Parking Brake

Driving test review from ADI LES Automatic

Hi Noel like to share this story to help you with the book:

I had a pupil that had a driving test in Chingford.

He wanted me to sit in the back of the car whilst the test was being conducted, me being in the back made him feel more comfortable.

Whilst on the test I could see we were approaching a set of traffic lights. The traffic lights turned to red and we came to a nice smooth stop. The car was now stationery and I was watching to see my pupil put his hand brake on, but he didn't, he made no attempt whatsoever to put it on.

We were stationery at the lights for quite some time.

At the end of the test the; examiner said "I'm sorry but you haven't passed your test, would you like me to explain?"

"Yes", please my pupil replied. And the examiner said, "you didn't put on the handbrake at the traffic lights, that's the only reason, apart from that it was a good drive."

IF YOU HAVE A DRIVING INSTRUCTOR AT THE MOMENT WHO SAYS YOU DON'T NEED TO USE THE HANDBRAKE REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAVE JUST READ.

My pupil never made that mistake again.

Think ? why does a car come supplied with a handbrake. It's to secure the car. If another vehicle had hit us from behind we could have been pushed into crossing traffic because we had no handbrake applied
