When learning to drive, there are so many skills that you learn. As a new driver and without your instructor beside you, it’s easy to forget to do these little things but keeping up with them every time you’re in the car should build up your confidence, especially when it becomes second nature. Some of the basics that you may forget are:
- Cockpit drill
- MSM routine (Mirror, Signal, Manoeuvre)
- Clutch control
They’re all small and relatively simple things but are essential when driving, and let’s face it – you know how to do them because you’ve passed your test! Making sure you’re getting the basics right will boost your confidence in the car. If you feel like you’ve completely forgotten the basics, get in touch with your driving instructor and ask for a refresher lesson!
