You will improve information gathering by learning the benefits of scanning the road ahead to allow you more time to formulate your driving plan. This will give you more time to decide when and where to indicate your intentions to change direction or speed.

By learning the System of Car Control your ability to position earlier and to see further ahead will give opportunities to make more progress under all circumstances.

By using acceleration sense to adjust speed saves fuel and there is less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission system. Early braking on hazard approach gives more time to anticipate and react to the ever-changing road picture ahead.

Gears should be selected according to your speed and may be obtained using a loop or block change method in a manual car or by shifting to the appropriate gear in an automatic. You will be taught how to use the gears for different circumstances for optimum flexibility and control.

By accurate use of the accelerator you will drive safely and smoothly through the hazard, according to the traffic flow, road surface conditions and grip factor. This permits the application of the safety principle of being able to stop on your own side of the road, within the distance you can see to be clear.
