in the road (3
test you will be asked to " turn the car round to face
the opposite way using forward and reverse gears - try not to
touch the kerb when turning "
When moving off, set the clutch just below biting point unless
on a steep hill, where the clutch would need to be slightly
higher. (small petrol engine cars will require a steady flow
of acceleration) We used a diesel 2 litre not requiring much
revs for this film.
Take good all round observations at all times - if you are not
sure whether an approaching driver will stop when you are on
the second or third stage, - wait - but be ready to move off
- don't wait until the driver is so close to you where you have
to set the handbrake, gear and clutch at the last minute.
This exercise is based on a road with a steep camber. Certain
roads you may not require the handbrake.
