Turn in the road today for Grace. Secret is, fast hands - slow car and don't forget the 1/4 turn of the wheel at the end of each phase!

Despite the nerves Ben passed. Corner reverse to the left, keep observing as you move.

Lucky (nickname) progressing nicely, now confident around Newton Abott

Had a great lesson on Controlled stop with Jess. Remember when you have successfully stopped the vehicle and secured it (handbrake, neutral), do a full 360 degree look before moving off.

New pupils with previous Mom/Dad training are fast learners. Using your own car before official training is good. Just remember to practice what your instructor has shown you. This will cement the skills.

Bit of a gap in Feb. Been busy with people retaking tests after the xmas weather probs.
