there are times when you need to change gears or operate the lights, wipers and other controls.

When approaching right bends, move your right hand to the top of the wheel ready to pull it down to steer round the curve in the road. In the diagram your right hand coloured in red should always stay in the red coloured part of the steering wheel.
When approaching left hand bends, move your left hand to the top of the wheel to pull it down to steer round the curve in the road. The left hand should stay in the blue part of the steering wheel.
When turning, try not to cross your hands over one another, or in other words, using the diagram above, try and keep your right hand in the red part of the steering wheel and your left hand in the blue.
