One extreme to the other!

I've been learning since December last year and used to start breaking way too early for junctions and traffic lights etc! Now I'm not slowing down soon enough!! But then I also get criticized for going into first gear when I could stay in second for turning off main roads. When will this balance out!?? Is it just PRACTICE ! neutral

Re: One extreme to the other!

This is not unusual, Shazzer so don't fret over it.

I've found that many students tend to overdo something when they've picked up on something and benefited from it - going from overbraking to underbraking (and vice versa) often happens. Look at it in a positive light!

Yes PRACTICE is the key.

Enjoy your driving lessons!

Re: One extreme to the other!

its a natural progression shazzer - first too slow - then too quick - then hopefully the right result.  the first is underconfidence  and lack of knowledge - the second overconfidence and not sure how to use that knowledge - the last ability and confidence, which is what you need to carry into your test  big_smile

Re: One extreme to the other!

I did terribly on my emergency stop, every time I tried it. First time I braked way too hard. Every other time I didn't brake hard enough. Got a driver fault on the actual test for not braking hard enough.

I didn't realise you could brake "too hard". I know the car is ABS equipped and I roughly know its limits.

The same applies with my car - I know its limits. I've had to stop it once in a hurry and did that just by pressing the brake pedal as hard as I could. It worked.

Re: One extreme to the other!

How can you brake too hard if you retain control of the car?

Re: One extreme to the other!

I don't know. I suppose you have to factor in that not everyone is going to pass their test and jump into a car which has all the same modern day technologies that their driving instructors car has.

Luckily I did, to an extent.

Re: One extreme to the other!

I know that some pupils ( I'm not saying you did, Dog) make a bit of a show of the braking, lifting the leg up high and slamming onto the brake, maybe that is what they mean??
