Re: Hands on the wheel

If you watch 'Road Wars' 'Traffic Cops' and 'Interceptors', you'll notice that Hendon no longer exerts the influence it once did ;) Well, you live and learn. And there was me thinking that the driving was so bad on these shows that they were all just jobbing actors; and that Road Wars and Intercept...

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

Of course I always ask reason for doing it. This lady mentioned among other things her six point speeding penalty.

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

"which may be why many AD drives observe the speed limits in 30s but are less concerned by well sighted NSL" ...... Unfortunately speed limits are a very blunt instrument and there are very many roads with 30 limits on which a higher speed would be safe and not anti-social. The different a...

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

I particularly like "stick to beat them with ... Not in the IAM Observers manual! :)"! Standard issue at old-fashioned Police driving schools according to legend. If you get one of these you can even get it personalised, so if you use it hard enough you can leave your signature on them! h...

That would be me. Not you? Is that a problem?

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

Speedo is clearly marked. Has started commentary - next time will ask her to tell me limit and her speed very frequently. Don't consider using an unnaturally low gear to be good practice. She really does want to keep to posted limits. In other respects her driving is about advanced standard.

Re: Graduated licencing again

I learnt in my parents cars. I taught all three of my children in our cars. There were no dual controls involved, no damage was done, and nothing dangerous happened. On the other hand there was some swapping between seats for demonstration purposes. And there was less time pressure than with a paid ...

Re: Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

Thanks for all the ideas. Some will help. This is a good way to use the forum. I particularly like "stick to beat them with ... Not in the IAM Observers manual! :)"! "More seriously, why is the associate with you?" Perhaps not surprising that she had been done for speeding - way ...

Associate cannot keep to the speed limit

I have often found that one of the things Associates preparing for an Advanced Driving test find hardest is keeping to the speed limit. Typically, the problem arises in 30 limits where it is safe to drive at significantly more than 30. For the Advanced Driving test, most examiners would allow only a...
