Driving Test

Considerations to take Into Account When Coming To A Stop While Driving

While pressing on the accelerator increases the speed of your car, pressing on the brakes will decrease it. There’s nothing much to reed in it. Wrong!! Indeed, there’s a lot to read in between these lines, as both accelerating and stopping ask for specific rules and techniques to follow.

That is the reason, every reputed driving school in Strathfield would come up with detailed training about accelerating as well as stopping in their curriculum, and that is quite obvious as these two are the two most important aspects of driving, on which a lot depends. We at LicencePlus Driving School are no exception. We provide a detailed list of dos and don’ts to our trainees regarding bringing the car to a stop when it comes to imparting training.

Here on this page, we enlist some of the dos and don’ts that one needs to follow when it comes to stopping the car.

It is essential to bring the vehicle to a complete halt at every junction. The rolling stop is a strict NO-NO, as it is firstly extremely unsafe and secondly, and more importantly, completely illegal.

Our instructors in our driving school in Epping would suggest that while stopping at any junction, it has to be seen that the car does not come to a halt too far back. Rather, it is better to stop at the point, where the stop line cannot be from the driver’s seat. Stopping too far before this line or beyond it is a traffic offence.
When the vehicle comes to a complete stop, the driver is ideally supposed to wait for at least 3 to 4 seconds before starting the vehicle and moving again. The vehicle must be slowed at a yield sign, and the driver must look around cautiously before continuing with the journey.

Before exiting a driveway and getting on to a driveway, it is compulsory to stop the vehicle.

When it comes to stopping at the stoppage line, the front bumper must be behind the stoppage line as it will not obstruct the other vehicles.

Then again, as it can at times be pretty difficult to ascertain exactly when and where to halt, the instructors of any driving school in Granville would tell you to start the process of stopping well before reaching the very edge of the white stoppage line. It is much better to gradually reduce the speed much in advance and then inch forward and then stop, rather than stopping abruptly at the last moment and then pulling back the car on the reverse, just because the line has been overshot. When it comes to cracking the test, it results in automatic failure.

We also hire cars for the driving test. That is why our instructors also provide last minutes tips for those appearing for the test. Regarding the stoppage technique, they always recommend not to stop until it is required to.

As far as the emergency brakes are concerned, the trainees might not be asked to use an emergency brake at the time of the test, but our instructors would train how to use them. However, that is a different chapter.

So you see, when you enroll in a reputed driving school in Granville, you will be trained in details about the techniques of stopping the car. For further details, call us at 61 1300 002 626 or 61 456 443 567 during the service hours.
